While our next question came from theresa she wrote into Fred At plan. Talk Radio DOT COM. Says I've been growing tomatoes and Jalapenos from seeds right now. They're about three weeks old. Now been using a grow light. It's been working very well but yesterday and there's always a but but yesterday the leaves started curling up on some of the tomatoes and appears they're dying. Is there any way I can stop this any idea what's going on? Well yes the first thing that comes to mind is what I was kind of alluding to Larry you. You need the lights. And I'm glad they're working. You also need to water the surface of the soil with a Mr now or or droplet types of things. I I have a hunch that you have them at a height and nature. Where they're they're tissue is very very mellow and organisms. That can kill can move through that especially when the soil is warm lighted and a moist. And you probably are over watering so I don't. I don't know how to help beyond that other than the kind of tricky to water these little guys but I would not put the water on the top of the plant and when you do water. Soak the soil nicely. Well I should say well and then do not water again until that surface. The surface of the soil that they're in is quite dry the purple It could indicate to cold. I doubt that to be the case. I know Trinian's win when it's too cold they'll turn purplish etc. But I think you're probably a little too generous with the waters plan.
