I got  Two  sapling of  thyme , tomato and peppers . I am posting the problems below , please help what is not right as I am a new gardner and I have no idea about anything except trying to garden With a lot of TLC . 


1. Pepper : The leaves started drooping even before I transplanted and has been going worse. THe leaves droop a lot. One sapling I think has died as the leaves have drooped and died but did not fall from the stem.  

The second sapling was a little stronger as new leaves were sprouting at the top of the sapling. But now I see the leaves are partially turning yellow .


2. Thyme : Again one sapling sied out turned brown and dried . Is it any way to revive it. I read online and thought i was over watering it so I stopped it and now the second sapling also started looking a little faint. 


3. Tomato : 

    This thankfully is surving well but I am seeing a little white leaves . Is it normal  ? 


I have pictures of the plant as well but dont know how to attached as its asking for URL ?

Without a photo it is difficult to visualize. However it does seems to be problem with overwatering for your pepper plants. See if the media is wet and soggy, if so do not water for few days and keep in hot sun until it dries out and then start watering. Thyme i suspect is could be because of damping off. It is again caused by fungus and excessive moisture..Unfortunately once the plant died of damping off there is no way to revive it.
