Why is my auto seedling looking odd?

You don't need to run 2 lights for 1 seedling. Use your smaller light, only. Plus, sellers exaggerate wattage on lights. Check to see what the actual wattage is, pulled from the wall, on each light.

I have one other seedling next to it that is not an auto. Is it bad to run too much light? How do I find out the actual wattage? Thanks for the quick responses!

Rookie opinion here. Lots of seedlings start off as ugly ducklings. I think she's fine. IMO 1500 watts of LED power is very excessive for some seedlings, autos or photo.

Thanks guys I’ll try and keep photos going throughout the next few days.
Im also running 24/0
May have to grab myself a timer to get a bit of darkness going.
I’ve just always vegged under 24hrs of light.
Do you guys think I’ll be okay if my humidity is cruising around 40%?

So one of the lights I have is off of Amazon.

KEEGROW 600W LED Grow Light Double On/Off Switch Full Spectrum Grow Lamp, with Daisy Chain Function, Hanging Hook, for Indoor Hydroponic Plants Vegetative and Flowering https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07VFNQ6YN/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glc_fabc_2-5aGbZBWGCFE

the other is a “1000 watt LED” that came with the cheap grow tent I purchased on eBay which I’m sure they are full of shit on. I’m hoping these lights will be able to pull me through on 2 plants. I also purchased a smaller strip grow light from Home Depot that I will use for side growth as the plants get bigger.

Without a complete grow setup list , I am seeing some issues.

1. Be aware that those light panels are not even close to claims of actual power.
2. Seedlings need very little up front ( as cotyledon leaves provide early nutrition)
3. Spring water can run TOO ALKALINE [ 7.3 to 8.3 or higher ] , way out of whack for use.
4. One panel would suffice for early seedling
5. How high above are lights over seedlings ?
6. You can “ dome “ the seedlings to compensate for current low Rh

What would be my best source of water?
The tap water we have here is absolute garbage.
I do not have a reverse osmosis system either.

thanks for the tips on humidity guys I will try some different things.
