>>3065508They've sprouted! They're growing!Gonna be delicious basil.The majory hasn't sprouted yet, does anyone have an idea as to why?
Are there Any vegetable plants or food plants (besides fruit trees) that don't die after they produce?also are these types of pots any good for growing things or are they a meme?
>>3065515grapes? fruit trees? strawberries?
>>3065515Jeb has featured a similar one in several of his videos, seem to be OK for small herbs at least.>>3064983was thinking of getting a variegated hedera with white edges aswell.
Basic stuff, but so pretty~
too many cactus links, and why the fuck would we have links specifically for Zantedeschia and Anthuriums.overall looks like a clusterfuck and this is the reason we don't use links.
snipped kalanchoe and stuck 2 branches (right side) down in a pot with new soil to fill it out a bit.
>>3065612links are good, just not this unorganised mess of muh cactiwho even needs 6 links for cacti, you just give em water once per year and then ignore himthat being said, my mom once manage to kill a cacti by giving it too little water so there's thatwe need links for small scale gardening, herb and food gardens
>>3065654There are way too many links. Anons agreed that we need just generalized resources links and that any discord link must go at the exact bottom or no dice. This is too full of cacti.
>>3065665Some don't even have links at all, like the almanac. OP was too busy rushing to make the thread early with shit links.
HEy /plant/these niggas stress me out
>>3065654they're good? almost all of them are shit literally no one will ever use, who comes here thinking they're gonna grow fucking Zantedeschias specificially.the orchid link is also retarded, all orchids are beginner tier plants, epiphytes aren't hard to grow they just require more frequent watering.>>3065665the discord should be posted as a comment in the thread if at all, preferably not at all.>overgrown hugelkulturturning it into a habitat for pleione in the autumn so I don't really care.
>>3065674WHAT IS THAT
Is there a list of good trees for each zone? I'm on zone 8a/8b and want to plant some fruit and shade trees. There are mostly oaks on my property and some pines.
>>3065542>tfw saw some hedera helix sagittifolia growing on some blocks at my aunt's property, was too busy weedwhacking to take someOh well maybe next time.
>>3065665>and that any discord link must go at the exact bottom or no dice.It shouldn't go at all.
>>3065675oh no links in general are goodand maybe the last three, i kinda like orchids..
>>3065750>hedera helix sagittifoliathose look like lil spaceships, pretty cool. might be a bit narrow for white variegated tho, all the green almost disappears, otherwise i'd get one.
>>3065675>the discord should be posted as a comment in the thread if at all, preferably not at all.Anon please don't make concessions for discordfags. People tried telling them to post their links in comments before and they ignored it. Even if they did comply it's only a matter of time before they try for the OP again. They get nothing now regardless of them trying to weevil in how it should go at the bottom of an OP post.
>>3065768hmm. might be some around that fits what i want in that brownish pot
I bought two pandan rhizomes online and shoved them in potting soil. I've been watering regularly and applied a light dusting of fertilizer. I didn't use any rooting hormone powder. Is it still alive? At least one of them is I think.
>>3065766I doubt there's anyone visiting this board that doesn't know how to attract pollinating insects.that's grade school biology.>>3065768hedera helix 'erecta' is the only good looking hedera.discuss.
lil baby kaffir limesalso have lil baby meyer lemons too
>>3065791yeah it's still kind of mediocre, there technically aren't any good looking hedera.
my wasabi arrived.bit abused due to transport.hope it's winter hardy here lul.
one of my larger E. maritimums.repotted them, hope they don't die, they can't cope with being repotted very well so it's always a gamble.also they struggle if their tap root hits the bottom of the pot.
>>3065724Jaboticaba tree.Its fruit resembles the fungus Daldinia concentrica.
The ants...ALL THE AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANTSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!
>>3065809Don't they need very specific conditions? IIRC running water amongst other things?
>>3065956pebbles and running water is what my pond is.
Can /an/ help me identify this fern?Collected from the wild in my parent's woods. There are hundreds of these in there. Mid-Atlantic USA area. I've had it for about 2 months now and it seems healthy
This guy flowered for the first time last night.Looks great and the flowers actually smell good
>>3065963Aha, die gast! We hebben in de /aq/ over vissen & salamanders geluld. Kleine wereld, lol.Succes alleszins! Lijkt me wel tof om echte wasabi te kunnen kweken, ik verhuis volgend jaar en heb daar ook een vijvertje, mss is er op termijn wel iets van te maken.
>>3065979denk niet dat het moeilijk is ze te kweken, ze groeien alleen traag en houden niet van zon.weet alleen niet hoe het in de winter gaat, maar waar ze weg komen is het kouder dan hier dus dat zal wel meevallen.
>>3065963Is that a dragonfly ornament? Cute
i ate an elderberry am i going to die?
