Lettuce doesn’t do well in a small pot. Better to grow it in the ground or a large trough it’s struggling

Oh really? I bought it as red wing lettuce mix from #bakercreek , I think all I get is rocket seeds then. Cant plant on ground,no space. Thanks a lot @linfoster

@buzzygems lettuce can also get leggy when receiving not enough sunlight, I’ve had a few bolt like this when they are in too much shade

Oh that explains it then. It's in the green house,but the sun seem to be too much for it. Thank you @robbo13
