SOS Lupins look like the are dying

Lupins

I have sown some lupins about five weeks ago and all is well or should i say all was well until about a week ago when I noticed they were turning light green and now some are dying off.

 

I have no mound on them. So I was just wondering if it’s too cold for the young seedlings at night they are or I thought they were sheltered from the wind and are not sat in hot sun in the day.

I have some peppers (seedlings) in the same location, these where just a test to see if my own collected seeds from a orange pepper would germinate and guess what everyone germinated these seedlings are in really good health so what is killing my Lupins ??

    What compost are they in?   Is it free-draining or a bit boggy. How big are they?  Have they been pricked out/potted on yet? 

    Are they too wet and are damping off?  If the conditions are cooler they probably need to be a bit dryer.

  • They were all put in their own pots small one with seeding compost I added some sand to the John innings, most of the seedlings are about 11/2" tall and have two adult leaves on. I think I will move them to the unheated conservatory what do you think Dove

    I can take a photo and post it if you wish

    Do their little stems look a bit pinched near to the compost?

    A photo or two might be helpful.
