Wow I have to say this is one of the slowest growing plants I have ever seen. There has been many more seeds that have started. I think perhaps I didn't get some planted deep enough though. So if you are going to try this make sure your seeds are about 1/2 inch under ground. The stems and roots are very weak on them and as they get bigger they are falling over. They also like to be watered ALOT! I have had to make sure they are always wet sometimes watering twice a day. As soon as they start to get dry they start to fall over. I hope I can grow some of these to adult :O) I will be planting another set today I believe trying to plant them more deeply this time.
We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol
