I have not had any luck avoiding stem rot in the coco pods form the Grobo start. I made sure to take out the wick once the root started coming out. The coco pod got soaked again days later (I thought by the roots, but maybe something else did it).
Right now I have to prop up this poor seedling using a toothpick.
I bought a small fan which will help keep some air on it. Not sure what else to do…this is my third failed seedling in the Grobo start so far.
