To elaborate, forget about the “finger up to the knuckle” test. All the water settles on the bottom where the roots are. Did you put any drainage in the bottom, perlite, rocks, a hole?
 
I drilled a lot of holes and i have rocks at the bottom they drain really well i just watered before i took the pictures yesterday.
 
They look good and healthy! Don't overdo the nutes as that mix looks pretty loaded from the factory. Make sure you've got adequate drainage and don't go overboard with watering. You could mix some extra perlite into the top layer if you're worried about water retention. Keep the environment stable and give the plant enough energy and you'll be right - well done.

At 3-4 weeks you're going to finish off the "hot" in your FFOF, and can move to full strength nutes.

I think the old adage that purple stems is a sign of low N, is kind of an old wives tale. Yes it can mean you're short of N, but some strains just have purple stems and will never go green (even if you smoke em with a ton of N). Hopefully someone who knows you strain can help.

Too young, growth is beneath before it pushes up .... Be patient then... Shit will take time to be beneficial, be patient... It's a process

Anybody still listening, that pot ain't gonna make it grow... Spend $60 a pair to see. That pot don't guarentee yield. It might help if you have heat issues or can't water right... Just saying that pot ain't gonna solve your problems. Listen to the plant, when you can read it it'll produce! Trial and error
