I can't decide if "Spitfire" is getting too much or too little water. Because I had to leave suddenly for a week, and it took me a little time to get back to a regular care schedule for my plants, a lot of them started disliking me. This nasturtium is under fluorescent grow lights that are on about 16-18 hours each day (from when I wake up to when I crash). I know I have a lot of spider mites around my apartment, but I have not noticed them in the seedling station, and I have been paying particular attention to "Spitfire"--spider mites are what took out my nasturtium last year on my windowsill.
I have plans to put some "Spitfire" seeds at Mr. Yogato and in my community garden. I'm more certain than ever that my hypothesis that the outdoor ones will do better will be true. It's a generally good assumption to make, given the choices. But I would like to prove that nasturtium can grow just fine indoors, too! It might just take more finagling...
I'm growing Nasturtium "Spitfire" for the GROW project. Thanks, to Renee's Garden for the seeds.
