Ginadicamillo said:I have some sees that are growing in pots near a window and with grow light on as well . Everything was doing really well with this particular flower seed. They germinated well, started growing nicely then almost overnight they were spindly leggy and flopping over. I know it is said that lack of sufficient light, not enough water or poor soil can be the cause of this. My question is not how to avoid the problem but how to FIX can the spindly leggy seedlings be SAVED? ? I transferred a few to a bigger pot elevated closer to light and propped a few with a stick but that didn't help much. Then in desperation i just cut the thinner parts off down to the thicker part of seedling stem and also packed a bit more soil around . my question is by cutting the thin skinny part will this seedling still grow ? can it start over?
I really wanted this particular flower but ordered only 40 seeds . So i am desperate to save as many seedlings as possible. Also not all of the seedlings did this i have 5 strong ones .
Thanks in advance!
