It started right after my first set of true leaves came up. They are crusty and fairly hard to the touch. The 2nd and 3rd set of leaves seem to be trying to poke through but they are all bunched up right around the first set cotedylons and im afraid they cant push through and open up. Its been like this for about a week, the seed came from a bank. Extremely stunted growth. The color of the leaves seem alright. Any ideas of what's wrong?

Find out your tap waters pH.  I bet that is your problem.  RO or Distilled water is always a safe bet.  There may be a fish store in your area that sales RO water. 

How many watts of CFL?

If your lights are 2 inches from your plants, then I bet your temps are not at room temp.  Find out what your temps are at the top of your canopy.

What type of soil?

It also sounds like you are over watering.

Post a pic if you can and that will clear some of these possible causes up.

It looks like it's going to be another Gravity Bong type day...
