Hi Ive got a little troubles with some of my plants.

I ve got my pots on parapet in the house and some of them are in extension (garage)by the house on parapet.
The ones in garage are a lot smaller than those in the house. I dont know what is a problem because they have even more sun light. All of the were sown at once(about the 1st of March).


Here are some example pics

In the house:

edit: some pics were taken in dark..

What's the average temperature difference between the two places? If one spot is warmer than the other, they will grow at different rates.

IMO

They look pretty good!
I have no clue where you are, or what the temp is, but they are at a stage where they can be put outdoors during the daytime where they get morning sun, and shade in the afternoon. Probably must still be brought in overnight.

unless you have those fancy, hi-tech grow lights for indoor grows

I hope your cups are set up with holes so they will drain...
Plants at this stage should not get their water from the bottom.
If not, there becomes a possibility of spiral root, which could lead to stunted growth of the plant.

Good luck

I thoguht it could be the temperature difference but it is just few degrees (a chimney is running throught the garage).

I am from Slovakia and here is pretty sunny right now, its about 20-25°C during a day I doubt there will be a morning frost anymore. (no snow this winter...I cant remember a winter like this one).

Maybe you are right Rusty I will put them out during the day to acclimatize them, at least those ones that are in a garage.

The pots dont have holes. I am watering them by big sirynge so I put just so much water to make a soil wet. If you have better idea just tell me I dont know about the root issues you mentioned.

Thank you!

Two cuts with a razor knife... cut out a V on bottom edge of cup. 10mm-13mm. Do it 3 places.
Set cups on tray with low sides.
Pour water into tray.
It will wick up into the potting soil.
Roots will grow down to the water.
EZ to carry trays outside if bunch of them on a board.
25C plenty good for tobacco. Bring them in at night for the first week, or so.

Good luck!

For the sake of clarity, the plants should not be bottom watered at this stage?

Now they are probably big enough to bottom water... but you could mist them a bit.
Here's how I cut the cup bottoms...

Almost any kind of container I can get, cheap, or free!
