VFT Seedlings falling over

by rpe » Sun Sep 06, 2009 3:55 am

My VFT seedlings are falling over is it because I used pure peat? They have a root still growing into the peat but they lay over on their side. I took a tooth pick and pushed them down till they stood back up. These are Steve_D seeds and also I may have a yellow or possibly an albino not sure yet. I will summit a photo soon.

Sometimes seedlings just don't root well and need a little help. It could also be that you have fungus gnat larvae eating the roots. Have you inspected for this?

No. What do they look like? Do you need a magnifying glass?

It depends on how good your eyesight is. You should be able to see them unaided, but it's not easy because they're tiny. Here are some on a 1mm grid:

I found some in my outside plants but none in my seedling container.
