watering once a day with room temp water
using potting soil on one set
and perlite and peat moss on the other

The plants sound like they are stretching for the light. Get your light closer to them without getting too hot. If it burns the back of your hand it's too close.

What kind of lights? CFL (compact fluorescent) or HID (high intensity discharge - Metal Halide or High Pressure Sodium) are the ones you want. If you have anything else it just won't work, plus waste time and money.

Watering every day will drown them or cause damping off (fungus infection of the main stem). If the pot seems light that's when they need water. the perlite/peat one may need more frequent watering. Seedlings don't need feeding until the 5-6th week if soil grown.

Keep a fan blowing on them to keep fresh air filled with CO2, and to strengthen the stems.

The house may be 74, but the closet temp could soar, so you need to keep track of the closet temp too.

Your friend knows nothing about growing...based on the comments you mentioned. I wouldn't listen to him/her. Just come to 420 Mag and get your questions answered.

Peace,
