Well, Deep Water Culture does it again!
After counting Flower-Sites I peeked under the leaves of the HydroRush treated Pepper Plant in DWC, look what I found = the early development of a Pepper = Fruit!
Since I don’t have any children, I can imagine how this is how it feels at the arrival of your “First Born” child…just guessing.
As I mentioned, I was doing my now least favorite thing and counted Flower-Sites and Flowers yesterday and while the untreated Pepper Plants now had more Flower-Sites, the HydroRush treated plants had 139% more Flowers and one early Fruit on the DWC sample.
Hmmm, what was it again that we wanted to produce more of? Click on the photo above to see why; really big.
Oh yea = Flowers and Fruit Yields!
