This morning my basil seeds had sprouted. They looked happy and strong. In the evening I discovered that the seedlings have bend over and the stems are weak. I don't know what has happened to them?

Photos? It sounds like damping off disease.

This is what they look like now today. I have only given them rain water and no fertilizer.

Oops.. Forgot about this thread. D'Oh! My seedlings quickly recovered again, underwatering was the issue. Hurray!
