Re: Red Variegated Basjoo

When I was about 5 years old, my father came home and said, "I bought a new red car. Come out on the street and see." When I saw it, it was, in fact, maroon. My disappointment was enough to make...

Re: Misting system during hot weather ok for everyday?

IMO ... About 3 times during the heat of the day. But what you are really doing is cooling the plant and the upper soil, not watering the plants. So excess water running off the plants is not...

Re: River Rock Mulch?

The plants will get use to the full sun but it's better to gradually get them use to it.

Re: Container PH Check

There's not enough soil in the pot to be sending some off to be PH tested. By the time you replace what was taken out, a test would be useless. Besides ,,, at the price of a test just buy a...

Thanks so much for the advice!

Re: Hauling banana tree plants ?
