Cool! [thumb]
All I needed was a bottle of "Hidden Valley Ranch" and I could have had a nice salad!

No problem Weezie!!
Ya, it's been quite a bit of work, but the hardest part is scheduling the veggies! lol I try to have it so something gets picked every week. I have alot of time on my hands. I'm on disability, and have a small child at home, so I'm home all the time. This is what I do to pass the time away while my wife is at work. I've always done veggies, and recently started trying flowers, however I am having some problems with the flowers, but I'm working on it! lol They depend more on the light cycle than veggies do. With most of the veggies, you can put them under 12/12 right away. Therefore I've only ever needed a small cupboard for stuff like tomatoes and beans, to get them buy on a different light cycle until they're ready for 12/12. However, almost all flowers require specific light schedules. So I've had some relly nice flower plants, but no flowers on them yet lol. Oh well, I got a whole life time to figure it out!!

Just planted a whole new crop yesterday. Corn, Lettuce, celery, beans, onions and tomatoes, and watermelon, along with some more flowers. I'll have some pics once they get a little bigger. The ones I posted are all doing great. Took down the lettuce the other day. That stuff was FUNKY. Never seen anything grow like that. I got 2 heads from one seed! wierd.....

Any recent photos? I just started and i had some questions for you.
by noneofyourbusiness on December 16, 2005 12:52 PM
Sure, here's a few.  -

That's all I got for now. I switched to just indoor plants. Too much work all the time doing veggies. I also switched to 400W lights instead, cheaper on the hydro.

To answer your PM, you can do almost anything indoors. I've done lots of stuff. As long os you have he room to grow it, go ahead. If you start to run out of room (ceiling), some plants, like tomatoes, can be trained to grow low, by either cutting the top off, or bending the stalk down.
I wouldn't suggest the corn, unless you have allot of room. It looked coo, but I didn't realize the plination requirements of corn. You have to grow it in bulk, in order for it to polinate correctly, and get good corn. I only got one ear of corn from 3 plants.

Hope this helps!

By the way, does anyone have any suggestions for my rubber plant? I can't get it to stop growing, so I want to clone it, and start over. But I'm having problems clonning it. They keep dying. I've tried putting it right into soil. I've tried leaving it in water until roots sprout. I've tried 3 different kinds of rooting hormones. Nothing seems to work. Anyone with any experience??

I'm very tempted by your pineapple. Or at least I think it is a pineapple. I like the way the fronds look. I need to trash my tomato plants that I drowned. Ho hum, I just can't do it yet. But soon.

Although it does look axactly like a pinaple, it's not. I'm not sure of the name of it, but it's a tropical plant, that lives for hundreds of years. I've had it about 5 years now, it's about 7 years old.

I thought it was a pinapple also at first. lol

Love your Sago palm (Cycas cirinalis). [Cool] They are not true palms but Cycads, which are among the oldest plants on earth and have unchanged for millions of years.

by noneofyourbusiness on December 18, 2005 01:57 AM
"Cycas cirinalis", that's what it was. lol. I used to know that, I had the tag it came with. As for the rest of them, I don't really know the names of them. They're mostly plants I got from friends that were dying. The only ones I know are the Jade plant, the rubber plant, and the ivy. lol If you all can help with the rest, feel free! lol

I'll put up some better pictures of each plant later today so you can all help me identify them. Then I can make up new tags and I'll never forget again! lmao