>>3066039>frogposter is a fucking moronEvery single time.
Both bushes depicted are the same variety.What the fuck happened? How can I rehabilitate the second one? There is some foliage on the back. I cut into what was "dead" and still found green tissue.
is it better for tomato plant leaves to be darker or lighter?pretty new to this and decided to start growing tomato's in autumn lolanyways the ones I have inside are larger and have lighter green leaves and stalks, the ones outside are much smaller, have darker green leaves and more purple stalks
>>3066250Outside is better, for everything. There is no such thing as an indoor plant.The plants you have outside are getting lots more light so they are manufacturing more chlorophyll to use it - hence the darker leaves.The plants you have inside are pale from lack of sunlight and you perceive them as being "bigger" because they are wasting their energy stretching to try to find more light. This is called etiolation.
>>3065974need pictures of the undersides and any other parts of the plant.
>>3066118there's probably nothing you can do except get a new one. green cambium is not a good way to determine a prognosis; it could be unstoppably shutting down. as to cause, what is it? how long ago was it planted? how long ago did this start happening?
>>3065786>I doubt there's anyone visiting this board that doesn't kbow how to attract pollinating insectsis this bugguyposting? what kind of reply even is this? i doubt even 5% knows how to attract pollinating insects except muh flowersstop being a cunt bugguyyou can overcome your autism
>>3065963>has an actual pond>wastes previous wetland space on plants in plastic potsanon i...why would you do that?
>>3065979>>3065985>kankerwtf zoveel dutchies in zo'n kleine threadwss is een van jullie bugguy..
>>3066316Unfortunately sometimes we're forced to. I've determined I can grow about ~1.5 square feet of plants indoors in my setup of a few 18 watt LEDs, but I'm really pushing it and will fit more lights in as soon as I can afford it. You CAN grow plants inside with lighting. >>3066250 Could supplement the tomato plant light in the window or grow it entirely under lights if they wanted.
>>3066387are there any guides to some decent lighting set ups? do you guys generally have them running 24/7?would I need to worry about house fires or excessive electricity consumption?
>>3066407Different plants have different needs for lighting schedules, they've evolved to trigger flowering at certain times of year. The general opinions I've seen are that 24/7 isn't optimal, 18/6 or 20/4 are the highest you'd want to go for intensive lighting.There's tons of info online but the basic options are florescent, LED, and HPS and other lights which run rather hot. There's some typical bulb LED grow lights which fit into standard fixtures and seem decent from my trial with them. It's something that requires a ton of research and shopping around. LEDs are very efficient, so they'll bump the bill up a bit on their own, but if you went and replaced all your floro/incandescent house lights with them you'd have seen a drop making up for a few more anyways.
>>3066415Also I wouldn't don't worry about house fires with florescent or LED lights. They will scorch plants too close to them though.
>>3065508Can anybody identify this plant for me? I rescued it from a skip and it is looking pretty unhappy with lots of browning on its leaves.
>>3066430Dracaena draco aka the dragon plant
>>3066434Looks like it, thanks anon
>>3066430Dracaena marginata. Brown tips are from chronic underwatering.
>>3066039no, just age considerably
s plant came from my grandma’a funeral a few days ago. It looked wilted upon arrival so I put it outside in heavy rain and forgot about it during a hot day yesterday. The soil was dry so I just watered it and brought it inside. Is it past the point of no return? Anything else I can do to help bring it back? And what is it?
Growing wild chamomile is fun.
>>3066026ye, they're vintage also.>>3066350sorry almost forgot everyone in your social circle is just as retarded as you.again, this is grade school biology.>>3066354there's no soil there so can't put in plants.

>>3066598Please don't give chinks any more reasons to poach our plants.https://www.nbclosangeles.com/news/local/South-Koreans-Charged-in-LA-Plant-Poaching-Case-510708781.html
>>3066682"At dusk we reached the location where Miguel had seen hundreds of Geohintonia mexicana and Aztekium hintonii years before when he was last there. I was looking forward to seeing these “hundreds” like some online photos showed. Sadly, unscrupulous people have been aggressively poaching the plants from this location for many years now. Miguel told me the biggest offenders come from the Czech Republic and China. Even though both Geohintonia mexicana and Aztekium hintonii are protected species, the poachers have honed their skills perfectly to bribe and sneak their loot out of Mexico. I expected to find a heavily populated area, instead I only found one of each plant! That was it. And I found those two plants only because I am good at Easter egg hunts and climbed to get the photographs."http://www.marriedtoplants.com/palms/brahea-decumbens-brahea-dulcis-growing-gypsum-outcrop/yeh, chinks also scam people all the time with seeds, and fake, poorly faked photoshop pics
>>3066118is that buxus sempervirens?sorry to tell you that there's a new illness of buxus that is killing them all.
