Miracle gro seed starter mix

So I bought a bag of miracle gro seed starter mix. It’s just peat moss, so I thought. I germinated 2 seed, paper towel method. when they sprouted a tap root, I put them into solo cups with a 50/50 mix of perlite and seed starter mix. Both of the seeds made it to the top of the soil then stopped before the husks came off. And they just stayed there. So, being the curious person that I am, I gently pulled the seedlings out of the medium. They came right up. No resistance at all! When I looked at the tap roots, the ends were curled up and did not look happy. Now I was really curious, so I looked at the bag of starter peat moss, and low and behold, the stuff is enriched with miracle gro food. So this just leads me to believe that the SEED starter “mix” is too hot for the seedlings. WTF. has anyone else had any experience with this stuff? I have 2 more seeds germinating now and they will be going into a 50/50 coco/perlite mix this time. I already have 2 in there that just started veg. About 3 weeks old and started the training on them last night. These two were started in used/depleted soil, basically inert soil. so there was no way they were going to burn. Now they are in miracle gro cactus, palm, citrus mix at about 70/30 soil/perlite and happy as heck! The food that is in this mix isnt the “feeds for 6 months” stuff. Just enriched with the nutients outa the bag. And the ratio is 0.6-0.2-0.4 so half of that is 0.3-0.1-0.2 which is found to be the optimum ratio for cannabis (3-1-2 or so I have read)
