  2. I dont see any perlite in your media my guess is over watering and maybe the soil is too hot for the little seedlings, try transplanting into a seed starting soil which has no nutrients and good drainage. they need no extra food tell there cotyledons fall off.
  3. I think i got.the wrong dirt

  4. I think fox farms light warrior is the product they reccomend
  5. that is a nute burn.

    light warrior is not nearly as strong as Ocean Forrest but i have seen a few times where it has burnt seedlings.

    Flush the cups and then let them dry out a decent amount and you will be good to go.
  6. thanks for all the responces what would be the safest to try and save them if flushing i dont know how to do that or transplant

  7. the rule of thumb for a flush is to water the plant 3x the volume of the container one time, then let it dry out to the point of the cup being significantly lighter but not dry enough to make the plant droopy, due to being thirsty.
