The seedling started to grow sideways so I turned the pot around so it can try and stand up straight. I have the light to the side atm but imma fix that later on tomorrow, is this the right move?

Normally topping doesn't take place until you've got 3-5 nodes growing strong. Got to be patient when gardening or you may shock your plant causing it to herm or some shit. You haven't been using nutes have you? That could be a cause of the yellowing. I have a good link about how to use nutrients in my signature you could definitely correct any thing you may be doing wrong.
Good Luck Mane
:thanks:

Yeah I undertand but I just said fuck it, and yeah I didn't use nutes yet I'm using ffof so it should be good for a couple weeks right? She's 2 weeks and 3 days old and here's a pic of her growing back. And thanks a lot man stay tuned

You can see the burn too idk what it is I think it's the soil being to much for it cause it's ffof. Also the toping is growing since 3 days from topping.

FFOF seems to be sort of hit or miss... yes, it's FF's "hottest" soil mix, and some people have experienced that it's a bit too much for seedlings and early veg. I didn't have any problems with it with my NL, but maybe I just got lucky? dunno... In case you're not yet, what I might recommend is when you water it with plain water (PH adjusted), water A LOT, so you get at least 25% runoff out the drain holes in the pot. This is not to be confused with "overwatering". you wait til the top 2-3" of soil is completely dry... then saturate the hell out of it to get runoff, then let it go completely dry. For most people, this will mean watering every 3-4 days (maybe even 5 depending on your specific soil & room conditions)

I might be talking out my ass, but it seems to me doing this helps flush excess crap out of the soil and ensures that when you water, you're not just dissolving crystallized minerals & nutrients that were leached from the soil on the last watering. Sort of giving a min-flush each time you water - at least until it's big and strong enough to hold its own in the soil, and the soil starts getting broken down to where you're adding your own nutes.

I'm just curious - Whose Northern Lights is it? I'm growing NL from Nirvana - also in FFOF under CFLs. I'm a few weeks ahead of you - I just flipped to 12/12 today. It's also my first grow, but so far it's been a great plant to learn and experiment with. I already feel comfortable topping, FIMming and I used extensive amount of LST to accommodate my relatively short cabinet.

Definitely stick around here at 420. great folks and TONS of combined knowledge to soak up.

Good luck, and since I missed you at the first post, :welcome: to :420:

Yeah but the weird thing is the seedlings were doing good in the soil until week 2, The water I use idk what it is but it's from the sink but I fill up gallon jugs and leave them out for 2-3 days then put them next to my box when I need to water but I fill up a small bottle for feeding her, and I'll definitely follow the ways to water her now. Also i have no nutes for her yet but hopefully soon I could pick up a set any suggestions ?
My seed is from TSSC And its from 00 Seeds Northern lights
I'll also check out your grow see how that baby turns out
