Description:
The death of these seedling plants was caused by a unique combination of plant growth stage, saturated soil, and high heat causing a rapid death of the below ground portion of the stem and root system. two varieties planted the same time but the one on the left grew faster and was able to survive the sudden oxygen starvation better than the smaller plants of the other variety.
