Need a little help reading the leaves

I have three WWA seedlings 7 days old today.Two are just at 1" tall the 1st to emerge by 16 hours is@ 1.3" tall. The pots are getting a little light but Im resisting the temptation to water as it was but days ago i lost 3 in peat pots from excess moisture. Two of them are busy working on 2nd set of real leaves and the third looks on like someone just handed her a training bra in front of the boyfriend. Frozen with fear. None the less ,yesterday my tallest specimen received a ml or so of fish poop stew as her pot was the lightest and a few hours later she was drooping those leaves. I removed the humidity dome and grabbed the fan to try to effect some evaporation of course assuming the additional moisture was either too rich (25% recommended strength) orn the moisture was un needed all together.As we approached midnight(That’s when my KIND X40 Veg (@ 180-200 micromoles/m2/s ) shuts down after 18 hours and we go to a 40 W full spectrum white led @ 220 micromoles/m2/s for 6 hours. Well she was still whining when we woke this morning but over the last 5-7 hours those leaves are ironing board flat and sticking straight out as if it is some sort of satellite. As is the next healthiest specimen.color looks good with the exception of a little water staining on each. They are still sporting the glad bag humidity domes.So far with the exception of 1 sip of fish poop its been nothing but bph corrected RO water. So what dom you think?

Well here goes nothing. having a hell of a time loading images but our internet is crap…remote locale.


trying to load more now
Is it a big deal that my seedlings are not really out of the pot and not getting what tiny circulation is available?

@jorkvilleyoe Gm you plants looking good don’t worry so far looking healthy and tall,
Yellow marks looking probably from water them, some drop feel on the leaf and burn the leaf nothing to worry just water the soil

Just little light stress, nothing to worry :green_heart::christmas_tree:

Happy growing :metal::+1::green_heart::christmas_tree:

would i be ok watering very conservatively with a 25% strength solution of fish poop?
Im talking like a ml or two every 3rd day and straight 7.0 ph and EC=0 H20 otherwise as needed.
What say you?OI wasnt going to start nutes for another week at least unless advised otherwise.


this poor thing was busy treading water unable to get its head above water.Ive been staring at the top of those cotyledons for 3-4 days and knew something was up.
it was also running on one cylinder with a cotyledon unable to shed its hull as if it was glued on.I gave it a drop of water ,gave it 2 minutes and took it off once the moisture had loosened that naturally occuring adhesive.
Will it survive?
I for one certainly hope so,thats gotta be some good xy and z when you cant get step 1 correct.

Looks to me like you might be over watering alittle bit, In my solo cups, when they’re that little, I measure out exactly 10 ml of water/nutrient mix. Then water in a circle around them. As they grow bigger, I got to 20ml then 1/8 cup, so on. I am in coco however. Hope that helps. It will help the little ones grow faster and healthier.

@Highwayman420 So you water 10 ml of H2O and nutrients?
Once a week/day? Per plant?
I’m doing the indirect circle thing…
My plants are just 7 days old rt now with 2nd set of real leaves just showing up.
What Par value are you running your lights at?
I’m keeping them under humidity domes with slits cut in each side because the humidity level inside the tent is only about 29-31% and thats with a little tray of water in there . The humidity domes are simply cheapie sandwich bags with rubber bands keeping a decent seal at the top of the solo cup.
They only take 5-10 PAR off for the effort.

Ya once they are past the early stages and have leaves. Until then, I spray the coco damp and spray the inside of the dome. I use nutrients from the time I begin actually watering to 2 weeks before harvest.

I use this as a baseline measurement guide, but adjust as the plant tells me.

and what determines your target DLI or range?

Also you’re in peat I am in soil of Ph 7.5 and EC .58 trying to get the ph down .need to trans plant in 4-5 days.
