A toothpick will help it stand straight but it looks like your lights are too far hence the stretching. What are you using as a light source? If using cfls they should be 2 inches or so away. Also the bulbs should be horizontal. I always see noobs having them vertical.

Would it be fine to have them so long? When I transplant down the rd should I put me deep?

And I am using 4 cfl I am not sure their strength, maybe too weak?

No not really. When there vertical  you're losing light from the sides of the bulb. And if you are in doubt you might want to think about buying some high wattage cfls. Atleast then you know.

I personally would just stack the soil a little higher and wait untill the pot feels light/dry before full watering again. if by chance there's discoloration at the base of the stem it could be the soils too moist

IDK what better options there are for CFL but if you're looking to get more, for like 40$ on amazon I got the parts to make a decent 4x 40watt CFL lamp thing using a 4 socket adapter, one of these high wattage clamp reflectors, and 4 CFL. I don't use the clamp, I just hung it with adjustable ropes

Your plants look fine.  Relax don't worry and have a homebrew.  Oops wrong forum.

Just mound the soil around the stem(s) and very gently press down around it.  Your plants will thank you in the morning.

They look dead... Idk the soil smells weird like pickles or coleslaw... The stem is like shriveled up and the leaves look yellow from the inside and pretty much dead =(

Idk what I did, I think the soil is too dense? I'll add more perlite for the next time and make sure they don't reach for light........
Idk if there is any saving them I really don't know how without killin them quicker, the stems got so weak so fast they would not stay up

If you are going to use CFL's, keep the light 1-2 inches above the plant. These plants definitely stretched as mentioned above.  Also, unless you just watered them the soil should not be that damp.  The soil should have better drainage then what I am seeing there.  I seed and grow in HP Pro Mix and you can get it at one of the big box hardware stores.

Dammnn!!...
The other guy is looking the same....



Yea I watered them... But I am using soil straight from the hydroponics store so I figured the water it holds should be okay..

Is there anything I can do for this last guy to try to dry up the soil?

Sounds like you may have some shitty water.  Sulfury water?  Hydrogen sulfide?  They look overwatered but maybe your water is just bad and nasty.  What's the source of it, is it hard, is it soft, is it alkaline, neutral, or acidic?

All of the above.
I do have bad water but I was waiting for someone to say so because I wanted to be sure that was indeed an option not just an idea...

I have orange irony? water and sometimes smells like surfer...
We have a filter but I guess it didn't do its job..

Does anyone buy water? Or haul it?
There's a natural water spring nearby, could that be good for plants? I see lots of people drink from it, can I just fill a barrel or something?

Test the ph and barrel it up when planting a germinated seed you need to be careful about the moisture content of the soil. They really don't need too much water at that size. Also I've heard sterilization/pasturization of the soil will prevent lots of stuff
