Second, heat lamps wont work. Try florescent lights.
Third, by your own statement they aren't wicking up enough water because you said the rockwool cubes are dry (quite possibly because the heat lamps are drying it out faster than it can wick it up).
Fourth, not only do you need to watch your water temperatures, but your air temps as well. Those plants have different temperature preferences.
Fifth, seedlings need high humidity. A clear dome will hold the humidity in, as well as still let the light in.
hi thanks for the advice the heat lamp wich was a uvb bulb no heat has since been changed out with a good qaulity grow light. Im really unsure whats going on still but i think i should sprout them by puting them in a dome until the plant have just a little length of root to put in the water and some roots to spare leaving it aerated?
