      The see through leaves could easily be an acclimation issue. If these were tissue culture cups, it's somewhat expected to melt a bit. Give it some time. Already showing great growth!

        Yes, Ada ECA, Brighty K and Brighty Iron. Along with that is 1-2 squirts of UNS all in one. Im thinking of switching over from UNS to Tropica due to UNS ferts having so much nitrate in it.
