    I learned about something new yesterday. Beware of VPD (Vapor pressure deficit). When using indoor lights, be aware that Photons themselves add heat and when you add air movement, it can drastically lower humidity which can cause normal healthy water loss from the leaves to stop occurring, which then causes green coloration to stop being produced, which can make the leaves turn white and growth stop. If you confuse this with "lack of light" and add more light, your going to make it much worse.

    If you CAN'T lower your temperature or move your light source farther away or dim the lights, you can do these things:

    1) You can add humidity, by frequently misting your plants or adding containers of water near your plants or cups/buckets of wet perlite. However, when you increase humidity, be careful about lack of air circulation, which will cause mold spores to grow on your plant/soil and your room. Sulfur Powder resists mold spores from growing, so you can sprinkle it on top of the soil if your plant is not sensitive to it or you can put a layer of pure sand on top, which will be inorganic nutrient-free and can only cause mold/fungus growing on it if you fertilize it or dead leaves stay on it. ALWAYS remove dead leaves/stems/flowers from the top of the soil, you don't want to try to "mulch" or "compost" the top layer of the soil because what it actually does is start rotting and growing mold which can spread to your plant and attracts bugs which combined will weaken your plant, making it attract more bugs.

    2) Add carbon dioxide.

    3) Keep the roots temperature in the 60*f range.

    I know this all sounds very complicated, but it seems like the easiest generalization solution is to try to keep your plant leaves at around 75*F (if I understood the videos correctly).

    I have a wire push cart that I push outside during the day, when it's nice. I put my herbs on it. I use a spray bottle for watering. I find my herbs need less water than I realize

    oddly enough, i usually cut open a teabag and empty its contents on the plant and they seem to take off with it. I do it once every couple of months. I keep my used teabags on the side to dry out completely before i add them to the soil of the plant then water it in. I've done it with herbs, orchids, spider plants and succulents to great success. I find black tea bags work best where as green tea bags don't seem to work as well.

    Sage, cilantro, and oregano grow in my garden outside. I am in zone 8b, but this winter we had weeks of weather around 20 F and cilantro loved it just like parsley. Also when in Europe in NY style cold weather we still grew it outside. Stevia is growing well now in the garden, this winter will be the first one outside!

    Great speaker you are. You cut to the chase, you are clear and knowledgeable. Two thumbs up.

  • Frieda Schnell 7 months ago

    I had sage growing outside like weeds in my gardens when I lived in the Puyallup WA area. Then in the Chicago area I had mint in one bed which got full and abundant. Also had lavender in several gardens there and both mint and lavender survived winter snow like troopers.

    Can you use miracle grow for herbs?

  • Ailicec 7 months ago

    Thank you!!! I learn so much from you and it was great getting to the end cause you have so much great info! <3

  • pebbles inside the pot can be good to prevent the soil packing down too tight where the holes are that can block the drainage.

  • Mohammad Hamed 7 months ago

    Thank you maam. I can’t believe I’ve just watched a full 13 minute video without fast forwarding!

    I live in sunny Santa Barbara, CA but I worry about heat and just forgetting to care for them with my schedule. But my question, is that I used to have a huge saltwater reef aquarium and the lighting setting cost me $800. I still have the 2 metal halide lighting systems. They’re 250 watt setups. Are they too strong? What kind of bulb
    Would be best for them? I hate to keep storing these lights if I can use them for growing. Thanks!!!

    Your videos are so full of info, that yours are some of the few I watch to the end. I swore you were talking to me. LoL I am guilty of not watching to the end. I have been homeless for the past 16 years and soon will be moving into a mobile home on half an acre. I miss my gardens. I even miss my compost pile. I am excited to be able to garden again and your videos give me the confidence to try again. Thank you so very much.

    God Bless you for creating that index in the beginning. I skip through videos as a rule, but since you added the guide, I realized that I wanted to hear about everything you had on the list!
    But most importantly, if I didn’t want to, you gave me that option as well. instantly subscribes

    Hey Laura, I bought some glazed ceramic pots that hang on my wall and I have a feeling I can only plant succulents in them (no drainage holes). I would really like to have herbs though! Perhaps putting a mini pot inside the ceramic pot? Then I can rotate it and do your pebble trick? Any advice would be much appreciated! Thank you!
