Pretty close... I’m in Turnersville
Phred. Thanks for a great lesson!
Thanks for a splendid and intersting thread! Very informa- and instructive!
Nice looking plants! I like how you did the compots. Where did you get the plastic grid that you placed on top of the egg crate?
The plastic mesh on top of the egg-crate is from a craft store. It’s a plastic canvas used to sew yarn on for making crafts. It comes in an assortment of sizes and shapes. Walmart also sells it in their craft department. It’s works good to make your own baskets to hold smaller medium... sew it together with fishing line.
Thanks! I bought some of the mesh today and converted a couple of my compot trays for the next flask I get.
Nice lessons, ty!
Thanks for your very informative explanation.
Phred, have to tried using a heat mat with your plants? If so does it help? For some growing media I think heat mats are almost essential, but your pots are quite shallow perhaps a heat mat might dry the bark too fast?
I do use a heat mat in the winter some times. Most of my compots are on metal shelves with a light underneath that lights the shelf below it. That produces a little heat which seems to be beneficial especially when the room is colder. On occasion I have more compots than will fit, I only have 16’ of compot/seedling shelf... lol, so I use the heat mat for the overflow in the winter. My heat mat has a metal frame over it so the plants don’t actually sit directly on it.
