I have week old seedlings which have been doing fine up until this point.
I have them under 32W LED grow lights set on the blue spectrum.
I have been spraying them twice a day and they are in peat pots.
They are consistently around 75 degrees.
Last night the leaves of two plants slightly drooped.
This morning 4 of the plants leaves have curled inwards and 2 others have drooped.
I am not sure if this is because of not enough water, too much light or over watering?
Please let me know guys.

Not enough water. Did you water soil to runoff before placing seed? Are you spraying them or the soil? Can spray seedling soil and domes. Don’t spray them directly.

They look dry to me. Can you put a dome over them? A clear plastic cup or water bottle? Spritz some water inside the dome and place over the plant. Also give some water to the medium in a circle around the plant but a 1/2”-1” from the stem.
Yeah, I’d say they need water. Soil looks really dry, maybe hydrophobic at this point.
Water them and dome them even a ziplock bag will work
i have a humidity dome. should i leave them all in there for their darkness period?
Dome and leave lights on 24/0 for the first ten days. This helps maintain fluid transport in the seedling which will help with the drooping.

Other have you setvon watering. Your light may be a little weak too.
how often should i be watering and what about air circulation ?
Kinda looks like your light could be lowered.
Looks like they are stretching quite a bit.
They’re too top heavy.
I mist the inside of the dome twice a day (after media is
damp) using distilled water. The action of removing dome to mist it is enough air exchange at this time.
okay thanks. with regards to lighting, i have a 32w led adjustable spectrum. what spectrum should i be using ?
I’d have that light cranked up as high as it would go. 32 watts is about right for seedlings.
Yeah that looked dry as hell , and it was getting leggy too
