Our plants have gotten so big that we had to raise the light on the system because the tops of the plants started to get wrinkled and burned. Also one of the plants started to just randomly die. A picture of it is below. The roots of the plant have hit the water and the emitter for that plant is still working so we know that it has plenty of water. All of the other plants look healthier than ever. So we have not been able to determine what is wrong with the plant.
Maybe we didn’t notice it on Monday, but some of the smaller plants have grown pretty tall in a very short amount of time. The pH today was at 6.1, which is a great area for it to be in. We still have one more week of growth left. We are a little disappointed we won’t get to see the full grown peppers, but maybe we’ll continue to grow them outside of class.
