Furthermore, why does my plant fall over?
Over- or Under-Watering Keeping soil moisture levels can be tricky with indoor plants. Leaf drop can occur either because the soil is too wet or too dry. In general, don't water until the top inch or so of potting soil feels dry, and when you do water, give the plant a thorough soaking.
Likewise, how do I stop my plants from growing too tall? Reduce Number of Light Hours Per Day If you have a strain that's been growing taller for more than 6 weeks after the switch to 12/12, change to a shorter day such as 11/13 or 10/14, which will force the plant to fully start flowering and stop growing new stems and leaves.
In this manner, will leggy seedlings survive?
Continued lack of moisture will turn them spindly and eventually kill them as they're unable to access the nutrients they need. With tiny seeds, it's tempting to simply scatter them in one large tray and thin them as they grow, but proper spacing helps prevents leggy seedlings as well.
How do I strengthen my plant stems?
Calcium helps build strong cell walls within your plant and helps resist disease (which can lead to soft, drooping plants). Potassium helps strengthen your plants in the vegging stage, providing aid in developing strong branches and stems.
