After taking 1 harvest of spinach, the new leaves in this pot have appeared lighter. Have taken a second harvest yesterday. I have fertilised it with a 19-19-19 soluble fertiliser once after a month of sowing (after taking first harvest, putting only a small amount so as to avoid burn, quarter tsp in 500 ml water and putting half of it.) For comparison, unharvested plants are there in the second image. Is it a nutritional deficiency? The initial potting mix has cocopeat, vermicompost and perlite.

P. S. The weather is hazy here in New Delhi due to pollution so the images have a yellowish tinge.

  • Your plants are healthy. But consider that they hate heat. Spinach is happy in North Italy, but in the South, it turns into collard. In other words, tough leaves. Commented Nov 5, 2023 at 14:35
