Methods of use for growing tomatoes
Wounds and fractures in the bushes of tomatoes heal, and the plant does not deteriorate if lubricated with brilliant green. Damage to plants on the stem must be treated in the same way as a human wound. Before uncoupling the vial with a green solution, it is better to wear gloves, otherwise your hands will certainly be stained, no matter how carefully you try.
The stomata of the plants are located on the lower side of the leaf; during spraying, the solution should fall into that part. Thus, the necessary substances are distributed throughout the stem.
The procedure should be carried out in the evening, when the sun is already setting, or in the morning - until the heat comes. You also need to check the weather forecast to not expect rain. Otherwise, the water will wash away all the “work done” from the leaves. And spraying will have to repeat.Wind is also not desirable. When spraying during windy weather, the solution does not settle on the bushes of tomatoes.
Phytophthora fungus is not afraid of winter and can remain in the ground until next year. To insure, you can use the solution to disinfect the soil, where the tomatoes grew or where they are planted for the next season. In the autumn, after harvesting, the ground should be shed with this mixture: 50 ml of brilliant green diluted in a bucket of water.
Make feeding on any soil. And in greenhouses and open beds. The magical diamond liquid saturates the earth with potassium, copper and fluorine. It helps to improve the livelihoods and yield of tomatoes. It is worth paying attention to the dressing of soils with increased moisture. Tomatoes do not tolerate stagnant water in the soil.
Phytophthora is a terrible enemy of tomatoes. Even young seedlings can get sick. It appears as dark brown spots on the leaves and stem. For the season tomatoes are sprayed with the solution several times. Also, you can periodically water the soil. Do it better in the evening or in the morning.
- When the size of the seedlings reaches 10 cm.
- After transplantation in open ground.
- When the ovary of flowers appears (the beginning of flowering)
- Two weeks after transplantation, spraying is repeated until the fruit ripens.
To prepare the solution, the water needs to be slightly warmed up to 40 degrees so that all the components are dissolved. Pills crushed into powder and first diluted in a small amount of water, then combine with the other ingredients.

Mistakes when using brilliant green
The disease is better to prevent than to treat. Therefore, by practicing several recipes, regularly using and alternating them in the processing of tomatoes, you can avoid unpleasant consequences.
A high concentration of brilliant green in water instead of benefit can damage tomatoes and cause burn wounds on the leaves of plants. Especially, it concerns young seedlings.
Also, the amount of fluid left in the crop may cause a burn if there is too much of it on the foliage after processing. Spraying should be like a haze - with a very fine dispersion. For this, it is better to use special sprayers.
Dry soil, poured with a concentrated solution, will become disastrous and the plants will begin to shrink. If this happens, it is worth watering the ground thoroughly, adding moisture to the soil.
If the leaves have already turned yellow and spun, they need to be removed.
