Hi @sebij19! Your seedlings are suffering from lack of light, they tend to grow vertically (stretch) in order to get more light. As a temporary fix, you need to give them a support, like a bamboo stick, and tie them to the support with cotton yarn. You can also increase the amount of medium in your container (add some more soil, up to the 1st node for each seedling). As a permanent fix, you need to increase the light they get (make sure no shade is blocking the light). Finally, next time I'd recommend to protect them with a DIY greenhouse (plastic bottle) for the 10-14 first days. Outdoor conditions could be tough, those babies are fragile. Hope this will help, keep us up-to-date, and happy growing :facepunch:

hey there the temperature is too high during the day, so the plant is doing that. try to keep a nice breeze happening, maybe even partial shade. wrap your pots with something white to keep them as cool as possible. you want the roots to stay cool so the plant can be healthy. I hope she pulls through man !

Hello ! You should make a support to help her recover , in fact your plant grow too tall (stretch) and the stem is now a little bit weak but nothing irrevirsible , it's happen when the light is too high , in shady area outside or when you don't have enough airflow to make to stem get stronger. I hope it will help you :grin::+1:
