I am searching the forum for indoor spinach advice. Did anything work for you when you adjusted the light schedule? My seeds germinated fine, the sprouts looked good and strong. I replanted them on 12/5 and they had some growth initially, but have stopped. I'm not sure if my light is too strong, too dim, on too long, not on long enough, too close, or not close enough. Currently the light is 12 inches from the tops with a 13 hour on daily schedule.

I'm trying spinach, lettuce and a couple other things with 12 hour lights. Just sprouted, too early to say.
I have certainly had cilantro and maybe some other things end up like that
12 inches from the light .. and what kind of light? I use fluorescent tubes.. and most say have the soil surface within a few inches.
If they were growing well, the pot would be ok.. as it is now the pot is kind of big, so I would be careful not to water too much.
I won't say I'm expert at this, given my track history! My past tries have been with 16 hours of light as that is what tomatoes etc want. I'm doing 12 now to stay in the 'short day' range..
