I have a new plant as of a month ago. I put it in a pot with good soil I thought. It grew 5 leaves on a stem but I accidentally broke it off. The mail stem leaves only 5 have started turning a little yellow /green with green veins. I want it to grow. What am I doing wrong? How often in a pot should you water. I thought every 3 days. Need expert advise please.

Putting sulfur in hole with blueberry plant

I plan to plant some Star blueberry's tommorow, but my soil is 6.2 pH. My plan is to mix some sulfur with the dirt under the plant, then put some peat between the sulfur and plant, then after planting sprinkle more sulfur around plant and then cover with pine bark. Questions are: will this be safe for plant? How much to use? How long before I see a reduction in pH?
