 Do any of you have any experience with or tips for growing capitata?
I have found that it needs three things to show its true beauty: Light---lots
of it; very friable soil; and regular application of a foliar, such as
Miracid. It needs an acid soil, i.e., a low pH. Also, given its rather thin
leaves, one should protect it against slugs and cutworms and sowbugs. A
regular dusting of Sevin and a specific for slugs AND sowbugs. Be sure to
remove all debris from its base. 
If it looks sickly, apply a small amount of Aluminium S. around the perimeter
and scratch in lightly and then water.
