Seedings

Asked February 15, 2018, 6:31 PM EST

My seedlings’ leaves are curling and I am concerned. They under fluorescent lights about 2” over the Plants. I was wondering if it was a watering issue. I have planted the seeds in Miracle Gro soil. Thanks for your assistance.

This looks like the first set of leaves and can be normal. Keep an eye on the seedlings. They should be okay. Do not overwater and keep the lights 1-2 inches from the seedlings. Wait until the top of your growing medium is nearly dry before watering. You can either apply water to the surface or allow your growing medium to wick up water by setting your containers on a shallow pan. Water to keep the growing media moist, but not wet. http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/plants/seedling-care
