A question from a fellow grower:
I just started flowering my blueberry seeds and I have some questions I was hoping you’d be able to answer. I’m attaching some photos of the plant, and as you can see, the pistils and calyxes are growing fine on top. Also as you can see, the bottom leaves are dying. I trimmed the lowest leaves before my last repotting and topped the plant to get a higher yield from my colas. I don’t know what to do about these bottom leaves. I gave the plant food yesterday, and am hoping the leaves will bounce back with the proper nutrients. If they don’t, though, what should I do? Should I clip them? I know it’s bad to trim during flowering, but I don’t want the plant to be trying to support a dying part of the plant.
