I understand Trinidads need additional calcium, is there a household item that would work like crushing up Tums? Can it be added to a balanced fertilizer?
I use a mix of Dolomite Lime and vinegar.
It makes Calcium Acetate which the plant doesn't have to wait for it to break down to use.
It's the stuff in Blossom set spray for tomatoes etc.
Not just Scorpions need extra Calcium.All chinense like extra calucium.
I use dolomite lime because it also has magnesium in it so my plants get both at the same time.
I just put an inch of lime powder in a cottage cheese container and fill it with white vinegar(5%).
Don't tightly cap it or the top will pop off from the gas it puts out when it reacts.
I add more vinegar as I use it up.
Unflavored tums worked but doesn't have the magnesium in it.
you've got three Threads on the same topic, basically....your Trinidad Scorpions.
One Thread would do just fine to ask your questions.
I know that yield can suffer when pinching back anyone have insight on this?
I find that pinching early on can lead to increased branching and bushiness,
which will often allow the plant to support more pods in the long run.
