I've come across the term "damping off" many times in this forum. I gather that it has somethg to do with the premature death of little seedlings/plantlets.
I have got about 6 little d.intermedia plantlets now. They're about 2-7 weeks old. I've set all of them in little pots with peat/sand and covered the pot with a plastic sheet and put the whole set-up in a tray of rainwater.
How do I prevent these from damping off and dying? What in fact is "damping off"?
I appreciate all replies. Thanks.
