Welcome Dfirstever to:420:
Those girls are too young for nutrients, your burning them up . And not knowing the soil could hurt you . I don’t do soil but I’ll put out an APB on it for you ! @InTheShed @Emilya @stoneotter

Seed starter soil should be nute free, though some do include nutes in the soil so check the bag and take a look. Definitely no fertilizer at this early stage so flushing those little cups can't hurt. Let them grow a while and see how they look.

Are you going to sink those peat pots in a bigger pot as they grow?

Just hang on I know it’s 30 days before you add nutrients or till the leaves look hungry! The flushing part let’s get advice from the ones that grow in soil . And hey this idiot is in hydro ha ha

Here's a quick link to Emilya's thing ;) on the best way to water a potted plant:

There are all sorts of ways to fertilize a plant, from synthetic nutes to organic ones to ones you mix into the soil like Osmocote+ and never do anything but water after that. Not sure that's ideal for an auto but works well for photoperiod plants.

You'll get loads of advice so start researching all over this site and google and find one that might best fit your style. Look at other growers' journals and see what they do and ask question there. We're a pretty helpful bunch as you can see!

Can't wait 30 days for an auto or they're liable to be in flower already! I'd start mild nutes when it's about 4 nodes tall, or when the cotyledon leaves start to yellow, whichever comes first.
