top heavy seedling

  1. ok i just planted my first seed about a week ago and everthing was going good until the other morning i found it propped up against the lip of the flower pot. There are about 6-8 leaves on it now and its about 6inches tall from soil to tip. I had it sitting in a window getting about 5-6hrs of sunlight a day, but since it fell over i moved it outside to a quiet spot and tried propping it up but i havnen't noticed a change yet. it still seems very healthy and has vigourous growth, but is there anything more i can do to keep it from falling over?
     
  2. It will get stronger as the wind strengthens it more and more. Next time before putting it outside, have a fan blowing on it to strengthen it up. Seedlings are very delicate and one that is not used to wind can get snapped with one gust.
