I can see signs of drooping again on Zelda, but not enough that I'd think I would have to water again today. If I do I'd please like someone to advise me on how to water her next time?
Tulip is happy. Her purple stripes on her stem are vanishing and she's knuckling all over. She's almost as tall as Zelda now. I can't tell if Zelda is stretching at all, but I can definitely tell tulip is starting hers, but she's also thickening the stems when she does evening out growth.
The Basil is officially back to growing again. The top I had pinched is resuming growth from that tip again and still I much prefer the bushier basil growth pattern from top instead of fim.
The garlic and herbs in the pot next to Zelda and Tulip are growing extremely well. That garlic seems to be in love with what I'm doing. Something I've learned is purple basil appears to have different nutrient requirements than sweet basil. Enough that the seedlings just struggle and die by the time it takes the sweet basil to get huge. For comparison sweet basil took no more than a week after sprouting to get some growth and not just get bigger cotyledons and the purple basil took a long time to sprout at all and then when they did they're very slowly growing and most have shriveled up. None are dead yet, but it's clear they are not happy in the same soil sweet basil and the rest of the herbs are thriving in.
