    Default seedlings turning yellow

    any ideas why these seedlings are turning yellow?
    they started about doing this about a week ago, all seeds are from a mixed pack from peak...could it just be the strain? not all are yellowing as you can see
    i thought maybe iron,so i gave 1/2 of them only 1ml/liter of liquid karma about 3 days ago, and it burnt them..i ph my water to 6.4 so i don't believe its a p.h issue..
    i transplanted 3 to 1 gallon today hoping maybe they want more fresh dirt, i honestly am stumpped..

    My first guess would have been high pH but you say the water is fine, was your meter calibrated lately?

    The way I grow typically a transplant solves all problems, hopefully it works here too.

    I see nute burn for sure,the tranplant should work things out,did you check those roots Jay when you transplanted,my guess is they are soft and weak,brown even,give them straight ph'd and maybe some seaweed,and they should come around,kep us informed,I see you work out of your wheelchair,lol,I tend to drop and plop to the floor,hahahaha,always so proud to see others fighting there way to great harvests,peace and much respect my friend

    they all been transplanted ,i haven't seen em yet this morning but at 5am ,they where pointing straight for the lights
    i was actually amazed how fast they picked up,,i ended up using thrive alive on em..i haven't gardened in 14months so i need to re tune my technique ..

    420 : yes ,you were correct roots were very skinny and brown, during transplant they couldn't even hold the rootball together ,it was a rough transplant ..lol..its sorta tricky,i only have one hand that works kinda sorta..i do work from my chair ,i only have enough strength to transfer from bed to chair..if i was to do floor thing,i would be stuck there ,and i quit doing that same time i quit drinking ..lmao

    i have feeling from my breast line up only ,im a quadriplegic due to car accident, so my body is pretty much dead weight ,mind you i do fairly well on my own...
    im going to agree again .hehe
    i was thinking more holes needed in sides of cups too , ..im going today to buy seaweed and perilite trying to get more air to roots..trying to rescue 3 of 5 skylock i started few days back,theres fuzzy white mold on top of soil ,i have never had mold before moving here,i think i may look for some no damp while im out.. i will eventually have my plants looking like yours.. your seedlings are amazing

    My goodness. One of the reasons why I wanted a DG was because I don't have a lot of energy or strength, compared to what I used to have. But I do have full mobility and have a lovely outdoor garden. However, it has to look after itself mostly. You guys are an inspiration and I'm very seriously considering setting up a room.

    Can you guys give me some "must have's" for a set up? I'm putting seeds in water today. I'll put them into some peat/mix when they crack and into a small dome. I'm only putting in 5 regular and 2 feminized, so hopefully I'll actually get some meds at the end of the day. Going to set up over the next few weeks. The little guys will be fine on top of my clothes dryer for a few weeks. lol. as long as I hang up a light.

    hmm, do you have any equipment yet?

    i started with a 400w hps in a 20"x33" closet. floro nova nutes and bail of promix and then slowly bought more stuff as i needed it,i didn't need to ph water so i didn't even have any meters
    when i finally received my pupl i put a 4x4 tent in living room,i find the biggest challenge for me is setting up the room

    edit: i forgot most important thing ,a min/max thermometer for your temperature /humidity

    No equipment. some peat in the garage. I'm going to get some mix today if any store close has it, aka Home Depot. There is regular potting soil in garage, but will sterilize in oven if I decide to use any of it. If not, then the hydro store has some. Need to see if they are open today or tomorrow. Room is not a problem, but will put up a tent. Don't want to frame in a separate room/closet for now. Probably 3x4 tent for flowering to help with odor control, as it needs to be vented with a carbon filter.

    You're off to a good start, Tweety.

    A 600w digi and 4x4 tent will have you harvesting in as little as 3 months from now

    ..hell, even less with autos.

    Thanks guys. I picked up Sunshine mix 4. I'll start a thread about this experiment. Please comment away as I have no clue. Only ever started annual flowers inside with lights. They did very well. lol. I'll probably put in a couple of tomatoes. I grow awesome ones outside. Indoors...sigh, we'll see. Worst that will happen is I will be in the same situation, with no meds. Not the end of the world.
