My adenium seedlings are dying. Please help??

My 1 month old adenium seedlings are rotting.I have already lost two and this is my third seedling that is rotting. They looked healthy and was growing good before it started to rot all of a sudden starting from its leaves. I have 7 more seedlings in the same pot that I don't want to lose. This is the first time I'm growing adenium from seeds and I really don't know what to do about it.

The weather was very sunny all these days(I live in zone 10a) but now it has started to rain and my balcony isn't receiving much sunlight as before. Could it be the reason? I water it normally each day. Should I reduce watering it? I'm afraid if they would dry out. I am also afraid if its some kind of infestation. Is there anything that I could do to save the remaining seedlings?

seedlings like that should not be outdoors ... there is no way to control water and humidity ...

can we see you setup???

i have never grown those.. but i would have seedlings that size in a humidity dome.. in bright light.. but NEVER sun ... you have no scale there.. but i am presuming that it is under 1 inch???
