Sometimes love & comfort is all you can give.
Thank you so much @ducks4you ! I'll read all these articles and see what might be going wrong. I need to thin out the poorer plants in my last spinach starts, but I'm afraid to do it because they're finally doing so well. I'll read all this carefully so I know what I did wrong the first batch.Also, This article:
"I realized I needed to warm the soil in order for the seeds to germinate."
"Heat Mat: Spinach seeds will germinate at a temperature between 40˚F to 75˚F, but will sprout quicker in warm soil. Use a heat mat until they sprout."

Yup, looks about like my last load! I'm getting a bunch of new grow pots coming in the mail, so I'll likely check out some new brands. I'll let you know if I find any that are amazing. For the baby babies, I use cocoa noir and it actually is fluffy and amazing for starting things, but it has no nutrients. I don't mind a few small chips of wood but I sure don't like those big sticks like in your photo.Had you in my thoughts when I was sifting a small bag of potting soil for seed blocking recently. Almost 1/3 of it was unusable woody bits. As potting soil this would be okay I guess, but for starting seeds in mini blocks it won't do. Do you think there is a perfect brand of super fine potting soil out there somewhere, and we're just not finding it??
