RE: Gardening with The Anarchist's: After Hours!
Really? I hope this isn't a stupid question, but why is that? Soil temperatures?
If this is in reference to the small containers then yes.
The roots have no need for carbon dioxide (cO2). Respiration gives off heat, and it also requires a minimum temperature to start and continue; if the temperature gets too high, the reactions go haywire. If that happens, the roots will take in water but then they will do their best to retain it and so the process of transpiration (which provides water to the whole of the plant and cools it) will be disrupted. Instead, the roots transfer the excess heat generated from respiration (latent heat) to the surrounding medium. Dense mediums such as soil, sand, and even water, have a large temperature buffer which means that the temperature fluctuations over 24 hours will be minimal under normal conditions.
but I've always heard bad things about using miracle grow for your plants.
It can be, I am extremally biased though. The salt content in the miracle grow makes water unavailable to the plant and kills the micro-biology. But I have seen lots of people many different times use miracle grow with no problems except for the final product that does not taste good.
Thanks for all of your expert advice! You definitely deserve a follow, and I can't wait to see what all I can learn from you!
Well, I appreciate your kind words and thank you for the follow! Just know I have made more mistakes than not. Hopefully, we learn from each other!
