Slow growth

 Note  •  Published on: 08 May 2015

Never ever using the coconut seedling planters again.  The tomatoes started in them are still tiny sprouts with very little root system.  Tried the newspaper pots as well but they don't decompose fast enough.  Next time I'm going with just soil.  Those are doing the best.  Everything is still very small and I'm supposed to be able to start harvesting next month.  Don't see how.  I fertilized today with a 10/10/10.  Hope it helps!

Plus they were inches away from ones I started in soil and those are doing way, way better. I could have done better still with more light when starting them and maybe a heat pad but I'm in a rental so I'm kind of having to make things work as best as I can until I buy my own house and set up my greenhouse. As an experiment, I carefully broke up the coconut around three plants and replanted back in the pot and left the other three alone. My guess is that I've either helped three to take off or killed them. I wouldn't mind so much but all of my paste tomatoes were in those stupid coconut things.
