Hi everyone, I’m a new grower and my baby is just starting to pick up on her growth. I’ve noticed a little bit of yellow happening in the middle of her. Is this anything to worry about or am I just being a helicopter parent? She was planted on 3/20 and fully sprouted about 4/5 days later.

I’m using the Pot for Pot .5 gal system which is a super soil on the bottom, coco coir on top, and she was planted in a jiffy cube which is planted within the coir.

My advice would be to not mix soil and coco, you have two different ec's, two different rates of drying/moisture retention, different ph. On top of that, coco strips nutrients so it needs daily feeding. That's going to cause issues with the soil part. Personally I would start over but maybe someone here has had success with something similar.

Definitely makes sense! I found this Pot for Pot system online awhile back and thought it was neat to at least try it out. Going forward I plan to use just a soil medium.

Just let it grow, you can't really diagnose anything at that early stage, it's still mainly living on the lunchbox that came inside the seed, I would stick a humidity dome on it for a few days.

One of the worst things you can do is stare at your seedlings and think of ways you can "help." Don't over-water (ever) and don't feed it for the first week.
I dont think you read his post, he's in coco so the coco should be staying 80-90% saturated, it should not be drying out. Seedling hasn't reached the soil yet
