Seedlings stretching again after soil was added to cover some of the stem
    #662729 - 03/18/13 10:36 AM (3 years, 8 months ago)

Hey guys, first post here, and first grow, so thanks for any help!  :leaf:

I started my baby seedlings under a 400W MH once most of them had poked out of the ground. Temperature at 75 F, humidity at 60%.

They started stretching to an inch-2 inches, so I moved the light closer and shored up the soil. I also added a fan last night, and it seemed to make the stems thicker - but the seedlings stretched to pretty much the same height as before.

Should I move the MH closer if the heat is tolerable? I was just afraid of moving it closer than a foot to 18 inches since they are babies.

Thanks again

You definitely don't want to go closer than that.  As a seedling 1-2 inches isn't really stretching man.

How old are the seedlings?  Do they even have their first set of true leaves?

Guess I might just be paranoid! At least they aren't getting spindly.

All of them finished sprouting 3-6 days ago. I can see the true leaves on almost all of them, but none are longer than half a centimeter.

I did expect true leaf growth to be a bit faster than it is, but I guess they have been using some energy on root and stem growth.

Thanks!

Exactly.  They first set a root system in place, and then start to focus on vegetation.  So do you have true leaves?  Or the first set called cotyledons, that show up when they sprout?

True leaves are definitely there, tiny but visible. So I guess all is well. I'll be posting a grow log soon, once things get more interesting.

Thanks for easing my worries.
