Should I avoid getting my leaves wet when I water?

Will water sitting on the leaves cause any type of leaf burn? Should I blot the leaves dry with a tissue after watering? My light is an HLG 260W QB V2 rspec turned half way up and 24" from the plant.

Just try not to splash on the leaves.
Accidentally burning a few leaves will be ok. They’ll just be ugly.


Water drops act like a magnifying glass and can burn spots on leaves and as Drinkslinger said will live but look ugly. Keep water off the leaves to avoid this.
