    Not only do they need to be transplanted but they look like they can use some nitrogen and calmag.What are you feeding them?

     How old are these babies? The young plant in the middle looks like it needs to be transplanted asap! It looks like it's getting a little root bound

      The one in the middle is a month old from seed and the small ones on the side are about 2 weeks old

      That one needs to be in its own pot by now. The other ones will be ready to transplant real soon. Try to use the same type of soil if you can. This will help cut down on shock.

    Alright awesome I appreciate the insight. Do you think that could be why it is off in color ?

      Could be! Your young plant has or about to use up the nutes in the soil in the small Solo cups. PS don't over water too!!

      You need to get calmag as soon as you can. Is that soil or coco?
      I grow in coco and that is the 1st thing I feed seedlings if it's soil other members can better answer. Sorry to butt in

    Looks to me like these plants need to be transplanted into final containers and given some cal mag and nitrogen. The plant in the middle looks like it needs both of these and may be root bound as well. Take these steps and give us an update in about two weeks so we know how things are going. Peace

    Looks like the guys have you covered, but just for your reference, the general rule of thumb I follow is that when the leaves reach the outside edge of the cup (or smaller growing container if you start them in smaller containers) it’s time to transplant. I prefer to start my grows in their final containers, but I follow this for my veggies every year.

      Jeff I think it works really well to start and end in the same container, it leaves less room for error and less stress on the girls. I germinate in paper towels and straight into their final pots they go. I really don’t have any complaints doing it this way :)

    Is anybody familiar with the jungle juice grow 2 part solution? It looks like it has calcium and magnesium in it maybe this would work for cal-mag? Or need to get a a specific nutrient just for cal mag?
