Here are pics of the soil in the bag, soil in the pot, watered soil in the pot, the jiffy pellet container, and the little setup.
They are currently on 24hr schedule, when do you suggest changing this?

Personally, I'd leave them under the 24 hour light until you're ready to move them out. I don't bother stepping down the hours. My plants just seem happy to be under the real sun when I move them out. But that's just me...
Have you removed the plastic wrap yet? I know that seedling is going to want lots of fresh air.
I live in Norcal as well, when do you suggest putting them outside.... i was thinking 4/20 but will they be good under 24/0 untill then?
4/20 should be perfect. And yeah, there's no reason not to leave them under 24 hour light IMO. Faster growth for bigger starts! Some people say 18/6 is better for root development, but I have nice healthy root systems on my 24/7 plants. It's all about preference really. 24/7-18/6 either way you'll be fine as long as you keep the lighting consistent.
So the other 4 seeds I put inside of the Jiffy Peat pellets. I did not do a germination process other than just plopping them inside the pellets(when they were soaked, of course). One of the seeds rooted through the bag and the other two did not. I put the one that rooted inside the taller container(3rd from the left) figuring it might do well. They do not look so healthy though. They look yellowish/pale. But we will see how it goes!
I am waiting on my delivery Chinese food.....all this tension!
Peat pellets are the wrong PH for marijuana. That's probably why you're having problems with your seedlings. The things most growers use that look like peat pellets are actually rapid rooters and are less acidic. I don't recommend any of the jiffy products for growing buds. You're better off germinating in a wet paper towel and planting them straight into dirt when they pop and have roots about an half inch long. Usually about a day after they first crack.
