I’m extremely new to gardening and I just planted my watermelon seedlings.. they were doing fine until I transplanted them into a bigger pot.. I have one left that I haven’t transplanted and it has no brown spots, but the other three that I transplanted all got these brown spots and the leaves fell off.. I live in an extremely hot climate and high humidity but I read that watermelons love these conditions.. I suspect it might be burning but it doesn’t make sense that the one I didn’t transplant has no spots even though it’s in the same area. I would appreciate help of any kind.

No Pro here at all, maybe its needs some water, or the leaf got damaged when touching, or watering, maybe not to water on the plant (a thought) posted a photo of mine

This could be caused by a soil fungus which is splashed up from the soil when you watered the plant....
Did you use a soil that was sterilized?

I’m not sure I just bought some bagged soil from our local grocery store.. it’s possible that it isn’t, I’m not really familiar with with which one’s are sterilized. Is this fungus problem treatable? If so, how may I treat it? Thank you so much for the help I’ll try to be more careful next time.
