Leggy Seedlings


My first attempt at growing from seed indoors: not so successful. Something I’d read said to expose the seedlings to light very gradually, but apparently? In Seattle, full light is probably not even enough for seedlings.

They got leggy. Tall, thin, and flopped over. The basil in the top row isn’t so terrible, and I’m starting a new batch tonight now that I know what the problem is. I’ve got these guys sitting on a desk in A’s room, and since there’s already a table lamp in there, I’m running out and buying a fluorescent bulb for it this evening. Short, fat stems: here we come.
