Hello everyone, why does the seedling grow with such a crooked neck?


And why are they so much longer this time than last time even though they are the same seeds?

It’s just crooked because it grew faster than it could support itself on a quest for light. Some grow faster or have weaker stems so they curve more. It’s nothing unusual, we’ve seen it many times so no worries. If it were me I’d bury 1/2 to 2/3 of those spindley stems. Roots will sprout from the buried stem. Biggest thing to do is give them more light, about 250PAR is best right now. That will stop them from stretching excessively again.

Cool then I'll do that, thanks for the answers @monkeydo


That’s stretch due to a lack of light intensity. Move them closer to the light. When you transplant them you can bury some of that extra stem in the soil without issue

Excellent, thanks for the quick reply. Can you please tell me how much of it I can bury, an inch, 2? and why it is crooked? only one of them, that i wonder most. Could this be a telltale sign of bad genetics?
