Yea I had a heck of a time with my plants in miracle gro potting soil, I wonder how much of a root base yours has yet. maybe you can do a transplant and lightly remove extra of the current medium and put it in better soil like I keep hearing about ocean forest is good soil, then there's promix which is basically a soil less medium so there's no nutrition in it or minimal if any. It's sphagnum moss and perlite and some mycorrhizae and somethin else I don't recall lol but that promix is what I use

Jus monitor , if it is curling the leaf and burning the tips, I would flush it. Depending on the size of you need to transplant in the future . I’d transplant into a diff soil with the proper npk ratio
Is my npk ratio not proper?

It's still gonna be a tough grow even after a flush or four lol I'd switch if possible without hurting the roots too much

How big is the plant. Look up YouTube videos on how to properly transplant. I usually water. And then flip it upside down. The loose dirt that does not have roots usually.falls off and you will have a rootball. You can shake it lightly and then transplant.

Agreed on using better soil, but digging it up and transplanting it will cause a lot of stress as well. Maybe get the new media and just start another seed and grow them both out. Try starting the next one in a plastic cup, then go to a 1 gal then a 5 gal.

Your overwatering like previous growers said.
Aim for 20% runoff next time and measure ppm and ph. Might take a few days to dry miracle grow out with a plant that small.
Your fine.👌

I FIGURED IT WOULD GROW BETTER AND BIGGER IN ITS HOME FROM SPROUT INSTEAD OF SMALLER THEN BiGGER 1 MAYBE I WAS WRONG?

Both can work, but its much easier to overwater when you have a small plant in a big container.

Thanks, just get worried like a parent lol. I had started nutrients too early I’m guessing and then I had to flush to not actually hurt the plant so maybe back to back watering did it.
You are likely overwatering it. There is no need to be fertilizing this plant for some time. More plants die from love than neglect. Less is more.

Figured that. Yeah I tested ph in soil, fertilizing it threw it way out of wack. I transplanted into new soil. Earthworm casting blend with blood and bone meal. To promote root growth I dipped roots into hormone considering I had to mess with root ball. Ph was way off . Thanks a lot yall
