Oh...no, the babies don't look good!

Beaumont, TX(Zone 9a)

These were sown from seeds of my Nelly Moser. I've never had sown seeds before so I'm pleasantly surprised by them germinating and growing.
As you can see, at least 3 seedlings have wilted but one is growing pretty well.
They are on the front porch and get some direct light. The soil is damp. Is this wilt?

Looks like they want to be in some real dirt to me. Can you plant them in the garden?

Also, let them get almost dry before watering again. A little light fertilizing to the roots would also give them some oomph.
Omoshiro first bloom this season.

I hope your plants are ok now. I want to see the photos when they bloom!

There is new growth on them!!!! They're alive!!!
Should I just add more soil or try to put them in individual container? I hate to plant them in ground now; it is way to hot here - yesterday 91 degree.

Hi Inthegarden,

You peaked my curiosity, so in my reading I started looking at the seed starting subject. Here's is a local to me, group that has a downloadable seed starting file.
