The damn soil always feels dry :persevere:

Hahaha I honestly didn’t think it mattered for seedlings ??? And recommendations on how to get a better start for my seedlings stage??

Clear 16oz solo cups work well. It gives you the ability to check the root growth. But, you want to place those cups inside of opaque solo cups to keep the light away from the roots. Roots don’t like light.

Sometimes you actually don’t water enough when you first transplant…
You really have to water in your plant when you do your final transplant…
If you dont water your plants in real good at the start they will more than likely become hydrophobic and your soil will not hold moisture… :+1::wink:

Such a great tip thanks a whole lot

@Jacktheripper20896 Definitely looks like you overwatered to me. I’m a new grower and did the same thing. Advice I got and used was around 10-15mL water when they are so little. I used a medicine syringe like they give with kids medicine. They responded very well to that amount for a while.
