Hey buddy don’t stress it to much plants bounce back more then you’d think

No master so take this advice for what it’s worth

I personally don’t think they look sad because of a nutrient issue, if it was a nutrient problem it prob be yellow for lack of nutes or burning at the tips for to much nutes

Anyway I think you have a watering issue on your hand ime drooping is usually water related

Ime if the leaves are very  wilted and weak with no bend or firmness they need water

If they are dropped with some firmness ime they are overwatered and need oxygen

looks like root shock to me.

Transplanting always stresses the roots add rich soil into the mix and roots can't uptake water.

The quick and easy solution is to mist your plants with water early in the light cycle so the water has time to dry before darkness allows mold to grow.

If the wilting stops after misting its root shock and your plants should be fine, you might need to mist a couple of more times early in the light cycle.:goodluck:

I have stopped watering them for the past 2 days. One of my seedling bounced back to being peppy. One of them is still droopy though. I guess I must water less then I was before. Huge thanks for the help guys :smile:
