Twenty days old radish 21
No buds coming out.
It is a successfully sown turnip seed, but there are some growers who do not release new seeds except for some shoots.
After sowing and watering, there is nothing you can do after that. It feels like drawing, whether it sprout or not. And I think this time’s Omikuji was written like this.
“There are no waiting people, people to stop.”
To find out the cause, we will issue SOS to Mr. Souya Hashiguchi, who is familiar with “Soyan Master”.
What is the cause of not sprouting?
What happened to this sowing? Let’s review the process and find the mistakes.
Is there a problem with the soil?
First, I put the soil in the potted plant. You cannot make mistakes here.
I used two types of soil.
|A||Recycled land|| Used when growing cucumbers in the summer (sun-sanitized)|
Made from palm fiber so it feels soft and light.
|B||New cultural land||I just bought it at the center.|
Did you sow bad seeds?
When the potting medium has been filled with soil, a trench is created on the surface of the soil and seeded. Period is good. Hmmm, is this wrong?
The timing of sowing is clearly safe.
Is there too much land?
After sowing the seed, I covered it with soil. The covered soil is about 2 cm. Newly transplanted soil (B), not yet sprouted, after watering, it feels like the soil surface is seized. Recycled soil (A) germinates immediately, so I’m worried that (B) cannot sprout due to soil resistance.
I’m not sure if this happened outside or safe, but I do find that “air” is also an important factor.
After all, this is the cause?
After covering the soil, I lightly press the surface and water a lot of water. Planters are placed on a thick wall on the veranda.
A, out ~. Since I am a sun supreme these days, I have no idea to put it in the shade.
It is also important that the soil temperature is appropriate, says Master Soyan. It seems that the three “water”, “air” and “temperature” conditions are very important for seed germination.
After learning a bit about the possible causes, I decided to do it again.
Check for differences in water permeability of each soil type
I noticed something was wrong with the soil when I accidentally dug up the soil to sow it again.
The surface of the soil was wet with water, but the soil dug up was dry and dry. It seems that some of the parts are waterproof, but most of them are still waterproof. How. This will not reach seeds with enough water.
Certainly, I was worried that water would form on the surface. So I put each of the five soils on the porch into a plastic cup and poured an equal amount of water down from the top to check the permeability.
|A||Like the land of Planter A, used again from the previous crop.|
Light soil made of palm fiber and fine shavings.
|B||It resembles Planter B, and I just bought it.|
An integrated cultured soil created by adding peat moss and vermiculite to Akatama and Kanuma soils.
|C||The raw materials are palm fibers and the bark has been broken down. It’s dark and moist.|
|D||French fries and rice husk charcoal mixed with palm fiber. It is wet.|
|E||It is made from large and small pieces such as coal and vermiculite. The feeling of fluttering.|
The results are self explanatory.
From the side of the plastic cup containing the uncovered soil (B), I can clearly see where the water is soaked and what is still dry. It stays that way even after a while until it penetrates.
Of course, the conditions are different from when you put it in a large pot, but it’s possible that the water seeped in the same way.
By the way, something surprising happened with the cucumber’s recycled soil (A) cup. The water was completely drained and collected on the bottom of the cup.
With this, the water retention effect cannot be expected. The reason why trees are sprouting on this land is probably due to proper watering. When I mix it with water by hand, I feel that the filament is absorbing water and expands. It looks like you need to take a little care as it dries.
The remaining soils (C) and (D) also contain palm fibers, but they feel damp and moist from the state they were in the bag, and they immediately soak in when watered. (E) is soil that appears to be made up of large and small particle fragments, and I feel no problems with penetration.
Just looking at this result, it is impossible to say unconditionally good or bad soil. However, I understand that knowing the properties of each soil type has the potential to minimize failures.
What is the cause of the slowdown?
On the other hand, regenerated soil (A) that has sprouted but has become longer than necessary is called an elongated state. Why.
According to Master Soyan, there are 4 possible reasons for the leader.
When I checked the amount of soil from the teacher’s point of view, it was definitely small. I intend to put the soil under the line “Put the soil far away” inside the potted plant, but the surface of the soil I actually see lies below that line.
In addition to making a conservative estimate when considering seeding, it is possible that the soil subsided slightly due to watering. It is like a beginner cooking with a modest amount of salt.
In addition, it can be said that (4) thinning should be done earlier and more fully.
The long-awaited germination
The soil of (B) that did not germinate was first moistened, then re-seeded, covered with soil and watered again from above.
Three days after sowing again, a portion of the soil germinated. Then wait a few more days, the young shoots gradually grow. However, it seems that the appearance of the shoots is still not uniform.
There seems to be a special soil for sowing, so this may not be suitable for sowing. In addition, it is compatible with each vegetable. Even so, there is a lot of wisdom and tips to learn from sowing a seed.
The path of sowing was not completed in a day.
Turnip cultivation was not completed in 20 days.
The path to a vegetable garden, where vegetables grow in abundance, seems as far away as Rome.
◆ Take one step and take two steps down. Next time, we will plant seeds that utilize the properties of the companion plant.
