The tomato sprouts are leggy, which means they have a very long stem and two little leaves at the top. This is due to lack of light. I am going to leave the fluorescent lights on over night. I may also raise the trays so the plants are closer to the lights. And tomorrow I am going to get all the ingredients to make a soil mix and fertilizer, which I listed in my previous post. It is suggested that the tomatoes be transplanted soon as they may get so tall they will not be able to stay vertical. So to remedy this, they need to be transplanted deep into the soil. By having the majority of the stem under the soil the plant will have more stability.
