coleus seedling help

mycubsx3June 5, 2009

I planted some coleus seedlings on mothers day. I planted coleus, 2 different kinds of pepper plants and sunflower seeds. The coleus germinated super fast..within 4 days. They got to be about an inch tall...and have done NOTHING since then.

I did plant too many to a peat pot...there are probably about 15 stems in each one..but I dont think over crowding is the issue since they still have PLENTY of room. Any suggestions?

I have tried keeping them in shade, in full sun, under flor. lights...they refuse to do anything else. They dont even have a set of true leaves yet.

They have to be thinned out, and I mean a brutal thinning. I don't know how big/small your peat pots are, but if they're small, I'd recommend one plant to a pot.

Peat pots dry out too quickly, BTW.