>>3065795this is a casus belliI cant disagree more
>>3065508>the state of those links.I know some anons wanted the links back, but you could have put some effort into it OP. You're always so lazy. I know it's you from before because you still left that damned linkless Farmer's Almanac greentext in for about the 8th time.And why so many cactus links? And you've removed the Plant Illustrations site, that was one of the best links!And no Thread Bee?! What in the absolute fuck?I mean, I go away for a few days and it all goes to pot. I have no more words.
>>3066692it literally looks worse than the wild species that grows everywhere here.I like my arch tho.
>>3066695succulent growers are the lowest tier gardeners.
>>3066699factically false, every hedera looks good. That includes ofc algeriensis, or whatever. It will give back a wild, vivid atmosphere of danger and mistery to any overly cultured and fancy dutch or french garden. also I'm gonna make one of those archs someday at the front door UwU
Is it possible to keep a nepenthes (Bloody Mary) alive outdoors? If so, what sort of location(s) could it survive in?
>>3066705make sure you trim it back every few years or it'll collapse during a storm.
>>3066706Depends on your climate. Hanged a bunch of hybrids on a tree in zone 6a a couple of weeks ago and so far they're doing perfectly fine and pitchering as usual. Just pick a spot that gets filtered sunlight and put them back inside before temps start falling too low.
>>3065508Been having a tough time identifying this fern in my backyard up until the fronds split up top and on the sides unusually. I managed to narrow it down to dryopteris filix-mas 'cristata', a dwarf variety of male fern with split fronds. I can't seem to find anything closer in resemblance so just wondering if I'm right.
One of my sunflowers has darker leaves than all the others. I find it odd since they are all in such close proximity.
>>3066743>filtered sunlightNot really any spot in my garden where that exists. There are some trees at the bottom of my garden but the foliage is very thick and that whole area is basically in permanent full shade.Can nepenthes really not stand being in full sun at all? Would it be okay if the exposure to full sun was limited to only a certain number of hours per day, with the spot otherwise being in the shade? If so, what's the max hours you think it could tolerate full sun without becoming kill?>zone 6aI'm in zone 8 according to Wikipedia.
Here is my garden tomatoes salad stuff dill cucumbers and rhubarb
>>3065786>>3065795>>3066692>>3066699In my opinion, hedera helix sagittifolia is the most aesthetically pleasing hedera in terms of vines and not an upright shrub like hedera helix erecta (which is nice though).From what ive seen it seems to spread much slower than common hedera helix and also stays much lower to the ground as it takes longer for mounding growth habits to occur.
>>3066700I enjoy my succulents. Don't bully them.
>>3066700No I'm pretty sure you occupy the lowest tier by yourself.You spend more time being an asshat than helping others so I can only assume it's because you're too shit a gardener to help anyone. Imagine bragging about intentional ignorance and calling yourself anything but trash.You'd make the best plantman dying and rotting in your garden to feed the plants with catshit.
>>3066772>8even betterI would only put it in morning full sun, dawn to 11ish. If you don't have a spot you can just strategically shade it with other plants or some cloth.
>>3066790nice collection anon. don't pay any attention to bugguy, he's perpetually desperate for attention.
>>3066801>>3066804This strange vendetta for bugguy isn't any better for the thread, you know. Calm down. He posts content and his pond updates have been enjoyable. If he leaves a message that you dislike it's as simple as not responding instead of shitting up the thread with insults.
>>3066803Alright. I have a spot in mind but I thought about it too late in the day today to check exactly how much sun it gets. I'll keep an eye on it tomorrow and see if it seems to match up with your advice.Thanks.
About the only good thing that can be said for Hedera is that it isn't Ficus fucking pumila. That shit is the worst.
>>3066783be wary, it can't handle pruning very well.won't die, but looks terrible for ages after.>>3066801it's funny because it's literally my work.>>3066790pretty sure I complimented your other plump sucs the other day.
>>3066808I asked him to ID a plant for me in the last thread,and he came right back with a correct ID. What an asshole huh?
>>3066819You did, so I know to not take the succ banter seriously. >>3066821Unbelievable. How does he keep getting away with this?
>>3066821considering he basically avatarfags, being identifiable in a sea of anons, yes
>>3066764where are you located
>>3066816Im a little sad that pumilla is such a faggot with Frost.
>>3066841Pacific northwest.Muh maidenhair
>>3066819Thanks for the extra info on the sagittifolia, I'm >>3065750 so I don't have any in my yard and its probably for the best.
>>3066870it's not a native species then.finding the species of a cultivated fern is a pain in the ass.
>>3066691>buxus sempervirensLooks a lot like it to me; I'll have to see something more direct before I make the final decision, then.>>3066348I'll cut off all of the diseased/dead tissue and see what's up. I think it is about 6 years old, and this is the first year it happened.
