    They were growing fine from seed started 4/13. In the last 3 weeks they progressively went down hill. Not much left now but the memories. I didn't see any fungus gnat larva and sprayed with 1/2 strength captan when they started turning. Anyone got ideas ?

    this is an annual species, did it flower and seed before it died? Because in nature they flower and set down seed then die

    that would have been nice but no. maybe the sunroom got warm too fast ? it's been very hot out there lately 90+ F. I moved them to the basement approx. 70 F but they still went down from there, kinda like the grass I haven't mowed for a month.

    in total probably only 2 1/2 months, they got about 1" to 1.5" tall with 10 or so leaves each. My D. adelae seemed to go dormant at the same time but has now come back with more growth since being covered up and cooled off. I think maybe the D. indica just fried their roots ? How long do they generally live in months ?

    Everything else is moved from the (west side) sunroom and onto the cooler (east side) porch or down in the basement (the remainder of the seedlings). Nothing else has kicked the bucket so I was wondering if the D. indica is picky. Illinois plains are finally cooling off. It's too bad we had to wait for a hurricane to get a little rain.
