    Default what does damp off look like?

    anyone? anyone?

    ive looked it up at the google image search site, but just found pictures for physan. my recently de-flasked neofinetias have a couple of yellow leaf tips. is that damp off? or is it natural for some parts of the little guys to die while getting acclimated to the real (non-flask) world?

    Damp-off looks like the seedling is going emaciated and withering up, often with brown "deadness" extending from the center of the plantlet outward. (How's that for a scientific expalnation...). Yellow leaf tips in and of themselves are not damp-off. It's completely normal for the seedlings to lose older leaves as they grow their new, "mature" ones under the harsher conditions of the big bad world.
