Seedings shriveling and drying up still remaining green – what’s causing it?

Posted by: aaa_janitor In: Backyard Putting Greens

I started a bunch of flowers from seed recently. When they were about 2" high and it was warm enough, I put them outside during the day. (They were basil and Johnny jump up seedlings, I think. Outdoor temp was 65ish).

Now most of them are starting to shrivel and get "crispy". They are not turning brown, not even when they are dry and crumbly, and the leaves are not spotty or brown nor do they have any holes in them. I am assuming they’re dead or dying.

It reminds me of when I dry mature basil leaves for cooking use – the leaves get all crumbly, but they stay the same bright green color they were when they were alive.

What is causing this, and what can I do to stop more from dying?
