Squash Plants

Indoor Vegetable Growing

Anonymous added on March 25, 2011 | Answered

I am growing several different vegetables indoors until I can plant them outside. Some of which are squash, cucumbers, watermelon, tomatoes, and peppers. I started them all in a pellet tray and have recently planted them into pots. My question is, what are cucumbers and squash supposed to look like? Some of them are leaning over and some are standing up. The ones leaning over seem to me like they are dying.  I know they are a vine, but they are tall and spindly looking.

They have too little light. They need either a brighter window or you need to get a fluorescent bulb and place that a few inches above the seedlings.
