I have attached a video with the general information, but I am using 70% COCO Coir & 30% Perlite, making sure I am not overwatering even though its hard to over water in Coco, great ventilation, temps and Humidity absolutely fine.... Can't seem to think what the issue could be unless it's a genetics issue? 🤔

Out of the 5 seedlings only 1 looks promising...... I mean they all look healthy... Just the leaning to one side, but I will give them time it's only been 5 days since they sprouted from the top of the coco.

But if anybody has gone through this issue before please advise if you can.

Happy Growing Guys

They look alright but they do look like they are stretching a tiny bit. Maybe lower the light just a little bit.

I had one seedling recently that was leaning and growing weird but it sorted itself out within a week. Your seedlings should be looking fine soon.

Put a fan on them so that they move a tiny bit. That will cause the stems to get stronger. Don't blast them with the fan, it will wind burn the leaves. There is nothing wrong with any of them.
The fan has been on them from the beginning, maybe not too much, I just don't want to end up with stunted plants! Because the other set of seedlings came out fine and both set of seedlings are in the same environment! 🤔 But I will see how I get on. Thanks bro 👍🏾

No your looking at the wrong seedlings, mine are not stretching at all, just leaning to the side for whatever reason, when I gave em less light so they could stretch..... They didn't! Just leaning to one side!

Up the light bro or put the light bit closer. They stretch for more light. Thats kool wen repot jus buryy the stem. and leaning is towards light aswell. Jus support them like you have been

Wen i say up light mean turn light wattage up. . Didnt make that clear then. And need to be directly under light especially if not on that powerful.

Ive had them under house lamp for few days before and they leaned to side aswell.

The most common cause of legginess is an insufficient or uneven access to light. When the light source is too dim or distant, seedlings grow quickly in height to get closer to that light. ... “They get leggy because they're looking for the light, so a lot of times you'll see them bending towards the light.

They wil be fine the bro.

Thanks for clarifying bro, and I have done that from last night, upped the light intensity... Not too much obviously, I did put them away from the light so they could get abit of stretch the way I like..... Like I did with the other seedlings but these guys didn't react the same.

But I will if they improve in the next couple of days 👍🏾 Thanks Bro

Yeah that makes alot of sense, maybe I gave them too little light that they were searching in other directions 😅 I just hope they don't turn out stunted!
