Greenhouse cucumber problem

Postby dj_backq » Jun 24, 2008 5:46 pm

My friend is having some problems with her greenhouse cucumber, they seem to be drying and dying. She came to me for help... but the only thing I'm thinking of is magnesium deficiency. Keep in mind that she also is organic.

Possibly alternaria, in which case decreasing humidity and increasing air circulation/exchange should help.

High humidity encourages a lot of nasties - in the greenhouse and in the field.
