@raghu,

the medium for eggplant:  I have used 25% compost red soil (from kitchen waste) mixed with cocopeat, sheep manure, vermicompost,  bio-fertilizers, epson salt. Plus sacred homa ash and energised water. I gave the plants panchaghavya 3 times a month. Yes indeed they are very healthy, I have harvested 2 times fully and 2 times with 2 brinjals. now within a month ready for third full harvest with morethan 9 brinjals as far as I can see. This time I have used cowdung, cotton seed meal and bio macro nutrients. Looks like they loved it and its raining brinjals 🙂
