I have planted some Cyprus papyrus seeds, which germinated a good few weeks ago but now the seedlings seem to have stalled. I have kept them in starter pots in fairly moist houseplant potting mix. if left to dry a bit they tend to collapse.
Are they just really slow growers or am I doing something wrong?

Hi Jersey,

" ...if left to dry a bit they tend to collapse.

I have no experience with Cyprus papyrus, but if those were zinnia seedlings those photos indicate a Damping Off infection, and that would be fatal to them. Hopefully the Internet can provide information for you. Explore these links for more information about Damping Off disease of seedlings.

It does look like damp off to me too.
