Covering stems of Spindly seedlings

by James

Question on indoor seed planting.

Attentiveness is not my strong suit..:o) With that said, I have ended up with a lot of my seeds having spent too much time under the lights at a greater distance and thus they are long thin spindly my solution has been to take that seedling and to place it in a larger container.

Sometimes the stem is like a string, so I have gently wound them down (spiral) and then covered them up with fresh potting mix...right to the bottom of the green leaves (generally two). Then a fresh water.

Anyone tried to do this? If so what were the results? Did they still grow properly and transplant outside with results?

Any help would be appreciated..... James
