If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate


A special blend with a lot of micro elements, made in Brazil I think. The ideal mix 6-12-28, but this went a little wrong so it will be next week.


and continued good luck!

Congrats Roger

I bet you are glad to see this happening.

yes I am

This plant should not live giving the condition it's under and the circumstances regarding transport etc. 8 Days in a plastic sack - 6 of them on Managua airport, total warfare with everybody, EVEN when all was pre-aproved.

Some will live and produce, next is tomatoes, food is gold and hydrophonic is very predictable and with a almost contant cost factor. Thanks for the nice comment.



First Strawberry?

Am I missing something? the photograph is dated April 2006.

Just a bad camera
