Persimmon seedlings dying
« on: June 13, 2018, 04:06:05 PM »
These persimmon seedlings are a few months old now.  They're beginning to die off, with leaves turning brown and it looks like the stems are turning black, beginning at ground level and traveling upward.  Is this a simple case of damping off from over-watering?  The soil in these pots is sandy, so that doesn't seem likely.








Many thanks!

Possible sign of dampening, I had some seedling that die of similar result. From reading not much can be done of the effected plant. Keep it away from others as to not infect them also.

This is mainly due to too much water and moisture, not dry off fast enough. This allow bacteria to thrive.

Leaf in the first picture on the left actually looks crunchy(dry) maybe it's getting to much sun? Might benefit from some shade
