Transplanted my basil seedlings 3 weeks ago. They sprouted up to 8 inches in this period, and then suddenly yesterday they started to wilt. No signs of disease, no change in color, soil ph is 7.2, moisture level is 8 - what shall I do?

They may be damping off (which is caused by a fungus) or root rot if they were over watered. Make sure the drainage is good and add some fungicide to the soil to keep off the fungus.
