    My Amphetamine auto-flower seed sprouted, the cotyledons are leaning, almost at a 90 degree angle. I'll try to put up a picture. The sprout is healthy and everything, it's just leaning. It's about 3 days old now.

  2. hey more info could help. probably overwatered or light is to high. hope it helps
  3. it look's like it's stretching for light.  move your light closer...  when i have this prob. i prop it up with toothpicks.
  4. What exactly do the toothpicks do? Probably a dumb question. But I always see people with stakes next to their plants but what benefit do they really have? Wouldn't the plant just kind of continue to grow disregarding the stakes?
  5. i cross the toothpicks and put the seedling in-between.  this supports it until it gets stronger.  moving the light closer stops the stretching.
  6. Thanks for the replies guys, I moved the light about an inch from the seedling.
  7. But I know it's stretching, I'm going to add more soil in the cup. I'm worried about the top of the plant being sideways, I've never seen that happen to a sprout before.
