I had no problem get my seeds up. They are under lights. My plant are about a week old and the first two leafs are curling downward like they are getting to much light or something should I water it more, take the light off or is this normal? Thanks John

Sounds like the Cots. They are not actually leaves but a food source. You will get a 1st leaf here soon, Keep giving it the light. If its cloudy out put it outside..the sun makes them grow better than lights any day and hardens them off..Just don't do it on a clear day.. they will burn

It is the cots, I did not know they were a food source. So I guess is ok for them to be curling down. I took your advice had have them outside for alittle today. everyday has been cloudy in pa thank again
