Every year I try to start seedlings indoors I have the same problem. The plants start to grow but the stalks are tall and spindly. There is plenty of light until early PM. Do I need to get a "grow Light" instead of using the natural sunlight? Inside temp. is around 68 degrees, is this too cool? Any suggestions.
Your plants are not getting enough light. I found this out myself from trying to grow plants next to a window, they need more "direct" sunlight.
If you cannot get at least 4-6 hours of direct sun each day, then go ahead and buy a grow light. They come in different styles depending on your setup, regular light bulb, spot light, long flouresent tubes.
Thanks for you help, I'll certainly try a grow light.
I may be wrong, buy I think morning-to-noon light is better than afternoon. Something to do with getting rid of moisture collected overnight.
