I'm super extra new to growing things. Also, I'm rather poor so I'm just working with what I can get on the cheap.
I've started with a 36 cell jiffy "greenhouse" (the kind with the dirt pellets that you expand). My small sugar pumpkins sprouted really quickly (4 days after planting) and began throwing roots out all over the place, so I put them in 6" pots.
At first, I just had a normal lamp on the tray, but I decided to get full spectrum bulbs (incandescent, because I'm poor and they were only $3, as opposed to any other type of full spectrum bulbs, which are super expensive on the net).
When my pumpkins first sprouted, the leaves were open - like this:
Right now, most of them are closed and one of them is closed rather tightly:
Again, I don't really know what I'm doing. I've tried to do some reading on the net. I've looked for info about closed leaves, and found nothing.
I thought maybe the full spectrum lights would help, but they haven't.
Tried moving the light closer, but that hasn't helped.
Is this a problem?
If it is a problem, how do I fix it?
Any help is appreciated - thanks!
