Hi,

I've started pre-growing some plants indoors and am wondering:

1) Do you support (hold up) your sunflowers ever, indoors or outdoors? In the past i've always done it as i've been afraid they would break off in the wind but maybe that is not the case. This year i'm growing the 30 - 50 cm high variant along with some super huge 3.5 m ones! In the house they are all about 10 cm high and some are leaning over or growing kinda curvy instead of straight. Do i support them with a small stick?

2) My peas have also started off well. They are about 8 cm high and i know they are climbers but am wondering if i should support them with a mini-net or just let them fall over until i transplant them outside?

any tips are greatly appreciated :)

I'm going to guess that there under at least 6500 K rated grow lites, that are close as possible to plants ?
Also, that plants are not elongated ?
Do you have a small fan blowing on them ? Fan makes them grow sturdy.
A few pictures would really be helpful, as well as your safe planting date. For you may need to start over, with lites directly over plants.

How tall are sunflowers ?
They shouldn't have curly main stem, or need any support.

You could put a bamboo BBQ skewer next to every pea, to support them from getting tangled up with each other before you plant them outside.

Try to send a few pictures if you can.
Safe planting date, etc. as above.
Thanks, Philip 😎😎😎
