Default Re: 2015-06 Namwa count contest!!

But again if Richard has been pumping up the nutrients
on that Namwa esp with that fertilizer hes been promoting
plus seaweed and fish emulsion plus hugging and peeing....

All of you are TOAST!!!!!

I found this post by Jared
back in May of 07 on a Pitogo thread...

I just went out today and put liquid fish and liquid seaweed at the base of my blooming plant.

I keep the hose nearby and water it throughout the day (its burning hot here at times).

Leave the pups on it for now, don't kill any roots.
Some growers like to top off the pups (you know, like behead them) to restrict their growth at this point but I can't bring myself to do that with mine!

Leave any green leaves on the plant, don't cut off any dying leaves that still have moisture or green in them.

You can also cut back any old dry parts of the pseudostem to reveal the green chlorophyll behind. This will obviously assist with additional energy production, too.
But only cut off totally dry material, leave the part where it's not dessicated yet.

Pad the mat with old leaves and compost.. it does a few things including retaining moisture by blocking the drying winds and sun, it adds nutrients, and block weeds from making the nutrient rich mat their new home.

Give it a hug every day.

And pat yourself on the back for all the patience and hard work.


>>>Some of these classic posts are sooo full of priceless information for newbies like me. They really need to be resurrected<<<
Cheers!

It would be good if Richard can confirm if hes been using
the PGR growth hormone stimulant on this baby.
Rather on just the count, we should also have a blue ribbon
for the heaviest bunch/fullest by weight!

If they have fishing competitions on TV from different lakes
and different times, why cant we have it here also?

Richard its time to showcase your PGR product and the results!!!
Im rooting for ya!

Susan Lau is predicting 210.
I think Susan might have an insider
info re the PGR use dont you think?

The rest of you are TOAST if Richards

WoW!
Really its over?
Thats it?

You still have unopened flower there.
Why stop @11hands?
Is it because you have 50% less fingers in hand#11 vs 10?

Are you going to let it mature on the tree?

Thanx!
