-Since the root systems of eggplant are sensitive to excess water, deep cultivation prior (such as raised beds) to planting is advisable.
-Eggplant is adapted to both wet and dry season cultivation, but excessive rainfall will reduce vegetative growth and flower formation.
-Eggplants are ready for transplanting when they have 4 to 5 leaves which generally takes 4–5 weeks.
-Branches can be pruned to almost a bare plant in order to stimulate new growth or to reduce damage from an approaching typhoon.

Banana Grow Tips (source: cnas-re.uog.edu)
-may be planted at any time during the year and generally flower in 10-15 months after planting.
-with dry season lasting up to six months it is essential that irrigation be provided for that part of the year.
-bananas are fast growing plants which yield a heavy crop which requires repeated applications of fertilizers. (On Guam, chicken manure is widely used.)

Lettuce Grow Tips (Source: cnas-re.uog.edu)
-grows best in fertile, well-draining soils with high organic matter such as Guam-Yigo complex, Pulantat clay, and Togcha-Akina silty clay soils, and prefers a media/soil pH of 5.8 to 6.5.
-Lettuce heads are usually harvested by cutting one (1) inch above the soil line.
-When using compost, ensure the material has undergone a thorough composting process, and is fully cured (will result in a stable and disease-free media).
