Wisteria Seedlings in Al's Gritty Mix Stalled

I have 2 young Wisteria seedlings planted in Al's 1-1-1 gritty mix - 1 W. Sinensis and 1 W. Sinensis Alba. They are outside in clay pots. They each have 3 - 4 sets of leaves but have stalled the past weeks. I just added a clay saucer under the pots to help moisture retention after reading that they do not like to be dry. My question is should I report in the 1-1-1 gritty mix with 15% peat added to increase moisture retention? I use Foliage Pro at 50 ppm for daily watering as I do with my other bonsai, letting at least 10% additional water through to prevent salt buildup. I also lower the ph of tap water with vinegar.

Any suggestions to get these seedlings jump started again?

FYI - I have a similar post in the seedlings section of the forum. I was not sure where it would be best.

Thanks for any help.

Well, I'm not sure....
But you might try fertilizing a half-strength dose twice a week or a full-strength dose once a week.

I wouldn't add peat for increased moisture retention, just more turface and or bark.
