Elongated stems after sprouting

A question from a fellow grower:

what do you do to prevent elongated stems, after sprouting… i just lost another ten from a friend via your way? no clue why they don’t seem to take in this climate, little rainy strong sun?

Via your way? What way is this?

What is the climate exactly? We could use a lot more info, day and night temps, humidity, etc…

Usually elongated stems is from a lack of light intensity. It can also sometimes be from too much nitrogen, maybe your nitrogen is to high in relation to the rest of the macro nutrients?
