April 7, 2012 journal

The cucumber seedlings were potted today and they look fantastic. I decided to grow them under a dome using the 125 watt compact fluorescent for a few days before I introduce them to the greenhouse.

The cubes were soaked in full strength nutrient mix prior to potting, and the media was also moistened with the same mix.

The media was tamped loosly around the seedling with a slight amount of nutrient poured into the media from the top.

I find that it is best to water cucumbers lightly, and, frequently. They definitely do not like wet feet! Allowing moisture to accumulate at the bottom of the pot is asking for trouble.
