    i purchased 2 of these growing planters. The concept is good but it has a few drawbacks. it uses too much soil for whats growing in it. too much unused soil. secondly the drip watering hole sits at the back of the plant that its supposed to be watering. water only drips at the back but the roots of the plants are are at the front. if you supplement it with additional watering then it would work.

    Three luffas in such a small area is quite adventerous

    If I may suggest something, I understand that you are the person that you are and I don't want to criticize your personality, but I think you should not speak about stuff with a question mark at the end like if you were questioning someone's sanity. I have noticed that you speak in that voice very often. Like when you said "and these collard greens have been *a little chewed on*." or "which is important when you transplant things." or "this is like live television" or "try not to squish any of your veggies, like I did." I hope you understand what I mean, I am sorry if I hurt you, but I believe that your channel is great and it has a lot of potential to grow even bigger. I am sure you have a lot of fans who love that quirkiness about you, but I think you have nothing to be insecure about. You can speak confidently about even the mistakes you made like forgetting the water trays. I probably would have forgotten them, too. Mistakes happen to everyone, you have no need to laugh awkwardly about it. So be a proud gardener. Because your garden is amazing.

    BTW I really liked that you added the 7 week later review at the end because most gardener youtubers don't do that and I think it is a little lazy of them. We never know whether it succeeded or not.

    fyi, Ocean Forest potting soil from Fox Farm is for "INDOOR" gardening, greenhouses, seedlings, etc , not final planting. You spent allot of money on something Not intended for outdoor. It will work, but plants at that stage need more nutrients/ compost etc…(yes worm castings too) I like the tower, would work well for small spaces. PS, I didnt catch the price?

    looks like it could be dangerous around small children.

    Hi Thank you so much for the review Christy!

  • foraging seeker 1 month ago

    Thank you Christy for the review, and for getting to know the product a bit before doing so : – ) The Luffa Test allays my concern that the soil might not hold moisture well in the upper decks. Would love to experiment with a fungal dominant soil, see how things might grow in a container which features living fungus. See if something perennial might be accomplished for acidic plants. i am so new at all this, my thoughts might be waaaay off base. Will just have to experiment and learn more!

    Christy,
    Ashley here from GreenStalk! What a well done video! Growing vertically is a radical idea and doing it effectively has been pretty difficult until we came along. Thank you for pointing out the soil needing to go to the top.
    Also, you found a new way to use our black plug. Handy! We originally designed it with The Mover so you can plug the water from draining out the side (more helpful if growing indoors).
    I love the variety of plants you chose to grow and especially the loofah! How fun!

    We are so glad you love it!

    Christy, I noticed that you used Foxfarms Ocean floor potting mix, this is my first year using Ocean floor and I will never go back to the old M.G. stuff. Nice vid.

    That's really cool Christy. I wouldn't mind having one to plant strawberries in. Do you have a link to the site or is it just Greenstalk.com? I was also wondering what the price is. Thanks for the video.
