My 10 Gallon of Growingness
So I decided that I wanted to start up an emersed growing system with plants that I didn't have and maybe a few I already did. Either way this is hopefully going to become a farm system with lots of rapid growth so I have a bunch of plants to use.
Tank: already had it 8) ballin out
Substrate: Scott's oragnic potting soil $3.50
Timer: $4.88 at meijer
Lights: 10 gallon hood I had an 2 clearence led bulbs that take in 7w but were rated for 40w (6500k) like $6ish also ghetto rigged some aluminum foil to lengthen the reflectors.
3 colorful cheapo clearance buckets from meijer: $.49x3
3 plants that I've never had before. $4.99+$2.99+$2.99
Micro Sword (most excited for)
No idea what this is, hopefully someone can help me out, its reddish. (generic, I know)
Any tips or help offered is really appreciated as I'm new to this whole, growing things only partially in water thing.
I know they are really bad pictures, I'll post better ones when the lights come on in the morning, don't feel like messing with the timer right now.
Full the water to just below the soil level. Nice start
I upped the water level, thanks for the tip. This is the plant that I'm hoping someone can id for me, all I know is it is a stem and its red and green. Got it at petco.
Yeah, that red stuff pretty much died off, but the hygrophilia is shooting out new leaves it seems somewhat quickly.
Then I separated the micro sword so I could get a better idea of how it is growing.
Also, on the hygrophilia, I know the top is growing, but the bottom part looks almost like a dead twig. Is this part dead? Or what is going on there?
