Dude - I suggested to the woman this morning that she needed to start feeding her houseplants some microbes to help them out and explained how they work and she’s interested. Next time I water her stuff I’m gonna give them a blast of FishSh!t and Recharge and let her see if she notices a difference. I can in the Birds of Paradise and Queen of The Night I’ve already been dosing. My pineapple too!
Once she sees the difference she’ll be in on buying microbes! At least then I’ll have a steady supply guaranteed! LOL!
The gal who gave me those clones that ended up herming (not her fault) asked me what I had been feeding them that they ended up almost 5 feet tall. I told her about fish shit and she got a sample bottle for her cactus. It’s 5 years old (at least that’s how long it’s been in her care) and after the fish shit is the first time it’s sprouted new growth.
Nice!! But that is the wrong soil for a cactus!! LOL!
I love cacti! I’ve got a couple of tall, straight, fuzzy ones I’m up-potting this spring that I’m gonna try to turn to monsters.
Cactus are better at scale! LOL!
I’ll get a picture of my big one tomorrow.
It was about 4 inches when we got it.
25 years ago…LOL!
It’s probably the dirt it was growing in when she found it if I had to guess. she’s self-proclaimed “pretty hippie.” Which means hippie enough to leave a plant in its natural soil she found it in but not hippie enough to just leave it there and not put it in a planter
I did my outside garden this summer that passed with all my runoff water from everyplace lol. I was shocked at how it exploded. Not as many red tomatoes as I wanted to see but man were they everywhere on the plants lol. Next year I have a way better spot to plant them at where the sun hit for most of the day it is out. Hell I might even drop a clone in the middle of the tomatoes since it’s all hidden behind my deck and only 1 neighbor would see it and he comes to me anyways lol. He loves he can see it on the tree before he smokes it lol.
