About two weeks ago I planted a seed from a lemon and it sprouted. I read somewhere that the sprout needs a lot of water as it grows so I try to check it every day. A few days ago I noticed the leaves had curled up. Now it looks like the part of the stalk directly under the leaves is thinner than the rest of the stalk and a little bit brown. I have it planted in a plastic cup.
Should I Worry About Curled Leaves?

Lemon tree seedlings need to be in a warm location with plenty of direct sunlight. The soil should be moist but not too damp/soggy. Is it possible you over-watered? If you watered it everyday that was probably too much.

Thank you. Do you think it'll be able to get past this or did I kill it?
