I grew these Dwarf Munstead Lavender plants from seeds and now they are 3 and half moths old. Room temperature is moderate between 15-20 degree celsius. I water when I see the soil is dry. I usually mist my plants & soil both with Neem oil & dish soap mixed in water once a week. They all are under grow light 12 hours a day.

I am trying to figure out what causes my lavender plants do wilting, I treat all of them equally but only 3-4 plants are doing well and others are not.

Top Lavender leaves are turning soft, silvery & then dies out completely. I already lost 8 lavender plants same way. Can anybody help me what should I do to save them?

I would appreciate a lot if someone can help me out.

Thank you very much for look into this.

That potting soil seems far too wet. Do you water when the top looks dry? If so you might be over watering because deeper down there's still moisture

Lavender Plants grow best in well-drained, slightly alkaline soil with a pH between 6.7 and 7.3. You have an acidic water holding potting mix and you are keeping the soil a little too wet.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
