how to grow red bell pepper?

I am growing bell pepper plants from seed, but their root systems seem very weak and the stems are spindly. Any advice?

Where are you growing them? When the plants first show they need full light and warm conditions. If the stems are spindly it could be they are ina room and not out in a glass house or open garden, terrace or balcony. They need light from all sides or they will grow and stretch towards the light. You also need good potting soil or rich garden soil. I have beautiful peppers each year in my garden and small ones on my balcony.
