My seedlings have fuzzy stems!! I think I may have over watered them… is there any hope to be had??
They’re both autos in coco with plain water. One is white widow and the other is psycho
Certainly looks like root hairs to me?
don’t let picture confuse you just an example of how they look
Wow @Donaldj I think you called it there. Impressive!
@Donaldj, I learned something! Thanks
Yep. I even did some research from other posts. Look up fuzzy roots.
So in this case will be fine to put a small amount of soil around that baby @Donaldj?
@Donaldj But, after looking back, the other posts DIDN’T show pictures. Not near as good as this one. That’s natural. Someones idea of fuzzy may be totally different.
Had you covered
a little rude @M4ur all advise is educated guesses we can’t always get it right
So it’s not a defect I caused?! Whew!! I will add a bit of soil (coco)
keep tops moist see if you can’t gently remove shell if they look fairly stuck on
@GreenThunder, Sorry dude… or dudette. I screwed up.
I’ll do that but first a break to ensure a steady hand
Thanks again for your help. That bit from Wikipedia puts my mind at ease.
All good usually that part of the roots are hidden underground if planted too close to surface rather than root pushing down it pushes everything up. The process usually results in shell coming off as root pushes down and stem up
No worries I’m generally open to any ideas and suggestions and will pick and choose what makes sense to me… and I always research before taking action.
don’t take offence I deleted your suggestion didn’t want to confuse anyone and my example picture is actually a radish
Was that the hydrogen peroxide suggestion? I saw that earlier and actually had that same thought… but would have asked for advice before doing that. Well, I did ask
