I am in the mountains of Western North Carolina

This is my first grow. I have 12 plants about to be harvested. They look great. I didn't know that Miracle Grow was shunned, that is what mine are planted in. Before I knew about forums I just went to Lowe's and bought what I thought was the good stuff. Wish me well.

I am growing outside, 15 plants, I thought that it was a lot less hassle than growing inside. This is my first year so I have no comparison.

I do not know how to post a picture. Tell me where to read how and I will post it. Thank you.

I use Black strap Molasses 5 teaspoons per gallon of water. My plants are doing great. And it is also cost effective, I pay 9.29 per gallon.

I have taken the stem of a fan leave and pushed it into the soil and it has turned into a new plant.

I have read that the 30x and 60x  Jewelers loupe are what to have. I have a 10x , not strong enough. The 30x dia. is I think 21 mm. and the 60x is really small. I just found a 40X loupe with a LED light That is 1 inch (25mm) in dia. for $9.99 I will get it Monday. I think that will be great.

In N. C. at the highest elevation the leaves are already starting to turn.

I just got a 19 inch bowl trimmer the extra blades come in a set of 4, 2 are serrated and 2 are smooth. The replacement blades cost $22.00 for the 4 on Amazon. I didn't want to find out the hard way how long they last.
