Week 2
Leaves. Curl down
Experimentgreen answered grow question 3 years ago
My indoor seedlings did just this same thing, small discoloration and mild curling. I've read its pretty common for the cotyledons to turn out this way and not to worry. Just make sure you've got decent humidity(maybe a cup over the top), good drainage holes, a good temperature and decent light but not excessively intense . I too have a basement and wow is it difficult to keep up the overall room temperature unless i have a heater run nonstop. The best i can do is have them in a tent or enclosed space and allow my lights to help with the temp and then boost mildly with a heater during the dark hours.
I see your plants looking healthy this week so good job on keeping up the battle.:v:

I’m a bit concerned with your nutrient choices. I’m not positive but I believe those nutrients are best for while you’re in flower.

Have you done your homework at ?

I don't know how much space you have, but i would pop some more beans and get another one going when you get the humidity and temperatures controlled in your environment. As seedlings they need a lot of air flow to the roots. So definitely poke some decent holes in those cups. Once the plant is healthy enough to be transplanted into a larger medium, is when you really need start feeding a high amount of nitrogen. Make sure you follow a strict feeding schedule of the right nutrients during the right times of the plants cycles. The reason i say to start a new plant is because once you correct your environment your plants will grow much much better and faster. I personally would have let that plant pictured veg for a lot longer or at least until it had a lot more nodes. Look into training your plants as well. Low stress training is the easiest. This will ensure that you have a nice even canopy that will yield a great deal more of quality flowers. Your plants right now are curling for a lot of reasons. Mainly not strong roots and temperatures not being right. Just do some reading and if you have any questions were all here to help. good luck. you got this!

@clepage4 You want holes in your cups when you do this with seedlings or the water doesn't drain and the plant cant drink that much when its this young. What happens is the water stays and blocks the oxygen from getting to the roots properly. If you can put a humidity domes over your young plants to raise the Humidity and PH the water to about 6. Best of luck :sunglasses:

First thing pop holes in that cup so your roots can breath 2nd i would go to 12 hours on your light for a couple days maybe even 10 hrs on just for a couple days till she has more leaf mass u wasting light and stressing her one you drop your light schedule your rh will automatically go up shes gonna be just fine dont over think it let her do her thing ph well i see things differently pop them holes give her rest and u good to go:ok_hand::ok_hand::ok_hand::ok_hand:

hey man what matters is VPD that's why we measure temp and humidity, look it up but basically you want higher humidity and temperature to speed up the metabolism of the plant right up to where you want it which is higher rather than lower. So what you can do is put a see through dome on top of the seedling to keep in that moisture and raise the temp just a bit. As the plant grows you can ditch the dome, and the bigger plants will do a better job upping the humidity. Anyway it's all about the VPD and the plant's metabolism. You tell me ! :rocket:

Hi @Clepage4! Increase your RH up to 70-80% (with the help of a mister / humidifier). Watch your pH, this will be one of the most important factor for the whole run (you want it around ~6.2 in soil). You probably also need to increase your lamp-to-plant distance a bit to prevent that baby from burning, and shorten the distance later if plant is healthy. Finally, a quick advice for your next run: consider dropping at least 2 seeds even if you only have room for 1: genetics and random issues in the first days of growth can make 2 seedlings from the same strain look very different, and I like to keep the strongest/fastest one. Hope this will help, keep us up-to-date and happy growing :facepunch:

Hello ! Droopy leaves are an under or over watering symptom and here I have the feeling that under watering is not the issue : soil looks moist . Now just some little adjustments : for example your temperatures are a bit low so try to make them a bit higher ( during night and day ) . Your relative humidity level is too low for that stage : you should be around 70% for a better start so next time you can cut a bottle of water , makes 3 little holes at the bottom and use it as a humidity domeby putting it under the young seedling. I hope it will help you :grin::+1:
