Q.Why Is My Dill Plant Flimsy?
I bought packeted dill seeds and grew them in a medium sized pot. I spray mist water everyday if the soil is dry. I live in a cold climate weather (about 3°C right now) so we only get a bit of sunlight. So the pot is by the window. They germinated and grew extremely thin and long and they can’t stand upright. Very flimsy. Is this normal?

Your pot should be deep enough for the plants to grow a tap root. Your plants may need some artificial light and a bit of fertilizer. The soil should be fairly warm, so perhaps growing by the window is a little too cold for them.
