Pritham-Our Pride Speaks

allo allo CVP and Sangeetha
its been a while and wanted to inform you that i have slowly revived my hydroponics, and this time i decided to start with veg,crops that i didnt try last time.
i have the usual amaranthus... which is a very poplular fav here....
then am growing palak,pumpkin, mangalore cucumber also known as vegetable sambar cucumber, radish
pls check the pics...
everything is excellent, except if u see the larger pumpkin leaves u can see a mild attack of insects which i have taken care of thanks to neem...
my other concern is.... the seedlings show a condition called etiolation.... which is common when there is very less sunlight. the funny thing is the place where it is growing, has plenty of sunlight, but somehow the seedlings stalk seems weak and pale....
i decided to grow the crops close by to my house as its a lot easier to monitor since, its just 20 steps away from my room ... literally...
even the sambar cucumber seedlings have the same growth pattern like radish.....
the place i use to grow is our garage which is closed on 2 sides and totally open on 2 sides... if it was a problem with shade, it would have reflected on pumpkin and amaranth , both which need plenty of sunlight...
anyways... waiting for your answer.... and on a lighter note.... on reverbnation.com i am finally #1, artist under metal, in India and top 120 globally... bwah hah ahaha
