Should I start over or continue?

Hey guys, I was recently brought to this community by a fellow grower who has a lot of experience and has taught me some things in the short time I spoke with them and I plan to learn from them but they specialize in photos which is what brings me to ask here to get further opinions.

So, I have two autos growing in 5 gal smart pots outside in my balcony which has plenty of light but there are spots of shade I can move my plant to when/if I have to and if it is raining hard, it doesn't affect my plants due to the top of my balcony having a roof.

That being said, my plants have been stressed due to my dog (Darn German Shepherds! lol)

2 maybe 3 days after my seed popped out of my coco medium, he dug out the entire seedling with some coco medium and tossed it on the floor on top of the medium. Luckily he did this when I was nearby so I was able to put it back in with fresh coco medium (From Canna) and adjust the perlite ratio to make up for what was lost. He did something similar to my other plant but he didn't take it out, he just slightly shifted the medium and my plant went from being in the middle of the smart pot, to being near the edge. I quickly adjusted it as well.

Some background information: Germination began May 28. on May 31 they went into CoCo Medium, June 2nd they popped out of soil and a couple days later my dog disturbed them, they have not been disturbed since thankfully.

That being said, today marks 8 days from when they broke soil and I feel they are just extremely small for their age and I am at a point where I am not sure if I am wasting my time with these plants or if I should buy different seeds.

As for watering, I am using Seed to Stoned feeding schedule which is the Lucas Formula. I don't know if I am overwatering or not but I am just keeping my coco medium wet/moist for the most part and the most runoff I get when I feed is 10-20% no more.

Currently I am growing AKxCritical Mass and Cheese which I ordered from True North Seed Bank, genetics are from Canuk.

My next plants will be 3 Pineapple Express autos from Barneys Farm since I read great reviews for it so once these plants are finished, the next set of seeds will be those.

I will attach some photos of both plants that I took earlier today. The one that was uprooted and thrown to the floor is actually growing the best of the two, double the size of leaves actually.

Forgot to ask, am I okay growing these still or are they way too small for their age and I am better off starting over and trying out new genetics on top of that which interest me.

if its been a few days since you repotted the seedling the plants should recover from the shock of being uprooted and grow out just fine
at this point i would not be feeding the babies anything but plain water for now

They look fine to me. I wouldn't worry about their size. Stick with them and see what happens. Good Luck!

Yes it has been more than a few days since repotting them and they have grown since, they are just growing super slow but growing nontheless.

Okay so no nutes at all? the last feeding I gave them nutes according to week 1 of feeding from Lucas Formula which was Calmag, micro, gro and bloom.

I will continue to just feed PH bal water then, how long until you recommend starting to add nutes then?

if they have grown since the accident they should be just fine; the roots are reestablishing themselves and doing their thing which is great
yeah, for now i would just keep feed them plain water
what else is in your mix?you mentions coco, but it looks like there is perlite in there as well
it should be good till they at least start showing their first true leafs

Oh! I was under the impression they both have formed true leaves already since each seedling has 6 leaves on it each :O

Yep, they have grown, the leaves have double in sized since the accident pretty much.

Yes, I am using Canna CoCo and I put in 40% perlite so its a 60/40 mix.

I forgot to ask! How much water should I be giving each seedling at this stage?

when you push on the medium it should be a little wet,kind of like soft and damp, but dont over water
i dont really count the cotyledon leaf but we are looking for the first real like leafs, like three and five fingered leafs grown out a bit

Oh okay! sounds like anywhere from 200-500ml should get the job done per plant then.

ahhh okay I get what you are saying now, I fed nutes yesterday, is it fine to go back to just water until it grows a bit more? I just dont wanna damage it or stress it more than it has been.

yeah, like .5l a day at most; if you can maybe add half early and then the rest later in the day
just put the water at the base of the plants for now but as she grows start soaking the rst of the container
i would hold off on the nutes for now until she is ready to handle them
