Buried the seeds 2 weeks ago with a new opened MG seed starting mix and new opened bag of perlite, mixed equal parts. Within 7 days 2 sprouted and today I got suspicious because none followed. All the other seeds have little holes in them and the ones which weren't totally hollow yet, had 2 or 3 tiny skinny translucent worms in them. In the picture you can see the worm and another in the seed.
Now what happened? Were they in the soil and went in the seeds? That's what I'm thinking and I'm quite angry because those were valuable seeds.
