    i know this is sorta random but... lately i started growing plants from seeds and propagating from clippings of my other plants. I've got 4 sprouting tomato plants from seeds i got from store bought tomatoes along with jasmine, lemon, and avocado. if anyone else grows plants in their apartment it would be cool to trade clippings to get more plants going.I’m the paté on the Universal cracker. I’m the grout holding your shower tiles on. I’m out of the saddle, sprinting up that hill and eating glazed donut bracelets off the right arm of Jesus.

    kirstencupcake:^^ your growing an avocado tree? (mmm) how big is that suppose to get?


    Avacaods will for sure give you fruit, the only problem is it will take 7-14 years before they start doing this... so you know its a bit of wait. As for how big it gets, you can get it to give fruit and bonzai it so you can have a mini tree that poops out avacados, it will just take a loooong time.

    If you have the time go for it. I have tonnes of plants that I have growing all the time. Here is another fun fact tomatoes will stay alive all winter if you can keep them warm and give them plenty of sun. No need to stop having them just cause winter comes, just dig them up and plant them inside. Also if my basil seeds out again anyone is welcome to some seeds basil makes everything better!this wont hurt a bit...

    your tomato plants could use a bigger pot soon. Once they get another set of leaves splitting out get them there own pot (I'm assuming your not planting them outside). Keep them under a halogen light at night and they'll grow faster. Little trick with tomatoes, theres no need to spread them apart if you have a large pot that could accommodate them at lease 10" apart that should be ok or just use individual pots but keep them close to eachother (However, I've never grown them potted). As they get bigger and grow fruit they're gonna fall over but having them relativley close helps support them (you'll still need some dowels and tying string between them should help. Once there about one to one and a half feet you should put the dowels and string in at about 2 feet. They'll grow into them. These are the best tips I can give for potted tomatoes. Me and my father usually grow an average of one thousand tomato plants at out house, and he's been doing it far before I was born (My first job was selling roadside tomatoes). Good luck!Hey, aren't you a dinosaur?

    Hey T-Rex, have you ever heard of those hanging, upside-down tomato planters? The vine grows down, so you don't need supports. I wonder how they work in real life...

    Another tip about tomatoes is that when you transplant them, plant them deep and new roots will grow along the buried part of the stem.We are the small axe.

    Any thoughts on pesticides? I tried a mix of rubbing alcohol and water, as well as dr. bronners and water, but i have little gnat things trying to get at my Basil!

    fungus gnats breed on potting soil; use a really weak soap+water solution (super-mild soap) and spray the plant/soil lightly.
    alternately, buy some neem oil and use that.
    alternately, alternating, make a gnat trap out of apple vinegar. (bottle with vinegar in the bottom and an inverted funnel)

    edit: i have gnats, too. they are inappropriately loving on my fig tree. so i've been doing internet homework.

    alas the only thing I can grow is a beard, but I'm hoping to give some tomatoes a run this summer on the HQ roof deck.Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn.

    gnats are a pain in the ass, they can grow several (like ten) generations on a little spill of milk behind the fridge, or in a bit of soil. They are really hard to get rid of, good luck.this wont hurt a bit...
