I agree Boo. Heat stress is what I see. Might need more water too.



what stumps me is if it is heat related , why are the other plants ok?

why wouldn’t more plants show the same symptoms?

anyway , I will nurse the sick one along for the sake of science…I want to examine the rootball and take a couple of soil samples for Ph

but yeah , heat and an out of whack Ph will definitely cause nute lockout

Yeah Big that is a good question. All my tomato plants are doing the same thing due to the temps here in Texas. But they are all doing it not just a few. The only one not doing it is in more shade beside my house.

Big,
1. do you ever have to cut the strings on that net to let the plants push thru when they start getting taller?

2. How far above that net will they get?

3. How far is the net above the ground?
😊

thanks for the Kind words ya all


1. no….I just raise it or lower it or wiggle it around to make everything fit..they have 6” inch squares which is plenty enough room to maneuver them around s nothing is in a bind

2. that is strain dependent….some of the plants are about 6’ foot tall now while others are still around 4’ foot….so yeah , some will still stretch and I am guessing some will be 3’ to 5’ feet above the existing netting……if most of the plants get that tall , like 3-5 feet above existing net , I may put another layer in there ……just depends on how heavy and floppy the colas get , that will determine more netting or even some 6-8’ foot stakes

3. right now about 4’ foot…….those t-posts with the white tops are 8’ posts driven into the ground a foot or two

This carnivorous plant that eats flies is called Venus Flytrap. The botanists that named it saw the flytrap and realized it looked like a vagina, which is why they added Venus (The Greek goddess of love and sex) to its name.

The plant is oval-shaped, has hair-like cilia, a pink interior, and secretes mucilage, which is essentially plant lube. Add in the fact that it has mashed-up bugs inside, and huge spiky ******* teeth, and we have to wonder if it didn't have some woman issues in his life. It's so angry!
