Watering tomato seedlings

Seedlings of tomatoesWater - the source of life, because it is necessary for all living things for proper and full development. Tomatoes are no exception, to form healthy and quality seedlings they need proper watering, which consists in moderation.

What threatens drought?

With small watering, the lower layer of the soil dries up, and the roots start to choke. Approximately the same thing happens when replacing irrigation with spraying. The upper layer of the soil appears uniformly black, which leads to a wrong conclusion about the state of the lower layer of the earth coma. The moisture of the soil with proper watering should be uniform both inside and outside. Therefore, it is better to water the seedlings of tomatoes abundantly, but rarely, rather than a little and often.

What causes excess watering?

When the seedlings are excessively flooded with water, its roots choke on lack of oxygen. And the wrong conditions of maintenance combined with overflow of seedlings leads to diseases such as root rot, which can very quickly be dealt with by most of your seedlings. Therefore, in a container with seedlings, there must be a drainage hole.

How to water tomato seedlings

A few rules will help you produce the correct watering of tomato seedlings:

  • The first watering is carried out not earlier than in 2-3 days after mass shoots, when the upper layer dries. If you are afraid of pouring still tender plants, then you can make watering through spraying. But you need to do this in such a way that water falls as little as possible on plants.
  • Further, watering is carried out regularly as the earth coma dries up. Remember: do not let the soil dry out, but you do not need to fill it too.
  • Once a month, watering can be combined with additional fertilizing with organic fertilizers.
  • Before the picking, watering is done for 1-2 days, so that the soil has had time to dry up a little and was quite friable.
  • After picking the plants do not water for 4-5 days!
  • The spiked seedlings are watered about once in 7-10, depending on the age. The older and broader the bush, the more water it will absorb. In order not to be mistaken, keep an eye on the condition of the soil and the plants themselves.
  • Adult sprouts can be watered from the pallet. This method stimulates the development of a powerful and more branched root system, since the roots will reach out to reach the desired water.
  • Before planting in the soil watering the seedlings, the tomato should be abundant in order to exclude damage to the roots.

Agree, to comply with such rules - is not difficult. The main thing is not to be lazy and do everything in time, and then to planting on a permanent place your seedlings will be healthy and luxurious.
