With many seedlings, if they're getting leggy while inside it's because they are stretching towards the light. What is their light situation? If they're sitting on a window sill, is it South facing? Even in a South window I bet they could use some extra light. My veggie seedlings are in a South window and also have lights from above for 12+ hours a day.
They can also build up stronger stems if you have some air circulating to simulate a wind. I have an oscillating fan that comes on twice a day for 15 minutes. Until they learn what wind is, they don't plan appropriately.
I concur that it's a light issue. I'm having the same problem with Nasturtium. They grew 100x faster than anything I planted and they are touching the grow light while most of the other seedlings are maybe an inch. It's crazy. I think that Goji are a little leggy naturally. I have a couple of two-year-old Goji outside and they grow straight up almost like a vine.
I'm using a T-5 grow light if you can swing it get a grow light specifically for them. I have a southern facing window (there is still snow on the ground) and it is not enough. I'm not sure of your situation but you could use a cold frame.
I totally know how you feel. I tried to sprout 15 Serbian spruce seeds and only 1 sprouted so I'm totally babying the one tree.
Thanks guys i have a full spectrum light bar that i have set on them now for about a week they get at least 16 hours of light and they do look somewhat better then they recently did ...they're still all floppy and droopy so i think ill get a fan for them that seems to be the only way to train them up i really want these to succeed i would love to have goji berry its a beautiful plant. Anyways ill keep up the light get a lil fan and see how it changes them i will give a little update to see if they do better.
Goji tend to be leggy anyway. Once you plant them out, they flop all over, tend to be spindly, and they'll grab you with their thorns as you walk past. If you aggressively prune them, they tend to die back, leaving stumps where formerly there were leggy branches. That's what you get with goji berry bushes.
But they are robust and easy to grow.
