Q.My Lettuce Seedlings Are Very Spiny And Falls Over. If I Plant Them As Per The Instructions On The Packet, They Germinate Within
5 days but they have no support. If I plant them deeper, they take forever to germinate or not. What do I need to do to get nice strong seedlings?

They likely aren't getting enough light. You may want to invest in fluorescent tubes or LED grow lights to hang a few inches above the seedlings.
