Why is it taking so long?

It has been about a month now of my indoor grow and my seedlings are still on their 3rd set of leaves. Why is it taking so long?

We need a little more info before I or anyone could make an assessment. Soil or hydro, what type and intensity of lighting, what type seeds, what lighting schedule etc.

I believe they have a trouble ticket on here to fill out that will help in assessing your problem.

So it is a homemade soil base. And the problem is I know nothing about the seeds because they were given to me. During the day I put them in a south facing window and during the night all 6 plants are under a light that has about 6500k of light for about 10 hours or whatever that means… I’m a beginner at this so I honestly don’t know what to do or what lights are what so I’m just kind of experimenting. I am watering them with distilled water for now as well. It has been about a month now. And my best plant is just getting its 3rd set of leaves.

I don’t want to over water too. So tips on watering would be nice as well.

how old are they??? Hammer

About a month maybe
