Seedling Stuck!

Seedling germinated and appeared to be quite strong. Autoflower Jack Hurer. Planted in DIY self amended soil...like I have with all my other plants in the past. My "Day 1" is right around April 25th. Seedling placed in its final home (5 gal cloth pot) and continue to grow for the first few days. The first week of life it appeared to grow slowly...but the past few weeks it has essentially just stayed the same size. The funny thing is it doesn't appear to be suffering from any of the traditional seedlingIMG_20200508_080920.jpg issues such as damping off. I did flush the soil thinking it may be too hot or a pH issue... But that was several days ago and I haven't noticed any growth yet. Does anybody have any experience dealing with this particular situation? should I just continue to monitor it and hope for the best? Is there anything I can do to try and (wake it up)?

what ph are you feeding at? What ph is your runoff? Those leaves are telling me that shes not happy.

Its a tiny plant in a big ass pot its going to take time to grow. Its doing plenty under the soil growing roots. Just give it time. Stop pouring water in other than light waterings and leave her be before you cause more issues.

Light should be 36-40 inch away
2 shots glasses of water a day
How do you know how far away the light should be? We haven't been advised of what lamps are in use ;)

About the two shot glasses of water. The plants have been in the soil for more than a week, and in such a huge pot, the seedling will spend most of its first couple of weeks doing majority root growing. Two shot glasses isn't enough water at this stage. You want to encourage the roots to seek water.

I was just in a similar situation and this set up got it to grow, currently in veg

18/6 light cycle
And some air circulation

I'm pretty sure it's because the soil is too hot. I went ahead and flushed it again carefully...with pH 5.5 springwater. PH runoff came out to around 7.5 - 8... So the soil is still pretty hot.
Going to just keep my hands off and pray for the next 2 or 3 days. I'll let y'all know! Any comments or jokes gladly welcome

Here's a few pictures of what I got going on now. Enjoy any comments welcome!

What sort of soil are you using that you think is too hot?
 
Wow.. slow down guys!

Here is a copy of my soil recipe..

PHOTO_20200419_121401.jpg

After taking a minute to consider what may have gone wrong... I don't think I did a good enough job of flushing the soil before planting. As a result I think the pH was a bit too high. BTW... I usually mix the soil a few days before so it was pretty fresh anyway (no composting).

I was originally concerned about this particular plant... Which has been this exact height since April 28th. Seriously it hasn't grown a bit. I know it's not over or under watered...

But how do I know that?

Because it's not showing any signs that it's under or over water... Not wilted or slumped over. but there is slight discoloration of the leaves and the leaves do appear to be curled under... Which would suggest some sort of toxicity 2 something... My only conclusion is that the soil is too hot?

That's why I chose to flush it?

What did you guys think?

Should't be feeding yet, too young. Wait for the first set of multibladed leaves.

Couldn't load the images, please post them as thumbs for us with slow internet.

Where did you get that recipe ? .... it’s obviously missing a ph buffer. Elements listed make this very nitro heavy mix.

Was soil cooked or just mixed and used ?
Nitrogen is obviously torching that young seedling.
Any reason you didn't start seedling in mild potting mix ?
