Q0224 and Q0269 are installed in final containers
Yesterday I installed the Q0224 Higo asagao and Q0269 asagao plants in their final growing pots. The young plants had begun extending their vines and were looking for a support on which to wind, so they were telling me to get busy.
Here are photos of the plants in their final growing containers. As can be seen in the photos, I placed a lamp overhead to provide light to the plant. I use a 100W equivalent fluorescent bulb in each one as a light source, and the lamps are on short-day photoperiod timer, giving them about 10 or 11 hours of light each day. Overnight each plant found the vertical support on their own and they appear unaffected by the transplanting process. Let's hope for flowers and soon!!
