smart pots water troubles
I have experimented with true smart pots and a cheap facsimile (knock-off I guess). I'm having water troubles as the squash and tomatoes have problems with BEM and cukes have lots of curling and distortion--still producing, just not what they should. The fertilizer must just wash out, as I see deficiencies in the leaves, especially in cukes and squash. They are all in 15 gal. sizes. I just pulled out the squash and started them again, one in the same mix as before, but one with a lot of Leaf-Gro (compost)--that one looks twice as big as the other!
can anyone give me a recipe for the "heavier" mix recommended for fabric containers--that must be the problem...(and the heat)???
