Antwort auf: Re: Compost trial with C. californicum seedlings von Uta von Rad am 21 August, 2002 um 22:15:43:

Dear Uta,

I think the difference is just due to the different water retention qualities of these two composts. The composts are neutral to basic as some of the grit is limestone and I feed with a fertilizer containing trace elements. It is not unusual for seedlings to look pale and yellowish and this can be due to too much light, sudden cold spell when they are young or starvation from poor root to compost contact. The photo is not so good as these seedlings have quite a good colour.
