I didn't realize that it's been almost three months since I gave an update on my tomatoes! Quite honestly, things aren't looking good for my container garden, ever since Typhoon Lando wreaked havoc on our balcony. I'm still hopeful that my plants would survive until 2016, but I'm not too optimistic about that.
But since I've got some gardening photos piling up, might as well blog about it.
Day 44: Final Re-potting
By this time, my tomatoes sprouted bigger leaves and have grown at least one dangkal in length. As the grower pots seem to be getting smaller for them, I decided that it was time to put them in their final container.
|Healthy seedling, yay!|
To enable more root growth for the big container, I had to snip off some of the bottom leaves, including the cotyledon.
|Tomatoes grow roots on the stem planted underground.|

IMPORTANT NOTE: It is always best to plant deep, because deeper roots means a larger root system, which results to sturdier plants with more ways to absorb nutrition from the soil.
