Penstemon seedlings

Posted: 08/04/2013 at 12:23

The same thing is starting to happen again. I just dont understand it everything else is doing really well. These have not been grown under lights

So far i have eliminated: Growing under lights, container depth, moisture levels.

I dont thinks its damping off as its the leaves that go brown the stems dont collapse imediately. The window they are on is west facing.


 

 

Seeds are up

Anyone growing delphiniums, is it normal for stems to be quite fragile. Got plenty growing now and the plants are getting bigger with the better weather. Lost a few lobelia to the cold but everything else seems fine so far however my lobelia cardinalis have stayed quite small for the time being. my dahlia tuber has sprouted also.

I have had 1 germinate so far. I can see b&q calling lol. Could it be too warm its 25 degrees in the room due to the sun shining through the window. I know its not the best temerature but if anything i would have thought it would have speeded up germination.
