Spinach seedling - picture - slow growth?
Indoor seed starting - this seedling is almost 3 weeks old since planting. Do you think it should be farther along? Those are its first set of true leaves. I'm doubting my lighting, and possibly my soil. But I don't know, maybe it's fine. I just don't know how big it should be. It is 2 1/2" (65mm) tall. I germinated in a moist paper towel then planted the seed in the cell. So when I say it is 3 weeks old I mean it has been 3 weeks since i placed the seed in the paper towel.

^ FYI the two smallest seedlings you see are 4 days younger than the others, and planted directly into the soil rather than using the paper towel method.
On a side note, and mostly because I can't find answers elsewhere, does anyone get emails for replies to threads you have created? I have never got any even though I always check the option to have them sent to me. There doesn't seem to be a "See threads by this user" function either so the only way I have to check for replies is by making a document on my computer and saving the links to the different threads I have made and checking them periodically. And you'd think there may be something wrong with my email but I don't think there is, I received the registration emails just fine and no gardenweb emails are in my junk box. I use google mail.
