Seedlings are dying

Both of my ~1week old seedlings are dying. This is my first growing attempt so I wasn't expecting for them to make it very long. Each plant is under (1) 23w 6500k CFL lamp. From what I've researched it looks like a watering issue. I would like to know what exactly went wrong for future grows. Have a look for yourself.

Appreciate it :peace:

Re: Seedlings are dying..

yes it should be nice and high , what you can do is get a glass big enough to go over the seedling and mist the in side of the glass with a water sprayer , lift the glass to let some air in or wedge something under it to hold it up just a little so its not air tight

Try that for a while , then you can get empty clear plastic bottles ( drink bottles ect ) cut them in half and use them , just mist the little dome you made for a bit , has your soil got nutes , they are too young to feed

plus get a ph pen ,

looks like it could be over watering? I never put mine under anything when seeding, apart from a 25w cfl, and water once a week with earth juice leaf :Namaste:

Seedlings do not need high humidity, in winter 30% or less humidity my seedlings germinate just fine(clones need higher humidity levels). You should only be watering when the soil is mostly dry, not daily or anything like that, the roots need oxygen as well as water.
