It’s dropping down to 40F at night. Do I have to worry about my seedlings? They are maybe 2-inches high n 1-1 1/2 inch leaf span. Is there anything I can/should do?
Put a bag over them before night time. Allow it to gain some heat naturally from the sunlight. Rinse and repeat as necessary.
I had my power turned off during the hard Texas freeze for 70 hrs 9 mins and she developed some fox tails.
Can you improvise a small greenhouse?
What are foxtails?
I wasn’t even sure if temps bc above 32f are something to worry about
I wouldn’t worry about mature plants, but seedlings are still a little fragile.
I have to worry about spring freezing and frost and have an inexpensive pop up greenhouse I use for a few weeks which is why I thought about suggesting it. It seems to help build heat and raise humidity during the day as well.
@Odaharry The fotxtails is circled in the red.
The plant kept producing buds off of the main cola.
@Myfriendis410 Can you explain Foxtail please? This is the first time I have had any and its outside my wheel house.
Is that a bad thing? Seems like u just got extra buds!
Some flower structure, if you tease it apart, is almost all “foxtails”. In the normal use though; high intensity lights will contribute to the plant throwing foxtails. Sometimes not a bad thing and sometimes it is. Your plant is still covered in fresh calyxes so I’d let her go for a while longer.
Here’s an example of a classic foxtail:
Growers usually clip that off which will stop it’s progression.
Got any 1 gal. plastic milk or water bottles? cut them and place over the seedling, I’ve used this for
young tomato plants for years & it works great.
