I started Burpee’s cauliflower seeds indoor on 21st February, 2009 in
peat moss strips with the soil less media (50% peat moss + 50%
vermiculite). I kept them in 68 F next to my window. The germination
took place in 4 days. During the last 4 weeks it grown up to 3 to 4
inches height with only 2 small leaves and yesterday it just broken
down half-way & died. The stem was hair thin and that caused the
plant to brake, I believe.
What is wrong with my indoor setup? I took care of it really well.
Thanks in advance.

For damping off, what you say is good. Years ago I started sprinkling
the surface of the starting mix with cinnamon, a proven antifungal,
and have had not a single seedling damp off.
Smells damned fine also. :-)
One alsi needs to keep artificial lights within and inch or so of the
seedlings and be sure you have full coverage with your lights.