>>3066886Yeah, i figured it wasn't native. But there's not many ferns with split fronds that look like that so I'm pretty sure it's some variety of crested male fern, maybe not Cristata Martindale though.
>>3066925in a single year? wew lad...the fungus is called cylindrocladium buxicola. As a precautionary measure I would remove the diseased specimen, every root, every leaf in the soil etc.
>>3066925Here you go lad, seeing as nobody ITT apparently knows what Box Blight is.https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?pid=96It's very common. The main cause is poor garden hygiene.What I mean is that it's very important old leaves aren't allowed to sit at the base of the plant as they are a great incubator for the disease.So when you clip them, make sure to clean up the clippings thoroughly.Also you should clear out any shed leaves from time to time, at least once per year.Ultimately, there is no cure, and infected plants should be disposed of, ideally with fire.
>>3066808what a boring bunch of plants
Can anyone help me identify this plant? It grows kind of wild around my yard (Northeast US climate), and is fragrant, very similar to oregano, but the leaves are very narrow. I also looked up some oregano varieties, and none of them look like this, so now I'm really confused what it could be, if it's a wild edible or some cultivated herb that I don't know about.
>>3067209Thyme? What does it taste like
>>3067209It's a Salvia or in the family at least, which explains why you suspected Oregano.Try this site. It's helped me in the past for ID.https://uswildflowers.com/
>>3067222Definitely not thyme, unless there's some wild thyme with long leaves. The leaves kind of remind me of rosemary (but the leaves are thinner and it has a completely different taste).>>3067224I'll check that out, thanks.
>>3067008feel free to post your own plants.
>>3066954>>3066999Would the fungus have completely smashed the one plant without visibly harming the other?
>>3067209>bee photobombus in action
Bought some Bee Balm, Lemon Balm, Catnip, Rosemary and Sage seeds.Is it too late to sow them around this time?Zone 6.
>>3067463Pretty sure there's no zone 6 south of the equator.
Ive got some mandarin and orange tree seeds in a cup and bag covering it. some of them are starting to shoot out. once it shoots out am I supposed to remove the bag or should I just keep it on til it grows to a certain size?
>>3067463Northern, we just had Midsummer here..
>>3067209it's Satureja montana.>>3067429ye.there's also caterpillars that target buxus now.glad because it's a shitty boomer tier plant.
>>3067599>glad because it's a shitty boomer tier plantbuxus hedging is nice if done well. good for formal gardens.also, it grows wild as a tree in the south of my country, it's a really nice tree.
>>3067606osmanthus is literally superior in every single way.buxus is the shrub equivalent of a lawn, even if they look nice you still know they're shit.
>>3067608Osmanthus is very nice.My favourite hedging plant is Yew though.
>>3067611beech hedges look great, they're not a thing in america though.
>>3067616Beech and Hawthorn both make really nice deciduous hedges. Beech always gets whitefly though, so when you clip it you get all their dusty bug shit all over you.Anything is better than Cherry Laurel though. Fuck that shit.
>>3067623hedera racks are always covered with dust too.main issue with laurel is that mid/north europeans are pussies about pruning them, in France and Italy they use them as hedging and just chainsaw some large chunks out of it every year so it keeps that fresh green look.
>>3067608I prefer ceanothus to osmanthus. I thought it was somewhat picky but absolutely not. Very Hardy and spectacular in full Bloom. I know some people dont like the smell (cat urine)... It doesn't remind me a bad smell at all.
>>3067658this is the biggest ceanothus I've ever seen here.they're not picky when it comes to temperatures, far hardier than people make them out to be, but if the roots get wet they'll die during dormancy, pretty much only grows in sandy areas in full-sun.
>>3067658>>3067662I used to look after a garden where entire front of the house was covered with a well trained ceanothus. It looked amazing, and was nice to trim. I didn't make it, it was already there when I took on the job.I've never seen a free-standing Ceanothus hedge anywhere though.Great plant for bees and butterflies too.
>>3067668I've never seen them as hedge in general, winters are probably far too wet here, we get no snow or ice, only endless rain.I prefer a well-constructed fence with climbing plants over hedges anyway, there's a lot more good looking vines than there are hedge-plants.
>>3067662Very pretty. Even has an interesting texture. Mine is about 1 meter (was about 20 cm not long ago). Always receives a little bit of sun. Yeah I think it likes to bake in the sun. I've read that It doesn't live more than 20 years. Meanwhile other hedges can live 10 times more... :/ I guess 20 years is okay.
>>3067679Their lifespan is shortened by their seed production, in a similar way to Broom (Cytisus), so a light trim after flowering can extend their lives by many years.
