"Right, I could not remember their name off hand.  Harpers and A&P are locally owned, which is why I thought of them first. :-)"

Hello again! I have been looking at sunflowers online and found the one I want but I cant seem to find them in the Gilbert area?! Anyone know any nerserys that would carry the teddy bear seeds? I would rather support local business than order them online if possible.See More

"Hi Jon, the 95-98 is a little too hot. 70 on the low side is great, if you could regulate so the temps stay no higher than 80s that would probably be best.  The pepper has flower buds on it that is good.  The bug picture being blurred hard…"

"Careful with that sake :-)  Jon, ultimately the soap could degrade the wax on the leaves of your plants, but you won't be putting that much on.  The soap does degrade the wax on the aphids - which is why it is part of the solution,…"

Jon replied to Jon's discussion Indoor Growing, Box Style!!
"I looked it up and they seem to be aphids. I don't want to use a soap pesticide cause I've heard it destroys the waxy layer on the leaves that leaves them vulnerable to other harmful things. Correct me if I'm wrong please tho. I only…"
