I've been trying to grow herbs from seeds
indoors recently. I'm in a condo, so indoors is all I am able to do.
So far, what I've geen getting is nowhere what the picture on the package looks like and I have no idea why.
Here's what I've been doing:
I use a herb starting soil mix bought from a local greenhouse
I start them under 2 flourescent lights (one regular, one for growing
) for about 16 hrs a day.
I've had good success getting them to germinate.
The stems never seem to thicken and they end up falling over.
They are spindly things with very small leaves and are totally unusable.
They are now out from under the lights but they haven't improved.
I've tried cutting them down to regrow and they grow the same way.
I follow this up by posting a picture, but for now, has anybody got any suggestions?
Am I keeping the lights on too long?
