Broccoli is dying on me! Please help
    #623046 - 05/16/12 07:43 PM (4 years, 6 months ago)

Hi, almost all my broccoli plants are turning into this:



It first starts with some discolouration in the leaves, then the plant starts to wilts. Eventually dying in the end, leaving me with the reason that I did not do enough to prevent this.

Information regarding treatment and nature of the broccoli:

- The soil is a mixture of store bought compost and soil in an open container that was sitting there for roughly a year or 2 (possibility that the random soil was tainted?)
- The broccoli have been growing for about 1 1/2 and 2 months
- I have yet to give them any nutrients
- Temperature around 25c (77f) in daytime and around 15c (59f) at night
- I have been watering them ever 4-5 days

My suspicions:

- Phosphorus deficient
- Nitrogen deficient
- Possible mold contamination

Please help with the survival of these broccoli!

I'm going to say nitrogen deficiency for the discoloration issue, Broccoli is generally a very heavy nitrogen feeder because of its large herbaceous leaves. The wilting is pretty perplexing to me, at first I want to say under watering, but my assumption is that you probably watered immediately when they stared drooping.  did watering fix the issue or make it worse?

are these seedlings that have yet to be hardened off? or have they been outside for the past month or month and a half? I have experienced similar issues after throwing my seedlings into my garden without taking the time to let them adjust to direct sunlight.

Also Broccoli is a cold weather plant, like to be shaded.  Could be part of your problem.

Thanks for the quick responses.

I gave every plant of broccoli I have a dosage of miracle-gro singles, that reads a NPK of 24-8-16, roughly 2 hours ago. Prior to that water, the broccoli's seen in the pictures (have more in beds) has been watered with about a cup of water yesterday, and today it seems to have worsened.

Therefore I'm going to place half of the broccoli sprouts into the shade and half stay put. Hopefully in a few days the fertilizer has corrected the issue, and I will analyze which group is more prolific whether its in the shade or direct sunlight.

Also the seeds started out in a temperature of roughly 6c (42f), notably this information was not recorded by me, but rather the history of the average temperature in my city on an annual bases, by viewing the weather network station's website for the information.

In the mean time I will add some apple cider vinegar to some water with a drop of dish washing soap, in order to catch pests. As for that, I thank all 3 of you for assisting me and my family in saving these broccoli plants.

I will update this post tomorrow with pictures and an analysis :sun:

Well today seems like they are improving, especially the one that was totally draped over. As it is easiest to see that the fertilizer has taken hold within the plants cellulose, that helps support its structure. So here is a picture of the broccoli's that have been placed in the shade:



And here are some pictures of the ones that were not relocated:



Also these are the ones that are placed into bedding (they appear to be doing well, when compared to the ones in containers):

(bed closest to the fence)


(bed slightly to the east of the other one)



In that picture above, I believe that the issue is a nitrogen deficiency, as stated by a Harry_Ba11sach. What made me believe it is a nitrogen deficiency is the bottom leaves (farthest out from the stock) are turning a lighter colour, therefore bringing me to the reason that it was a lack of nitrogen.

Thanks to all 3 of you, Harry_Ba11sach, Farmer Joe, and hawksapprentice for aiding me the recovery of these broccoli plants! (I will update this thread tomorrow with some more pictures and an analysis)