>>3067519Wow. Even La Riconada, the highest town in the Andes, only gets down to -10.3C/+13.5F on average in its coldest month.The northern hemisphere is retardedly cold. I don't understand how anyone can live north of California/Italy/Vietnam

>>3068274Sorry I didn't see that thread
>>3065508How the hell do I keep slugs out of my plants. Japan is humid as hell and they are everywhere. Does copper tape work?
>>3068450slug pellets.sprinkle them around your plants or put them in shallow saucers.
Hibiscus syriacusPlanted two starts from one bush, both about 6" tall, and another start that was only a couple of inches, about five years ago. They've definitely grown taller, and the one small start has spread like crazy. Im hoping for a large, dense bush.
>>3068457Flower from last year. The smaller start puts off a slightly different color as well.
>>3068457cut them back in the spring if you want them to become dense.else they're just gonna get lanky and then collapse during a storm.they're often grown against houses as a sort of creeping plant for that reason.
>>3068459Will I still get decent height? Or should I let them get a little taller before I start pruning back in spring? I'm hoping for something around 6'
>>3068450>>3068456slug pellets are useful, but just a reminder that you only need approx 2 pellets per square foot. normies often pile them up around the plants, which is a waste and actually just attracts more slugs.copper tape is very effective on pots, but can be expensive if you have a lot of pots or raised beds.slug traps are also very effective.just bury a jar in the soil with an inch of the top above the soil, then put some beer in the jar and leave it there.
>>3068459what country is this in? in the UK they grow well as free-standing shrubs, up to 8 feet high or so, and generally require no pruning except to restrict size.i've never seen one trained against a wall.
>>3068462it's mostly to train the interior branches to support it's weight.>>3068463>just bury a jar in the soil with an inch of the top above the soil, then put some beer in the jar and leave it there.and then be completely disgusted when you have to take it out.or leave it to rot and be completely disgusted by the smell every time you walk past it.god I wish my customers would stop doing that.>>3068465the netherlandsthey die constantly in the UK too, you must be living in a warmer coastal area.
>>3068463Every dead slug attracts more slugs.
>>3068469yeah, it's gross, but it works. just charge your customers a shit tax. i always add extra if they have things like dog shit in their gardens or i have to pick up all their fucking kids toys just to mow the lawn.>they die constantly in the UK too, you must be living in a warmer coastal areaI do, and all kinds of cool stuff grows here, but I used to live farther inland and they do fine there too.
>>3068450also, nematodes. i forgot about nematodes.
>>3068472they're trained against houses to benefit from the heat they give off during the winter, sometimes there's cages around them (like climbing roses) so they don't snap during storms.you mostly see those in older areas, the climate used to be colder here, we barely get snow nowadays.
>>3068480Now that I think about it, when I used to live farther inland, you only see Magnolia grandiflora as a wall-trained plant, and still quite rare, but down here on the coast they are a fairly common free-standing tree, and they flower better as well.People have Agave and Opuntia and Aloe in their gardens here, it's a weird place. The summers are cooler than inland, but the winters are very mild. It's always windy though.
>>3068484if it's always windy they tend to develope a thicker interior structure on their own during the active growing season.for inland areas they need additional support or be structurally trained.most people use the type of flower supports you often see with peonies for them.the wind also doesn't kill them but the twigs will snap at a separation point and ends up throwing their growing structure out of balance if you have to remove the snapped part completely.unsure what hardiness zone/climate anon is in but it's probably best if he does atleast some training if he wants a free-standing yet thick bush.
>>3068120this plant is raycistyoure a raycist
>>3068492>unsure what hardiness zone/climate anon is in but it's probably best if he does atleast some training if he wants a free-standing yet thick bush.Zone 6A. West facing, moderate wind conditions. Directly between my house and a rural county road, which is why tall, thick and dense is my end goal. I'll look in to basic pruning for the interior next spring, thanks.
>>3068501>tfw comfy zone 9b microclimate
>>30685039b is too warm for alpines.8 is perfect, allows you to create microclimates ranging from 6 to 9, maybe even 10.
>>3068504you can still have rock gardens down here, but using coastal plants instead of alpines. lots of sedums, mesembs etc. not many people do though. they take advantage of the climate to grow more 'tropical' stuff like palms and other boring shit.
>>3068510I know you can, but it'll never have the same feeling to it as a true alpines.it's easier to simulate warmer climates in lower zones than it is to simulate colder climates in higher zones.a lot of cool plants require a cold dormancy period.
in my garden
>>3066812Shit, the spot I thought of is turning out to get way more sun than I thought. I've been misting the plant to try and prevent damage from the sunlight but the water evaporates from the leaves in like 5 minutes flat.How likely is my nep to die if I leave it in this spot? I'd estimate it's in full sun from somewhere around sunrise until about 5pm.
What is this? I found some of them in my garden.
