Hey Holly,

Yes I keep my lights on year round. I use to have a house with a balcony so summer time all plants were outside during the day. I dont like dealing with pest so I keep them inside since I dont have a balcony or back yard for that matter.

RC responded on his desert rose thread so all is well.

I'm not into genetically modified foods either....precisely why I love heirloom varieties so much.

I have been meaning to read through these pages. I will later today.

Think it is an amazing idea, WizG and I have many things growing in our garden that have medicinal properties or atleast health benefits.

I grew what is called "Yakón" this year. It is a potato like root vegetable from South Africa. It has a different flavor. Like an Apple and somewhat like a Pear.
Supposed to have digestinal benefits and the leaves can be eaten also.

Here is this weeks update. The surprise I have for you guys isnt how I wouldve wanted to look fully only thing missing would be the my medical plants that is listed above in a previous post. But they will be here by the end of the week so YYAYAYAY!!!!!


oK OK.... HERE WE HAVE THE MAIN GROW ROOM WHERE THE PLANTS WILL FINISH. BUT I WILL BE MOVING SOME THINGS IN AND OUT AS I HAVE ANOTHER PLACE SET UP AS WELL. HAVE TO MAKE ROOM FOR MY SURPRISE. THE 1 GAL. GROW BAGS ARE PERFECT TO SQUEEZE AND FIT EVERYTHING IN IF SPACE IS LIMITED!


IMG_20141103_203303[1].jpg



I ADDED SOME REGULAR POTATOES TO THE MIX WAITING FOR THAT TO GROW SLIPS, AND I HAVE ANOTHER SWEET POTATO GROWING SLIPS ALREADY. TOP SIDE IS PAPAYA SEEDLINGS. PICKING THE STRONGEST GROWERS AND BEST TRAITS FROM HERE. AN AVOCADO WITH MORE GINGER IN BACK WAITING TO SPROUT!

IMG_20141103_205106[1].jpg




MORE PAPAYA SEEDLINGS WITH STRONG GROWING MORINGA TREES. I ADDED SILICA TO THICKIN THERE STOCKS. LOOKING GOOD.

MORE PEPPERS, SWISS CHARD, AND BORAGE WITH BASIL.

IMG_20141103_205139[1].jpg


HERE WE HAVE GUINEA HEN WEED WHICH IS STARTING TO TAKE OFF NICE GREEN FOLIAGE, WITH 2 MORINGA TREES IN 1GAL. POTS.

IMG_20141103_205212[1].jpg



GRAND FINALE!!!!!! I ADDED A HYDRO BUBBLE SYSTEM WHICH I BUILD MY SELF. TWO PLANTS CAN FIT IN EACH BASKET OR 1 PLANT FOR BIGGER PLANTS. AIR TUBES WHICH GOES THREW THE BASKETS AND RELEASES AIR BUBBLES TO GIVE ROOTS O2. UNDER THE HOOD WHERE THE WATER AND NUTRIENTS GO THERE IS A BUBBLE WAND THAT I ALSO MADE ABOUT 42" IT BENDS ANY WAY I NEED IT TO & IT ALSO RELEASES O2 INTO THE WATER WHICH WILL MAKE THE ROOTS EXPLODE EVEN MORE ONCE THEY ARE SWIMMING AROUND INSIDE. AND THE 541GAL/HR AIR PUMP!!!!!!

I WILL FILL THIS BABY UP WITH WATER UNTIL ITS ABOUT 3" INTO THE NET POTS THEN ADD A HYDRO MEDIUM AND ADD THE PLANTS OF MY CHOICE. THE NEW MEDICAL PLANTS WILL GO IN HERE!

IMG_20141103_205044[1].jpg
