Hai the plant is very good.But in our area i wont plant egg plants because it invites all types of pests&spread to other plants also it can be controlled by using only harmful pesticides ,bio does not work .

Hi,

 

Healthy plants and good harvest. Like Raghu says, Brinjal is very much prone to insects. Prevention is better than cure.

Thank you all for ur replies,encouragement and suggestions. 

For pest controle I have different approach, I use homa ash(miracle ash) and also spray Divya Dravya (energised water).

Hi evryone,

 

If u plant garlic around ur main vegetable,it repells the pests from attacking any vege or plant.

 

this is one of the method to control harmful insects.

 

Happy gardeneing to all.

Hay Ganapathy,

 

It is just awesome. You must start exploring yummy recipes for the crop.

Can you please share the pot size which you used to plant this variety. I have also bought the seeds of eggplant (the dark purple one) recently and waiting for the germination. Your experience will help me do it in a right way.

I have pots available from 8" to 12" but don't know how deep it requires. 

Regards..

Viny

@viny, First I used a tea cup to sow the seed in coco peat and then I have transplanted into 10 inch cement pot. I suggest you to use 12''. bigger the better. Make sure to plant only 1 per pot. 

Have transplanted green long eggplant in a grow bag, yet to see how it grows.

You can also grow them in 20lts plastic bucket.

Excellent Show, Ganapathy.

Even I have planted few Brinjals and they have just started. I should be careful about the pests. As someone said, I should plant garlic around the plants.

I had some good Okra plants and they gave me good yield. But with the recent rains in Chennai, I have lost couple of them and only one is standing still. I am planning to remove them and plant new seeds. 

I wanted to know if it will be an advantage if I plant a different plant (like Okra or any other beans) in the pot where I had Okra? or I should only plant okra seeds in them?

Please advice.

~Jay
