The thing is... I'm growing them in the same circumstances as I do every season... at least I think I do... but they just don't want to take off. Only those two papa dreadies did well so far and that confuses me.I’ve had a very similar issue with my seedlings. The culprit wound up being too much light, in my case. Incidentally, my Scotch Bonnets (albeit TFM) also thrived under the light others yellowed and stalled under. Something to consider.
I should have caught it sooner, but didn’t think my lights were powerful enough. Easy to underestimate LEDs, I guess!
Those all look so heathy… these are the guys who are stalled? That really is odd. Presumably, they don’t reckon conditions are quite right to take off… but they sure look like they could at any moment!
I reckon they’ll make up for this later with a burst of vigorous growth.
Could well be the case, the other one didn't make it because of this... But this one does seem to do well despite the shape of the cotys...It takes awhile for the seedling roots to fill up those pots.
Once the roots touch the sides and bottom of the can,
the growth will take off. They may be slow, but they look
good. Judging by the look of the cotyledons, the JA Hab
looks like it had a difficult time shedding the seed husk.
