It appears as though you are having a Ph issue. Adjust your ph to be around 6.5. This would be the most ideal range for your plant growing in soil. No need to add any nutrients at this stage. Water with roughly 1-2 cups of water at most and wait until the soil is thoroughly dry. The high temperatures as well are potentially causing some issues. This is why you are seeing some of the leaf tips curl upwards. I see that your TDS are at around 200. If you are not adding any nutrients I would suggest trying to use Reverse Osmosis water. This will help prevent nutrient lockout in the future and you can supplement any nutrients you need yourself. Hope this helps and good luck!

Hi there! Wrong pH, overwatering and a hot environment made your plant look very sad, but she's not dead yet so it's time to react quickly and save her! First, I would let the soil dry because it looks very wet, roots need to be in a dry/wet cycle to develop properly and spread to search for water. Secondly, try to decrease your temperature, hot temps and high relative humidity lead to curly leaves and unhealthy plant, try to stick to 25°C with a 50% relative humidity level. Finally, stop giving any nutrients until new healthy leaves/stems appear, such young plants don't need anything but a good environment and maybe some roots-stimulator, so wait until the 3rd node has developed to give her fertilizers. Hope this helps, keep us up-to-date so we can help you adjusting your parameters, and happy growing!

There's a couple of issues that you can correct and the yellow spots can be a number of things: 1. wrong pH (most probable cause), keep you pH between 6 and 7, 6.5 is ideal, 5.3 is too low, If you don't have pH up solution, you can use baking soda to raise water pH (apple vinegar can be used as pH down); 2. You mention an EC of 0.4 (200 PPM), if you are feeding, then stop doing it, the plant is too young. If that value is from your tap water, it could have too much calcium (sometimes too much calcium gives seedlings spots on leaves). 3. You post a daily watering of 0.15 gal, for that young seedling, that's too much, give a glass of water (250 cc / 8 oz) of water every 4 or 5 days, when the soil is dry, then repeat, when it takes only 2 days to dry, double the water dose, again it should last 4 or 5 days, water again with same amount, when it takes only 2 days to dry, you double again. Don't saturate the pot with water while the plant is this small, you will literally drown the plant, preventing it from taking oxygen.
