Germinated seed not rising

Posted by saood Saudi - 10b (My Page) on

I did some seeds of tomatoes and pepper. Many seeds germinated. But some of the seeds have shown part stem and part leaf (part of it being inside the soil). The thing then has stop rising above that line - its three days since this status. Has the seedling died before rising?

Is this some disease? Am I watering too much ? or too less?

Also I feel a few seedlings are taking a lot of time opening up their seed leaves.

Is this normal?

RE: Germinated seed not rising


I don't know specifically about tomatoes and peppers but usually when seeds germinate but then seem to be failing shortly afterwards the way you are describing, they have either been over watered or aren't getting enough air circulation and they are succumbing to fungal disease. I can't tell from your pic because it's a bit blurry but what is the white substance on your soil?
