In Topic: Deformed leaves...not again!

Wow, I was really thinking an infestation. I won't have the time to order something but there are some better seedling mixes around here, I was just using what I had on hand. I'll get some Fafard tomorrow. I always had good results with that. And I'll look into Maxigrow.

 

Thank you for the info guys. If anyone else has anything to add, please do.

I know they are not over watered. I was suspecting broad mites. I don't feed them anything. They are two weeks old, Jiffy pellets into MG seedling mix. I never add anything until plants are at least 6 inches tall.

 

What do you think I should give them?

I used to separate them as soon as they looked strong enough to handle (usually just after first set of true leaves) but now I just plant a single seed in each tray or Jiffy pod. I hate messing with them when they are small. I have found that if the seeds are good, they'll likely all germinate. I pre soak in mild chamomile tea and toss the floaters. I get about 95% germination.

Thinking the genetic is the only cool thing about this one!

Start another batch up if you can get seeds in the next week or two! You definitely still have time but you'll have a late summer crop. I have been exactly where you are and thought of just giving it up. You'll get the hang of it. Next year, start a little earlier maybe. Every year will be a little better than the last.

 

Happy Growing
