Strange Discolouration on Zinnia Seedlings

Hi all I noticed this strange look on my seedlings. The plants look healthy and seem to be growing fine but I was just wondering if I should be worried about it.

    I thought it looked healthy too, its just those weird dark blotches, they look sort of transparent close up.

    I recommend only watering seedlings from the bottom as drops of water on the leaves is a route in for fungal infections (not saying that is what this is, but..) image

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    I'll keep an eye on them and see how they grow image

    I grew this seed last year from the same packet and had wonderful plants all Summer.

    Looked at them today and now they look normal :P


    I think it was the water drops from the roof of the greenhouse.
