Seedlings staying very small

SequoiaMatt99May 30, 2014

I've grown many plants from seed before, and they usually do fairly well, but certain plants (especially celosias) have only grown a couple leaves and have stayed looking as only one week old, compared to my marigolds, for example, that were planted on the same date and are garden-ready.
Any suggestions for getting seedlings to mature?

After reading some other posts, I think the problem is that they were very leggy. So today I planted them in the ground, burying the legs, so hopefully they toughen up and start growing vigorously.
