I planted a leek from a seedling in Brisbane in February. It was doing really well until this morning when it went from fine to limp and lying on the ground within the space of about half an hour. Any idea what went wrong? When i peeled the leaves back the inside was literally mush. I thought I might’ve over watered but when I dug the plant out the soil was quite dry

Maybe water was caught down between the leaves and it just went rotten.
