Brussels Sprouts


Anonymous added on April 21, 2011 | Answered

I have grown some Brussels. I started them from seed in the house, but as they have grown, they have become lanky or stringy and they lay down in their pots. Do you think they will still be ok, or do you think I have to start afresh, in somewhat cooler conditions (as I just read from this site you need to start them in cooler conditions)?

At this point, you will need to start over. But the lankiness was caused by a lack of light. They need more sunlight or use a fluorescent light to help add more light to the seedlings.
