I'm from namma bengaluru.

I'm new to gardening and just started off few weeks back. Need some help regarding spinach seedlings.
I mixed red soil & coco- peat for planting and sown spinach seeds. Most of the seeds germinated well within 2 weeks.
However, lot of the seedlings seems to be falling over. Is this a common sign in spinach or am I doing anything wrong here ?

I am watering them once in the morning and haven't added any fertilizers to it yet.

Have posted pictures here :

Appreciate your response & suggestions.

Seeds falling is common if light levels are very low. In your case they appear to be lanky. You move them to a sunny spot and also if they plants are too lanky you can add some media on the to cover them up a little bit.
