Help with Lemon Basil

by Larry Moore
(Toledo ohio)





What am I doing wrong? I started from seed and all was going great. Then they started to go yellow and wither. I was watering 15min/day with plan water. I started with nutrients today 3-10. The pics are of my ebb/flow system and plants.
--------------------------
Ed: How long did you grow them with just water? Maybe now you started nutrients, they will perk up? One problem people make is to leave in the germination phase too long. Should be in the main system with nutrients within 2 weeks.
Hope this helps.

Thanks Ed
by: Larry

I had them on just water sense they started in mid Feb. I lost one but the others are looking much better after adding the nutrients. Any other suggestions would be truly appreciated. Like maybe when to cut back growth to promote stronger growth.

Feeding my Basil
by: Larry Moore

I have found that the PH should be 5.5-6.8, no problem there. However I can't find what the PPM should be. I have a meter and it reads 350. Can anyone help?

Correct ppm for basil
by: Anonymous

You need to be stronger than that. By the third leaf set, you should be between 700ppm and 1000ppm. Large plants go up to 1500 or so depending on conditions and cultivars.
