I've been growing seedlings all winter and have lost MANY. Now, before I lose my best plants I'm hoping to find the cause. Here are some examples of what I'm dealing with. All have been treated with Neem spray 2x with no improvement. None have had any fertilizer and have been watered as needed. The holey leaves make me think nutrition but the dry leaf tips baffle me. That is a Dixie Sun seedling planted in November. All of the other plants affected are Cheyenne Spirit from September. These pictures are not as sharp as they should be so if they aren't share enough then I'll do them over.

There's a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

I am of no help.


Karen posted a picture of her seedlings in another thread. Part of my reply was that if I plant coneflower seedlings too early, they will probably die.

I have determined that I have 2 problems. First is a tiny bug under the leaves on one plant which I am using Neem oil on and secondly I may have a pH issue. Both are treatable. I bought a pH meter and will be adjusting the pH level after I determine what the pH is. I will update in a week or more.

How are your plants now? What was the issue back then? Plants are pliable to attacks from assorted mite pests and insects. Bugs on plants are very capable of causing wide-ranging damage to the health and appearance of the plant. Try some DIY techniques. If those do not work, consult the professionals like exterminator NJ to come and inspect the situation and give you the best possible solution.
