They are stretching a Lil.
What type of light are you using?
The2need a Lil more intensity, other than that they look good. Need to go ahead and transplant. While your at it go ahead and bury the stem a Lil bit. Up to the bottom (feeder) leaves @bab315

They need more light. Don’t forget to pull the wrap off of the peat pellet when you transplant if you’re growing in soil.

i’m using 45 watt led and t 5 how large can i go with out burning them , i got 65 watt led bulbs on clamps 2 fans ? thanks for your help

My seed starter uses 8 x 15 watt LED spots (90 watt) with the covers removed which is around 120 actual watts from the wall. Once they get big enough to have a few sets of leaves, I put them under a 5 t5 setup I made.

thats nice how far away you keep from tops of leaves ?

I can put the seed starter lights within 6" of the plants because the LED spots put off almost no heat. I was using 8 x 23 watt CFls and had to keep the lights about 18" because of heat. When I transplant and go to the t5 setup, I keep them about 18" and they seem to like it.

I think I agree with @skgrower, you have plenty of room to get them a little closer.

Hey @bab315, try to keep everything to the one thread. Making multiple topics will actually make it harder for us to get you the help you need. Cheers!

THANKS newbie

3 highs need help bro. Bug buds started dying 8 days after transplant

looks good day 5 of transplant day 8 all 9 shrunk and withered. Ph was low
Raised to 5.4 using compost and soil what should I do?

For soil you want to be at 6.5 or so. Your ph is definitely too low! Flush the soil til you’re in the 6.4-6.6 range, then feed lightly with 6.5 and leave it be for a few days.
