Our potatoes are popping up! Grabbed a few for dinner! Exciting!

2018-03-13 21:13:14 UTC  

@Olivia M#0852 I grew a quarter acre of reds and blues once!

2018-03-13 23:43:49 UTC  

Nice! I’m just amped that I was able to do it in FL of all places

2018-03-14 10:50:31 UTC  

Is the soil not conducive to it down there?

2018-03-14 17:32:01 UTC  

The heat is more so the issue I think. But sweet potatoes do great - they love the heat.

What are you guys growing now? I got blueberry bushes for my birthday!

2018-04-26 02:16:28 UTC  

What kind of climate do you live in?

2018-04-26 02:16:36 UTC  

Zone 7ish.

2018-04-26 02:16:54 UTC  

Ahh im dumb MD

2018-04-26 02:17:17 UTC  

Well, if you have a fence along your property, jasmine is always a great choice

2018-04-26 02:17:19 UTC  


2018-04-26 02:17:51 UTC  

I don’t own it. These are going in large box planters and relocating when we move. We’re hoping to buy a property in the next year.

2018-04-27 19:40:14 UTC  

Does anyone need help planting their garden?

2018-04-27 19:40:54 UTC  

I need tricks for keeping seedlings from wilting over

2018-04-27 19:41:35 UTC  

What kind of plant?

2018-04-27 19:42:22 UTC  

Well cucumber seeds but also growing pine trees. The pine tree seedlings seem to get wilt over quite quickly

2018-04-27 19:46:53 UTC  

I'm not sure about cucumber but you need to grow the pine tree seedlings indoors until they are between 6 and 12 inches tall.

2018-04-27 19:47:25 UTC  

Yea they wilt over after a week of sprouting

2018-04-27 19:47:43 UTC  

I bought a grow light and it worked better

2018-04-27 19:47:55 UTC  

But now they get fried too. Maybe I shouldn’t use the heat matte

2018-04-27 19:48:07 UTC  

The needles get fried

2018-04-27 19:48:46 UTC  

Cinnamon helped with wilt over to an extent

2018-04-27 19:49:37 UTC  

One per pot. Water frequently and make sure your soil pH isn't messed up. You can buy test strips at any garden store.

2018-04-27 19:51:31 UTC  

It has to be very acidic I’m assuming. I have one per a pot. I don’t let them dry out so I don’t think it’s an underwatering issue.
I’ve done this for a couple of years but only managed to get a handful out of hundreds.
I’m thinking maybe I should use a different soil type even though they recommend vermiculite and peatmoss

2018-04-27 19:51:46 UTC  

It should be 5.5 to 7 unless your trees call for something else.

2018-04-27 19:52:02 UTC  

Ah ok

2018-04-27 19:55:11 UTC  

Could it be damping off disease?

2018-04-27 19:55:33 UTC  

Sterilize your equipment and get fresh potting soil if so.

2018-04-27 19:58:17 UTC  

@therealmissesgreen-MD yes that is it, and cinnamon kills the disease. However, even with fresh potting soil and clean containers it seems to happen. The stems choke off near the roots

2018-04-27 19:59:51 UTC  

Boo, sorry! I can never win between leggy seedlings and damping off.

2018-04-28 03:03:21 UTC  

Neutral soil- too much fertilizer will fry the little things.(hopefully you don't use chemicals but...)

2018-04-28 03:03:49 UTC  

Also move the lamps away from your seedlings you could be burning them

2018-04-28 03:04:07 UTC  

Use the hand test- not too hot or too cold

2018-04-28 03:05:51 UTC  

It could be a few things but it's usually the little easy things that get you...

2018-04-28 03:52:29 UTC  

Oh yeah!!! Don't over water and almost more importantly make sure you have a fan circulating air around the seedling and the soil

2018-04-28 03:54:33 UTC  

This will aerate the soil keeping anaerobic bacteria at bay as well as help create a stronger stem

2018-04-28 03:55:21 UTC  

(Don't create a hurricane around the poor bugger but you get the point)
