The Root

One gardener’s quest to get to the bottom of it all.

Bacterial, Fungal, or Animal? May 8, 2008

I thought I’d appeal to any readers out there: Do you recognize this as an ailment? It showed up on one of my sweet pepper seedlings yesterday. Did I really jinx myself by touting my old potting soil? Or are they just getting tired of their peat pots? Or am I expecting perfection where realism’s the word? Help!

    Oh dear. I haven’t a clue but I hope someone more knowledgeable comes along soon. Not terribly helpful, was it?

  2. Amy Says:

    It is outside? I might be sun damage and/or transplant shock if so. I have more then a few leaves that look similar.

    🙂 No worries, Mrs Be, brought a smile to my face!

    Hi, Amy. Hmm, my mom thought it might be sun damage, as well. I didn’t know this could happen…thought things always turned darker when burned. So naive. 🙂

    i don’t know either, but it looks similar to some seedlings i put outside too soon, for too long. i was never sure if it was the sun, or the cool temperatures.

  5. I think definitely sun burn. No biggy!

    That definetly looks like sunburn. It will get brown after a while and this leave will be lost.
