It's a delicate operation but you can carefully take it off if you have steady hands and good eyesight.  Just make sure not to lift it at all or you will tear all the fine root hairs off and stunt or maybe kill the sprout.  I hold it gently with one hand then use a dental pick to pry the clamshell apart.  Spritzing it with water softens the join and that may be enough for it to shed the shell on it's own and at least will make it easier to pry it apart.

I just sprouted 50 beans and had to help 15 or more get open.

Good luck!

:peace:

Your soil is really wet and I'm wondering how warm and humid you are keeping them.  Too much heat and humidity can cause damping off and they look like that.  I use the same pots and promix to root mine in.

It does look like a goner tho. :(

:peace:

Them babies color don't look good at all. What kind of dirt are you using? Does it have any nutrients in it?

When you repot those little seedlings bury the stems an inch as they have stretched out too much and won't want to stand up on their own.  Going to need more to fill up that nice new tent. :)

It shouldn't.  They usually will sprout roots around the buried stem.  When mine first come up I flick them around with my finger tip to toughen up the stem.  Having an oscillating fan blowing them around works too but tends to dry the soil out really fast.  A fan blowing steady right at them is not a good idea.

Bet you're eager to see that tent full of greenery eh. ;)

Yea I have the Oscillating fan on then when the light is on it shuts off at night. Lights are 18/6 about 18" above planes avg temp 75 F. I've had my new light on for light a day already and they still arent ready to harvest, WTF i want my money back -_-

HI DTMG. Yeah it sounds like your light is bad. You should have some colas frosting up by now. :D

But seriously, nice setup. Your in good hands with the LabRat watching on. I would consider a CFL bulb or two for starting small seedlings. You can keep them close enough to prevent stretching. Then put them under the big light after a week or so.

They may be stretchy but they look healthy. You got this!

When taking cuttings you really want a node to be at the base of the cut stem so you should try to cut a little further down.  Roots seem to sprout better at the point the little side branch would grow.
