Grouch started grow question 4 years ago
Plants have started their 5th node. Bottom leaves curling up slightly. I thought whoever put them in solo cups packed them in too much so I re potted into 1.5lt pots with 30% perlite 70% potting soil. Should I be concerned with bottom leaves curling?

They look nitrogen deficent. With that transplant you did, in new soil, they should be fine for a week or two. In all honesty you should have transplanted into bigger pots. Remove those two yellow curling leaves. They arent coming back and leaving them on can invite pests or mold.

Hey pop by any local walmart or hardware store buy some seaweed or kelp extract in the garden area, that seems to help with transplants and just overall micro health. And really once you start watering properly (with good drainage) you'll see that baby turn right around. You can always go pickup some fancy pants nutes and they'd probably thank you for that too. But transplanting was probably your best solution.
Good luck with those girls? Boys?

You should watch the evolution carefully, if yellowing/curling does not spread and stay only on bottom leaves, this is probably related to the repotting-stress. Some nutrients can dramatically help preventing stress, re-developing roots and give the plant just what she needs. If your plants don't recover in the next 3-5 days, you may have another issue (soil, light, airflow, nutrients..). I'll be around, good luck with these babies!

Not with the shock that they’ve been through. They are probably just adjusting to the new soil which may have been a touch hot for them
