Christmas Eve "eve" paperwhite experement update!


My indoor paperwhites have grown quite a lot and tonight I had some badly needed “help” with the tape-measure while measuring the height of the plants.
Mystic thought that he needed to inspect the measuring device personally to insure accurate results in this experiment update:

After inspecting the tape measure, he showed me exactly where to place it on the lavasand grown paperwhite’s surface to insure that we got an accurate measurement:

Mystic was exactly right and we got a total plant height measurement tonight of 22 1/2 inches for the “forced bulb”..

But what about the organically grown one?
Mystic decided that the tape measure was properly calibrated and we took the measurement on the organically grown paperwhite from the same soil level as the “lavasand bulb”. The results were striking!:

Almost 24 inches!
The organic bulb started out a bit slow with the growth, but once its’ potting soil microbes got fired up with the “Compost tea mixture” and the “Alpha Bio Systems” product called “Thrive”, things started happening and this little guy has taken off!

Of course, after the final measurement, Mystic just HAD to inspect the measuring device to insure the accuracy of this experiment:

Mystic gave this experiment the “paws up” and it’s a post! {chuckle}
Of course, Mystic’s little brother, “Smokey”, was investigating all of the presents under the tree and seemed to have “crashed and burned” while the experiment was going on:

Gotta love it! N2O
