Q.Horse Chestnut Seedlings

Anonymous added on March 10, 2014 | Answered

I am growing six horse chestnuts indoors from seed. They are 8 to 24″ tall now but the stems a very crooked. I rotate them 180 degrees once per day. What do I need to do to get the stems to straighten out? I plan to plant them outside next spring. Thanks.

You could place a stake of some sort in the container and lightly tie the stem to it, maybe with a piece of pantyhose to keep it from damaging the tender stem as it grows.
