The sprouted out of the soil on 1.9.22
Purple Majik Ethos Genetics
Happy Frog soil.
I use a spray bottle to spritz the top of the soil usually once in the early a.m. and I lightly spray before lights off.
I would be shocked if it was overwatering, I have 3 other strains (Candy Store) doing well under the same care. The 3 droppy seedlings are all Purple Majik.. any info will be appreciated.

Too wet or dry, only you can tell by weighing it. Whats the temp and humidity?

Sounds right. If you weigh a cup it should be below 200g before watering.

Yeah, a gram equals a ml, and don’t use a sprayer, thats what fungus gnats love. Get the water deep and keep the surface dry.
I add 50 grams, now it reads 140 grams is that wet enough? And how low should I wait to water it whenbit drops to around 80 or 70 grams?

Twenty minutes should show some improvement. I would give her another 50g then use the 140 for a baseline dry weight.

@Aqua Man has a time lapse video here somewhere you can actually watch these girls recover in front of your eyes

If you have your soil good and moist in the cups when you plant your seeds, it's going to be a good minute before you need to water again. Top watering can be tricky (as you've seen). So what I found that works very well for me goes against what most people will tell you. But:

I use the 16 oz cups. When the cup feels lite... And I mean LIGHT, I place them on a tray (each on its own tray). Then I fill the tray with water at 25% of the total volume of the cup (1/2 cup for 16 oz volume). I leave the cup in the tray for a maximum of 30 minutes then remove - regardless of how much water is still in the tray.

Zero sagging leafs and zero growth problems.

There's other ways as many have told you, but my method works best for me.
