root rot in pine seedlings !
by umar khan
(islamabad, pakistan , south asia)
So I planted these seeds of pine trees (Pinus roxburghii) around 100 plants. 75 of them grew out okay its been almost a month ..now.. but they have started to rot now.. the small plants feels really really soft .
The plants are being grown in south asia.. where temperature is 97F.. HUMIDITY IS 25 percent .. I've used sand soil and animal waste as fertilizer. I water plants 2 times a day when the soil dries up .. the roots are turning from white to light yellow !
1. what am I doing wrong?
2. what should I do to keep my plants in good health ?..
ps one more thing some of the pants , their soil has a green layer of fungus over them too! .. I mean I've created really good drainage for them too! please help me out in this
and please also tell me for how much time should I keep them in the sun. noting that the sun is really intense !
