Re: GH height

Taller greenhouses increase the volume of air significantly more than the surface area (heat loss). A large volume is much easier to control the temperature, much slower swings in temperature. commercial video but it works to explain, [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=51&v=vM9P6uV...

Re: Euph. obesa

that is really something to see, I wish mine grew that well without me watching..

I pollinated mine, the females are enlarging and it reminded me to get a very fine mesh bag to catch the seeds.

Euphorbia esculenta

This older plant was showing signs of N deficiency and had not been repotted for years. It took some time to get it out of its pot.

The roots are interesting that's for sure.

Anyone rooted cuttings off of the side stems?

Re: Adding charcoal to mix

Alex,

are you perhaps thinking about BioChar? There has been some research (not with C&S) using this material with mixed results. With a high price point, I doubt I would use it.

Its interesting to see all the beautiful caudix forming Pelargonium flowers, so different than modern florist pelargoniums, thanks for sharing
