Radishes problems

luchezarsFebruary 16, 2013

Hi, everybody!

I am new to gardening and I tried growing radishes in a container in my apartment. All of the seeds germinated but after a week or so the plants became way too tall and lanky - so tall that some of them have collapsed back to the ground. Also, they only developed a pair of very small leaves. Any ideas as to what I might be doing wrong? I noticed they tend to turn towards the light source, so I tried supplementing them with a 6500k grow light, but that didn't help much.

Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

You are right in that they needed much more light. When growing indoors, the seedlings need that strong light from hour one after they emerge.
