Help with canoeing leaves on seedlings

@MidwestGuy
I tried a direct to you but came out as regular post…is that a privilege I haven’t been granted yet?
Thanks

80 degrees is fine. Inside grow I would get a little concerned any time above 84 but that’s just me.
Good luck

Greetings…
Well it’s transplant day…
Pics to follow!

I have 8x GG in solo cups, going into 3 gal fabric pots…
Using FFOF in a 70/30 mixture with roots organic soiless mix…Fluff the FFOF…
I add dolomite lime, DE earth and azomite, about 3 cups of each…

To be continued (shortly)

Greetings…
Transplant Day!
I start with my dirt well mixed

I place an empty nursery cup into the center of the pot buried about the depth I’m placing my babies…


Then I drench with 2-3x the volume of the pot with 6.5 water until well saturated…

Then I slowly with like a 1/4 twist remove the empty cup leaving a perfect sized hole…

I Gently! squeeze the sides of the cups holding my seedlings…place the stem between my fingers and invert the cup…

The transplanted babies fit perfectly in the hole with minimal stress…

Hope this will help someone…:thinking:

I also make a small mound around the base of the stem leaving a small furrow around the edge…

The first several times I water I pour it slowly into that furrow so as not to drown the babies and it helps to spread out the roots searching for water…

YIPPEE…
All my babies in their forever home…


I add a layer of Hydroton rocks to act as mulch .
It keeps the soil moist and avoids compacting the soil from top-watering.

Oh Sh#t…!!!
What I thought was heat stress turned out to be Broad Mites …damn damn :persevere:
I removed all the infected leaves and then sprayed Azamax…
I’ll reapply Azamax in 3-4 days…

Does anyone have any suggestions to get rid of the infestation???.

I believe they were in the soil, the last couple bags of FFOF had gnats…
