Help wifes prize chili plant dying
Hello all. Hope someone Can give mÃÂ© some Sound advice.
My wife went on a holiday for a week the same Day i finished my first Bubble bucket. I decided to give her prize chili the honourable distinction of Being the first plant to grace Said bubbler. She loves this plant and even has a Name for it. Lol
I know i Got carried away and rushed things. I used Danish tap Water without checking ph. For nutrients i used organic Stuff bought from a guy selling plants. He assured mÃÂ© it was good for chilis though his english was poor and he did not understand it was for hydroponic growing. The Stuff is supposed to be mixet at 100/1 for normal watering but i thought cranking it up to 80/1 ish, was a good idea to give her a jump start which i Think May have been one of several mistakes i made. The nutrient is made from fish waste amongst other things. It stinks to much to have in the house so Will be changing that asap.
I believe more than the nutrient it is root shock as this plant was in soil before. the plant is drooping a lot and has been for three days the foilage is still a vibrant green though so i feel there is hope. I looked around and followed advice to. Cut it back that was near two days ago. I havechecked Water levvels and they are fine.
How long Can root shock last and what Can i dÃÂ³. I worry i might be fiddling around with it. To much. Should i just leave it ?
It has even crossed my mind to transplant back to soil or is that madness ?
I have 4 days to perk it up before the Missus returns or Will have to go scouring the shops for a similar looking plant
ThIs was my wifes first plant from seed hence the exessive importance
