All plants are safely housed in the greenhouse now.

Sunday, 23 September 2018

All my plants are safely housed in the greenhouse now.  Its just a matter of keeping the humidity as low as possible at night. I run a dehumidifier. Ventilate on all warm days. I run fans and two extractor fans on reverse thermostats switch on at 65f 17c. I water every pot that shows signs of drying out each morning.

Cutting down to one stem

Saturday, 28 July 2018

I've been busy cutting down the plants that have their buds secured in early August.  I've also applied a top dressing of final potting compost an inch to 1.5 inches deep to encourage new roots through the bud swell period. 


Looking down under my cover. Gigantic familly are nearest the top
