The Same 1832.5 Graham ’20 (F: 1938 Sperry x M: 1339 Graham)

*Yes, this is the same plant that has been in the previous postings, no trick photography, sleight of hand or plant changes, this is just now an iron sufficient plant.

This does not even look like the same plant, but shows the importance of identifying and correcting nutrient deficiencies early. In fact, the plant may be deeper green than it should be as the iron application and absorption had a slight delay. One other note is the leaf on the right that is yellow is the same leaf in previous images that has some of the green leaf veins and as you can tell, once the leaf “matures” do not expect it to green up, the goal is to look at the potential progression in the developing growth to see if corrective measures are working.

Also, the official iron fertilizer as now arrived, but does not look like it is currently needed, but continual monitoring will occur to stay ahead of any future potential iron deficiency issues.
