Original Message some ideas
this is just a guess, but i was reading
that sometimes if the plants are too wet
early on they will get a fungal
infection, esp after the first set of
leaves and before the second set of
leaves have been set. some plants more
susceptable than others, recommend that
we allow the plants to get drier, rather
than wet. also the florescent lights may
not be the correct light, and hence the
shoots are long, leggy, and the distance
from the nodes(first set of leaves to
second set of leaves) weakens the plant,
they fall or limp closer to ground, and
wal lah, the fungus gets the plant, at
least that is what i am trying to avoid,
have had the same thing happen too.
