Wow. Does not even look like Rosemary.
Those peat sprouting pots should be soaked in water regularly until the plants are at least a few inches tall.
If thats a watered plant pictured, you need lots more water. The pot itself absorbs most of it anyway.
Soak them until they are water logged. Then allow then to dry out a little before soaking again.
This is not the time to parch them. You will kill them.

And what a very good idea that is. Nice needle size and seems like very easy to train. I wonder if there is a variety with shorter needles?
For anyone that wants to grow Rosemary, cuttings are great for propagating.
I take some at the end of season and put cuttings in water. I keep the water changed and allow them to grow in the water until spring.
Then they go into pots or into the garden.
I am working solely with seeds and cuttings these days.
