I have planted seeds in growing trays. I was wondering why some of the
plants seem to have a very thin stem at the soil level.
The rest of the plant stem is thick but the thinning of the stems seems like
it will not support the plants and some of them are falling over.
I use a floresent lighting system after the seeds have germinated.
Thanks in advance
Sounds like you may be dealing with "damping off", a fungal disease of
seedlings. Try increasing both the relative humidity and air circulation
around the seedlings, or use a fungicide on the seedlings.
Some gardeners report success from watering with room-temperature chamomile
tea or sprinkling with cinnamon.
