It’s time to start feeding our seedlings with the Wilco feed at double the strength recommended on the packet. Double strength is 4ml per litre.
As I mention a week or two ago, plants grown hydroponically should receive twice the strength of nutrients than we would give to soil grown plants. Don’t forget to adjust the pH.
Keep an eye on the new growth at the growing tip – this will reflect the the amount of nutrients the plant is receiving.
If after a week or so, the new growth is pale green, increase the nutrient strength. If dark green, try reducing the nutrient strength slightly.
A grower from Holland once told me that plants speak to us through their leaves – albeit with a slight delay! If we can understand what the plant is saying and respond correctly, we’ll have a happy plant and a happy grower too!
