That's normal for the colyteons (sp?) to yellow and die.

They are the baby leaves that the seedling starts off with. They hold the energy to start the tap root and get the show started. They die off and are nothing to worry about unless you have no leaves

The "cotyledons" are what's left of the seed after it splits open and the tap root grows downward. The seed, with it's split, open, shell (like a little "hat") gets pushed upwards, above ground. The shell falls off revealing the cotyledons or "seed leaves", they are like the two halves of a peanut or a dried bean. They contain all of the stored energy to get the plant going - shriveling up and falling off in the process. They are the first two, small, round, thick leaves. The plant continues to grow upward from these "seed leaves" untill you get the first set of, familiar, "true leaves" (narrow and pointy with serrated edges, usually with three "fingers").


So, here's to the Cotyledons!!! We hate to see them go - but hey, that's what they're here for!

And with the strain I recently grew many leaves changed to yellow as they began to fall off prior to harvest time. I go in once or so a day and just pull them away. About all that's left now are the buds surrounded by tight, little green/purple leaves that are glistening!!
