This morning, I noticed this on a couple of my Adeniums - a Somalense seedling and an Arabicum seedling, they are about 9 weeks old, in a 50/50 mix of cactus compost and perlite, which they have been in for several weeks...

They were both fine last night...anyone know what is happening ?
There are no signs of any bugs or mould/fungus.

One of my Obesum seedlings had this happen to its first two leaves, they went thin, kinda see through, then shrivelled up...but it has grown its second set of leaves and seems fine.

Any help or advice is most welcome.

sometimes too much water, plus cool chill will cause this.if your soil is damp let it dry out a bit.

Looks like cool weather/low light to me as well.Kinda normal for this time of year.Some of mine are looking like something the cat dragged in.

I agree with all of the above. They look as if they've been generously watered, which is good after ?? March 1st.

You would be flat on your back amazed how long even the babies can go without water, months!!

OK, grit your teeth, and do not water! Go get a fern or something Hilarious!

Just catching up with everything here...and amusingly, I bought two ferns on the 16th November !

My Adeniums are all doing ok, even if some have lost a few leaves.

Thank you all for your comments.

I used to have wonderful ferns. My fertilizer was about one tablespoon of whole milk in each gallon of water. Nothing else. If you try this, more milk will make fungus and mold, so stick with the one TBSP.
