Chinese cabbage damping off

Has anyone here had issues with Chinese cabbage damping off this year? I have some seedlings under lights as well as outside in shade, and the weather's been cool enough since I planted.

But none are surviving past infancy. I've never experienced this before. ??

Just realized. Had no luck this spring either, when things were nice. Bad batch of seed?

RE: Chinese cabbage damping off

I don't plant chinese cabbage or cabbage from seed, but I would blame potting mix staying too wet and not enough drainage. I don't start seeds this time of year. My basement is very cool when I start plants in spring. When I have had damping off it was peat that soaked up water and didn't drain.
