Mine have been a disaster. 3 out of 5 plants dead and I am not expecting the others to live. My first attempt at growing them so not sure what I have done wrong

Oh no @charlotte where they in the greenhouse?

comment
charlotte

Yes @kimmy01 . In the greenhouse. One plant is over 6 foot now. Loads of flowers but is dying from the base up. seems to go mouldy/ mildew. I water it every day and feed it once a fortnight

kimmy01

Hmmm 🤔 maybe to much water @charlotte ? I don't water mine everyday but mine are tiny.

Oh. Are they just going out ? Mine are dying and am so upset. I think I might have put them in the greenhouse too early

kimmy01

These are still in my house I'll pot them in bigger pits when I get more compost but they are OK for now there is still no sine of roots under the pots yet @charlotte 😊 are you're getting to hot? I thought they where supposed to like the humidity if you make it humid in there? 🤔 they sound complicated I hope I can grow them. I will be keeping 1 or 2 outside to compare

I'm jealous 💚💚 of you both @kimmy01 @shelleyB. I planted some seeds a month ago all doing we put left the lid on propagator when the first lot of sun 🔆 came and they cooked in the heat. Can't tell you how gutted I was. So disappointed and annoyed with myself. Think I'll have to buy already planted now too late to sow seeds now 😭😭😭

comment
kimmy01

I done mine a bit late too but I didn't know I was being a greenhouse... They shot up pretty quick mind but if you can buy a few already grown that will be good @Cazx I've been having trouble growing chillys I've been trying for nearly 2 months I think they where just too far out if date lol its to late now really but I've got some g

I slice veg up like cucumber, tomatoes and I have put some Capsicum seeds in from a couple I bought. They are coming through apart from the Capsicum. I only put it in last week so that will take longer to come through.
