Had some fungus gnats In the room I left town but gave them all my typical ph’d water and cal-Mag before I left, but also put about 15 mL of BT in the water as well. Now that I’m back, I notice this one GDP is not too happy, but everything else seems to be flying along just fine. Any ideas? Phosphorous deficiency?
How much Calcium are you giving? Looks like Calcium or Phosphorous deficiency
That’s what I thought too. I actually physically picked it up 10 minutes ago and it’s heavy. I haven’t watered it since Monday night and it’s still holding water. I think I managed to overwater it. 3-5mL/g of cal mag and only Dry happy frog 6-4-4 top dressed in from about 3 weeks ago.
I was wondering about cal mag as well but when I did have gnats I had the same thing happen to a plant so this raises my suspicion.
The gnats put their larva into the soil and cause havock on the roots.
Time to get some food grade DE to cover the top of the soil, don’t water it and put a bunch of yellow stickies up around the base.
Some nematoads in the soil would help before you put the DE on.
Fix the gnat problem asap!
