  3. Does anybody else grow bamboo

    Hi ali baba, you seem to know your stuff about bamboo [emoji6]. I think I know what to do now I'll either get very large pots or a very good barrier as you said. But it will be 1 year or so growing in my tent I guess, before I have to worry about it too much? Sent from my SM-A300FU using Tapatalk
  4. Does anybody else grow bamboo

    Hi, thanks for the advice [emoji6]. Will they grow well in very large pots to stop running? and how long will it take after they sprout will they get to a meter in hight? Sent from my SM-A300FU using Tapatalk

    Oh another thing I forgot to say lol, I think natural sunlight causes more algae than artificial light! Sent from my SM-A300FU using Tapatalk
  8. Why is the silica sand green??

    Hi gaz mate, I only added sand because it said in instructions when I got the seeds too sprinkle sand on top lol. Lmao it's a chicken tray I got my ribs in from super market lol, I bleached it and sterilised it well enough, with boiling water. Free propergater [emoji38] Sent from my SM-A300FU using Tapatalk

  10. Why is the silica sand green??

    Karsty, I have my light on 18/6. I've had other plants on a windowsill, with perlite and the perlite has went green! I started my bamboo off the same time under lights with 50/50 peat and perlite which has no algae at all, seems to be fine. Apart from the silica sand which went green but is now going back white, wierd! My temp through the day is 25-27 degrees, and through the night 18 degrees! Sent from my SM-A300FU using Tapatalk
  11. Why is the silica sand green??

    Hi karsty, I give it a good spray off rain water a couple of hours ago and it seems to be disappearing now lol. No where as bad as it was. Maybe not wet enough lol. If I leave them on a windowsill it's worse because of up and down temps. Sent from my SM-A300FU using Tapatalk

  13. Why is the silica sand green??

    I can't understand why it's going green because when I just checked soil it was more or less dry? Sent from my SM-A300FU using Tapatalk

    Hi Vincent, I've been using clean rain water. The seeds are quite big there opuntia engelmannii seeds, will they be ok? Should I let it dry out slightly? Sent from my SM-A300FU using Tapatalk
