hahaha that is true about the plant being a hundred years old.
I have a good feeling they will all make it!

Thanks for the kind words :)


Day 12 is up!

I have discovered that when the wind is strong and the bag is opened while there's water on the walls of the bag, the temperature drops 1 degree compared to the outside! Got to 27'C when the outside was 28.

they look ok, just give them a mist before photo session.

in the future , prepare a soil mixture of one part peat moss(from a nursery nearby) , one part forest soil(ofcourse, from the forest, you go dig some ), one part perlite ( use crashed eggshells if you can not find perlite)

next, you will need previcur 607 sl , ask at any nursery, do not purchase a different product.

it looks like here: http://hobbygradina.ro/wp-content/galle ... evicur.JPG

for fertilizers- use vitaflora universal http://www.vitaflora.hu/ and apple cider vinegar

when you mist --you can add a half a teaspoon of previcur to one liter of water ---- and you mist like that --------- do not add(mix) fertilizers with previcur -----previcur is expensive ---here , now they sell it in vials which are dear and small.

yes, you have to use previcur, it will help the plants a lot!

when you water - use one or two teaspoons of vitaflora universal to two liters of water ----the same amount of vinegar(two teaspoons of apple cider ) to the mixture ------ and water only when the soil is amost dry!

Nothim, i appreciate your recommendations but i already have converted to organic :D
I was finally convinced that organic is better when my bay laurel plant gave me new growth after 4 months of nothingess. I used different chem ferts including giberellic acid to no avail!
I was about to give up and my last resort was to just put compost on top of the soil a few weeks ago. Lo and behold she finally gave me a new leaf!!!

I'm not thinking of placing fertilizer maybe upto the first month because i already placed some compost at the bottom of the pot on day 1. That'll be sufficient for the time being :D
I will use a combination of Blackstrap molasses and Apple Cider Vinegar for the fertilizer and also some worm castings in the future. I could never go wrong with organic ferts :lol:
I talked to Hawaiian Baby Woodrose(from Brazil/same weather here) from the other forum and she said that she just used BSM + ACV on her plants and it gave them insane growth! I've just began to use this fertilizer yesterday and i will post my conclusion in a month. So far my B. Caapi got really green leaves after 2 days of using them so this seems promising :D

Blackstrap is cheap over here. Around 15USD per gallon and i only need to use a tablespoon for every gallon of water. I'm going to use half of that amount for the boolies :lol:

Oh yah, we don't have peat moss over hear but we do have a ton of coco peat. As for forest soil i'll just replace them with regular compost. We don't have perlite here believe it or not. I've searched all over and nobody even knows what it is! I'll use eggshells as you have recommended, i'll probably sterile it first though.

Cheers man! :D

Wasn't able to take pictures yesterday. I just misted the walls of the mushroom bag to keep them humid.
Everything looks fine though! :D

You should try and set up a time lapse! Take a picture in the same spot each day, and mark it as the time lapse photo and then put 'em all together... I'll do it if you keep taking the pictures.

@Ulmy,
All i have is an old cellphone camera. I'll think about it when i'm able to successfully grow this plant :D I'll do it to her clones!

Day 16:

Everything looks good! I am now thinking of acclimating them soon.
I'll experiment with plant 4, the best of the boolies

ok,

let it grow bigger ! it is too young and too small to make it without the humidity tent ! maybe i am wrong , do not know how humid is there !
be patient, and learn to grow them first , and wait for them to give you cuttings so you will have back up plans!!!

I'll probably start acclimating plant 4 on Day 31. It's really humid here:

I'd like to naturally prepare the plants for the incoming summer. I'm not too worried though because in the shade it's not that hot :D

if it is humid, have a go with only a cutting , let it out for one hour only, see how it goes !

after one hour , see if the leaves are still ok, increase with one hour each day !

On Day 31 I am going to poke the plastic bag and see what happens.
I am worried about the birds who might pick the plant.

Day 19:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] ... 994147726/

Nothing much to say other than they look good and have steady growth :)
I think they will be alright with the weather here. Maybe baby plants have better capabilities to adapt to the weather.
Remember these are really tiny. Around 1-2 inches tall!
