Radishes problems

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.

RE: Radishes problems

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.
