HELP! Newby here....sighi

Help!! My leaves are turning yellow. I’m a Newby but I’m doing something wrong. This pic is my last 3 seedlings, the other 12 didn’t make it due to my ignorance. However, these plants are over a month old! And there only about 1 1/2 inches. WHAT AM I DOING WRONG!?! I keep the water between a 5-6 Ph balance. I used organic filler, the light stays on at least 12 hours a day and I did my first organic fertilizer of fish water. I just don’t get it…

Get them out of those pots and into a larger home. I use fabric pots. I start my seedlings and rooted clones in quart bags.


Welcome to the forum.

Couple of comments.

Roots need room to grow. Fill those pots up with soil.

They are overwatered, and this is probably the reason for little progress. Seedlings need only a couple ml of water a day. Overwatering can lead to damping off (root rot.)

They are stretching and asking for more light.

I suggest transplanting them to a bigger pot with a proper cannabis soil such as a Fox Farm product, Roots Organics, or Black Magic.

They should be given water with a pH between 6.3 and 6.8.

Be careful about your watering. Seedlings need very little water.


**THANK YOU! I will try all of these suggestions


I’m curious as to what kind of light you are using.
Can you post a pic of it ?

I’m thinking it might not be adequate


I’m wondering what strain, and auto or photo??? Why 12/12?


Yup, overwatered and need more soil. At that stage I literally water them 1 TABLESPOON almost every day, but if soils is damp I don’t water. They will damp off and there is no recovering if that happens

Welcome to the forum a lot of great advice so far
I would also bury part of the stem when transplanting and changing light to 18 on 6 off
Good luck with your grow!

I would say they are over watered as well.
