Eggplant Seedling Question - Knowledgebase Question

It's my first time starting eggplant seeds indoors, and I have a question. The first true leaves (not the cotlyedons), though large, are starting to lose color and turn a pale green-yellow. The 2nd - 4th sets of leaves are still dark green. The plants are about 4-5

I don't think the yellowing lower leaves are anything to worry about as long as the upper leaves are strong and healthy. You can feed with a half strength dilution of a water soluable fertilier such as Miracle Gro. Best wishes with your eggplants!
