Why do my plants grow long and slender?
When I start my plants from seeds, they grow long and slender instead of strong and firm. What could be the problem? I start them in the kitchen using starter mix in peat pots.
Young plants grown indoors need a fan blowing on them to imitate the wind outdoors. This helps to grow thicker, stronger stems. Also, if they don't get plenty of sunlight, they will grow tall and slender. One more thing, at night the plants should be placed in a cooler place to help grow healthy stems.
