Thanks all for help yesterday. I am pretty sure that I have damp rot due to your advice. Is jeyes fluid ok to disinfect my propagator pots before I start all over again with my seeds in my propogator.I do not want to give up.



Yep, Jeyes fluid is perfect for cleaning, well done. Good luck on starting over . Remember to only lightly dampen the soil on which the seeds are growing and don't water again til the soil dries out. :-)

I think you have damping off disease which is Pythium Debaryanum, use Cheshunt compound solution.Don't wash your pots in Jeyes Fluid in your propogator, the fumes will be to strong for your plants when they germinate. Wash them up in Dettox.
