New experimental round

No chance for movement from the unhealthy & unsafe current place at this time, but I’ll be glade to shear my new round’s journal withe you in this scientific & educational forum, and in Instagrams as well. Which will be with some of potting soil as a first step, plus a natural spongy blocks as a second step, and plus some of stoney dirt as a last step.

:point_right:t2:The potting soil,

:point_right:t2:The natural spongy blocks can be found in any flowers bouquets :bouquet: stores, but make sure to wash it very well before you utilize it.

:point_right:t2:The rocky dirt’s pH range 8.0

I tried to germinates some of Italian and Lithuanian seeds, but the results gave me only one Italian and one Lithuanian new lives now, and I’m still waiting for the others seeds to show their results up or down.

The Italian strain labeled as “Original”, and the Lithuanian strain labeled as “Hemp” from their sources.

Note: no synthetic additives will be in this round.

I fixed the angles which was stopping the light reflection, which one of the experts referred on in my greenhouse in the last round.
I added two CO2 fans which had 20W in each one on the ceiling, and I moved that two PC fans from the wall to the ceiling with them as will.

Thank, appreciation, and respect with love to you all.

Hopefully the experiment success, and the plant’s roots breath well with that floral foam.

:pushpin: the concept for choosing that kind of spongy blocks, additionally on the breathing process, to I keep the roots safe and away from the rocky dirt harm in case If it’s become dry and compress during the seedling stage, to let the roots be able to have some time to build their roots which may could be stand with that kind of rocky dirt, and to be able to find unless water to drink from the floral foam that will retains on it during the drought time, as I imagined.

Feel free to correct my a mistakes.

Styrofoam which promotes mold growth. I’m with @MK3_Pharms. I wouldn’t use it either. It’s not water permeable.

Yeah they aren’t like rockwool. Nor are they used to grow things. They are foam. The kind that seems super poisonous if those chemicals leech into your plant. Let alone all the other possible problems. Air getting to the roots being one of those.
Possible if you run a PVC tube from the bottom of the foam. To above the soil line. Like six inches or so. This would help with the oxygen situation. The same set up as if you are running 20+ gallon pots.

Yeah its not suitable for that to many chemicals. Its only green to hide thts it fake. Those are for fake flower arrangements. Not for growing.
