Growing Aubergines
« on: April 06, 2021, 11:05 »
I知 trying aubergines for the first time this year with Jewel Jet F1 which is a smaller fruited variety. After reading how they take a while to germinate and need a long season I sowed them 3rd week of Jan, only for them to be coming through in a couple of weeks and then growing strongly under LED lighting. This morning I find one of them has flowered already   ???

What are others experiences with aubergines? I suspect I should remove the flowers and let the plant get bigger before fruiting as there is plenty of time for them to mature?

I have no idea why this site posts my photos upside down, I even turn the original upside down and posted it again to no avail :nowink:

Lucky you, I'd pinch out the flowers and the growing tip to make them grow bushy.
They are slow to germinate and grow, if you don't have the 'luxury' of growing under lights  :D

Sorry, I've no idea about the pics either  ::)

If you used an I-phone to take the pics with the volume button facing upwards (as most people do) the picture is actually recorded upside down, but the digital file created contains information which tells photo-viewing software to turn it the right way up.

Unfortunately, the software this forum uses doesn't recognise this information, so the only way you can post your pictures the right way up is to shoot the pics with the volume button facing down (I know, I know, don't shoot me I'm only the messenger!)  :lol:
Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

I usually post pictures from my iPhone and I just go into edit on the picture and turn them right round in a circle and save. 

It usually looks exactly the same as when you started, but as you are viewing them with the volume button facing up, the phone twigs that that is the right way up and posts them they way you want.

It will show you the picture on the phone the right way up whatever way you hold it, so that is no clue to the actual orientation the phone has it on.

Makes sense  :wacko:  Thought not, but it works for me  :lol:
