Plants can get leggy if they are reaching for the light or if you fail to pinch them back periodically during the growing season. Make sure your plants are getting adequate light and then encourage new growth by pinching out the growing tips of each of the stems. Pinching them out will result in new growth further back on the stems. This should result in a fuller plant. Enjoy!
