[Arabidopsis] chlorotic seedlings

Hi all,

We are experiencing a problem with our Arabidopsis seedlings becoming 
chlorotic a few days after being transplanted (at a week after planting) 
from Sunshine mix soil into the same soil supplemented with standard 
nutrient solution.  Some seedlings remain chlorotic and stunted but 
others recover and then look fine.  We've made all new nutrient stocks 
and the problem persists.  We also changed bales of soil. We've been 
growing them this way for years without problems. Any ideas?  Thanks.
