Here's the photo link, nothing to get excited about. You might notice the curl in the older tomato leaves. Happens every year and doesn't seem to worry the plants, but whether it's a sign of a...

Hi Luches,



You're spot on. The reading at 1.8 is now about 6.3. I've added MgSO4. by the way, but not the calcium chloride for the moment because it's only available in very large bags at a...
