Oh thank you for the answer and link, both were helpful. I am thinking they may be lacking water and so gave them a good dose tonight with the intention to harvest tomorrow. I normally don’t like to keep them too moist in an effort to avoid damping off and mold. We will see tomorrow. Thanks again!

Micro-greens may not look like the garden variety. For one thing, they are being grown so closely together that they interfere/compete for water and nutrients. Secondly, they cast shade making plants to unusual things to reach the sun. To me, your plants look fine for that environment. In fact, they look ready for harvest. The following article discusses growing micro-greens: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/lettuce/growing-microgreens.htm
