Hi GG, I googled around and now have some understanding of N:P:K

http://zuari.in/products/produ.....px?Cat=100

This should give others an idea. I believe the only problem now remains is finding which ratio NPK is good for which plant and then you may have to buy multiple bottles of NPK with different ratios. Also I believe the nursuries and fertilizer shops sell it in lose. In that case 40-50 gms of each should be enough. 

 

GG, any website or source where we could find a chart which NPK ratio is good for which plant?

snorkel4u,

Its a very difficult question to answer actually. There are scattered resource in the web and it depends on the weather conditions also. To be very honest, NPK by itself is not enough, plants need N,P,K, Ca,Mg, S, Mo, Bo, Cu, Zn, Mn, Fe. So one needs to provide all this for all the plants.

To make it easy for you, think of it this way..

high nitrogen for leafy veggies
high potassium for fruiting veggies.

for a fruiting plant, you start with something like 19-19-19 @1g/l . at flowering stage you move to a high potassium fertilizer smoe 5-15-30.. these are not the exact requirements but this is what govt has regulated.

hope this helps
gg

hi there friends,

 

I'm back after a brief vacation

 

I want some good advice regarding two of my new members.

 

i have grown  a brinjal plant and an okra in container

 

but my problem is, even though the brinjal plant id big enough, but no flower is coming out off lately, again when some flowers bloom, they usually  fall down, without any fruit.

 

i'm using asper the advice of GG NPK 19/19/19 once in a week, the  potting soil is  50 percent coco peat with 50 percent  compost.

 

asfor okra, the plant has got some strange  curly leaves.

 

i will be posting the pics soon

 

any suggestion  will be appreciated

 

thanks in adv

I believe egg plant has male and female flowers just give it some time the male are I think the ones that appear early, these flowers fall off in a while you'll find female flowers it will have a bulge at the base which develops into the vegetable :

not a scientific explanation just my observation I got a very good yield this year but it took the plants quite a few months to yield, gardening is an exercise in patience 🙂

It is very sad after all the efforts the plants are affected. I had leaf curl in my chilly plants. Some website suggests uprooting the plant and distroy.but I just pluck all curled leaves and trim some branches. New growth is OK.but still not very healthy.

Check this website -- http://ecoport.org/ep?SearchTy.....;page=1914.

Hope GG or any other expert will give better remedy.

Prevent chilli leaf curl

Sheena,

 

Thanks a lot for the ecoport link. That's exactly what I was looking for. Am stumped by the leaf miner problem. Would try to give the remedy given on the blog, a shot.

Do you have any experience with Organic Pesticides?

Hi Snorkel4u,

I am against all kind of chemical use in gardening. Whenever garden people are applying pesticide in common area lawn and plants, myself and hubby ask them not to use near to our villa. I use water to wash away aphids and tobacco and soap solution for other insects. Hand picking the affected leaves is what I did for leaf miner. Try the chilli, Garlic, Ginger extract as suggested by the site.

Regards

Sheena
