Why do my cucumber seedlings keep withering and dieing? All other seedlings in the same soil are doing fine.

Answer: Dear Riley,
I am sure that you are keeping your seedlings well watered, but be careful not to overwater or you may encourage fungal diseases and rotting will occur.

Cucumbers can be attacked by a number of pests, two of them being white fly and two spotted mite. Check underneath the leaves to see if either of these pest are present. Nature’s Way Insect & Mite Killer Natrasoap will control both of these pests.
