Hello! Im new here!  I mainly joined because Im having a in issue with my baby peyotes( and to learn). They are only a few months old now. I hardened them off from the humidity and they dont look so good.  Basically...are they doomed/dead?  Any help would be so GREATLY appreciated! Thanks

Might need less intense sun, maybe sunburned.

Hope they get better soon.  Tell us more about them.  Are they close to other possibly infected plants?  Soil composition, watering routine, light exposure etc.

 

p.s.Love the little Lophophora's, and you are welcome also.  Hope you stick around.

Well, They are about 3 months old. I had them in a closed container until I was sure all of them( that were going to) germinated. After that I slowly opened the container and let them dry out.  Every so often when the soil is dry I mist them.    The soil is miracle grow cactus mix. and they are under a fluorescent grow light about 12hrs a day. They did have a bout of fungus gnats but I havnt seen any since the soil has dried.

They are still a bit young and small to be able to store much in the way of water reserves, so I wouldn't leave them dry for too many days.

Lighting sounds ok.

Fungus gnats are yucky.  I would repot the green ones away from the others, don't want gnat grubs infecting others.

I often leave mine bagged for four months so that is not the problem.

They actually look fine on the picture IMO

 

Perhaps they have been adjusting to the change in humidity

Possibly combined with increased light intensity with the lid gone?

All this may slow growth a little in favour of toughness.

 

Only thing i'd beware of is the ones laying sideways on moist soil

If the top rots and crusts they may take forever to recover at this age

Good advice so far. 

They look pretty good to me too. ;) A couple of them are mildly sunburned (as pointed out). 

 

You can top-dress the substrate with some fine sand to help control the gnats. They're after the organics in the soil. A layer of inert material will eventually discourage them.
