Drooping Brug Stems

alexamgonzNovember 14, 2010

I started growing my Brug's from seeds about 10 months ago and they are doing well now- about 1 to 1&1/2 feet high. They have lots of foliage but the stems seem to be drooping. I'm not sure if this is normal for Brug's (I hear they can have vine-like tendencies) or if I need to support the stems with something. They are currently in pots 12 inches wide, watered once weekly (no wilting leaves), fertilized once weekly (10-10-10) and kept inside facing westward (the only windows I have are westward facing). What should I do to help them? Any suggestions? When will they start to flower?

Hey and Welcome.. Brugs don't have any vine like tendencies.. Sounds like they are either over watered or under watered.. Stick your finger in the pot and see if the soil is wet or dry.. If it is wet let it dry out if it is dry water it.. ;0)

I look forward to seeing you around..

Kylie's right, they aren't vine like at all. The stems shouldn't be drooping. If it's not a watering issue, rot or some type of disease it could be that it's not getting enough light or the right kind of light. If there's insufficient light the stems can grow thin and lanky and become less rigid.
