Hello,

I am from Pune and been growing herbs and vegetables in my kitchen garden. I have been facing big problem of root rot after germination of seeds...

Fenugreek - only 5% survive

Palak - 20% survive

Onion & Radish - 40% survive

I am using CocoPeat + Vermi Compost in 1:1. Please guide for solution.

gunjan
the main problem is excessive moisture and not enough ventilation. Does your container have drainage holes? WHen you sow seeds in the mix, before you sow seeds. Moisten the mix and squeeze out most of the water with your hands. Very little moisture is enough for seed starting. Also cover the tray/container with polythene.

Thanks...it does have a drainage hole....I will try sowing again based on your instructions....

But this does not look like root rot/bacteria right?
