I have new seedlings on the go , I have planted several varieties all have come up without the exception of "long Joes Cayenne" only one has merged so far but then again the "yellow Lettuce" have started coming up only today. Very soon I will have a lot more seedlings to plant some in pots , some in the garden, and some in my hydroponics.

Wow, that's nice.
On average, how deep do you plant vege seeds so that they do not topple over when watered?

Hi Salman, usually plant the seed the same depth as the size of the seed, the reason seedlings topple over they strain to reach the light, what I do when my plants get a little leggy as some of these in the photo,I increase the seedlings to more light to strengthen them up. so each day I take them outside and increase the light, but not in full sun as this would burn them.
As for watering I keep them damp by misting with a sprayer, however this does not go deep where the roots are, so I use an old piece of carpet that I get wet and sit the seedlings on top which allows wicking and keeps the plants and the roots damp but not wet. You could also use one of the thinner kitchen sponges to achieve the same results.
