    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] Hey all [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]
    I have a special grow light just for my burmanii seedlings. Last Fryday night I stayed up late, and when I went to bed I forgot to turn the grow light for the burmanii seedlings off!!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] When I woke up all of the seedlings were brown looking and dead, but I did see a weed in the side of the pot looking fine. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] I watered them, and after 4 hours i saw that only 8 of the 30-40 seedlings survived. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] They kept dying slowly, and now I have only ONE seedling left!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] How do I keep them from dropping dead? and will some of the seedlings return from the roots? Thanks in advance

    I always place my seedlings in an air tight bag or container when for germination. I then transplant into larger containers but I do cover them to keep the humidity up. It is possible that the grow light was too hot for the plants and they simply dried up and died. The ones that recovered probably had some life left into them, but it was just too stressful.

    I hope the last seedling lives.

    Sorry to hear about your loss.

    Careful where you crawl, it might be a trap!

    Live and learn O grasshopper! The plastic bag is a good plan :-) If you need more seed, let me know! :-)

    Thanks for the offer! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Hopefully the last 2 plants won't die and I won't have to pester you for seed. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] the weed died, I was hopeing to find out what it was, but never had a chance. When I germanated them,, I had plastic wrap over the pot they were in, untill they dried out and died... I took off the plastic wrap after that and they seem to do fine in cool temperatures.

    Yay! I kind of forgot about the seedlings for 2 days, and when I checked on them this morning, I found that 15 more seedlings popped up! the first 2 survivors are getting pretty big, about this big: :: (the size of 2 colons, or 2 semicolons) but the ones I found this morning are very small, about the size of a period: .

    Good for you...and the plants.

    I have a question on this line. Would it work to place clear plastic cups over the seedings?
    I am just like a Super Hero, but without the power or motivation.................and the funky suit.

    Yes, clear plastic cups work great! Only problem is I've run out of them! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] and the humidity is high enough here that I don't need them.
