Q.Zucchini And Jalapeno Aren’t Growing

Zone san marcos, CA | sandra.sandra added on May 5, 2020 | Answered

Hi , I purchased two zucchini plants and one jalapeno one about a month ago. I planted in the organic soil and then realized that slugs had been biting them. I purchased anti slug and added it around the plants about 4 days ago, but plants have not grown yet and I have not seen any signs of flowers or fruit. Would someone provide some feedback?

A month would be about the time it would take to start seeing good growth, had the plant been left alone by pests. Any infestation will prolong this.

Once any issues are killed off, the plant will resume normal growth. This may take a while due to still being a semi fresh planting.

Here are some article that will help:
