Water Roots Versus Soil Roots !
« on: 21/04/2008 21:39:06 »
Dear Rootologists,

Ewe got water roots and soil roots yes ?...they're the main two eh ?

Look here they are ! I have titled them for the hard of rooting !

WATER ROOTS !




[attachment=2807]
SOIL ROOTS

See them all there being busy being roots !!


So, why grow plants in water when they can just as well grow in soil ?

What is the main advantages and disadvantages of both mediums ?

Can all plants grow in both ?

What other mediums can plants grow in ?







I'm staying firmly planted here....rooting ewe all for your klevurness. (Le groans)

Hugs et les shmisheys

mwah mwah mwah mwah!

LOL...The root engineer! Hey what is that little plant in the dirt... ?

Plants can be started in a auger which is a gelatin type clear-ish gel...we used on bulb cuttings...


I have used a cutting dipped in root tone then into the dirt. I have also used a cutting started in a glass of water and left that way.. I have had pretty good luck that way if I feed the water a tiny bit every now and again with like a plant vitamin.. Have had better luck starting plants from water then dirt.. but they don't do as good upon transplanting for me as I forget to water them!

I am not sure which is better but I like both ways...

Thank Ewe Mam for your personal insights into soil and water root joy !


That's very interesting about the transplanting...or is is purely because you do not water them ? (Which I imagine could really ruin a plants days ! [;)])......very interesting though that more success is rewarded from water only.......I can envisage why though....as it probably feeds the plants more efficiently!

So ewe ewes gel eh ?....does that mean I could grow asparagus on my head with all the hair gel I ewse ?...it takes three years to grow y' know ?

THANK YOU again
