Zelda just keeps confusing me. She's bushing out and growing, but she doesn't look happy.
She finally has started to resume growth again at least and her tops are growing in all aspects again, so maybe it's just all the new growth after she's been slowly growing for awhile.
If I were to guess what is happening I'd say it's the main top stem getting nearly snapped in half causing a topping like situation where energy is dispersed across the tops left. She didn't lose that top and it's almost fully knuckled up now. It has a lot less stretch with it's new growth, but it's growing just like the rest despite the damage.
Tulip is growing up so fast today too. She's really liking her new spot in the tent buffering the breeze for Zelda. Maybe it's in part due to her having a lot more light than before and a nice rustling breeze.
Actually on a second glance she's drooping also. I'm going to have to water her in the morning. Last time she went lifeless if I waited to water all at the same time.
I tested my tap water today with a few ppm tester strips for pools and it couldn't find any chlorine in my tap water at all. My tap water tested at 7 +/- 0.15 pH it matched up with the 7.2ph square and my pen decided to function after I had checked it for accuracy with the strips and measured only slightly lower than the strips. The runoff still hasn't turned anaerobic and it's testing at total hardness 500ppm, alkalinity 80ppm, 6.8-7.2 pH (pen 6.8 strip 7.2), 0ppm free chlorine, and 0ppm total chlorine.
Tomorrow I'll be able to check the ppm of the tap properly, but it was around 250ppm I think if it wasn't the 100ppm one. I'll check in the morning and check to be sure. Funny though that the runoff is testing like a slightly higher ppm than I would want for nute water. My thoughts on it seem to be correct and it's full of microbiology from the soil. Before it turns I'll add it to the garden outside and let it do some good. The winter plants seem to love the runoff I give them or they just appreciate being watered LoL
