Seed Swaps

seedlings too pale?

My lettuce seedlings are a very light green compared to my other seedlings. They are also very spindly. Most of my seedlings are. I’m looking for a picture to reassure myself that this is the right color, or maybe because they are in the center of the growing system, they are not getting enough water. What would cause all my seedlings to be very tall with few leaves?

My lettuce seedlings are always paler than my other seedlings. My lettuce plants are always paler than, for instance, my kale plants. Lettuce, even green lettuces, are just yellower than lots of other garden vegetables.Very tall with few leaves is generally a sign of not enough light. They’re reaching. If you can get the light closer to the seedlings somehow, that would probably help.
