Why do all the plants I start get so dam leggy. Started cauliflower and broccoli. Came up four days ago last night already like 4" tall and falling over. Have grow lights about 3" over top of trays. Could it be cause dirt  is to warm because I left heat mat on cause all seeds weren't up yet. Used to have better luck just in the living room window without grow lights. My two little girls took that option away for now.

The sun in your window was bright, sounds like your bulbs may be going dim. Led grow lights work well, keep them about 2' above seedlings. They are bright, if you get these lights too close they will burn your seedlings.

I used to use regular shop lights.  But the more light the better.   Just ask your neighborhood grow operation.    

 

Just be careful not to cook the seedlings.

My neighbor is a master gardener and I know her basement glows very bright. Maybe the purple things I bought are for plants that are already grown.

I ended up getting new led shop lights to use and fixed the problem. My new issue is I set them out to get a little real sun and forgot them outside overnight and it froze. Guess it wasn't meant to be.

I got this in an email from Mother Earth News on the 21st. You are not too late to try again. I bet you will succeed this time, after all the third time is a charm!
