If the pot is too small, the growth of your roots, and therefore the growth of your entire plant, will be restricted. If the pot is too big, this increases the likelihood of overwatering, fungus, and root rot.
By using pH up and pH down products, you can adjust your water for the optimal pH level. Make sure you have a pH meter or pH measuring drops!
If you’re growing outdoors in a climate that’s hot and sunny, heat stress could be a problem. Ensure that your plants have some access to shade, especially around midday. Put up some shading or choose a spot with some natural shade to protect your plants from the heat.
