Q.Seedling Transplant Shock

Anonymous added on April 20, 2011 | Answered

I have about 15 organic tomato seedlings that I started from seed. I moved them from the peat moss starter tray and into small soil pots (actually, half water bottles with a hole cut in the bottom for drainage). They have been struggling since I transplanted them, almost like they’re sort of giving it a shot but they can give up at any moment. I bought a 2-oz. container of Schultz’s ‘Take Root’ rooting hormone. Would this help or hurt them? Is there something I can do to improve their outlook? I’ve been growing from seed for the past few years, but this year’s batch doesn’t seem too happy.
