Seedling is too weak to stand. HELP!

Discussion in 'First Time Marijuana Growers' started by Lighteningrod, May 14, 2011.

  1. I just started my first seedling, I germinated in a paper towel for 5 days before planting. My sprout has been in the soil for 11 days now and it isnt strong enough to stand upright on its own. It is very tall and has one set of leaves and another set is coming in. I dont know what I can do to help the sprout to be able to stand by itself and why its taking so long to grow... Any suggestions???:confused_2:

  2. looks like your plant is stretched,meaning its trying to reach for the light source. try lowering the lighting
  3. Your seedling is stretching for the light. That is what happens when you have the light to far away. You need it very close.
  4. When will it start to get stronger?
  5. when it begins to get a bit bigger, put a very weak fan on low next to it! it'll make it grow a thick stem!

    It will get bigger as it strengthens ( a day or two )
  6. Transplant it into a bigger pot bury a majority of the stem and get a small fan blowing lightly on it, also give the plant more light or it will keep stretching.
