Sunflower B- Not doing so good. Starter leaves turned yellow and the true leaves seemed to have curled a bit? Could it be the soil? Used recycled soil from my last sunflower plant. Possible that it's the culprit? Any experts who can offer me some advice?

Hi there, my dad's garden also has these seedlings growing everywhere. He told me it's not one of his plants, pull it out and bury it.

Mine too! My sunflower seedlings leaves turn yellow, and died shortly although it has plentiful of sunlight per day.

I just google for solution and i found this link.

http://homeguides.sf...ings-65122.html


"Nitrogen and phosphorus deficiencies are common problems for sunflowers. Plants needing nitrogen may have yellow leaves that remain green near the veins. while those lacking phosphorus may yellow or develop a purple or reddish discoloration."

Hi CatNipLover, thanks for viewing my post! http://www.greenculturesg.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif I hv decided to wait awhile more b4 rejecting it as a weed as other seedlings came up in the pot last nite (see foto below). http://www.greenculturesg.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif
Can't bear to remove it as they look pretty cute keke.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/4/3936/15279157299_cb4c668d14_m.jpg

So sorry to hear abt yur sunflower plantlet. Hopefully others r doing well. I went on a SOS revival round after seeing yur comments abt the lack of N&P. Added diluted seaweed soln & even crushed egg shells. So far new leaves came up but it's starting to curl agn. http://www.greenculturesg.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/default/sad.gif Anyway, I'll keep trying.

Many thanks for the link ya! http://www.greenculturesg.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif Must b bcos I used recycled soil from the last sunflower plant. *mental note: dun ever do that agn! http://www.greenculturesg.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/default/hitmyself.gif*

Sunflower A is now tall & leggy. Added diluted seaweed soln & crushed egg shells. Hopefully it'll grow fat like those I see in nurseries. Right side is a confused Sunflower C which came up so much later. Can't decide wana grow or nt haha.

Chilli seedlings ready for transplanting? I've thinned out a bit but reluctant to move them to new hm as online suggests that they hate it.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3927/15462653481_df5863fe25_n.jpg

Basil & Mint have grown but moving them might be a problem as well. Esp Mint, as they're so tiny!
