    Hi there, and welcome! What exactly is the medium it's growing in? Am I seeing large bark chips? Nebula has mentioned that somehow cannabis does not do well in that. I wonder if that's why they're so small. Stay tuned...you will probably be getting some more expert advice soon. Good luck!

      Yes there are some bigger Chunks of bark will it be okay to remove them now or is it to late? Also what light schedule should they be on?

    Id say they need a transplant to a bigger pot and maybe some magnesium. It also looks like overwatering or maybe too little light

        Exactly root bound. Small pot. Needs water. What lighting?

          It does look like a lot of bark chips in your soil. Get a mix that has nice dark loose soil mixed with perlite. Transfer to bigger pots and make sure they have drainage hole. Check the pH of your water. should be between 6 and 6.5 Water thoroughly until you see at least a little run off. Then allow to dry before watering again. At least that is a start.

          Do you have access to a garden supply store? If so, just get a nice organic soil with a good amount of perlite mixed in. Fox Farm is a highly recommended brand, though I don't have that where I live. You can order it online. I used a soil called Baccto. Was wonderful. They say that Miracle Grow soil is not good because of the time released nutrients.

            LOL - well then I guess the soil isn't the problem.

            I saw Nebula saw once that you should fish out chips in the soil if you see them. 🌲 She said that they're made from wood that didn't get fully composted yet!!!! In fact, I read that "seedling soil" is actually just regular composted soil, but they sift it so only the super fine composted particles make it through! It seems like the really fine composted stuff is "easy to eat" for plants, then as they get older they are stronger and can deal with the wood chips!!!! ✨

            also miracle grow soil is to compacted, it does not allow a great amount of air to pass thru the plants soil, to allow oxygen in the roots.

          Welcome to the jungle!!! the spot are from ph being to high for the soil you have it needs to be at 6.0 to 6.2 because the soil is not ideal compared to the super soils.Trans plant into bigger pots and get better soil. If your plants are small like they are the amount of water I use at that size is 1 cup per day per plant or 9 oz. per day also if your not getting any variation on your soil ph your meter might not be working properly.

              18/6 is great for them they need there rest too! I have to yell u I'm kind of shocked the last couple runs of bag seeds they where in a solo cup and shot up over 2 ft I was always bending, super cropping, trimming. I do have to say they look good tho if u move your light further away they will stretch more. But like green75 said bend or tie over after u get transplanted to get that side growth groving!! No worries man you will get them straightened out they will be growing like crazy soon!!

                  try to do alot of LST after a good water, allowing the stems to bend and move easy.

                Sounds like everything should be ideal. Fox farm is great soil, environment is good, light should be fine.

                Theyre so small for 5 weeks. If the transplant doesn't work I would consider genetics as a possible issue. What are they?

                could part of my problem be that I have them under 24 hours of light constantly?

                  Lots of people run 24/0 with good results.

                  I think most feel the plants need some time off from constantly photosynthesizing. At least 4 hours of dark is bare minimum for me.

                    a plant sleeps and do need rest, id say from clone to 2 weeks veg 24 hours then bring down slowly so drop 2 hours a week til optimal time wanted. 18/6 is optimal in veg ant 12/12 flower.
