Earlier I Transplanted the cabbages and also blogged about it in this post. I thought I will post a picture or two on their progress. The pictures shown below are 15 days after transplanting. The plants are kept in my east facing balcony.
Here they are.
Since this was in my balcony and away from other plants, there is not much of pests/insects problem.
In the picture below, we can see that the leaves have covered the entire pot. I noticed that this reduces the water loss through evaporation from the soil surface. Again due to the large leaf, water loss through leaf will be more. The dust-bin pot has worked well so far for these cabbages.
This variety is called ‘”Earliana” and is supposed to mature at 60 days from the date of transplanting. Lets see how it fairs..
As always comments, suggestions, queries are most welcome!.
The leaves look so large and healthy. Hope the fruit keeps the same standard. Waiting to see your results 🙂
Thanks Asha, I am keeping my fingers crossed. Lets see how it fairs out. Will keep you posted of the results.
It looks very good! Are these pots going to be enough room for them to grow?
Thanks. I think a 20Litre pot would have been great but they are right now in 8 ltr containers ( which I had in plenty). Lets see how big its gonna grow.

Yes you should thin them to 1 plant per pot. I will soon update you with the cabbage pics.
