Photo upload help is found on 420 main page. I can't see your profile pic From mobile.
Sounds like your light was too far away.
Make sure the cups have drain holes and let them dry. Weight is a good way to know when they need watered.

Hey man

Welcome to the growing world! Exciting times ahead for you!

When you have seedlings only water when the soil is dry! Becareful of overwatering as this is the easiest way for a new grower to kill their plants. But besides that the best advice I can give you is READ!! Don't just take one persons advice, different strokes for different folks.

There is so much great info on this site and I'm sure it will be able to help with all you questions!

With the pictures upload, if you are doing it from your phone. When you type you just need to click on the arrow pointing up . kinda looks like that! It will bring up a option to upload pictures!

Keep it real
