Question about Tea Seedling. Need Help!

Hey everyone, I started a tea seedling a few months ago. It sprouted from the soil about a month and a half ago, and it was growing fairly quickly.However, recently it seems to have stopped growing, for the most part, and the leaves are looking a bit wilted or weak. Can anyone tell me, from looking at the photo, what might be wrong? I'm not sure if its getting too much or too little sun. With regards to water, I try to keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. I also applied VF-11 recently, which is like seaweed extract, so im not sure if I fed the plant too much or too little.

Any opinions on what you think might be wrong are appreciated, and if you think nothing is wrong, even better!

The Tea Seedling image indicates to me that everything is going well. I have grown many of these, and yours looks great.

RE: Question about Tea Seedling. Need Help!

I have noticed a tendency to "stop growing" around this time of the year too. Did not think anything of it until I read your post though. Check that everything is as it used to be in the sunlight, temperature, humidity, root and spider mites departments and then continue as you have been doing. Just wondering... why did you feel you needed VF-11? Did you apply it before or after you noticed that it had "stopped growing"?
