Help! These are looking sad

These are the two I have left. The plant on the right is about 2wk old on the left
3+ wk old. At the moment they both are recovering from over watering. The Ph is approx 7.1
The plant on the left is going on 1month will it get better or should I pull it?

i am new so i am not going to help you, i will ask a couple of questions that i think the gang will want to know. What soil u using, what light, u adding anything yet besides a little water (be careful not to overwater). good luck, i’m sure someone will be along soon to help you out. use the @ sign in front of name to get a specific persons attention. @merlin1106 @MattyBear @dbrn32


I would wait it out. Get ur ph down to 6.5 and if u notice the round set of leaves that are turning yellow is their food at seedling stage. It is turning yellow which means it used up it food so depending on what soil ur in u may want to start feeding them lighly. They may be building their roots at the moment and thats why they seem to not b growing. They will tho. Others will help with more info

More info is needed. If you could answer @monkman questions, then that will give us a start :v::bear:


@Liljoe: It is potting soil

Some strains take a little bit longer, the one on the left look like it already has some yellowing… did you use Pete pods and transfer them into the cups? Definitely need to know more information still though. Also what’s your overall goal? But I agree with @Liljoe, I’d get your pH down.

I was only going to add: if they are autos then I’d start over. They will not amount to much for yield.

I’m using potting soil for seeds. I mixed a little plant food with ½ gallon water I did over water a little. Lights are 2cfl bulbs and a plant grow light Right now I only have one little clamp fixture. The seeds are blackberry kush (fem).

Next week I get my led from eBay and a 16x16x48 grow tent I figured I’d transplant them at that time. This setup is just for personal 1-2 plants @ a time

Photo attached:

Seedlings don’t need any nutrients for quite a while.

Let them dry out a bit and don’t feed them anymore.


Thanks for your help

I wouldn’t transplant them until the leaves over hang the side of the cup they are currently in.

Also, I don’t see any holes in your cups. There should be a lot, around the bottom. They could also use domes with a light mist of water in them and more light.

Give them a spray more than you water. The roots need to build up before they can drink the water.

Put a dome on them and spray them only. Also just spray the soil.
