Grow light for succulent cuttings.

posted by: Nastydave on 10.16.2012 at 12:09 pm in Cacti & Succulents Forum

Hello, I have 2 ten inch trays with 10 to 15 cuttings in each. they are at a window that gets decent light but I would like them to get some more. I have a lamp with a reading light that is next to the table with the succulents. The reading light is about 2' above the trays. I don't plan in buying a fixture but I would like to put a grow light in for morning and evening sun. My question is would it be effective or just a waste of money? Should I get the"flood"style bulb or a CFL? Any advice would be great it's a fairly new hobby with Cuttings I pinched from Walmart.

Ginger indoors?

posted by: greenlarry on 10.11.2012 at 09:54 am in Ginger Forum

Hi all
I tried growing a piece of rhizome years ago but I was in a tiny appartment back then and it never happened, but Id like to try again in my house. Im in england so cant plant them outdoors, but Im worried that the plants get quite large! Is ginger as a houseplant a viable option?

Will foliage return, if...

posted by: hopefulauthor on 10.07.2012 at 01:00 pm in Cacti & Succulents Forum


Wondering, if leaves from Crown of Thorns, 'both milii and Thais are cut off, will they return...

If clipping can be done, and foliage grows back, should lower leaves only be removed, or top to bottom?

If, in the future, the only leaves that resume are new, upper leaves, I'd have to veto the idea.

Thanks in advance..Toni

Plant ID

posted by: shellie021 on 09.14.2012 at 01:03 pm in House Plants Forum

Hi. I recently fell in love with this plant at the supermarket. There is no card or any information on it at all, and neither of the two people that work in the department have any idea what it is. It's in a hanging pot sitting in a wicker stand. The leaves are soft...not meaty. I would love to buy it. I've been trying to ID it for almost a week. I just want to make sure that where I want to put it will be okay, and what care is needed. I hope someone can help me. Thanks in advance. :)

Geranium Mosquito Shoo so leggy!

posted by: chueh on 06.26.2010 at 12:48 pm in House Plants Forum

My geranium mosquito shoo has grown very fast. Look at it. It's just one year-old, but it grows like crazy,not the way I like. I would really like it bushy but not leggy. This is supposed to be a house plant, which means that it shouldn't need so much light, right? However, anything that grows leggy must be really craving for light. What can I do? Please advice. Thanks

favorite trees and why

posted by: midwestjeff on 12.27.2006 at 07:46 am in Trees Forum

What is you favorite tree and why?
!. Because everyone else has them?
2. Because they are status symbols?
3. Because they attract wildlife?
4. Because they grow fast?
5. Because they increase property value?
6. Because you feel that for generations to come they will be enjoyed?
7. Because of their lack of problems, disease, insect, storm damage, and hardiness ratings?
