Q.Stagnant Tea Garden

Zone Middleburg, VA; 6b/7a | BriannaVet18 added on April 30, 2023 | Answered

I started tea garden flowers (yarrow, chamomile, valerian, calendula) indoors a few weeks ago. They sprouted nicely but have not progressed past the 2 initial leaves in about 2 weeks now. I have grow lights in them and water regularly. Any advice on how to get them past this stagnation would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!!

You don't mention what kind of soil that you have started these in, but if you have started them in your standard seedling soil then they are likely out of nutrients. Seedling soil is made for starting seeds, but will not have the nutrients to carry them any further. Once you are able, I would apply liquid nutrients, or move them to a nutrient rich soil.
