What is happening to my seedlings?

Question from a fellow grower:

I planted two that worked from the first batch which is in the third picture and as we look at the new seeds you can see that they germinated. Then they got about half an inch high and then the top two leaves fell off.

What am I doing wrong?

I’ve seen that before and it was slugs eating the top leaves. That soil is super wet as well which will encourage them


Definitely insects. Best to cover them up or bring them in at night.

The soil is far too wet. They should get no more than 1 milliliter of water a day at this point.
