Days since germination - 14
Days since planting - 13
Looks like the plants were in too small of cups for too long.
I cut into my cup and this is what I found:
This picture is of one of the smaller plants, just to give everyone an idea of the root systems these things get. It was really interesting to find. I wore gloves as to not damage the roots. Another thing is the Promix BP is REALLY crumbly so wetting it kept it together a bit better.
So, I have intermediate pots that I am going to use for the next little while before I go to the final 3 gallon ones.
I followed the noob guide at Replant Those Long Stretchy Stems ( Its Easy ) and as the poster said, its easy.
I filled a bit of promix on the bottom of the pot, put the small plant in and filled it right up to just under the leaves.
I then soaked the Promix with water and my 10% recommended dosage of Miracle Grow All Purpose fertilizer.
I adjusted my lights slightly since they were a bit too high I think.
Will see how this takes.
