One Of The Plants Are Growing How I Thought It Would It A Pretty Decent Size. The 7 Others are pretty slow growing and I Dont understand Why. I've Had problem with yellow leaves. I was watering too much at first I guess (every other day). I stoped and let it go for a week and just watered again 3 days ago. They seemed to get better. I had a burnt looking leave so Ive been playing with the lights up and down. I got PH paper and tested the water. Its hard to tell with the paper but it looks like 7. Just regular tap water. Im getting a digital tester soon. Here are a few pics. Any ideas would be great. Need any more pics just let me know.

morning 'phoenix...."Peat" is pretty acidic. Your soil ph may be off. Some perlite for airiation and drainage would also have been beneficial.
1 tblsp of dolomite lime per gallon of medium, mixed in well, before you plant, will keep you ph in an acceptable range.

Did you go full strength with the nutes? It might have been a bit much, they look a little small still.

Would it be bad to toss up the soil with some of that now?
You don't want to tear up roots while doing it... but if you can mix some in that would be great....
