  2. P.S.
    This is day one
     
  3. Just by looking at how the shadow of the cup is cast, it is clear the light is over to the left side of the photo. The plant is growing its leaves (solar panels) to face the incoming light. If you want it to grow "straight," put the light above the plant.

  5. If that's the case, you might want a fan to blow on the seedling. It's starting to grow large enough that the baby leaves are outweighting the soft tissue that eventually becomes stem; to counter this, that soft tissue needs to be strengthened. The best way to do that is to present the plant with a stressor (the fan), and allow the plant to learn to grow a healthier and more dense stem.
