DDD's Two Big-Ass Salvia.d Tops
Posted 19 February 2006 - 03:02 PM
I did harvest a lifetime supply from my efforts last year and the year before, so I'm going to get into some cactus growing this year, thanks to a freakers ball prize :)
Keep up the good work with them, they are fun to watch grow!

The nutes I got from my buddy was half a liter of some stuff called Terra Vega from a company called Canna. Says it's good for the veg/growing stage of any plant grown in soil. Sure seems to be from what I saw. As I said, I want to check out the similar www.generalhydroponics.com (probably flora nova, gonna be using a lot outside) nutrients on my vegetable garden this year and see what sort of results I can get. I think this Canna brand is for CANNAbis, but worked fine on the sallies as I was using it. I used 6ml per gallon of water used just about every watering unless they were cut back severly and had a slow growth period for a bit. I think I might like the GH better too with the extra micro nutrients they provide. There were limited amounts in this Terra stuff, but I think he told me they have other "formula's" for different apps including hydro/water grows.

Coleus is, as salvia, part of the mint family and is rumored to have psychoactive properties. I tested some leaves but no luck......yet. :eusa_thin

I have no idea what that is.

Has anyone got one to flower? I've grown lots of Sally D. and have yet to see one flower in real life. Thought maybe because I live in a climate where they only get a few months outside....anyone?
nope, never seen mine flower or even have hints of flowers...

They can wilt when first cut, so a little humidity tent/bag can help for the first day.
The 1st pic is some roots about to pop out of one of those big stalks, and 2 pics of 2 old tops I had cut off and just tossed into some water for the hell of it. They rooted. :) heh Haven't been planted.

The thing got held up in the mail for 3 weeks and when i got it, it was on the verge of death. It was wrapped in a wet towel and it was all rooted out. All i had was one leaf with a trace of green. I planted it and about 2 weeks later I noticed some new growth. The thing suvived and got too tall to I cut it up into 2 more cuttings which also grew.
When I got my cutting originally they were just two stalks with tiny tiny leaves left on them... I got one to take, and went from there. ;) Pretty sad looking when I got them, but ddd's green thumb helped em survive. ;) heh

These are some pics of them... 3 large ones, 2 smaller ones (not so small) for 4 offerings in total. Hippie will notify me of where they have to go so they don't get damaged with multiple shippings. They will be sent US Priority Mail (2-3 days). I will not ship these to a PO Box so they sit there and die though, and must be in the US when I ship them to. Only 2 stipulations. :) hehehe

Cloning salvia is really easy, cut the stalk, leave a few leaf sets on top, clean them off the bottom, stick it in some water in a darkish glass/bottle/etc
Want to make sure I understand this. I just bid on a cutting on ebay.
Just cut from a branch off of the main stem, clean it, and put it in water?
Sounds too easy. Hope I get it right. I have a tendancy of screwing up the easiest things.....

i put the cutting in a glass with not more than 5cm of water and put a plastig bag over it to keep humidy high
