Answer: When seedlings do not get enough light they become leggy or spindly so the key is to provide adequate light. I use regular shop lights. They have two fluorescent tubes and a hood, and can be outfitted with chains or ropes so you can adjust the height of the source of light. After the seeds sprout, place the lights about 2 inches above the tops of the plants. Move the lights up as the seedlings grow, keeping it only 2 inches above the plants and keeping the lights on 14-16 hours a day. Your plants will be stout and sturdy by the time the weather's warm enough to plant them outdoors. Best wishes with your seedlings.
