I ve sown some Cintia knizei seedlings and they look like etiolated.They are close to 2months old.
Do they grow like this? I ve searched but couldnt find any photos of early stage of the Cintia seedlings.

They look ok to me. Cintia seedling often look like that, the seedlings should start looking more rounded as they grow. :smile:

Normal. Maybe slightly stretched, but don't panic. Not sure if they look like this in habitat, but those will produce happy adults.

Mine are not this stretched. But I guess it depends mostly on how your other seedlings are doing. I have seen before you grow nice plants, so if your other seedlings are not this etiolated looking, I am sure these are just stretchy on their own account (and maybe the strechness even depends on its original locality).

Thank you all for your answers, i feel relaxed now.:)
i think other seedlings are doing fine under same conditions.

Here are Echinomastus unguispinus laui seedlings and another seedling germinated with them after 3months, i dont know which specie it is.
