Winter is pumping, which means that all sorts of pots, containers and boxes with seedlings reappear on all the windowsills of the country. Not surprising, because growing seedlings is a favorite pastime of many summer residents. But, in addition to pleasure, it also brings “eternal” troubles and worries - how to properly care for the seedlings to grow well and not get sick? Unfortunately, very often both experienced and novice gardeners are faced with the problem of pulling out seedlings.
Why are the seedlings pulled out?
Anyone who has been sowing seeds for seedlings of tomatoes, eggplants and peppers for several years knows that the main reason for elongated sprouts is a lack of lighting. But it's one thing to know the reason, it's another to create optimal conditions in the apartment for growing vegetable seedlings.
We do not have so many sunny windowsills, but we want to grow everything and more. In addition, the shops are delighting with offers of the most fantastic varieties, and we are starting to compact our plantings. We come up with different ways of placing as many as 100 roots on 1 square meter! And plants begin to struggle for survival and, overtaking each other, they stretch upward - towards the light. And this is logical. In tomato and pepper seedlings, the stems are stretched, becoming thin and weak, but the root system, on the contrary, does not develop enough.
Low lighting isn't the only problem. To prevent the seedlings from stretching, they need some lowering of the air temperature, especially at night. In apartments, as a rule, heating is still working at this time, and on unheated loggias and verandas at night the seedlings can freeze. Therefore, the seedlings have to be kept warm, and it is extremely difficult to avoid pulling the sprouts even for experienced gardeners.
Novice summer residents make mistake after mistake - in conditions of lack of lighting and too high temperatures, they begin to intensively fertilize the seedlings. Indeed, if the sprouts are so thin and pale, it means that they lack nutrition, many people think. As a result, the seedlings stretch even more …
How to solve the problem of pulling seedlings?
And the problem needs to be solved in a completely different way - to influence the sprouts through the roots, using the "Reggae" growth regulator from the "August" company. This specialized preparation is effective not only for growing strong vegetable seedlings, but also flower crops and strawberries.
The advantages of using the Reggae growth regulator:
- Promotes the formation of a powerful root system of seedlings;
- Suspends excess growth of seedlings of vegetables and flowers;
- Increases the decorative qualities of flower crops and prolongs flowering;
- Helps to form a strong compact bush;
- Reduces the formation of whiskers in strawberries, thereby increasing the number of berries;
- Promotes an increase in plant resistance to adverse conditions.
Often a protracted spring and inclement weather postpone planting dates, and vegetable seedlings outgrow. It is difficult to deal with this, but in this case "Reggae" will also help. Spraying with a solution of the drug will stop growth, which in the future will allow you to plant strong plants with a strong root system in open ground, which can easily adapt to a new place.
How to use "Reggae" for seedlings?
They begin to use "Reggae" at the very beginning of the growing season, and it is very easy to do it. The main thing is to follow the instructions.
"Reggae" for tomatoes and peppers (spraying)
1 ml of the drug is diluted in 1 liter of water. Working solution consumption - 300 ml per 10 sq. M. Spray the seedlings over the leaf three times. 1st treatment - in the phase of 2-4 leaves, the second and third - at intervals of 5-8 days.
"Reggae" for tomatoes and peppers (watering at the root)
1 ml of the drug is diluted in 1 liter of water. The consumption of the working solution is 30 ml per plant. Seedlings are watered once under the root in the phase of 3-4 leaves.
"Reggae" for cabbage
3 ml of the drug is diluted in 1 liter of water. Consumption of working solution - 1 l per 1 sq. M. Watering seedlings at the root is carried out three times: the first time - in the phase of cotyledon leaves, the second and third times - with an interval of 7 days.
"Reggae" for strawberries
10 ml of the drug is diluted in 1 liter of water. Working solution consumption - 300 ml per 10 sq. M. Plants are sprayed on the leaf twice: 1st time - at the beginning of the budding phase, 2nd - a week after the first spraying.
"Reggae" for flower container crops
1 ml of the drug is diluted in 100 ml of water. The consumption of the working solution is 50-100 ml per plant. Plants are watered twice during the growing season: 1st time - in the phase of formed buds (but not yet colored), 2nd - 5-6 months after the first use.
The plant growth regulator from overgrowing seedlings "Reggae" begins to act 12-24 hours after application, and within an hour after spraying it is not washed off from the leaves with water during irrigation. Unlike other similar preparations, "Reggie" has a strengthened formula and after its application, the seedlings not only stop stretching, but form strong healthy bushes. The ecological safety of "Reggae" guarantees a rich, healthy and high-quality harvest.
