Hi, in growing pot cucumbers and I have pregrown them together in these small pots and was going to plant them separately in larger pots but one morning they all looked like this (picture). They were looking good the night before and I don't know what has happened or if I can save them? I would be grateful for any tips.

They appear to be way too wet right at the moment. At least that is what I think that I am seeing.

Its a fungal disease caused by too wet, too cold conditions. Your cucumbers will not recover.

And the temperatures. The lowest temperature they can handle is about 16c (for short periods) but will be happier at least 21 - 22c.
