Well, this is, of course, stuff you should have looked up beforehand.

BUT . . . medium fine sand is a good medium for a seedling to sprout in. I didn't notice where you were from, but if in the northern hemisphere this is a rather odd time to be sprouting seeds. They'll have to be kept inside, kept warm (bottom heat is best) and have plenty of light (fluorescent or sunlight) and good air flow over them. Don't over water. First fertilizer in a week - very dilute.

The maples may be done for if they have a fungus. Keep them away from the other seedlings.

I would imagine that in Orange county California you could just plant them out at this point. You guys don't really get a "Winter" down there do you?

The reason rooting hormone might help with fungal issues is that some rooting powders contain an antifungal, Rootone does for instance. Clever trick, never thought of that.
