Is this a start of a problem?


#1

Is the yellowing of the baby leafs normal or is this a deficiency from lack of magnesium, nitrogen or whatever in the soil?


#2

I have crushed egg shells in the soil, peeled banana, it is indeed miracle grow (I’ve heard this isn’t a sufficient soil) thanks for the reply. Also, is putting tinfoil near the soil a good idea to reflect more light?


#3

The yellowing of the feeder leaves is normal. The miracle grow soil is bad, you should get some better soil soon and transplant soon or you can run in s lot of problems later on because of the time release nutrients


#4

And plants only use light from the top of the leaves so any light hitting the bottom is a waste

If you are going to use miracle grow soil I wouldn’t give the plants anything but water for now . Don’t over water . Your plants are still very young and I don’t think they need a lot of nutrients yet . MG can cause you problems later . The first set of leaves will die and fall off as the plant get older . I hope this helps some .

Welcome to the forum @Knivie The plants looks healthy to me. Miracle grow is not a good soil to grow in due to the time release nutes. If your in a small pot you can transplant to a big pot with some good soil in it. A couple good flushes along the way and u should be fine. Next time you’ll know…
Good Luck with your grow
