Hi,
My sister sent me a handful of seeds 2 months ago, not telling me what they are. I have been raising them and they’ve been alright until recently they started looking super sad and super floppy. They’re in a sunny spot and I’m giving them a bit of water every day. Does anyone have any ideas what might be wrong with them? Soil is currently dry/slightly moist.
Thanks for the help!

They are veggies (squash family and maybe sunflower) both are annuals. They are outside plants and need more light that living in a house could provide. They will also need more room for their roots. Since it would be hard to harden them off for outside living the best you can hope for is setting them in the shade In a large pot outdoors. watering too often can cause root rot. You’ve done really good growing the seeds indoors but they may have outgrown their conditions. Consider it all a great experiment because I find it always is even with years of playing in the dirt.

Thanks for your help! I actually found out one of them is cucumber, but I still don’t know what the tall one is. The cucumber seems to have recovered considerably since I moved it away from the window. I’m definitely going to get bigger pots for them, thanks for the tip! It’s indeed a very interesting journey and it’s so rewarding to see something you care for thrive!
