Forget Me Nots

Anonymous added on April 16, 2014 | Answered

I was given a small pot with Forget-Me-Not seeds. I planted them according to the directions, which at the end said "Watch your flowers grow!" Making me think that after planting there wasn't much else I needed to do. When the soil is dry I water it. However, the seeds sprout and grow about 1.5-2 inches before they fall over and die. I've plucked out a few, thinking maybe their roots have reached the bottom of the pot but, no, the roots were only a few centimeters long. What can I do? Do I need to get a different pot? Should I try to give the plant more sun? I'm not sure which type of Forget-Me-Knots I have, so I don't know how much sun and water I should be giving them. Thank you so much for your help.
