Zucchini seedlings

Zone 55375 | Betsywilliamson34 added on April 28, 2017 | Answered

I started Zucchini seeds about 2 weeks and have gotten some great growth started. However, I have noticed that the leaves are not opening as they have in past years for me. Is this a sign of a problem? I have included a picture. Thanks in advance for advise!

The seedlings look like they are a bit leggy and reaching for sunlight.
You should place them in a sunny window and can rotate them to help them grow evenly.
You can use a grow light to help with growth.
