How are yours doing? My seedlings seem to be only so-so. I’d say only half of them are standing up, the others are falling over. I don’t know if they need more fertilizer, more water, less water, more light, less light, or if they just should have been planted more densely so they support each other!

They came up really fast and seem to be holding their own. I switched to a cool light only (120 equiv compact fluor) when I noticed my leeks falling over and getting a little singed under the 150. REALLY need some 65F days so I can put the onions and brassicas out in the sun during the day.
