Hi Everyone - I am growing seeds under a 1" diameter fluorescent tube designed for plants.
Are 4-day old Mizuna seedlings supposed to look THIS leggy? They sprouted when they were about 7" away from the light and I moved them on day 2 to about 1/2" away from the light, almost touching it. The new growth seems just as leggy as day one's growth.
Should I put the sowed seeds right next to the light right away? Then I would have to lower them 1/2" every single day as they grow. Is this what people do?
Year after year, using various light sources, it seems my seedlings always look like this. I am so frustrated! Any thoughts? Thanks
