I'm a newbie to gardening. My first batch of arugula and wild rocket was looking good - contrary to expectations, they germinated.
Then when the sprouts got to about an inch tall, I thinned them out so there's not more than 1 - 2 sprouts per inch cell. Instead of cutting to thin them, I transplanted. I've put them in the south facing window, I've misted them about 3 times a day. They're looking alive - that is, they're still green and haven't dried out.
But only barely. They look spindly and limp and none are standing tall. Instead all the sprouts are wanting to lay down. The leaves are still tiny (but green), and only a very tiny set of first true leaves have appeared. There doesn't seem to have been any change in the appearance of these sprouts for days.
Is this time for patience? or do I need to intervene to help the little guys?
Any wisdom on this matter would be much appreciated.
