I planted some viola seeds about 3 weeks ago, I had them covered (as I read they do prefer darkness to germinate), then moved them to a sunny window once they started to germinate. (I also kind of move them from window to window depending where it's sunnier). The thing is, the sprouts are tall and thin and don't really look like they are getting any stronger. Is there a way to save them and what shall I do to avoid the same situation in the future?

Welcome!

They aren't getting enough sun. Indoor light, no matter how strong, is shade outside. Violas are sun plants.
