Well , the Humidity should be at least 60% in that stage of their lives. Each new shoot of growth is entering into that dry atmosphere, and repulsed by the dryness.

Try setting a bucket or two of water in the grow tent. Raise that humidity a bit.

You can also hang a wet cloth or towel in front of the fan. Wet it out again when it gets dry. Sort of a poor man’s humidifier but it works surprisingly well.

With autos and even photos, I go right into the forever pot once they pop.

Transplanting can be hard on them and only of limited benefit in my opinion. Not worth the trouble unless you are selecting which seedlings to cull out which I am not doing that.

Also, distilled water has no nutrients at all. Tap water usually has lots of essential minerals like iron, copper, magnesium, calcium, etc

Also, consider Jacks 321 for nutes for all plant stages. Simple, easy and cheap and has amazing results according to many growers here like myself.

Good luck!

Hey @TMC.PRE I’d move the seedlings down to the lower level and the older plants to the top self. 600w light is kinda strong for the babies.
Hanging a towel will help with low humidity. Also are you using any beneficial microbes and/or root boosters to your watering regiment?
The old soil may have lost its microbes elements.
I use Hydroguard for my DWC hydroponic system. You may want to look into the GH microbe brew.

Welcome to the community , I would be thinking about in the near future transplant to final home.
(Bigger pots) Good luck :+1:

I agree: they look pot-bound.

The larger ones look hungry. The larger ones in solo cups look ready for transplanting.
I am transplanting these. Some of the leaves, especially the larger ones / plant are a lighter green. They are in coco and I did not have the ppm high enough.

10 days after transplanting and increasing feed ppm

Your rh is pretty low and they look ready for bigger pots. Maybe try to bump up rh into the 50s if possible.

Ok then im going to transplant them today into their 5 gallon fabric pots. Using mix of ffhp ffof and strawberry fields that i just bought. Should i transplant them though even if they dont look happy?
Also figure out a way to raise the rh. I’ve opened a gallon of distilled water bottle in the tent now and sprayed mist in there but it’s at 18% when i just went down there this morning.
Its winter here so i have to use an electric space heater in my basement to keep the temps up.

Probably a little algae. I just mix it in when going to a bigger pot. I add Great White and use Tribus so it has a lot of microbes. It might even be from advanced nutrients ancient earth.

A little H2O2 diluted spray will help get that algae under control. For the long term a FF micro brew will help.