>>3068588if I had to guess I'd say Chelone obliqua but without location based on a single vague picture I can't do much.
>>3068591could also be Impatiens glandulifera if it's not a garden plant.loads of plants have similar structures when immature, so you can't really tell without location, conditions, and better pictures.
>>3068593>Impatiens glanduliferanot that anon, but that was my first thought. shit chokes up the rivers in my country.
>>3068591I'm in MD, USA
>>3068588looks like cherry
>>3068632does it fuck
>>3068622probably Impatiens glandulifera then, kill it.>>3068597saw some in the forest yesterday.
>>3068634correction, mom said its trash
>>3068635It doesn't look as serrated as those fuckers
>>3068659that's environmental, some are smooth.>cut my hedera racks.

>polish biologist names species after himself>name is absolutely indecipherable
I think my yard is infested by mulberries.
>>3068802still not as bad as the people who name obscure shrimp species.
>>3068802Ludwik Młokosiewicz?It's not that hard.
how will treelets even compete ?
Fucking leaf mining motherfuckers need to die.
>>3068834It's pronounced like Mwokosyevich right?
>>3068948yup, spot on.
no wonder my peace lily didnt want to grow, all these in one tiny pot. just gotta find new homes for most of em now.
>>3068987>buy a nice bushy rose>take it home to plant>remove it from pot>tfw the soil all falls off and it's just 5 unrooted twigsfml
kalanchoe snipped repotted.main one went to my brother, 2 branches stuck down in the new pot with the main plant and 3 more in separate pots.>>3068991damn. return it?
>>3068991this is why I repot every plant I buy.
>>3068852tfw 98% of those were wiped out by fucking boomers
I've been told that putting women's pills on lemon trees will make the lemons grow biggeris this true?would it work with weed?
>>3068991I recently brought 2 meilland roses that were purely a stump in a big, deep, pot. NO ROOTS AT ALL. Thanks God both survived.
*SUCKS THESE BERRIES LIKE THE SWEET DARK PANCAKE NIPPLES OF A BLACK BBW*
Is it true that a group of sunflowers is know as "panel"?
I found this berry in my backyard and opened it up (bottom left)What is it?
>>3069053I always thought it was a 'vincent' of sunflowers.
>>3069053Hell if I know I just grow them.
>>3068947Not sure which butterflies, moths, wasps, beetles and flies you're talking about.>>3068991Most roses are shipped from grower to seller bare-rooted.The sellers immediately stick them in pots and sell them as quick as they can.So when you pull your roses out of the pots they've only been in for five minutes the potting mix falls off them.If you buy a rose leave it in the pot until it's well and truly rooted.
I bought some razzmatazz chilli seeds.I'm planning on growing it inside since it's still winter here (Australia) but I'm looking to try some grow lights to supplement the window.now I was just wondering what sort of light do I need ? do I need a special bulb or do regular bulbs work decently? is it just a matter of leaving it under a desk lamp?
>>3069263Why would you buy grow lights and waste a fortune in stupidly expensive Australian electricity when you could just grow the plants outside or buy chilli from a fruiterer or supermarket?The only people who should waste money on grow lights are the poor souls who live in tragically high latitudes in Scandinavia.But even they can get fresh flowers flown in from Israel and Kenya daily, so what the fuck, cobber?
>>3069263If you want to grow things from seed, just google a planting calendar for whatever part of Oz you live in and then go to your local shitty $2 store and buy seeds for $1 a packet.
>>3069255Redish brown larva. I want them to die...horribly.
>>3069263what temps do you get during "winter" down under?and no you dont need special grow lights, get some cheap bendy-clip lights and the brightest bulb you can find.
>>3069295Google gave me this6.5 - 14.2°C (43.7 - 57.6°F)and that sounds about right. this week is going to be around 14-17°C as the top temps
>>3069295>get some cheap bendy-clip lights and the brightest bulb you can find.What are the light bulb stats that I need to be looking at for growing?
>>3069300lumens. just make sure you dont go over the socket's watt limit or you'll burn your house down.
>>3069305and by socket i mean the lamp socket not the wall socket
>>3069305would something like this work? I'm guessing the 380lm is the lumens
>>3069309380 is really low though
>>3069309lol no. you need 2k lm/ft^2 minimum for DUDE LMAO to even grow a little
look at the size of this ladonly a few months old. if it weren't for the heat it'd be loaded, it's dropped at least a few dozen flowers already. never had a plant get this big this fast in a 5 gallon container before. bhuts love the florida heat
>>3069544big boi! guess you dont have any pods yet if it drops most flowers? my suave habanero and yellow cayenne pods are getting big
I CANT BUY SHIIT AT SUCCSEED !!!
>>3069846if you're in the EU I just found a new website for obscure species that ships internationallytoo broke to order anything myself right now anyway.
