Hard to tell, photo is too small. My guess, and it's just a guess, you over fertilized. Miracle soil has fertilizer already in it so adding more may be too much for the plant. The pots might be too small too.

Hard to overfertilize a collard. My guess is that they are severely root bound. They need a lot of space.

What was the analysis of the fertilizer you used? I'm wondering alternatively if they got enough of all the essential nutrients.

My guess is that it is not enough nitrogen (it's hard to find sufficient details for the fertilizer but one analysis I did find suggested it also doesn't contain much in the way of trace elements). It also depends how much of the 3-4-4 you gave them and how often. I would try giving them something higher in the first number (nitrogen).
