Did I plant too deep. I used jiffy pellet, stored in a dark cupboard and it curled down, should I give it time or will it need some help.
There was a lump that it had to push through I was worried about it but thought it would work.
This is my 2nd attempt and not having much luck. Zkittlezwtf.jpg

She’s coming up bro! Get some light on her now as they can photosynthesise from now on. Itll
Green up them yellow cotelydons.

Also don’t over water that jiffy pellet!

are you planing on transplanting it yea?
Ok I'll start a 18\6 light cycle. It sprouted on the 5th day.
I plan to put the pellet in a pot of canna coco I have, I would've picked fox farm but the shipping costs were too high from the US.

6th Day: It seems to have come up pretty quick, I lightly sprayed the top part of the soil which is still damp, it's had some rest and light came back on not long ago, I woke up and took a photo.
The top leaf looks a little yellow. Worried if it's getting too much light protecting the bottom one which is greener.
Should I bury the stem a bit more or just let it fly. The pellet isn't deep, just lightly covered. wtf2.jpg

Leave it alone. Seedlings are very delicate, no need to be moving the thing around.

Resist the urge to constantly spray it also. Get the soil wet and let it dry, then repeat. Constant watering and spraying is overwatering and can easily kill off a new sprout. Good luck.

I think he put them into coco… so best not to let it dry out as you’re aware of.

Not sure on how much and when to water coco from seedling

Ah, thanks for the help! I watched a video where he keeps the coco soil saturated but he also has a drainage through his pot so I think I'll just keep an eye on it, look up more coco users and dampen it up every now and then cause the outsides are starting to dry up already.
