Hi Laurie - can you please clarify what exactly your question is? Also, please upload a picture of the plant, otherwise it will be close to impossible to help.

Now I did start the seeds in peat moss. This is something I don't usually do. I have used peat pellets before but most I us potting soil.

Did you apply foliar fertilizer? Alternatively, please check if aphids/or other insect(s) are on the inside of the curling leaf.

I would guess its an issue with having "wet feet" and not enough air circulation.
also the medium you used could have a virus in it.
i would also recommend using distilled water.
snip off the grey edges with scissors and repot with different medium keep out of harsh lights for a couple of days until it looks like its ready to get going again.
hope this helps.
