He must have a green thumb. Those are really hard to grow

What variety are they?

Ring of fire?

That's great that you are getting him interested in gardening. Those sun flowers look amazing by the way.

This is actually pretty normal. Frogs love hiding in pineapple heads. When I kept mine outdoors I use to always have them hiding in there. I loved them as much as the plants haha.

so adorable! That's a nice fit for a F R O G G O B O Y E

All I get are spiders

Dragonfruit grown from seed

Supermarket fruit. I'd say maybe 11 months

This is the pink one with the white flesh?

I call that the disappoinment fruit. Looks like it would be amazing, tastes like sponge.

I should take a pic of my 10 year old ones.

How long did it take to turn into this? I have some sprouts from a supermarket dragonfruit and they are starting to turn into cactus, but still have their "baby leaves." It's been about 6 months, though!

Edit: I saw your comment saying they're 11 months old--but how long did it take for the baby leaves to drop? It feels like it's been so long!

Pretty ecstatic about my Christmas present from my s/o. Pots, lights, plants, humidifier, shelves were all under my tree this morning.

Wow!! That looks awesome!! What kind of lights are those??

Grow lights for plants don't emit UV light, they emit light from the red and blue wavelengths of the spectrum, which looks purple to human eyes.

Assuming that the OP's SO bought plant lights, of course.

Here’s a link to the lights! I promised him that I wouldn’t open it, since the price is in there. But as a consumer the settings and features of the lights are very nice!

First off, there are subs dedicated to weed growing which doesn't include this. Second, you ain't growing weed under lights like that. Get outta here.

Is that an eames ottoman you’re using as a potting bench? Way to keep it classy👍

Chair-Ceiling guy! Your plants look great

nope a bad cheap replica. Not worth it

this time with correct grammar lol. Previous post is here! I added a lot of plants and added grow lights to help them through the winter. My Instagram is here if you’re interested 😁.

This is the first time we've successfully grown beetroot & I thought the inside was just beautiful.

This is the first time we've successfully grown beetroot & I thought the inside was just beautiful.

First rule in roadside beet sales, put the most attractive beets on top. The ones that make you pull the car over and go, 'Wow, I need this beet right now.' Those are the money beets.

I love beets! I wonder why they are called beet root, instead of just beets. We don't say carrot root or potato tuber...I wonder about words and language. I am silly. It is 4 am and I am waiting for my coffee.

Fact: bears eat beets.

Bears, beets, Battlestar Galactica

Home grown avocado. Store bought avocado for scale.

Home grown avocado. Store bought avocado for scale.

Those are two different varieties of avocado. In my local store they are occasionally for sale at the same time.

This is the correct answer. The green on the left is the Florida or Dominican avocado whereas the black, smaller one is a Hass avocado.

because that would just be too easy and nature is a bitch

Quite a few years. Most trees won't start fruiting for up to ten years, and those are ones you buy in nurseries. Growing from a store bought avocado seed usually produces trees that cannot bear fruit.

13 ounce purple carrot. My biggest carrot ever! So happy...

And it looks amazing!! Almost too perfect 😉

Bit of sea soil, aged compost, plus a few applications of some left over hydro nutes (Flora Grow). Never had any success with carrots before this year.

They look beautiful congrats :-)

Awesome! What did you grow them in?

Final harvest of the year.

Hi there! Beautiful pumpkins! Excuse me for asking, what are you going to do with the sunflower?

Probably going to eat them at some point but might also keep some for seed stock for next year.

Can we see the actual garden? I’d love to see how big of a patch got you this harvest.

“Very big” is relative :). My “big” garden bed is 32 sqft.

My little unfortunate balcony garden that gets almost no direct sunlight finally rewarded me with enough chives to cook with ❤️

Chives comme back thicker every year

Get a T5 fluorescent light, bring the pot indoors, and never have to wait for chives again.

So cool. I have a courtyard that gets very little full sun, but it is perfect for growing sweet potatoes, whose leaves I eat as greens. Also, I can grow gingers there; edible ginger, turmeric, shampoo ginger. You work with what you have. Lettuce grows well in low light, just so you'll know.

for a second i thought those were growing on a wall
