I am new to this forum, I have bald cypress seedlings that I harvest from a nearby pond that will get weedwacked down. My problem is they are always dying on me. I started with bare root and kept roots wet, and panted in sandy soil with peat moss and keep it moist. within a day or two the tops curl and the whole plant dries up. Where I got them from is pond edge and moist soil in full sun. I tried to keep it exactly like where they were. The tap root breaks sometimes or a lot and maybe that is the problem? I live in Florida. I have tried lately to get more of the ball of soil around the seedling, but they seem to keep dying. Any thoughts.
