What causes stem rot or root rot?

6 years ago

Half of my "rooted" stems from Thailand and a few others got stem rot, before I believe they were rooted. I got hooked late in the season & am in Central FL, so they got put in pots in October. We had a cold snap, but not freezing, but a bunch of rain last month, so I brought them inside before it down poured. It's been a couple weeks and watered them a bit last Sunday.

I've chopped away trying to save the tops, but they aren't very big. It just seemed to happen all of a sudden. I know moving them was a shock. Got them under 60 watt lights and reflective under mat. I will have survivors, but wondering what is the cause?!?!?

BTW, my seedlings are doing great & will update soon.
