I did tell you about the fifth leaf right? THERE IS ANOTHER ONE!!!! SIXTH AM SO HAPPY!
Yeah... nutes too high does way more damage than nutes too low. Best to err on the low side.
Glad your plants are doing better!
Me being me, I didn't listen to what you said about the EC being high. Well thats me....
I noticed good change! the plants actually can stand strongly and the leaves are bigger and there is now a fifth leaf!!!! I'm so happy!!
and there was this one pak choi that seems to be dying but now it's alive
I think "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" could be applied to this problem. I don't think they are hatching in the caulis, I think they only eat the leaves
BUT STILL!! I hate them. I will keep this thread updated
see you in few days, or hours if something goes wrong...
Yeah, if I have to pick tomatoes not-ripe, I put them in a brown paper bag to ripen. Preferably with a not-ripe banana to speed things up. Our supermarkets have brown paper bags, though most people choose plastic bags these days.
The caterpillars are probably hatching on the cauliflower. They ate my last pak choi and mustard greens crop.
Yes they are caterpillars and they are annoying...... Comes and go. I kill them tomorrow there is more...
Cute little pak choi!
Are you ripening the tomatoes in a brown paper bag? I just cooked the last of my summer tomatoes from their brown bag this weekend.
What Peat said. 2.0 EC is definitely too high for baby brassicas. I wouldn't allow the EC above 1.7 ever for greens, and possibly only 0.8 for another week yet.
Are there caterpillars on your cauliflower somehow? Or the "little white bugs"? The damage looks a lot like caterpillars. But it doesn't greatly matter if there are holes in the leaves, so long as the head is still OK. In this picture, it looks it.
"I wouldn't put hydroton on top of the rockwool, though - only around the sides."
ahhhh, I'll do that next time!
yesterday I took of my tomatoes because they were dying. collected around 15 tomatoes...................... but they arent even red, I guess thats 0 harvest
Anyway... I just had an awesome expirience! Peat said to change the ph to around 7 so I tried and I put too much... then I panicked! put lots of water and then I cant see any changes so I gave up and try to put the EC to 2.00 because It went down to 1.44. So I did it went to 2.01 then I looked at the ph and it turned 7!!!
now the ph is 7 and ec at 2.00
My Pak Choi!
My Cauli! damn insects..... Eating him alive... I'm wondering where I could buy BT spray
What can I do to kill all those insects?
This is what the dying leaves look like, are they supposed to die? The 2 big leaves arent dying.
Yes, the rockwool stays forever (it isn't reusable, with the roots shot through). I wouldn't put hydroton on top of the rockwool, though - only around the sides.
