I have not fertilized them yet. I believe that the only nutrients that have been available to the seedlings would come from the peat moss portion of the Jiffy Seed Starting Mix.
Hey, Rick.Thanks for asking. I should have posted this pic from the start

Hello to you all.
I have had several successful crops with Nirvana's AK48, with rave reviews from my friends. But with my last two orders, I have been having trouble keeping my seedlings alive and thriving. This has not happened before so I can’t figure this out.
I just tried to grow 10 plants in my 4’ x 2’ x 7’ h grow tent using the same lights (2 Vivosun VS1000 LED), on 18/ off 6, 18" above 10 x 3” peat cups. the medium is Jiffy’s Seed Starting Mix (peat moss, coconut coir, and vermiculite).
My equipment and hands are always washed clean.
Most recently I tried to grow 5 AK48 and 5 Aurora Indica. All 10 sprouted. I planted them but only 2 AK48 and 3 AI came up, and all of them are weak. The water ph is ~ 7.
The tent is located in my laundry room as it has always been. I now have added a hygrometer which records the humidity at 48%. Could that be the sole cause of my problem? Again, this tent has always been in my laundry room and growing was successful in the past.
Please help! What could be wrong?
Thank you for any suggestions that you can offer.

Thanks, Hulk. I've taken your suggestion to raise the lights and cover them with ziplock bags. I plan to start over with the seeds that I still have (5 x AK48 and 5 x Aurora Indica).
I'll post the results. Thanks again!
