basementgrown started grow question 3 years ago
Is the droopy growth (pictured) a result of over watering or leaves just getting heavy?

Hey there basementgrow, yeah those bugs are afids, one of the best ways to get rid of them is with bacilus thungerensis (BT) and (BT israelis) , these are beneficial microbes that will attack and parasite the larvae of these afids. Second it doesnt look like you've have been overwatering because i can see the leafs are not puffy but that downwards drooping is a symptom of root problems probably from a combination of nutrients and overwatering before. So what i see is you're giving two different micro nutrients , you should really choose only one as they probably both have N in them which is probably what is causing issues in the root zone. Choose the one with the least or no N in it then make sure you give enough to maintain the calcium and magnesium intake. The roots will eventually fix themselves as long as you follow a strict wet/dry cycle, otherwise you can use a chelation agent such as enzymes or humic acid once a week and this should break down the problem roots and gve a boost to your plant. Hope this helps ! :rocket:
