I have some seedlings that came up yesterday. Today they are about 2.5 inches tall and about to fall over. What can I do to save these?

If it's not too late already, move then very close to the light source. That's all I can recommend.

Depending on the plant species, pinching out new leaves may encourage branching and less leggy growth. But improved light in any event.

As greene said. " If not to late. "

Lites should be close as possible, to lites.
Providing they don't burn seedlings/plants.

Now ! LED grow lites, burn so cool ! That, vege seedlings can grow, right up against lite, and they won't burn.
👍👍👍
