SOURCE: I have planted some sage

Cut them with the stem.Do not cut ALL of it.Leave some to grow.When you get it cut place it all in a brown paper bag.Close the bag.Everyday open the bag and shake it.This will dry it so you can keep it for a long time.When it is dry,I use a tobacco grinder and grind stems and all.I then store it in a plastic freezer bag and freeze it.Just in case you need something sage is good on.Sword fish,or any fish with the same texture.Marinate the fish in olive oil,with 3 fresh lemons,cut and squeeze them into the oil,then add plenty of the sage.Wait for 24 hours or more,then grill.

SOURCE: growing indoor avocado tree from seed

Make sure it doesn't stand in water, don't give it too much. Moist is OK, but it needs to all drain out. Also, don't let soil cover the top of the seed area. Mulch on top is OK, but not right over the base.

Testimonial: "Thank you for your answer. I will repot this into a pot that has better drainage and I will clear the covering from around the "trunk " where it goes into the dirt.I am confident that you have solved this problem for me because I had over watering problems in the past. I don't know why I did not match these two incidents together and solve the problem before it became this critical. I will let you know my results - in about two weeks - if I can ever find this site again. I am not too good with computers. When I was a child I drank too much water. I appreciate your answer. - Lester"

How to care for ho useplant begonia rex?


Growing Requirements for Rex Begonia Plants Rex Begonias grow best in bright, indirect sunlight coming from an east or west window.
Fluorescent grow lights are also an excellent alternative to natural light for these plants,
and in many cases will intensify the foliage colors.
When potting, set the plant with the crown slightly above the soil line.
They should be planted in a porous, slightly acidic planting mix that contains some peat moss
and leaf mold. African Violet potting mixes work well for Rex Begonias.

Allow the top 1inch of soil to dry before watering, then water thoroughly.
Over watering can lead to root or crown rot! Wet foliage can cause problems with mildew.
Always use room temperature water when watering house plants.
House plants should never be allowed to stand in water for more than a few hours.
Painted-Leaf Begonia plants thrive with daytime temperatures of 70-75
and 60-65 at night. NEVER lower than 60!
They require a humidity level of at least 50 percent and appreciate periodic, light misting.
Provide additional humidity by setting the plants on shallow trays filled with moistened pebbles,
or a humidifier, especially during the winter months.

Feed actively growing plants in early spring and again in early summer with a slow-release plant food,
or every 2 weeks using a quarter strength dilution of a soluble, complete fertilizer (23-19-14).
Decrease feeding in early fall and stop altogether in the winter. Do not over-fertilize!

Your Begonia Rex may go dormant in the winter and possibly drop its leaves.
If this happens, continue to water sparingly until spring when new leaves will re-appear.
If your Rex is growing where it only gets light from one side ( a window sill),
turn the pot a quarter turn each week to maintain even growth.
Foliage color may fade under low light conditions. Consider using a grow light.

Remove any dead leaves and other debris around plant regularly.
Rex Begonias enjoy spending the summer in a shaded part of the garden.
Always be sure to check for insects and pests before bringing your plants back indoors!
Rex Begonias are susceptible to attacks from mealy bugs.

The small bilabiate flowers can be white and finely spotted with pale purple or pink. They are showy and fragrant. The plant blooms from late spring through autumn.[3]

What is the best grow lights to grow *********


That depends on what you're trying to grow and what phase the plant is in. Certain plants are adapted to grow in the shade or in warm, sunny environments. Depending on the plant, one type of light may work better than another. For example, if your plant needs a shadier environment, then a regular incandescent bulb may work best.

The other factor that goes into choosing the right grow light is what phase your plant is at. For example, a high-pressure sodium bulb may be best when your plant is in the flowering or fruiting stage.

Personally, I love using LED grow lights. Modern LED bulbs are more energy-efficient (they produce more light with less power), so they cost less in the long run. They also produce less heat, which means you don't have to worry about a ventilation system. Plus, they emit light wavelengths that correspond to the peak absorption peaks for most plants.

When choosing your bulb, you should look at the requirements of the plant and how those requirements change as the plant continues to grow. Keep in mind that the larger your plant gets, the more light it will need, so plan ahead.
