Sunflower Seedings

Anonymous added on February 26, 2011 | Answered

My sunflower seedlings were doing beautifully until one day, they all sort of laid down. The stalks still look healthy and they are continuing to grow leaves, but I am worried that once I transplant them to my garden, they won't 'grow up'. Any suggestions for getting them to stand up, or have I done something wrong and do I need to start over?

    It sounds like they are getting "leggy". This happens when they do not get enough light. Make sure they get more light, by either moving them to a brighter window or setting them closer to the light source you are using.
