We sow some seeds last week Wednesday and they started popping on Sunday Morning and on Tuesday the germinated seedlings were standing upright and some have heads/ top cut off and it looked like they were cut or eaten by some kind of a worm or caterpillar or perhaps an unknown
And I notice that feeding on the seedling tops is variety difference...because only the tomato and pepper seedlings that have this problem and not the eggplant seedlings.
I googled to find out what was it but was unable to get any information on germinated seedling problems except damping off.
Does anyone have this problem? Were you able to identify it?
Would appreciate any information you have on this problem.
my suggestion is that the damage is caused by either molluscs (slugs or snails) or some form of cutworm. Take a look at the seedings at dusk or soon after, the culprit is likely to be obvious then. after that you will be better able to determine what to do.
