Repotting Yamamoto Dendrobiums. 1.29.19
That purple color is about the same as my LED grow lights that have red and blue LEDs.
The photos are accurate to my eyes.? I don't know a name for the leaf color under the lights - maybe mauve under purple?? Almost brown. ?
I get the feeling that a lot of the applied research of growing plants under LEDS was or is driven by marijuana growers.? They have much, much bigger and intensive systems.? Mine is just a little light fixture.? Still, 온라인슬롯사이트추천the color looks about the same.? My seedling light unit was $30 something on Amazon.
Glad the seedlings are doing well! The pictures really look photoshopped... would you say the camera is accurately showing the weird color of the LED grow lights? (I've had cameras that showed bright LEDs very differently, much whiter and less saturated, than how my eyes perceived them.)
Oops - the top photo of that post was mostly pepper seedlings.? Here are the onion seedlings.
Here are some of the seedlings I started so far indoors.?? Most of their light is from LEDs that I bough via Amazon.? They look weird when the LED lights are turned on, but turn off the lights and they are a normal green color.
Tiny onion and pepper seedlings under LED lights.
The same onion seedlings with the LED lights turned off.
This shows what I like about science.? We know from science which light wavelengths the plants require, and which wavelengths they don't need.? So by just using the necessary wavelengths, and growing them under LED tuned to those wavelengths, we get the wavelengths the plants need, with very little energy wastage via heat that happens with incandescent lights and even CFLs.? So far, the plants are growing great.? I imagine they will need acclimation once they go outdoors, but I'll do that gradually and carefully when the time comes.
Today I planted more pepper seeds.? They need a much longer lead time than I gave them last year.? I love home grown peppers and want to make more pepper sauces this year, so am starting them quite early.? I already started Thai and Tabasco pepper seeds.
This winter I think the orchids will keep me going until daffodill season. ?Yesterday I saw the noses of daffodills poking out through the soil. ?That was the bulbs I planted last fall. ?Older ones serm to be later, or sonehow didnt survive their dormancy. ?Probably some of both.
That white is gorgeous!
A diferent kind of orchid, dendrobium. ?These are native to the Himalayas, so not as tropical as some.?
Yes. ?I've been gardening here for 20 years. ?I often plant bare root trees in Jan. ?They have always thrived. ?I think it tunes their budbreak and leafing out to the local conditions.
There have been some winters when the ground briefly froze, but during some winters it never does. ?I also grow figs and windmill palms, which I dont think will survive a truely cold winter. ?We are zone 8a or 8b.
You can plant trees in late January? Our ground is frozen.
