    I'm seeing my 2 week old plants take a turn for the worse.
    A few of the plants are dropping very badly. I've been making sure to not overwater by waiting until the solo cups get to be around a certain weight before watering.

    It could be a nute problem/deficiency/ph lockout, I'm not sure.

    I see these tiny globules on the undersides of leaves. I've stared at various leaves now for over an hour using a 60x loupe and have yet to see anything that resembles a mite. And haven't seen any movement whatsoever. I had thrips before, so I at least can spot those little suckers.. but in this case nothing with two spots, nothing moving around.

    I see a plant screaming for nutrients.

    Swollen leaves and yellowing is a sign of under feeding imo.

    Time to give some nutrients or if you’re in soil time to up pot and refresh the soil.

    Check your medium for lockout mate.
    Check for rot too.
    I reckon its a ph issue though
    Good luck
    Let us all know

    I agree it isn't mites, I think it isn't getting proper nutrient due to being root bound but..... I would transplant into bigger pots regardless.
