Default Re: How to stop root rot?

It actually sounds like they are damping off. Sprinkle some powdered cinnamon on them as they sprout. Also, the perlite works well for drainage, but I don't think that's the problem. Do they turn brown at the base of the seedling and then constrict? If so, that is damping off.
