This is the test pollination at DAP 17, about the size of a beach ball and looking good. It's probably taking all the energy away from the main pollination, which looks promising at DAP 10 but a bit too early to tell 100% if it's taken or not. I'll have to decide soon which to keep, give it another day or two. Meanwhile, I fitted a Dosatron to acidify the misting water, at pH 7.8 it was leaving limescale deposits on the leaves which will impede photosynthesis, and will in time clog the emitters. So now I've got it down to a much more acceptable pH 6.6.
