How to care for ho useplant begonia rex?


Growing Requirements for Rex Begonia Plants Rex Begonias grow best in bright, indirect sunlight coming from an east or west window.
Fluorescent grow lights are also an excellent alternative to natural light for these plants,
and in many cases will intensify the foliage colors.
When potting, set the plant with the crown slightly above the soil line.
They should be planted in a porous, slightly acidic planting mix that contains some peat moss
and leaf mold. African Violet potting mixes work well for Rex Begonias.

Allow the top 1inch of soil to dry before watering, then water thoroughly.
Over watering can lead to root or crown rot! Wet foliage can cause problems with mildew.
Always use room temperature water when watering house plants.
House plants should never be allowed to stand in water for more than a few hours.
Painted-Leaf Begonia plants thrive with daytime temperatures of 70-75
and 60-65 at night. NEVER lower than 60!
They require a humidity level of at least 50 percent and appreciate periodic, light misting.
Provide additional humidity by setting the plants on shallow trays filled with moistened pebbles,
or a humidifier, especially during the winter months.

Feed actively growing plants in early spring and again in early summer with a slow-release plant food,
or every 2 weeks using a quarter strength dilution of a soluble, complete fertilizer (23-19-14).
Decrease feeding in early fall and stop altogether in the winter. Do not over-fertilize!

Your Begonia Rex may go dormant in the winter and possibly drop its leaves.
If this happens, continue to water sparingly until spring when new leaves will re-appear.
If your Rex is growing where it only gets light from one side ( a window sill),
turn the pot a quarter turn each week to maintain even growth.
Foliage color may fade under low light conditions. Consider using a grow light.

Remove any dead leaves and other debris around plant regularly.
Rex Begonias enjoy spending the summer in a shaded part of the garden.
Always be sure to check for insects and pests before bringing your plants back indoors!
Rex Begonias are susceptible to attacks from mealy bugs.

What is the cure for yellow leaf on tomato plants


Usually fungus. You need to plant tomatoes where the sun will dry the overnight dew quickly each day. Don't water at night (water in the morning). Try to water the soil and not the leaves.

Ask your nursery for a fungicide (or if something else is causing yellow leaf in your area). They will know and guide you.

Best set to pull off the dead/yellow leaves to limit cross contamination and spread of the fungus/mold.

How do i set the system to run 2 times per day


You have multiple start times in 1 or all of the programs A,B,C or D. 1 start time in the A program will run the zones in this program once on the days it is schedule to water. Example: Think of each program as a separate timer. All want to know 3 things What time to water, how long to water for and what days to water. Timer 1 is the A program. Set to water everyday at 8 am for every zone which has a duration. Don't want the plants to water everyday take the minutes out of zone run time in this timer or the A program. Want the plants to water M,W,F add a start time, a run time to corresponding zone and M,W,F in timer 2 or B program. Want the plants to water twice in a 24 hr period add a second start time to each timer or program. and so on. The programs are only used for watering schedules with more or less days per week you want a specific zone to water. Otherwise use only the A program with 1 start time for once a day or whatever days you desire for all zones.

Why is my plant brown?


Many reason could cause it. The water is not getting all the way to the leaf, it gets either hot or cold freeze temperatures at some point during the day, too many toxicity on its environment, lack of nutrients on the water. I try some Basic H from Shaklle first, it been use for decades to increase water absorption on agriculture among many other things, and then if that is not enough, some miracle grow, which is a load of minerals for the plants.

My hotpoint aqualtis will only select the drain cycle or the slow spin cycle. There's no blockage as ive removed all pipes at the back and cleaned them.


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Lid Switch Assembly If the washer stops mid cycle the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer stops mid cycle the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Water Inlet Valve If the washer stops mid cycle the water inlet valve cold water side may have failed. Most washers have a cold water rinse and so if they can't fill with cold water they just sit indefinitely waiting for the cold water to enter. If there is cold water to the water inlet valve and the cold water works in other parts of the cycle - or to make warm water - the valve is not the problem.
Main Control Board If the washer stops mid-cycle the main control board might be defective. This is not common. Check other causes first such as the lid or door switch and other components.

Timer If the washer stops mid cycle the timer might be defective. This part is often misdiagnosed, check other components before replacing this timer.

see the diagram attached.

I have a 40 gal. freshwater planted aquarium. I would like to know if the Fluval CO2 88 will be large enough for my aquarium. Most plants I use are mosses, crypts, water sprite wendi (sp) & several...


I am no expert with CO2 but i would say that for the amount of plants you have going by the picture vs the amount of fish you shouldnt really need the CO2 at all.
One way to naturally increase CO2 is to run less or no bubbles in the day while the plants are using the CO2 and producing Oxygen and then run bubbles over night to clear out the CO2 the plants produce at night to okeep it safe for the fish.

Stopped mid cycle


I think I answered one like this the other day...verify this before doing it....does your washer have a dial or a computer panel?

If it's a dial, then remove it and checker the disc underneath it, if it has some "teeth" missing, then it would be the timer that needs to be replaced, very simple to fix.

If it is a computer panel, you will need a repairman to help you with that, he may prefer to do it alone?? LOL

Good luck

How to set start time on timer raindrip r672c


The start time on these style of timers is whenever you set it. So if you want it to run at night it needs to be set at night, e.g. turn to off/reset, then at 10pm go set to the freq. and duration desired, then it will run at 10pm. Also note this timer waits a full cycle to run the first time after it is set, e.g. if today you set it to run weekly, the first time will be next week.
