Re: What did you harvest today (other plants)?

Regarding the unwanted rotation, if you used File Explorer to "rotate" the JPEG file to an upright position, it is probably the fault of Windows 10. The methods used differ between Windows 10 and...

Re: What Are You Listening To?

Do you have a southern accent? If so, do you prefer the songs in which Patsy's voice is more northernish? Those songs just seem clearer to me.

I guess I have a Chicago accent, but I don't hear...

Re: The Effect of Uniconazole on Dwarf Namwah

It's so that it will fit into my greenhouse during the winter and possibly fruit there.

I bought uniconazole (I misspelled it in the title) on Ebay about 3 years ago. There were many sellers, but,...

Only the one on the left was given a soil drench of 1 ppm uniconazole on 12/16/18. The plants were identical at the time, in identical pots. The treated plant was repotted on...

Re: Guttation

Guttation is a sign of good health because it requires a healthy root system.

Re: Plastic pot or clay pot for super dwarf cavendish?

Clay pots build up algae and other crud on the outside and are difficult to clean. I haven't used them in decades because they are a pain.

The only time clay shows an advantage over plastic pots is...
