Leaves going lighter on the tips?

Hey guys, first timer here. Basically, the plant hasn’t had the best of starts, buts it finally has a decent LED light. I’ve noticed that the end of the leaves are going lighter green though, and the inside of the leaves are a darker green. Does anyone know the issue?
Also, do you think I’ve trimmed it enough, as I’m a bit worried to cut any more of the big fan leaves off, invade I cause the plant harm.
Cheers in advance dudes!

Ohh, ps.
The extra node on top grew after I trimmed it recently. That’s why the cola looks tiny xD

Could be nute burn. That’s what it looks like judging by the other spots she has on leaves in the pics.

@Covertgrower what do you think bud? Maybe I’m wrong?

Just a heads up you dont spray water with lights on. It will cause lensing, basically the water in the light is like a magnifying glass in the sun. Leaves looked wet in a couple pics so thought I would mention that


Stop spraying the plant.

Believe it or not, this is the first time I’ve sprayed it. I sprayed it with the lights on, as I was about to turn the lights off, but thought I’d just take a couple pictures to show people on here, so it’s not due to the spraying.
I haven’t have it nutrients for about 2 weeks, so I don’t think its that either.
Is my LED light maybe too far away?
Cheers guys

I wouldn’t worry too much until they spread more then from the very tips I’d throw 1 Tbsp of epsom salt and molasses in each gallon of your next water in case it was sulfur iron or magnesium otherwise I’d just write it off as one of a million minor things
