Why do my seeds germinate and then make no more growth?

Submitted: 02:44PM, 20 Oct 2009
Answer: Seedlings make their initial growth from the energy contained within the seed itself. After that stored energy is used up, the seedling must begin to make its own food. In order for the seedling to function it needs to have access to plant nutrients. Young seedlings can be regularly watered with a soluble fertiliser such as Thrive or Aquasol, at half strength.
