Greetings! I have 2 young plants that were leggy, so I buried the plants deeper in soil. They each have 6 leaves so far, and are planted in Happy Frog soil. At what point should I start adding nutrients to the water? Thanks.

Happy Frog soil

That stuff is good soil mate, and you wont need to add any nuits for a month or so after the plants have been planted into it. 

Lets see some pics of the plants mate, might be other reasons causing the to be leggy 🙂

Thanks for the info. I think they were leggy because I started them inside, with not enough light. Been moving them outside intermittently until they get stronger .

Most likely mate, thats would cause them to stretch. When they are indoors, make sure you still have a fan blowing at them, the breeze will help the stems stay strong and stop them growing tall so quickly.

Strong breeze makes strong trees!

you could try a vitamin b supplement for the stress if they don’t start to kick out.  Make sure to dry out between watering too. 

It is better to keep one’s mouth shut and let everyone think You’re a fool than to open it and prove them all right