Best advice on getting rid of what I assume is powdery mildew on my squash plant? I have a cucumber that I don't want it to spread to. Makes me want to fucking ;~;
I've got some produce porn. A garden I tilled, planted, laid straw. An elderly family member weeds it, it's not on my property.
>>3069934Squash, cucumber, beans, peppers, onions, lettuce, and a fuck ton of tomatoes.
>>3069936Can't eat this shit, except the hosta.
Well I still don't know what the plant is but the green ones are tasty. Like a nut.
>>3069869Any pond plant resources?
>>3069934Good garden but the scenery behind it looks quite depressing
>>3069941Now I'm eating the ripen nut rather than the unripen green nut. Not as tasty and very bitter, slightly spicy, but has a sweeter flavor to it than the first one. I'm going to spit it out since spice usually means poison. Does anyone have a clue which species this is?
>>3069971Beans. Facing North East in the pic, the tree line to the left is a creek. Next year it will be seed corn.
>>3069988>PodocarpusLooks like it. These are them on google but there's practically nothing on them except that their seeds are poisonous.It sucks because there's also insects here I can identify but there's nothing online about them as well.
>>3065514When were they planted? How often are you watering? And what is the humidity level?
>>3065515Herbs because you keep trimming them. Herbs don't die unless they go to seed.
Does anyone have any suggestions for cacti or succulents that take extreme shade? Or even an indoor plant that can handle it?I'm so desperate for plants but my entire room is shaded by an oak tree,
>>3070363>cacti or succulents that take extreme shadeThere are none.Some houseplants can tolerate low light levels, such as Spider Plants, Mother-In-Laws Tongue and Aspidistra to name a few.But if your room is really dark, you might even have trouble growing these.
>>3070363>cacti & succ>extreme shadeno. get a zamioculcas
>>3069916You can't get rid of it really. Most anti-fungal sprays are a meme.To help prevent it, make sure you have good air circulation, and avoid getting water on the leaves.Unfortunately it's pretty common on curcubits. It doesn't necessarily affect the crop, depends how bad the mildew is and how late into the growth cycle. I've had good crops from pumpkin vines that were completely covered in mildew by the end of the Summer.
>>3069916NEED A LIGHT?
>>3069967I'm unsure whether the sites I buy those from ship internationally.

Can I plant ferns in normal potting soil with expanded clay underneath? Or do they need stuff like perlite, peat moss, etc.?
>>3070364I was afraid of that.
anyone know what plant this is that's growing over everything? it looks so fucking coolin maryland if it helps
>>3070714Do you have a closer-up picture? I'm also in MD. It could be English ivy or kudzu, but I'm not 100% sure.
>>3070719heres another pic from the area
>>3070733Which area of the state was this? It looks similar to some areas I've seen.
>>3070733Close-ups of leaves and other features aid in identification. Have you compared it to pics of kudzu?
>>3070738somewhere by gwynns falls>>3070758thinking it def looks more like kudzu

>>3070733I fucking love Jumanjibtw those leaves are not from english ivy
Flytrapcare Forum is terrible one.They post same topic"identification this plants"or,"plant name"they have never got that plant so tell me how to grow.Yes,CPUK forum is best CP forum,lot of beautiful pictures,good experience.worst flytrapcarenext Terra forumbest CPUKDo you have any idea?
>>3065562What is this
>>3070551I would like to ask you why would you think this post is interesting in any way?look at what you wrote and how you set it up. this alleged boomer nursery story is 95% you stroking your cock about getting plants using bonus points, and 5% is totally owning a boomer for... getting plants.I implore you to reconsider your self estimation. if you waste people's time with such inanity you are not interesting. well, hold on now... if you are a girl, fair enough. burning people's time with this type of inane self involved shit is business as usual. on the off chance that you are a dude: stories need a point beyond just telling the poor bastards in your proximity about how your day was. no one is interested in that livejournal entry you mislabeled as a quirky boomer story. nothing happened in it. at all. etc etc, you get the point. pure garbage.
>>3070940you don't need a specific forum for carnivorous plants, they're normie tier plants that are easy to take care of and readily available, their soil and watering doesn't vary widely aside from during dormancy.wouldn't bother with any of them.
>>3071045maybe anon just wants to talk about CP with people?
>>3071034Wonder who could be behind that post
I am new to bonsais i just got this ome yesterday can someone identify his variety? Also regarding nutrients how often do u have to give them fertilizer?
>>3071100ignore criticism that could improve the quality of your life and those around you because it's not pleasant...if you want to tell valueless anecdotes in the future stop yourself
>dat feeling when there's a killer sun but you are protected by a huge evergreen bush, enyoing the cooled air, the humidity, and the silence. (Add a pool near if you want).
>>3070998I have no idea what they are called. My mom gave me a tiny piece of both, and they are thriving.
