andrebazhen Posted May 22 Report Share Posted May 22 Hi all, I am trying to germinate W. robusta (also some L. Peltata and date seeds) on my windowsill. A month ago some white mold (photo1) killed all my seedlings - sure I overwatered them. Copper fungicide, H2O2 - no result. Now I've got 50 seeds in two differents types of soil with different soaking time and with H202 soaking. Less than a week - 90% spouted and looking fine (photo2). I've got two questions: 1) I use separate open bag for each seed (photos3-4) and got drainage at the bottom to prevent overwatering and underwatering: using a straw, I pour water straight to the bottom and bottom heat mat slowly raises the moisture to the top. Is it a good solution? Ain't it stupid? 2) I'm afraid that this mold will return when the seedlings come to the surface. Any advice? Some old batch seeds in separate cans are infected too (while been overwatering too), but tangerine seedligs look fine 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
