My title says it all. I started english cucumber seeds down my basement. They were doing well with tenrils coming and then all of a sudden they are turning a lighter green on the edges of the leaves. Could you please explain this.

Sounds like your cucumber plants are crying out for more nutrients. Feed with with a half strength dilution of water soluable fertilizer every 2-3 weeks. Use Miracle Gro or Peter's diluted to half strength and water with this dilution every 2-3 weeks. Best wishes with your seedlings!
