Gettin' some growth, very excited now! (progress)

jutsFL(9b (Orlando))May 8, 2014

I'm very pleased with the growth of my plants thus far, and will thank EVERYONE here again for their help - either knowingly, or unknowingly.

They're all starting to bush out now, and really set some fruit... It's actually kind of amusing how excited someone can get over mere plants?!

...I (and all of us are) those people :D

Agreed, those are nice looking plants. What are you fertilizing with? Potting mix?

Thanks everyone!
Kevin, seeing the size now I'm already wishing I had gone with larger pots...I still am in the process of getting a drip set up for them too. Watering is a pain!

Punkrotten,
The soil is literally the cheapest potting soil that I could find (earth grow at Walmart), mixed with pine bark fines. I feed them expert gardener fert (it's the walmart brand equivalent of miracle grow), and every so often I add some calcium, Azomite, and Epsom salt to the mix.

Awesome plants Jay!

Azomite? Where to get and how to apply?

Stoney

Edit: http://www.azomite.com/

Looks pretty good if Jay's plants are any indication :-)

For the azomite I added a tbs to each pot in the root hole when planting. As for now, I've just been mixing in a tbs of it around every other week with feedings. Not sure if it's really all that great, but the plants are doing well... So I'm not changing it at this point!
