Hi,

 

For the first time I am doing vegetable gardening in the terrace of my apartment. I have started with brinjal and palak. I used a seed tray for germinating brinjal seeds and then transplanted them after about 3 weeks. But I see that they are not growing or growing very slow. After transplanting (its more than 10 days now) I could see only 1-2 small new leaves. I have used soil (mixed with cow-dung) and cocopit. I water it daily twice using a water sprayer used in hair saloon. same is the case with Palak. The growth is very very slow. I have not used any compost till now. Is that the reason? which compost should I use? Please help.

I think it would have helped if you mixed compost to the medium that you used. If the top layer of the medium had compost, it would have helped in better germination. Since the seedlings are very young, you must be careful while adding compost. You may try to spray EM solutions or Compost Tea or Panchagavya solution using the sprayer. That could help.

Anyone to educate us more on this?

I think 3 weeks is a little early. I generally transplant around 4 to 5 weeks after sowing. Depending on the transplant shock it will take about 1 to 2 weeks for the plants to recover. After that you should see quick growth. Do not over water. You can know if your plants need more water by scratching the surface of the Soil. In worst cases the plants will tell (wilted leaves etc).
