Hey guys.. so i have been growing spearmint from seed for the last few months.. I started them in those seed pods with the little plastic green house thingy... water in the container that absorbs through the pods, and a heat mat under the "green house" to keep them warm due to the AC thats on... i have a grow light on them set for about 12 hours...

i transplanted them to a larger pot about a month ago, put a Plastic bottle over them so i could reduce the humidity they were used to slowly, so they didnt go into shock. but the leaves are sooo small.. i would guess the size of a blunt pencil tip and the stem the size of pencil lead... Tiny!

i cant even prune them cause i accidentally just cut the whole plant.

they get a liquid fertilizer once a week...

They are also growing quite Vine like. I think one of them was about 2 inches long. but this tiny scrawny thing...

what am i doing wrong?

Some "grow lights" don't have enough lumens to satisfy a growing plant. Go brighter, not longer.....

Mint is basically impossible to kill. If it's not doing well, you can assume there is something that needs changing.
