    Wassup y’all, my wedding cake seedling is looking a little droopy and hasn’t continued growth after transplanting it into the 1 gal pot. I transplanted a little earlier because the seedling shot up and was leggy and it wasn’t able to support its leaves and was falling over the solo cup it was in under a t5 light (was too high up after the seed sprouted through). So I transplanted the seedling into a larger pot and burried the stem lower into the medium. I am growing from coco with roots organics nutrients (Buddah grow, Trinity,) under an HLG 3000 light. I know its for flowering but it made more sense to get the light i could use through flower first instead of getting a light I would just veg under. What would be the best way to help her start growing again? Light is 24 inches above, temps between 77-81 and humidity between 50-60%.

        i just had the same issue. had my mars hydro ts1000 dimmer at 75% when i knocked it down to just slightly under 50 they perked up a few hours later and now they are fine. their color even started to look more solid and healthy by the next day. did moving the light back work for you?

    just curious after transplanting do you remember if you think you watered it as if it was in its old container, or the amount of water added would be considered a normal watering for that container size?

    If its not too much light, may be just a bit touch too much water after transplant? Possibly, possibly not…?

      After I transplanted I watered the medium to the amount for the container not the seedling. Thats a good point. Definitely think the combination of too much water and the more intense light didnt do me any favors. Shes looking much better today though! New growth and leaves are perking up.

    The cupping is from heat stress bring you day time temps down to 72-75
