I just transplanted 3 okra plants yesterday, and I find all 3 to be drooping this evening. Will the plant take time to revive after transplant? Is there anything i should do? Pls help.

Okra should not be transplanted. It is very sensitive to root shocks. give it some time.. if it worsens, sow some more but this time directly into the pot.

Hi GG,

 

I sowed a few okra seeds couple of days back (in propagation trays with cocopeat) and they have just started coming up. As you mentioned in your previous post about root shocks, would it be better if i transplant right away to pots ? If so, what sized pots would you recommend ?

If you have used seed trays and transplanted along with the media it should pick up. GG, i have had decent success transplanting Okras from the seed trays. Failure is less. I am not sure if i am equipped enough to comment but transplanting as a whole from the seed tray along with cocopeat will result in fair amount of success.
