hi every one

I have started to grow some seedlings in some seedling compost they have only been in the compost about 2or three days and i have noticed the seeds are furry could any one tell me why they are in a propagator with a lid in the window above the raditor could the seeds be rotting

many thanks

They could possibly be starting to rot, either move them to a window without a radiator or remove the lid, its being to humid that causes the rot I have found.. I would start some more off as a back up or you'll have none if they don't grow

Damp and warmth probably - seeds and seedlings need to be barely moist, not wet, and heat often just cooks them - nice for a woolley mould.  Sow some more in case these don't do.
