Wow, 20gram. I think the gel would be hard as a rock with that much.

Agar produces a matrix which allows the liquid part of the media to flow through. A higher amount of gel the smaller the pathways in the gel. With 20 grams of agar very little lquid media, what little is left, will come in contact with the plants limiting the amount of nutrients and plant growth regulators the plants have access to.

It may not kill them right from the start but will certainly affect their growth.
