Is it ok to start my #springgarden , #cannabisgrow#outdoorgrow ? what do i do to prepare my garden? what does #NPK on my #nutrient bottles mean? Knowing when to start planting a garden and how to prepare your soil are the first steps, With spring in the air, your #greenthumb might be ready to start working in the dirt, but it may not be a good idea to start digging without a plan. In March, the #vernalequinox signals the beginning of spring in the #NorthernHemisphere , #autumn in the south and the reverse happens during the #September equinox.The word equinox comes from Latin words which literally means “equal night”—aequus (equal) and nox (night). On the equinox, the length of day and night is nearly equal in all parts of the world. With the equinox, enjoy the increasing #sunlight hours, with earlier dawns and later sunsets! Soil Preparation when planting a garden, you can also prepare your soil by loosening it and turning it over with a shovel or digging fork. This creates a better home for your plants, as it warms up the dirt and makes it easier for roots to dig into the soil. After cultivating the soil, it may be necessary to add #minerals to keep the #plants growing long-term. This can be done by mixing in #fertilizer that includes #nitrogen , #phosphorus and #potassium , #compost is a great alternative to which adds nutrient-rich #organic matter to the #soil , making it better at holding #water and feeding plants. What does NPK stand for on fertilizer and why is it important to know? The three numbers on fertilizer represents the value of the three macro-nutrients used by plants. These macro-nutrients are nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) or #NPK for short. The higher the number, the more concentrated the nutrient is in the fertilizer. Not all types of plants have the same nutrient requirements, and you can sometimes do more harm than good when applying chemicals haphazardly. Applying a fertilizer high in nitrogen will cause certain plants to put all their #energy into producing #foliage at the expense of flowers. If you do not have a good grasp, you will! #HappyGrowing , Much #Peace and #Love , Keep looking up! #KeepItReal !
Lately, it turns out you can’t use Instagram to do anything but be fake. Anyways, I found some pictures of plant adventures my fiancé (@fiance_to_terra.botanicals) & I went on in the past years. Hope you all enjoy.
I’m not superstitious by any means but #Aglaonema or the ‘Lucky Plant’ has for centuries been cultivated in China and other Asian countries as an #indoor#ornamental#foliage#plant and considered a bringer of fortune. Its longevity, ease of growth and striking appearance were thought beneficial to the well-being and financial success of the residents who grew it.

Over the next week or so I am going to be sharing some images I made that are part of a body of work called Loose Leaves. This series is about the cycle of life and death; looking at dead, dried leaves that have found their way back to bodies of water.
