Things learnt / Planting tips
    #4391360 - 07/11/05 03:25 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

just to make a post the things that you have learnt by growing plants. for the noobs.

1. don't over water, if the top of the soil in the pot is still damp the watering can wait, doesn't matter what a tek on the plant says even if they tell you that your plant needs to be wet all the time,
water is a great way to get disease in the root system, causing the leaves to fall off and other things aswell. thus need a fungicide or the likes of.

2. when transfering into a bigger pot don't drown the plant in soil, make sure that the soil is about 1cm or so above the original potting height.

3. plants can survive cold snaps just as long as no frost gets to them. salvia is still going, in about 6 degrees c - 21 degrees, and low humidity, looks a bit brown and some of the leaf is gone but soon as spring comes around it will be cracking again.

4. planting from seeds don't leave out in sun keep them in a shaded area so the seedlings don't burn and die.

there is heaps more but would like to hear others input too.

maybe we can make a faq or something at the end...

yup should be right, just keep watering it and sit it in a saucer of water, should be fine. but if it gets colder at night put it in a humidity dome or top cut off coke bottle and turned upside down.

Don't overfert, give them ferts if the color of the leaves gets pale. If the color is good and they are growing well, leave them alone for a while.

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.” (attributed to Alexis de Tocqueville political philosopher Circa 1835)

yup if you over fert you can burn the plants or cause abnormal growth, the plant freaks out, causing the nodes to grow closer and alot more of them.

Listen to your plants. Soil mixtures seem to love coco coir at 20-50% mixed into poting soil for better air flow. If growing setup a mist system if possible. The leaves love this in general for all plants. Also make sure the roots get water every few days. The mist is good for humidity, high heat and overall plant health.

Be sensitive to plant environmental change. Try to control variables such as in a science experiment. For instance, someone ships you a plant, then don't repot it as it needs to adapt to the environment first.
