I had one that good I received from matt and it got laid to waste by squirrels. Do you have problems with squirrels, and if so how on earth do you deal with them? I have a mini green house but it gets blown away by the wind

I did have a problem with squirrels but I don’t grow outside unprotected, I grow either in the greenhouse or a storage shed I turned into a grow room. Sorry I can’t help!

Lol thank you, I did heavily fertilize them before summer started so everything filled out nicely and had a huge head start! However, they did slow down recently because it’s been so hot in my grow room. Night lows of 91F and highs up to 112F!

I’m not using any special soil, just a 50:50 ratio of peat and perlite sometimes a little more perlite.

Geez that’s hot! I wish I had an outdoor building for a grow room :P would be really fun. Out of curiosity what camera are you using and are you cropping with photoshop or a free program like GIMP? I’m not even sure that second one is still a thing, but I used to be fairly decent at that from cleaning up stuff for a website. I used to also play in my spare time with drop shadows and trying to draw ok stuff on my tablet but it was mediocre at best. I did really enjoy it though most of the time.

Also out of curiosity do you use a photo box for some of the pics too? Was thinking about getting a small one to play with.

I use a ring light, an overhead high bay light that’s a few inches from the top, and a directed lightbulb off to the side, with a black drape in the background and a tripod to hold the potted plants up for pictures. The only editing I do is color correcting and tint corrections. I use my phone camera but hopefully soon I can invest in a good one!

Ooh I can come close to this setup probably. I didn’t even think about lighting. Thank you for sharing. I mean your plants are still gonna look prettier, but I’ve been trying to get good pictures for a minute. I broke out my macro lens a few days ago. Haven’t gotten to check em out yet but yeah indoors with certain lighting would be fun!
