That dirt is dry ass hell. Cut a water Bottle and make a dome mist the bottle inside and slip it over the seedling.

Tiny seedlings get most water from the air. They dont have a much roots yet. And i would probably mist that dirt to moisten it up a hair.

Put a humidity dome (a cut in half water bottle) on it and put it under 20-4 lighting. It will b fine. It’s not dead at all. Within 24-36 hours she will b up and perky. Take her dome off for about twenty mins at a time every few hours to give her some fresh air.

A tbsp of water 1/4 inch from her stem would b good too
Good luck!

I wouldn’t say it’s dead yet, if it lives, probably be a runt

Northern lights that popped on 10/2/19 sad shape

Here it is today, it’s tiny, but alive, soil is hot (ffof) and just watered an hour ago

I would give it a week or so and see what happens maybe a dome would help

FFOF isn’t hot. Seedlings do fine in it.

Your baby looks good. Keep it up farmer!

I agree that it’s not hot, been out of the game for a while, cause I shouldn’t jump because everyone else did :stuck_out_tongue: (a lot of people say it’s hot, I never had a problem though)

Keep it at least 24” now. Seedlings don’t need much water or light. U can love a seedling right to death.

Alot of growers I know start in solo cups to start root growth… Once the roots have developed they transplant into bigger pots/bags… The bottom one is dead for sure like @preybird1 said… Top one will need alot of care… Just remember roots don’t like thick muddy soil so don’t overwater they like moist soft soils… Sometimes you just get bad seeds but you’ll be surprised what a little love can do I thought a few were goners for sure but pulled through with some love… The trick @preybird1 said to do with water bottle is a great idea

Ya def not dead. That is how they look when they first pop the seed cap. ALL babies look like that at some point. They just get color very quickly.

Sometimes they will dampen off but the stem looks different when that is happening. You will see the stem in the middle get skinny. If u zoom in on his pic the stem is thick and white and looks healthy. It’s just a baby that hasn’t stood up yet. They usually are lacking either light or humidity or both.
