HELP! Has this greenhouse doomed my seedlings?!

Hi all,

I bought some new seeds and planted in little pots as per usual, in preparation for my second outdoor grow. I'm using the same potting mix and daily watering I used on my first grow last year.

I started my grow and everything was going OK. I saw a greenhouse box for seedlings at my local nursery and thought it could only make things better.

But no. Things kept growing for the first few days, but then one night when coming home from work, I cam home to find that my seedling were near death!

I only left one out of the greenhouse, and it seems to be doing OK.

So I THINK it's the greenhouse? Maybe it cooked them too much? Or maybe with the greenhouse I didn't need to water them as much as last time and have accidentally overwatered?

Anyone have any thoughts?

More importantly, I am trying to save them. I left them out of the greenhouse last night and am now putting them out in the sun without the green house.

I have included some links to my pics to show you. The one in the big red pot is the one that didn't go in the greenhouse. All other pics show the ones that are dying. There's also a pic of the greenhouse itself.

Is there anything I can do to help revive these little guys?!!!

Any help is VERY much appreciated!


Cheers,

They were out in the sun? Yes they look heat stressed but many of them may still survive if kept in ideal conditions.

Yes... I put the greenhouse out in the sun the other day. Are greenhouses like that not meant to go in the sun? Sorry, I'm a bit of a noob!


They're out in full sunlight right now (but not in greenhouse) and will be for another few hours. I am drip watering them every hour or so if the surface of the little pots are dry.

Is this the best way to save them? Or should I have them in partial sunlight?


Thanks Jellyman
