Other Info:

Suffer from tip burn caused by the inability of the plant to transpire enough to get the calcium into the leaf edges and growing points so cell breakdown occurs. This shows as a brown leaf margin and like any dead tissue will be prey to fungus like botrytis that can then attack the living tissue. Transpiration can be improved by reducing humidity such as raising the temperature or by purging with fresh air through the vents, typically early in the morning unless foggy or humid outside. Calcium is rarely short in the compost they simply cannot lift it. Calcium sprays help such as Wuxal or even feed grade calcium Nitrate. The latter goes on at 5g per litre every couple of weeks say in with a fungicide and a wetter helps.
