snapdragon seedlings won't grow

I have tried a few times to grow snapdragons from seeds without success.

I am growing some now which I started on Easter. They are about an inch and a half tall with just the two first leaves on a stalk that is as thin as a hair. Is this what it is supposed to look like at this point?

Well, mine don't. Snapdragons are a royal pain, but I love them. They are a fall/winter flower here.

How much light are they getting? Too little will make them spindly and too much dries them up. Try spraying them with kelp & see if that helps. Also, if you have them in starter mix, they need food. I use fish emulsion.

Hope this helps.

RE: snapdragon seedlings won't grow

This was my 1st year growing snapdragons from seed. I wintersowed them and the they were the 1st to sprout and the 1st to bloom. They have been blooming for 2 months now and they are beautiful! Try wintersowing them! It really works great and they are strong seedlings!
