These seeds were planted on November 13. They are maybe 4-5 inches tall. I dont know what's going. Growing with ffof and a yehsence light in a 4x2. Temps 74-81. RH 51-61%.

Slow growth is likely in relationship to the planting date. Planting on Friday the 13th renders many complications. I recommend starting over.

much love🖖

Looks like they just need time and maybe a light upgrade unless that’s one of them new fancy COB true spec led that actually look like a blurp for whatever reason.

Real talk, what light are you using?
If my plants were not growing I would first look to the light (the main ingredient for photosynthesis)

next i would investigate the media and its relationship to the roots. My first soil mix i made myself was far too dense. I believe this got me off to a slow start.

what is your watering process like? Do you water to full saturation with run off? Do you measure the run off?

Are those 2gal pots? Plants look like they may have not responded well when you transplanted them. Make sure you are watering correctly. The lights are also contributing to the compact growth.

Can you give some watering advice please. And they are 3 gallon fabric pots, why?

You potted up to big and This usually makes the plants dry out slowly.
only water when the pots feel light.
they will recover

My light is a yehsence. Im using fox farm ocean forest that I amended with perlite. I water when the soil is dry and the pots are light. Sometimes I water to runoff and other times not. Ive only measured the runoff ph once and it 5.5. I dont have a ppm and I dont know anything about ppm.

Don’t panic. The plants look healthy. Just shocked from being transplanted into such big containers. Roots will spread, and during this time top growth can be slow. Growing requires patience.
Well I transplanted on the 12 so...

You plants are in a stall, Growth stalled when you transplanted. it can take more than 2 weed sometime for the turtle to come out of the shell so to speak.

I dont measure PPM either. I am convinced that watering to run off is important (especially with fox farm soil, ive herd of multiple cases of salt build ups in fox farm soil).

5.5 seems not bad, higher would be better in my opinion. I water until run off and measure run off PH for every watering/feeding. Consistency and routine has done well for my soil mix grow.

but like mr.G is saying, they look healthy 🤷‍♂️ And you seem to be doing many of the right things.

Do you dechlorinate your water? im not sure about the effects of this, but many growers including myself include this practice.

...Are they regular or Auto? If Auto's they could be runts.
I germed about 60 auto seeds from good seedbanks,
and the amount of runts and dead seed was shocking.
Total waste of money,time & effort.

it can be a few things, you’ll have to rule them out one by one, pest, mildew, overwatering underwatering, ph, quality of light, training LST etc, damage to roots (during transplant), airflow, fluctuations in environment temp humidity, too much touchy-feely interrupting the grow area..
next time should put the bags through the washer and dryer before using.
they should be way bigger
