Leggy Seedlings

bmc341999May 19, 2014

I bought some Burpee Pansy seeds and I put them in Jiffy Peat Pellets. They have germinated but they are about 2-2.5 inches tall and nothing has changed about them. Is this normal?

>> Is this normal?

Not really, but the peat pellets don't do much beyond the germination thing which is really all they're designed to do. At this size they should be getting some nutrition beyond the trivial amount in the peat. I'd say to either fertilize the peat or, preferably, put them in the ground or cups or pots right away, pellet and all.
