    I have recently planted some seeds and they have gone very very leggy, more than i have seen before. The seedlings are about 5 or 6 inch tall and have 2 sets of true leaves and are looking healthy apart from being lanky.
    I would normally pot them on now intop 15 litre containers but im not sure if they will survive or will they just sort themselves out later on??
    I am thinking of planting them an inch or 2 deeper than i would normally.
    Any advice would ease my worried mind guys.... :-(

    It sounds like you need to get the light (what light are you using?) closer and get a fan on them... still I can only imagine them,,without seeing any pics.......good luck with them

    if your seedlings are not in a dome, would it help to cover up babies by putting a plastic cup over them to keep moisture and humidity high?

    we need pics and more info and if your going to transplant then just drop them in and add more dirt up around them

    Agreed. After a few weeks the buried stem will begin to develop roots.

    I started them on a window ledge then once they showed there first true leaves after about a week i put them under a 400 watt HPS, about 2 feet above. the room has a 8 inch extracter but i did not put a fan on them because i thought it mite dry them out with them being so young... so i can only assume it is the heat that has caused them to stretch?? Think i will use a florecent next time or by a smaller ocsillating fan.
    I have repotted them now (2 weeks) and burried them an inch or so lower than usual and they look fine for now....
    Cheers for your feedback guys
