I surely don't have all the answers but when I 'transplanted' some of my baby runners (off of the mother plants) I don't think I got enough of the roots and all of the leaves turned brown and shriveled also. Only a few of them died so I'm thinking it was a lack of root system that did it. Doubt if it was a bug or disease problem because all of them would have been affected. (at least for mine)
Did you start with new plants or transplants? And maybe you planted them too deep. ?? Don't give up - they're so worth the work!
