Not sure what's happining

I have a grow ace 1000 watt double ended light about 5 feet up from my plants with a box fan on medium 2 feet off ground to keep some heat in the air from the plants. I have 5 super skunk. 4 big bud. 3 chocolope and 3 anmnesia haze. That’s 15 total that I have gotten up about 3 to4 inches from sprouting. They are 3 weeks old now and seem to be small to me. The leaves don’t seem to be growing in size. They have 4 sets of leaves on each one. But now the bottom leaves have turned yellow and the top ones are curling up like its to hot for them but I know it’s not. My temp in the closet is 70 to 80 and humidity is 45 to 55. I know it will take a little longer for them to get up in size because of the light being so far away. I have them in organic soil in red solo cups with holes for drainage. I’ve only seen the leaves curl later me this from heat. I know that it is not from heat though right now! Can you give me your thoughts on this problem? I hope I’ve explained my issues enough to get feedback. I think that maybe my soil has something to do with it .maybe soil staying wet for to long in bottom of cup

What type of soil nutes added ?
I’m think you might be root bound
3 weeks old With 4 sets of leaves ?

I haven’t figured out how to do that! Sorry

Cool I think I got them on here. I haven’t start any nutrients yet. I was scared to burn them up Today I repotted in 1 gal pots with dirt from my grandmothers compost bin. I put bag of perlite mixed up with it I’ll put pictures of that when I get home tonight yes my soil was really too wet before reporting I have micro Veg. And bloom addatives I will give the name when I get home. Thankyou! For your info. Will see what they look like in couple days. My new soil mix seemed damp enough to not add water I’m gonna check and see if i need to add a few sprays with bottle. Wanna let the roots dry out a bit before watering fan may have it about ready to add a little water in a few hours. I’ll get back on here latertonight

After doing this repotting today. I’m thinking maybe spraying them with the water bottle water may have sat on them and maybe acted like a magnafying lense and burned them Is that possible?

It is a 1000 watt light! Oh yeh. My roots were a dirty yellow when repotting I really hope this fixes my problem. I had holes in the solo cups. Might not have been big enough or not enough holes I had a 1/4 inch hole in the center and 3 little triangle holes in the bottom corners thankyall for responding to me! I’ll be back later!.

Looks to me like you have a ph problem for sure


The base of the main stem in one photo is on the blueish side may be that is a clue ? I don’t know, what do you think about it @Majiktoker ? (just asking, maybe I am to curious, lol :sweat_smile: :wink:, i have nothing else to do tonight :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::sunglasses::v:)

I blew up the pictures you can see the stems, they look fine not healthy but not blue either they look kinda whitish brown to me hard to tell with bad light @Niala
