My bipp, valerie, sugarloaf lettuce leaves are curling up. Can someone tell me what could be causing this? To close to lamps, over watering, over fertilizing? Also on the sugarloaf the edges are turning red.

Hi there.

In any case when a seedling does this it can mean a whole range of things:

Little water or too much water
Little light or too much light
Too little or too much nutrients
Too little or too much moisture
