Office experiment is still thriving!


This little Ivy and stalk of Bamboo has been growing in a liquid solution of the following for over 1 1/2 years:
1 cup compost tea
1 ounce molasses
1 ounce natural apple cider vinegar
1 ounce liquid seaweed
The above is mixed into one gallon of water..

The little Ivy was a cutting from the larger “mama plant” and the bamboo stalk was a garnish from the local supermarket that was never meant to be grown at all.
It took root in the liquid and has thrived.

Both plants are growing indoors under very poor lighting conditions and have been doing surprisingly well in their “organic hydroponic root food”.

What a cool experiment! I would have thought that they would have died months ago, but the heavy biological activity that surrounds the root systems has kept them quite happy!

The above formula is also what I use on my lawn, gardens, and container plants once per month to “push them along” and everything is VERY happy this spring!

Gotta love it! N2O
