Are My Plants Smaller Than They Should Be?

So I started germinating theses ladies exactly two weeks ago and I’m worried that they are much smaller than they should be. I can see them growing everyday but when I compare them to other plants I’ve seen after 2 weeks they seem way behind. They get about 12 hours of sunlight outdoors and haven’t started feeding nutrients yet, just plain water.

They look about right for 2 weeks to me. Once they break surface and open the first two leaves, the plant kind of stalls and takes its time. I figure it’s just working on it’s roots.

Then, at around 2 weeks, they suddenly start picking up steam! Give it another week and I bet you’ll start to notice the faster growth.

You know when they arnt going that good by the size of there beginners leaves and they look okay..give them time ..like perception said first month is slowish then all of a sudden they will take off.you could put a small fan on them to stimulate them .they look sativa.

Ok cool. They are a strain called critical mass CBD from dinafem who says it’s indicative dominant but you’re the second person to say it looks like Sativa.

To me, it looks like a hybrid...not quite skinny enough to be a full sativa and not fat enough to be a Indica. In any event, it looks healthy. Seeds take a while since once they get the dual leaves, they sit a little, grow their roots, then take off after about 3 weeks. Indicas will sometimes grow shorter and slower, at first at least.
You might want to increase the photoperiod to 18-24 hours if at all possible, since 18 hours is 50% more light energy to utilize. Longer photoperiods will also keep them shorter, since they tend to stretch during dark periods.

I wish I could increase the amount of light they get but I’m growing outdoors so that’s all up to Mother Nature.
So unless you’re in the Southern Hemisphere, the amount of sun will diminish going into the winter months. Those seedlings won’t do much between now and whenever you expect to have something to harvest, no matter what strain they are. Just sayin.

Yip. I am in the Southern Hemisphere.

Being in the southern hemisphere, your time in the sun is just starting! I think they will do fine...the sun isn't nearly as intense as it will be for you and they will surely catch up soon. Outdoors under short light, seeds develop their root systems more as it is often cooler during shorter photoperiods and they are less exposed. When it warms up and the sun gets stronger, things take off! Good Luck!!
