La Piccola Maria












One of 4 seeds that Maria the plant lady gave me from the 2011 bloom of the Cat's Eye plants is taking shape.  Pole beans planted last Sunday.

Administering low doses of iron and sulfur to the blueberry bush.  Keeping an eye on this view to monitor the situation.












Fed the pitcher plant today...some organic fertilizer.  Time for another salad tomorrow.  90,109,71,0,W,0

Man, you got a lot of plants there. It's really starting to look like a greenhouse there. You warned us it would come to this.

I think blueberries like coffee grounds.

If there was an award for chlorosis that might be the winner, also possibility it's viral.It looks like iron deficiency as it is outer leaves, manganese or zinc start on older (inner) leaves.Bigger pot might help also. Around 5 on the other
thing.The more acidic the harder for iron to be absorbed. 5.0-6.5 is optimum but blueberries like it acidic in the 4-5 range

Chlorosis in blueberries (and other acid loving / low pH plants) can be addressed by lowering pH OR supplying more iron in an easily absorbed form. Sequestrene is the iron equivalent for plants of Geritol for humans.

It's yellow, dissolves in water like Miracle grow. Water in. Plants green up very quickly.
