    Brie,

    Was the peat pot that it came in originally so wet all the time? And did you just plonk the whole thing into the new pot?

    TIA!

    Yeah, at the nursery they were growing them in peat pots, in a water tray with just enough water to cover the bottom of the tray. When I potted it, I tore away the bottom of the peat pot really carefully, then set it into a hole in the substrate that I had made in the shape of the pot(used a different 2-3" pot).

    Thanks, Brie! I have already killed more than 10 seedlings plants from either under-watering or heat wave (dried out them out).

    This was the thing i was wondering also. It got me thinking that maybe my media is too dry, too much sand and dries out too quickly. Add the terracotta pot and losing water way too quickly all the time. So far they grow, get nice and big and die.... Either that or for me it is too much UV light for their liking.....
