Seedlings with too long of a stem

My seedlings have stems about 6" long and not standing tall they're in 2" of soil inside. Should I repot in a deeper pot and coverup part of the stem so they are straight or should I stake them? Thanks for the advice. It is still too early to plant in the outside garden. :cool027::439:

yea, drop the lights, and repot the seedling into a deeper pot so that the bottom leaves are just above the soil. You can use a LITTLE clone gel to rub on the stem before burrying it to stimulate root growth out of the stem, but apply it very very lightly. ;)

They should root all the way up that way, and be happy after a week or 2.

good luck girl and guy. !
