ArrowWiz's Organic Veggie and Medical Herb Garden


Namaste Everybody,

Im starting this forum to put all of my treasures in one place. Some new things could be added weekly because my collection of natural healing herbs is not finish yet. Maybe one of you have something special in your garden that I may need

Everything in the list below has already sprouted. I have a rotating 2 shelf system here, lower shelf will be for germination, once they fill the ice cube trays I remove them and I use 8.5oz cups then placed on the second shelf until they will be moved to a 1 or 2gal. pot, then moved to the larger room to finish. Mostly every veggie I have will harvest around 150 days or less. Tumeric/ginger I will let go for 7 months or longer. All of my herbs will grow continuously with small harvest just to make medical juices. One of my favorites will be the PURPLE TOMATOES they are a hybrid mix between blueberries and strawberries so there filled with antioxidants.

All of my Herbs fight cancer, bacteria, and viruses. Also good for pain relief, anti depressants, kidney stones, blood cleansing, diabetics & heart disease.

Ok heres a list of all the veggies and herbs growing in my garden:

Sugar Cane
Creeping thyme (Medical, eatable)
Borage (Medical)
Bitter Melon (Medical)
Sweet Basil
Royal Chatenay Carrots
Moss Curled Parsley
Cilantro
Chanca Piedra (Medical)
Moringa Tree (Medical)
Tumeric (Medical)
Ginger (Medical)
Pineapple Mint (Medical)
Purple Tomatoes (Medical)
Sweet Potatoes
Guinea hen weed (Medical)
Kalanchoe Pinnata (Medical)
Papaya Tree (Medical)
Apple tree
Dragon Fruit
Green Beans
Swiss Chard
Habanero Peppers
Hot Peppers
Sweet Peppers
Jalapeno Peppers


My soil mix: Pro-mix, coco coir, perlite, vermiculite

Fertilizers: Vitamin B1, fish ferts grow/bloom, Seaweed, amino acids, molasses

Lights;6500k 4ft 4 bulb florescent T5 HO light, 4x 150w Agro plant bulbs 2700k, 4x 23w CFL's 6500k

You've got a good looking set-up there, Wiz.
Looks like you are keeping some great records of all that you're doing, too.

What a great selection of plants, The grow area looks awesome too. This obviously isn't your first try at grow lights. I'm looking forward to seeing everything grow this winter.

Thanks Pink, Im still working on getting a few if I could find them. Im looking to add Chaney root and Dog Blood plant to my medical herbs. I will have to get them imported as well.

As for the grow lights, ive used them all mostly. And I just stuck with moderate fixtures and lighting. They do the same as the high tech claims. And if your not into nanometers, light spectrum's with building your own light etc, then moderate is perfect. Best way to grow indoors is by saving money. Ill upload a pic of my bulbs I use. I put my 400w MH/HPS light up for now until the snow hits. That will keep my house warm so I wont have to use my heaters. Right now im at about 600w spread out threw my indoor garden. The Agro lights easly covers a 2x2 area but at a height of 4 to 5ft it will cover 2x4. So for full coverage I use 2 agro bulbs that covers 4x4. $7/bulb. I compare these bulbs to the sun with a output power of a MH/HPS. They actually feed the plants calcium etc. It build the plants cells all together with a faster growth rate.

Im only writing all of this because I want this forum to be very informative. I know your a reader so I hope you dont mind lol.

Have you ever heard of shaking your indoor plants to get them to thicken up?


This is an actual process taught to indoor growers, to thicken soft weak stems. Outdoors, there is wind, so the stems naturally thicken up on their own, to be able to stand up to the force.


Indoors however, there is no wind, so soft weak growth is often the result. A fan or the process of shaking your plants once a day, will simulate wind and the plant will grow much stronger and thicker in response.


I often throttle my indoor plants!

lol, oh the torture. Even though plants like being man handled a bit. Yea Ive heard of doing that but instead I just get a mini clamp fan to put in the grow space to blow them around. Moringa trees grow lanky the reason why there called drum stick trees so its there natural state. I just want them to thicken up sooner. So silica will do the trick in a weeks time. But the fan is always on.

I have a pretty good controlled inside grow. only thing im missing right now is a pressure mist bottle. Easier to water all of these plants.

I wont let them get to big. I will keep them in 1 gallon or 3 gallon pots one or two may be put into a 5gal pot for a more outside effect. They will be placed in my den area. Im going to make it into a outside tropical kind of feel. And all of the plants will be eatable. I always think ahead before I do anything
