Notes/Pitfall Management
Watch for aphids and botrytis. Myosotis are iron loving. Maintain pH 5.5-5.8. Supplement with additional iron as needed. EDDHA chelated iron (aka red iron) is especially useful if pH rises above optimum. After flower initiation grow as cool as possible (down to 40F) to prolong flowering.
