I'm love lies bleeding plants from seeds and they have grown to be about an inch. I don't know if I planted them right but they have grown quite well. However, the leaves of my little plants are falling and or being eaten and I don't know how to prevent that. I have also seen bites on the leaves. A lot of them are dying as well and I really want them to grow. Please help!! Thank you!

    It looks like your seedlings are excessively wet and have developed mold and fungus issues.

    Make sure you use a light mix made for growing seeds.
    The containers need to drain and the seedling will need bright light and some air circulation.
