Better start with a smaller pot and make a couple of transplants, if the roots are not developed all around the soil the moisture will stay there and the plant cant figh it, and the roots will die because they need a lot of oxigen in the soil...
Id use se some root stimulator with light base Veg nutes to help her (All of this having in mind you are using enought light)
Good luck !!

Wow, by the looks of it you're using coco soil and not regular soil.
Coco soil is a nightmare to work with and I feel it really is only usable by experienced growers.
So the fist thing I would do is swap that around immediately.
Secondly, your lights.
You can get very good and cheap full spectrum LED lights off ebay or Amazon and team that up with a MH ligtt.
Your reflective material.
You can also buy proper reflective material off the same sites OR buy a small grow tent.
The yellowing in the leaves is nutrient issues, as they are not getting enough.
Get Cal/Mag and also some veg stage nutrients.
If you have any more issues just message me mate.

What @MUDBUG said. Use a spray bottle to give water+calmag ASAP!

Hi @kabir065! Your soil looks very dry, are you sure you don't need to water these babies? They look thirsty... Also, please note that aluminium foil is known to burn plants, indeed, aluminium creates heat spots, white paint would be harmless and more efficient (or even better, mylar sheets). If you're afraid of watering because you did over-water in the past weeks, just spray them in the early morning and when your lamp turns off. What's the relative humidity inside your grow room? If you manage to push the RH above 60%, you will dramatically increase your chances of success, RH is one of the most important growth factor. I increase my RH with the help of a mister/atomizer, 20 min on & 20min off (to cool down its content) all day long. A few drops of essential oils in your mister will even help to prevent pests/bugs invasion. Hope this will help, keep us up-to-date and happy growing :facepunch:

hi there, your plant looks burnt because it is. the aluminum foil that you're using is focussing the light in a bad way. Usually you want to use mylar fabric because it reflects less, if that makes sense ? hope this helps, the little ones will bounce back I hope ! :rocket:

Hello ! Lemon is one of the worst thing to use as a PH down , it will first low your mixture PH but will also make PH fluctuate in your soil quickly after. To be honest with you I would 're start with 2 fresh seeds and kill these one. I would also restart in smaller pot to make the watering easier and so to avoid over watering. If you still wanna keep them then it could be longer to make them bounce back than to obtain 2 nice plants from seeds. I hope it will help you :grin::+1:

Plants are hurting but won't die. Weed is a really reslilient plant :blush: looks like 3 things things to me. One of which you already addressed, the over watering. Let plants dry and as @experimentgreen said stick a plastic cup over. Second is that set up looks like it get too hot for seedlings. Maybe raise lights? Or shut some off? What's the temps? Lastly if you use tap water and live in a city chances are the water is treated with chlorine. Chlorine fux up plants something bad. Solution to this:. Let tap water sit at room temp for 24 hrs per gallon. Also adding an air stone can speed up process as well as make plants very happy getting freshyl oxygenated water! I've been growing with city water for years learned this lesson the hard way

Hey there, so in my opinion a ph of 6.8 isn't bad, thats what mine ran at the whole grows basically. Sometimes having the babies in smaller containers first is good, like a cup etc because you can lower risk of over watered, muddy soil 2 common causes of yellow seedlings. Also i know a lot of people stand by the 24 hour veg period, but i tend to think plants enjoy a little dark period for rest, so even 20/4 or many do 18/6. I wouldnt give up on them yet, whats your humidity like and temp? If you could get them in a 70 degree range + and increase the moisture in the air even by placing a plastic cup or bottle over the top with a couple air holes and then mist the cup with a spray bottle.
I've also read to beware of tin foil as it often causes heat pockets and can burn your plants, unfortunately its not as efficient as mylar.
I hope they can pull through and boost back up. Happy growing. :v:

They are underwatered the color can be from both ph has nothing to do with it get a spray bottle add calmag at 10 ml a gallon like now use that spray bottle to water use exactly a half inch of the water so fill up your bottle and mark the top go a 1/2 down mark a line spray all the soil till u hit that mark u need calmag ASAP i have a plant that started like this look at Mello Yellow in my black berry look how she came back dont give up just yet lets see wat the next 7 days brings:crossed_fingers::crossed_fingers::crossed_fingers::crossed_fingers:

Hi, no good news arrive, Start new, put away aluminium foil , take whie Paper/ plastic instead. give the pots a good drainage. water with small shot glasses, a plant needs around 1cl ( 10 ml) per 24 hours in that stage. you can translant her in fresh ( dry) prefertilised seedlingssoil. I dont know what soil you are using atm
