    Melon leaf issues, possible alternatia leaf blight?

    Thank you! I'm on cape cod MA, zone 7a. In doing some research I've read that watering in the evening is to be avoided for crops susceptible to blight, which I'm guilty of on occasion. I'm realizing that I'll have to be pretty vigilant in future seasons in terms of proactively spraying in an...

    Melon leaf issues, possible alternatia leaf blight?

    Thanks a lot Chuck. Since I saw your comment on my tomato post, could there be a connection between early tomato blight and these melon issues? Wondering if I'm dealing with the same fungus affecting both plants or are these altogether separate issues.

    Tomato / pepper leaf issues (blight?) -

    So the spots on the actual tomatoes look like stinkbug damage rather than being related to blight? The tomato leaf spot is pretty widespread throughout the plants but it does seem to be a bit worse toward the bottom of the plants. Is it worth spraying to try and treat early blight? I have a...

    Melon leaf issues, possible alternatia leaf blight?

    Yes, I'm pretty sure this is powdery mildew unfortunately. Caught this a bit late, but I'm now attempting to treat this by spraying a mix of baking soda and neem oil since that's what I have on hand.

    Tomato / pepper leaf issues (blight?) -

    I'm looking for input on whether the attached pics look like tomato leaf blight - It's my first year growing tomatoes, though last year I did have a potential case of alternaria leaf blight on cantaloupes - not sure if this puts tomatoes at higher risk. Tomatoes are spread out all across the...

    Melon leaf issues, possible alternatia leaf blight?

    Plants looked completely healthy with no issues at all up until about three weeks ago, in the early stages of fruit production: Yellow/brown spotting of the leaves and death of some leaves, much worse near the crown of the plants, as shown in the below pics. The fruits seem to be doing ok for...

    Sea oat plant appears to have been eaten - thought they were critter resistant?

    As shown in these pics, my sea oats plants have suddenly been leveled - they clearly look like they've been snacked on, right? Anyone else experience this? I've heard that they're deer/rabbit "resistant" but this looks like the work of rabbits? This must have happened over the last 5 days as...

    Aji Charapita pepper - pale / dying leaves and dark purple veins - chlorosis

    pics of struggling aji charapita seedlings I have no idea what is causing these guys to struggle as shown in the below pics - leaves yellowing with dark veins, some of which have dropped off. I believe the climate is right (65-75F), have lightly fertilized after transplanting from seed starting...

    Canteloupe leaf issues on 1+ month old indoor plants - fungal issues, overwatering?

    My canteloupe seedlings have been off to an impressive start, growing quickly ever since planting them just over a month ago, but I've recently noticed some issues with the leaves per below pictures which I need help identifying. I've had no damping off or any signs of overwatering up to this...

    Pepper seedling (aji charapita) leaf tip issues

    As shown in the pictures, the younger sets of leaves are showing some type of damage / distress. I've read that it could be a variety of things (light bleaching, salt burn, incorrect ph, or the complete lack of nutrients.) but since these aji charapita peppers were grown in the same conditions...

    Early canteloupe seedlings (first true leaves) leaning over to one side

    The slight legginess surprised me given I've set the LED lights to be about as close as safely possible which as about 12" per some online research. I think legginess in this case might be due to very rapid growth as I left the heat mat on for about two weeks following germination - looking back...

    Early canteloupe seedlings (first true leaves) leaning over to one side

    As shown in the attached pics, I've noticed that right after the first true leaves of my melon seedlings became established, about half of my seedlings have started to bend over, leaning to one side. It doesn't look like they're necessarily wilting and the stems appear to be about as thick as...

    Indoor Milkweed yellowing & rooting plugs for propagation

    I propagated from cuttings of my outdoor tropical milkweed back in September. I've had success with rooting, and some have even grown nicely indoors during the off season, but all 6 are struggling with yellowing leaves which quickly drop after yellowing. The yellowing leaves tend to have black...
