Starting Seeds with LED Plant Lights. 1.14.18
Two Men and a Little Farm:
Here is a delightful geometric design idea. They borrowed the idea and say it is relatively easy to build. Notice the water hose bowl bottom-right.
Dallas! Espostoa and the cristate are realy great. Here we prefer to buy grafted plants. They are easy to handle and grow much faster than the rooted plants. On attaining the size near to size of mature plant graft is broken and plants are converted to rooted ones. You people live in the home of cacti, here it is very difficult to get a desired plant. We usually spend more in search of plants than the actual price. Only way left is raising collection from seeds. First time I bought seeds from Chiltren Seeds but was unable to germinate a single one. Then I tried Cactus Store seeds.Germination rate was astonishing. But now I couldn't handle the seedlings. About 300 out of 2000 are still alive and perhaps out of danger at an age of one and half. My real love are Espotoas, pilosocereus, micranthocereus, Austrocephalocereus and oreocereus(wooly cereus). I had more than 450 seedlings of their different varities but unfotunatly nothing servived apart from three(perhaps overcare). Now I am trying Mesa Gardens and Succseeds. Hope past experience counts. Have you anything from pilosocereus faimly?
Hy Dallas, its realy nice to see someone intrested in cacti. Notocactus with yellow hair like spines in the center of the picture is a very nice plant. If it make a wooly barrel in future then it is an unusual plant. Take care, it alone is precious than all other collectively. Which barrels have you bought?
Dallas, your plants are so pretty, and I recognize some of the lawn grass as the kind we had in Killeen. I like the way your brick walls and fence blend together and the way you use your plants. The cactus bed presents a nice blend of textures and colors. Clay pots add a nice tone to a garden. I remember as Feb and March being miserable months with cold, wet, windy weather with occasional snow.
Good night everyone, hope you all have a fine weekend.
Dallas, These are such beautiful plants. Truly, one of the benefits of living in Texas is the great array of plants available. Enjoyed the visit to your garden.
Sentient, If my brother was still with us, he could probably tell us whether those mushrooms are edible or not. He was an amateur, but he probably knew more about mushrooms than anyone in Idaho. Maybe some other states as well!
Chris, thanks for the information. I will give Rosemary another try this year. Plants have a way of telling us what they want, so I shall listen.
I had heard that rosemary preferred dry conditions too, but I knew a 5 year old rosemary bush that grew near a ditch on clay, just above the water line: it was planning to take over the neighbourhood...
Chris, how do you do it? I have bought supermarket Rosemary and it dries up and gets bitter before I use it up. I have not been able to grow it outside over winter, but it does well in the summer. I have a sunny window, a grow light, and different methods of watering, i.e. wicking pads, saucers, the usual stuff one does with indoor plants.
I thought they preferred dry; do you keep your wet? Maybe there is hope yet.
Rosemary can stand frost and a lot of wet, but perhaps I'm only lucky with it. I'm used to buying a small cheap potted rosemary in the supermarket, I use it in cooking and put the plant in a flowerbox. They grow like weeds and take over the whole box. When they become too big I give them to a friend who has got a garden - last time I looked at her garden one rosemary bush covered more than a square metre and was abour 60 cm high.
