Answer: I was a "leggy seedling" myself, so I can empathize with your snaps! You can indeed plant them with the horizontal stem under the soil. To prevent legginess in the future, keep your plants within 1" of the flourescent bulbs. Otherwise, the light the seedlings receive is not intense enough for proper growth, and they stretch towards it to get their light needs met. When various flats of seedlings grow at different rates, you can elevate them with piles of newspaper (or bricks, or what have you) to get them all within an inch of the bulbs. Enjoy!
