They need bigger pots. Also are you watering daily? If so that's probably an additional cause.

They were just upsized to a 4" from the seed starter trays. Thank I'll try a bigger container and then I can water less. Thanks.

At this point, you would probably be better off putting them in their summer homes (Garden or large container) Putting them in another intermediate size container will just risk them to another round of transplant shock. They are big enough for regular containers now.

10 days between watering is pretty broad advice, it depends a lot on your soil. Wait till it dries out, then water. Also you can wait till the leaves start to wither, I did that to my habs and they turned out great.
