Re: Inserting an insecticide soak into a watering schedule

Use the drench w/o fert. as your weekly watering with one product, then do it again in another 4 weeks with another product with a different active ingredient. This keeps the bugs guessing so they don't get used to the same ingredient each t...

Re: Fanaticactus' Greenhouse 2013

Just a word of caution about the duct tape. Although it's not as hot and dry as is it here in SoCal. Over time the duct tape will become very dry and brittle and will start to just fall apart. I used duct tape to wrap all the purlin connectors on one of our nursery greenhouses (to avoid any rips in ...

Even though its a virtual visit you should still offer us coffee and a hat!

Re: Another greenhouse build...

Correct, 1 x 6 dog ear fencing. Used 1 x 3 in the first house, 3 per flat but not quite enough support. Used 1 x 2 in the second house spaced much closer together and that worked really well. Using these 1 x 6 now as i got those ones free, plus this adds even more support for the flats. Another plus...

Re: Another greenhouse build...

Thanks man! Well, first off i really dislike seeing a greenhouse with plants just sitting on the ground, call it a pet peeve. I just prefer to have benches. Also makes it just that much easier for crawly bugs and insects to get into the pots when sitting on the ground. (although this isn't really a ...

Re: Another greenhouse build...

Not a whole lot of progress since last time. The outer bench frame on the right side is complete, ran out of top boards to finish it off :roll: Although quite a few small things have been done to be able to go forward with the bigger stuff. It's busy season so it's getting harder and harder to find ...

Re: Cactushobbyman Cacti

Indeed, the flowers are a great show. Give it a good amount of space if you plant it out, it gets unruly and eventually makes a big snake pit, but a cool snake pit 8)
