Etiolated plants will have a tendency to flop - more light helps. They can
be made more sturdy just by brushing them gently with the back of ones hand
whenever the chance occurs.
I think that many of these plants are designed to flop in nature anyway, it
is an effective way to clobber any competing plants! not a desirable trait
in a crowded green house though.
