Liquid Nutrients

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

This is sort of a continuation of a conversation started elsewhere.

Recap:

I bought some General Hydroponics Flora Grow, Flora Micro Hardwater, and Flora Bloom early in the summer. But my first attempt to apply them, as per the instructions on the bottles (3/2/1 tsp/gallon for vegetative growth) on lettuce didn't go so well. I cut the formula to 80%, but the lettuce still didn't seem as happy as it had on AG nutrient tabs. So, having quite a lot of those from assorted kits (lettuce gardens never seem to last the 4 months in the kit at home temperatures), I went back to those.

Peat advised me that I really needed an EC (electrical conductivity) meter to use liquid nutes well. But I didn't want to pay for one. (The good BlueLab truncheon he recommended runs ~ $135 - easily enough for another Aerogarden or growlights...)

But those AG nutrients kept melting into a slurry. AG said they worked just as well as before they melted. But - they don't seem to anymore.

But - yay!!! BB got a BlueLab truncheon, and has very similar water to mine & GH nutes (tho Flora Micro, not Flora Micro Hardwater). And he measured his formulations for me! Thank you thank you, BB!

Well, that's true, I could

Well, that's true, I could rename my Picasa albums & my older images on my server.

But at the moment, I don't want to do anything until I've finished gleaning out my growlogs. Thanks, no, Peat - I can read stuff. And you can't delete or change it.

Yes, I think LukeSkyWalker

Yes, I think LukeSkyWalker was banned for his new site. But I don't really remember him before he posted his new site, so I didn't really notice at the time, just that he posted enormous hydroponics tracts that no one was discussing, then was gone. H2O didn't discuss it with me, naturally... He never did.

Actually, it's not good that my contributions are still there and I have no access to them anymore. It amounts to theft. But I'll at least glean the growlogs off before asking that all my posts be deleted. Dunno that they'd honor the request, tho.

H2O does get revenue from his

H2O does get revenue from his site. I'll use AdSense ads here, too - they're not obnoxious and add a few pennies here and there to defray expenses. But the Google terms of service state we're not allowed to say how much money we get from those ads. It's not a lot, unless a site really takes off.

My stuff was just moved, not deleted, so far. Valuable content... Yes, I too can use proxies.

OK, I lied, I haven't gone to

OK, I lied, I haven't gone to bed yet, this board is taking a little getting used to. All I can say about Peat knowing when he'd be there is hmmmmm.......... but I can't imagine Peat doing anything bad intentionaly. Edited, since I see Peat is a member..

Did h2o delete all your things or just move them? Guess that's a moot question since you supposedly can't even see the board, like me.

While we're on the subject, who is h2o and why does he even have the forum? It's surreal, like Charlie's Angels or something. Is it full of ads for revenue? I have a pretty strong ad blocker so dont see any if they exist. Otherwise, I can't figure out why he'd go to the trouble and expense.

OK, I'm going to bed. Unless something else comes up after I save this.

He didn't have anything to

He didn't have anything to say, to me. Not a word, not when you and Ellen had the icon tiff, not now. This doesn't surprise me much - as moderator on that board for 6 months, I think I've had 3 email exchanges with him. (No doubt Ellen keeps his mailbox full... but he's never around, never answers, why would I email him?)

I only knew anything was up, because I got an email telling me one of my glogs had been moved (actually, they all had - he nuked "Gisette's Glog" sub-board and moved all the topics). I asked why :

Why has "Gisette's Glog" been removed?

A comment I didn't consider particularly rude...

And next screen refresh, i was banned :

For solicitation and disrespect of other members.

Yeah, the board went silent, and now he's trying to make himself pleasant, I guess.

I wonder how Peat knew he'd be back "tomorrow". In all the time I was on that board, I never had any idea when H2O would be back - not even what month.

WOWser! Yep, I am too. I had

WOWser! Yep, I am too. I had to use a web browsing proxy to see what h2o had to say. He's been busier tonight than I've ever seen him. I didn't mention you at all on the forums, just "the other place". You think he's looking at our PMs?

Hope dinner was good. Fully

Hope dinner was good.

Fully monty? As in, completely nekkid? 

Yeah, I don't have a spare closet. That particular system that keeps singing to me, includes the closet! With ventilation fans, even... There is room in my office to add a standalone closet... So long as I can close the door on 400W lights. Though, their heat output would be welcome down there. Brrrr.

YAY! Great to see you online,

YAY! Great to see you online, Bruce!

And I'm really relieved to hear you've had yellowing trouble with the peppers, too - now I'm not so worried. Please keep me posted on how your new mix works!

On brighter news, my yellow-leaved red pepper is definitely setting, keeping, and growing fruit. At least 6 now, plus at least 2 new fruits on the one whose old fruits are full sized (but still green). The runty potted pepper with the 17W Walmart grow light has set at least 5 fruit, too...

Ah, I see you want the full
Ah, I see you want the full monty. Maere won't have a closet devoted to plants so I'm having to do what I can, even though it'll be even more obtrusive. We have way too many clothes and jackets... The only drawback I can see with what I bought is the height, it's going to be short if I go with 3 gallon planters plus many really neat hydro setups are 24" wide which will be out of my league. Getting dragged off to eat, later.... B
