Hmmmm, does the true leaf growing look healthy? I'm thinking it might need a shot of fertilizer to get it which case the cotyledon will naturally wither away.

RE: seedling cotyledon turning brown

yeah the whole plant looks healthy besides the one cotyledon.. i just gave it 1/4 strenght of fertilizer

RE: seedling cotyledon turning brown