>>3070551>"green" burial>involves air polluting cremation
>>3071123Looks like a Ficus.Yes, they do need nutrients. Find an appropriate bonsai fertiliser and use accordingly.Just going from your pic, it needs a lot more light than that.
>>3070803Looks like Hedera canariensis
>>3071034Nice blogpost, boomer. Here's mine: Yes, part of the point of my post is to show off some plants I bought on /plant/ general, who would've guessed? AS for 'stroking my cock' about using bonus points to get plants and saving money? Nobody think that's ego stroking except boomers who care about money too much. Its just a part of my story. Anyway, the other point of my post is to show how some people, especially boomers, have shit taste in plants and are often careless with their money and selections. This guy was buying 2 8 FOOT TALL $80 FUCKING THUJA OCCIDENTALIS. If you knew anything about this plant you would know they're popular for growing very fast and being cheap. Buying these plants so tall and expensive instead of buying smaller, cheaper ones and letting them grow in their space is the quintessential impatient boomer gardening style. On top of that, arborvitae hedges are the most bland and overused hedge where I live, making a mess and wasting space where a fence could be. They constantly need to be trimmed and topped, and every time doing so you run the risk of exposing a permanent bald spot on the hedge. So in summary, fuck you, fuck Thuja Occidentalis, and FUCK BOOMERS.>>3071182What?
>>3071216>act like Tommy Tuffnuts on internet >because an old as fuck boomer could probably whip your pathetic ass
Is it really dangerous to eat random wild mushrooms? or is that a fake boogieman myth?. Like for example how they say eating raw meat is dangerous.
>>3071267Why would they be there if nature didn't want us to eat them?
>>3071267you have to be above 18 IQ to post on this board
>>3071205>Sedum albumCheers mang. Do you happen to know the 2 on the right of the pot too? >>3071177
>>3071177you should put medium sized rocks in a circle to elevate the ones on the right. could also use some more soil to raise everything in that thing a few inches.
>>3071289Yeah I know, I just dumped them in because that pot happened to be available. I'm moving to what hopefully will be my permanent residence at the end of the year, then everything will get its proper place.
>>3071285>Do you happen to know the 2 on the right of the potYou're welcome!The two little guys are Sempervivum.What you have in your pot are temperate succulents. They do well with a lot of sun and well drained soil.The Sempervivum are slow-growers and form clups, but the Sedum spreads rapidly and can be invasive as the fallen leaves will root in the soil to produce new plants.I would suggest potting the Sempervivum up separately.
>>3071272I just suspect there is a lot of exaggeration on how poisonous they are. I suspect posinosous mushrooms are more like "get a diahrrea once" kind of thing.>>3071284I am smart.
>>3071314>i am smartclearly not since the whole thing about "dont eat random shrooms" is that some can kill you and many look similar so unless you got experience picking them or have a book with you to double check, you're gonna have a bad time eating random ones.dumbass
>>3071251If you think my hatred for boomers and general tone of my post is 'Tommy tuffnuts' you might be a sheltered faggot.
>>3071331What's wrong Tommy, you mad? >he mad
>>3071324I bet you're loads of fun at parties.
>>3071369more fun than a dead guy at least, and i can go to parties unlike someone stuck in a hospital bed due to mushroom poisoning
>>3071423what parties you go to ?
>>3071438the one your mom throws
>>3071331You sound like an edgelord NEET trying hard to cope and being mad at the boomer parents who pay for your internet and tendies with sauce.Your whole thing is "Stop being born before the '70s, and stopliking things I don't like."It's p. sad tb.h, famalamadingdong
>>3071216It wasn't a blogpost. Being long and boring isn't what makes something a blogpost, per se, it is self referential minutia. I didn't attack your boring and long post to defend boomers I did it to prevent you from coming off as a female or narcissistic in future posts.
>>3071453>>3071468You guessed right, I'm a piece of shit NEET. If it wasn't obvious for my previous posts. I should just post plants and shut up.>>3071444Checked

>>3071558sorry I'm quoting pricing on Thuja 'Green Giant', but Thuja occ. is still 140 and 260. other point stands.
>>3071314some mushrooms can kill you on the first nibble, there's "no test a bite and see what happens in a few hours" like with random plants.
>>3071570>some mushrooms can kill you on the first nibbleno they can't. even the most poisonous mushrooms require more than a nibble and take days or weeks for symptoms to manifest.
>>3071853>and take days or weeks for symptoms to manifestsome are in a few hours
>>3071562What's the difference bettween a normal thuja and the green emerand variety?
>>3069300>>3069305Do not listen to this retard, you can't use any regular lightbulb for growing as they don't emit the full spectrum of light. Plants need red and blue light and at different times. Get a proper full spectrum light.
