I'm sticking with my theory that my seedlings got too much light. When I moved some of my seedlings further away from the lights, they turned a little less red, but increased in growth. This seems to be the only explanation I can find as to why my seedlings won't grow directly under my lights.

I disagree. I believe you dont feed yours. When I fed all of my seedlings they all took off in growth.

The plants didn’t grow at all under the lights. Fertilizing had no affect when my seedlings were directly under the lights.

Plants definitely need nutrition. Even not so lighting plays a role, although it is important :roll:
