  • I'd poke a finger down in the soil about an inch or so away from the plant stem and see how damp the soil looks down there. If it's damp, don't re-water yet. On small plants, the soil tends to dry out from the surface downward since the roots' water uptake is still low, hence it's easy to over-water by just looking at the surface. The plants with limp leaves are probably showing some root-damage stress, and they may recover with time if they put out new feeder roots. The way roots work is that they require moisture primarily to make dissolved soil nutrients accessible, and too much water can actually drown the root cells.

  • My finger felt like 30 to 40 per cent humidity, though I usually do it with pencils. By the time you read it, it'll be 25% or less, central heating on, temperature fluctuates between +17 and +20, approximately, centigrade. I've had an advise for some other plants that one shouldn't soak freshly potted plants whose root system's young, or even non-existent somehow: the soil should be moist but not wet, so that the plants knew there's water here, and they developed their roots. There's no need in higher amounts of water since their green parts are very small - right?

  • That's essentially correct.

    Oops! It happens*:)*

  • What will "Happy New Year!" be in Gaelic?
    Scottish Gaelic will do*:)*

    It's Samhain today, or yesterday, these days around. The celebration being Celtic Turn of the Year actually.
    Helloween later originated from Samhain, got settled at November 1. Samhain is actually a tad later. About on this week, November 4-like.

  • Trump?

  • That's President Trump to you. 😛

  • My mom had her knee surgery yesterday and she's feeling just fine. In fact, she no longer has to wear crutches tomorrow and she's going to start walking along with wearing a smaller bandage.

  • How about some reunion here on this coming Christmas?
    I'm not religious, at all, but listening to the radio maybe, it seems the Christmas Spirit has been catching up with me :lol:

  • I see many people posted links here. It's not considered spam?

  • @wealthcanada:

    apparently posting bona fide links to add further information is acceptable and appreciated, while spam will be deleted and @leocg will swing his banhammer without mercy.

  • I see many people posted links here. It's not considered spam?

    It depends on the link and on the context in which that link is posted.

  • I removed one link from his first post since it was the same as his username - it looked like he was just trying to cleverly hide spamming for his own site. If you identify something as your own site and are specific about how it "doesn't work" we will accept that.
