I started snow peas indoors from seed. Now they are three weeks old and about 6″ tall with 3-4 sets of leaves. I’ve had them under a grow light, but they still seem spindly. Should I pinch them back to make them bushier or will that be harmful?

I would wait to pinch them until they get planted outside.
