Hi GG,

I got inspired to grow vegetables after visiting your website on Nov 25,2013 and immediately reached your store and bought cocopeat, compost and 6 pots. On Nov 26th I sow bringal, okra, chilli, asparagus, coriander, broccoli, cherry tomato.

 

On Jan 1,2014 - I did my first harvest of coriander leaves - Wow Nice smell and flavour ..Going for next round of seed sowing with methi today. Smile

 

However, I have some issues with my bitter gourd plant, it was growing well until last week, But I guess due to the chill temperature in Bangalore (Around 16c) The leaves became lifeless (still in green color) and slowly changing its colour to yellow. Now, I have shifted that another balcony where I have some glasses protected (betting on greenhouse effect)..Need to wait and see.. whether it survives.. Any inputs will help..GGConfused

 

PS: All the remaining plants are in good stated and I saw some okra tips coming out from the plants..Smile

tryrpk,
regarding the bitter gourd situation, i think it is nitrogen deficiency. To be sure, i need a picture of it. please post a pic and it will make it easy.

good luck

Hi GG,

 

I mixed cocopeat and compost 1:1 and not added NPK so far and not sprayed anything recently.
