#sciencewithgreg #avocadoexperimentπŸ₯‘ update!! "HAASta-la-vista" (Exp. 01) is still doing fantastic! He has three new leaves and is working on a fourth. He's well over due for a pot and a haircut, but I'm not emotionally ready yet... Him and his #goldenpothos buddy are still getting β‰ˆ50/50 filtered water + #mycorrhizalfungi concentrate and a splash of #foxfarmgrowbig fertilizer. Either 25% or 50% strength, depending what's on hand at the moment. (Usually 25.) "Waterboy" (Exp. 02) has actually pulled ahead of the yet unnamed Exp. 03 in the sprout game and got upgraded to his big boy jar today! He has been receiving nothing but plain filtered water and once his wee baby tree sprout gets a few inches tall I'll start introducing fertilizer... Exp. 03 and his pothos buddy also got their big boy jar today as his tap root was officially touching the bottom of the lil cup he used to be in. He has yet to fully sprout, tho if you look real close (pics in comments) you can see there is actually a sprout in their, it's just being shy right now... He also only gets plain filtered water at the moment. "Eggy" (Exp. 04) has yet to show any signs of life, but I did recently give him a bunch of pothos friends to help him out. He's getting β‰ˆ50/50 filtered + #pothoswater to help his pals root and once they do I'll switch him back to just plain water. (He earned his name because he currently reminds me of the egg in vinegar experiment we did in school. Lol) "Thomas" (Exp. 05) got some cinnamon treatment today as his top soil had started growing some white mold. Otherwise he looks fine. I forgot to take his goblet hat off for a few days, so it was likely my fault he has this uninvited guest living with him now... When he needs it, he gets β‰ˆ50/50 pothos water + filtered.

#sciencewithgreg #greatpothosexperiment #avocadoexperiment ✨ UPDATE✨ MY PLAIN WATER BABY HAS STARTED ON HIS LIL TINY TAP ROOT FINALLY! Plain water + pothos baby is truckin along as well. Starting to crack up top, so I'm expecting a tree sprout soonish! 🧚For those of you who've voiced that you can't get them to root etc: I don't really know what exactly has made me so "successful" but this is what I do know. I keep them in my laundry room which has no air vents. I live in SoCal right in between the desert and the coast (Camp Pendleton/Oceanside) so I get TONS of sun/heat but also decent humidity. (Basically no rain tho. πŸ₯΅) The laundry room has a west facing sliding door that, depending on the time of year, gets 3-6 hours of direct sunlight in the afternoon/evening. I do also close the door when I do the laundry to add extra humidity in the room. (Tho I honestly don't know if that matters or not, I just do it for the benefit of my pothos.) I also change the water on these every 5 days or so and only use room temp water from my Brita(filtered water). 🧚 My original/first experiment, the #mycorrhizalfungi concentrate + water + 25% strength #foxfarmgrowbig fertilizer + #pothos baby is also doing spectacular! His leaves just keep getting bigger and bigger! Tho we've been stuck at 7 leaves for what feels like weeks... Anywho, if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask! (Sorry if any of this is incoherent/doesn't make sense. Hubs has a 96 this weekend so he's been pouring shots all day. #MarineWifeLife) #pothospack #goldenpothos #epipremnum #epipremnumaureum #avocado #socalavocados #socalgreg #wickedvalkyrie #happyplants #plantsmakepeoplehappy #plantaddict #newgrowth #propagationstation #citrusgrandprix

Yet another #avocadoexperimentπŸ₯‘ comin' at y'all for #sciencewithgreg! πŸ˜‚ Can't stop, won't stop! I have another πŸ₯‘ in the fridge, what else should I try?? 🀣 As you can see, this guy is pretty friggin ugly and cuz of the wrinkles I couldn't get all the avocado off of it without scrubbing, which messed up the brown outer layer so I just said fuck it. Soaked it over night, and peeled it. Now it's gone straight into soil with the best I could do for a greenhouse. An upside down... Goblet? Giant wine glass? We use them for milkshakes, normally... 🀷 Anyhow, I put a wee lil bit of #mycorrhizalfungi powder in the soil and plan to water it with #pothoswater when I can and regular filtered water otherwise. I anticipate this one taking much longer to start growing (if it grows at all) than the others, but we shall see! That's the whole point of the experiment! πŸ§ͺ Finding out what works best/quickest and what yields the healthiest plants. I'm sure my husband will not appreciate me having a forest on top of our washer and dryer so if anyone wants to shoot me some $ for a baby tree once they get established, hmu! I'd love to just give them away but I have no money and I know hubs ain't tryin to pay shipping... Lol Aaaanywho, will update as this guy and the others progress! Stay tuned! Follow #avocadoexperiment & #greatpothosexperiment for updates! If you made it this far... Wow. Good job! Thanks for reading my novel! Here's a cookie πŸͺ and a glass of milkπŸ₯›(I also have soy/almond if you prefer) as a reward! Please, have a seat πŸͺ‘ and rest up before continuing on your journey... #avocado #socalavocados #pothospack #goldenpothos #wickedvalkyrie

#avocadoexperiment update! πŸ₯‘ Today my still unnamed #pothos baby (Exp. 03) and WaterBoy (Exp. 02) started getting a tiny taste of #foxfarmgrowbig fertilizer (50% strength). Just a Tbsp (maybe even less) in the jar, so pretty weak still... WaterBoy has left 03 in the dust in terms of growth! Not only is he about 4" tall compared to 03's roughly half inch, he's also starting to get secondary roots! Eggy (Exp. 04) has finally started showing signs of life with a tiny crack at the bottom... Fully submerging them in water instead of using the toothpick method is supposed to make them crack evenly all around, but that seems like it might have been false information. We'll see. Lol Him and his #goldenpothos buddies are still just getting plain filtered water for now... Thomas (Exp. 05) is also showing signs of life! He actually started his tap root about a week after I put him in soil I just kept forgetting to post. πŸ˜… So far it seems the straight to soil method is where it's at in terms of speed! He's covered in cinnamon because he's been really struggling with white mold even tho I take his goblet greenhouse off for a few hours a day. Might just leave it off for good from now on... (MiracleGro is hella cheap but y'all I'm very quickly getting sick and tired of it. Everything I've potted from my most recent bag has struggled with mold and has wicked fungus gnats...) Anywho, check out #greatpothosexperiment and #avocadoexperiment for more posts on these guys and any other info I probably have forgotten to include here! πŸ™ƒ #avocado #socalavocados #socalgreg #wickedvalkyrie #pothoswater #happyplants #plantsmakepeoplehappy #plantaddict #newgrowth
