    (2) 24w 1800 lumen led strip

    How far from the lights?
    What is your watering frequency and source of water?
    Everyday, these plants are drying the mix in about 8-10 hours.

    What, how much and when was it fed? NPK?

    What is the medium/runoff pH and PPM if in hydro?
    Not sure have mixed supersoil to transplant in.

    What are the temps and humidity in the room?
    Not positive

    What size pots?
    Plastic starter plugs.

    Any bugs? Look real close.
    Any other pertinent info?
    Stem started looking twisted after second day. Now there is what appears to be a wound on the stem where it looked twisted before. It's also smaller than it's sister that sprouted the same day.
  2. You said you're watering every day? That's the issue.
  3. Thanks for your time. Not watering, just spraying until moist. They dry up quick the plastic square is only 1"×1"×2". I was under the impression that seedlings medium was to be kept moist.

    The other ones are doing good. It's probably nothing its just kind of wierd, like a cut. I'll just bury that part when I transplant into soil.
  4. Google "damping off". Caused by overwatering. Always water thoroughly and let dry very well before watering again.
