Seedling Question

Posted by foolishpleasure 7a (My Page) on

When the seedlings germinate and start getting taller and thin like crazy. I want them to be short and thick. I am thinking of not filling the pot with soil to the rim with prim may be to half capacity then add soil to them after germination. Can this work. I know it works for Tomatoes because when I do that The Tomatoes grow more roots. How about the other stuff like pepper, egg plant and the others. Does any one know?

I have buried eggplants and peppers deeply with great results.

I think you have a great idea!
