I am so bad at seedlings They pop up happily, grow well for a week, and then just seem to start crawling... Aside from my A13 over the summer, I can usually get them into "big enough to repot" state, but that usually takes several weeks... it'd be nice if I could start plants of healthy and keep them going that way.

Not terrible, but that lightening between the veins isn't healthy. This one hasn't been fed yet, so maybe it's time to give it a little something?

... this one is doing that trick where the leaves are starting to die back. I did give this one a very mild feeding a week ago, which (maybe coincidentally?) seems to have coincided with the oldest leaves beginning to wither and die.
My seedling mix is Happy Frog + 1/3 perlite, which sounds entirely reasonable -- mild soil, and drainage seems great. I've been letting the soil surface turn bone dry between waterings, and have a dedicated seedling pot with wet soil to compare the pot weight with the seedlings in an effort to avoid over-watering.
Anyway. Just venting. I guess I have my FDM breeder packs to help me experiment and figure out where I'm going wrong, so maybe it's time to start a bunch of seeds and science the heck out of them.
