    Sorry for the delay in responding. Growth can be slow at first under 12/12, so don't despair just yet. Temps are a little high (mid 70's is best). You could try a half strength foliar spray of sea tea and fish, just to help it along. What lights are you using?

    Sea tea may be at Walmart, or check your local garden centre, or online. The sea tea will ease stress and promote good root growth, and act as a general tonic.

    any purpling on the stems? you could have heat stress. I'm in a similar condition and am constantly fighting the heat during the summer.

    Seedlings like to be left alone for at least a few weeks. I usually give a 1/2 str 4-4-4 at 2 weeks, depending on the plants color and growth. If you over-do it, and mess up the pH, they will form thin leaves and yellow in the new growth. Flush the plant with 6.2-6.8 pH at this point (I mix it with 15-30-15 diluted to get my pH where it needs to be), in three days you should see the leaves fatten and green. pH is very important to these little flowering 12/12's.

    Opps, yep, I use maxicrop liquid kelp. I always use it every 5 days at 1/4 strength foliar anyway, they just like it :-)

    5.8 to 6.5 is the preferred range.
