Welcome to my website. Ive listed a description of the items I used to grow outdoors. Not all this equipment may be necessary for your situation, so Ive also detailed the reason for its use and its benefits. This way you can decide for yourself.

Fabric pots allow air into your soil. Air is important to the roots and the microbes living in the soil. Fabric pots also create air pruning of the roots. The roots will penetrate the fabric, reach the outside and die. This promotes new growth and prevents plant roots from circling inside the pot. https://amzn.to/2Okji6l

The texture of your soil determines its ability to retain water and allow oxygen to reach the roots. The microbes in the soil also require organic matter as a source of food. FFOF soil is a Peat moss based soil medium. It uses composted wood and perlite for aeration and is amended with organic materials like fish meal, crab meal etc….https://amzn.to/397caAG

Earth worm castings are literally worm poop. They are loaded with organic trace minerals, some readily available to the plants. The texture allows it to hold water and buffer nutrients. Its also loaded with microbes. I use worm castings in my soil mix and also to create compost teashttps://amzn.to/2LmKYFW

Compost is decomposed organic matter. It absorbs and holds water and nutrients well. compost also contains nutrients in different stages of availability and also microbes. I use compost in my soil mix and to make my compost teas. Home made compost is best a good quality store bought is second best.https://amzn.to/3q5PZlx

Perlite creates spaces in the soil medium that allows oxygen down in to the root zone. oxygen is important to the microbes and plant. Lack of oxygen creates aerobic conditions that may cause root rot and pathogens to thrive. I use perlite in my soil mix. https://amzn.to/3nkFFnA

I use Alfalfa hey as a mulch. It prevents the top soil from drying out, allow the pot to retain water longer, and releases nitrogen as it breaks down over time. https://amzn.to/38rLB9M

Organic fertilizers break down over time with the help of living organisms in your soil. As they decompose, they are converted to plant usable nutrients. I mix this into my soil mix.

Fish fertilizer is made from whole fish and carcass products, including bones, scales and skin. Microbes in your soil convert these items into plant usable nutrients.https://amzn.to/2OA9chy

I use paper cups to start my seeds or transplant germinated seedlings. They recyclable and will decompose over time. https://amzn.to/30qo30T

I use spray bottles to water seedlings, apply organic insecticides and mist the plants if the humidity is too dry. I always have a few at hand. https://amzn.to/3ekULsB

Watering wand used to water my plants. This wand has a gentle shower spray pattern. https://amzn.to/3qpYebK

Water is important when growing organically. Some microorganisms are very sensitive to chemicals found in treated water like chlorine. https://amzn.to/3qAQ3sZ

Bacillus thuringiensis is a species of bacteria that lives in soil. It makes proteins that are toxic to some insects when eaten, but not others. BT makes toxins that target insect larvae when eaten. In their gut, the toxins are activated. The activated toxin breaks down their gut, and the insects die of infection and starvation.https://amzn.to/3vaCjsr

Neem Oil is an organic insecticide made from the seed oil of the Neem tree. Neem oil acts as a repellent. It also interferes with insect hormone systems, making it harder for insects to grow and lay eggs.https://amzn.to/3ciJg26

Mycorrhizae is a type of Fungi that attaches to your plants roots. It s able to obsorb moisture and nutrients which it then trades your plant for carbohydrates. When mycorrhizae are present, plants are less susceptible to water stress. https://amzn.to/30vhJFj

Air pump tubing used with the air pump and stone to brew compost tea. https://amzn.to/3v9mxyd

Air pump is used to create compost tea. https://amzn.to/3sYMa2E

Air stones used to aerate compost tea when brewing. https://amzn.to/30vcLIu

Paint strainer bags. I use these to hold the compost and worm castings when brewing a batch of compost tea.

Measuring quarts come in handy all the time. i use mine when mixing liquids and solids like soil mixes. https://amzn.to/30tIvOo

Trimming shears are used through out the plants life cycle. They are also used at harvest. I always have extra pairs. https://amzn.to/30tIWZ2

Trellis nets are used to train your plant and also support the weight of the flowers late in the flowering stage. https://amzn.to/3vbxG1m

I use Bonsai training wire to train my plant. I also use it to hang my flowers during the drying stage. https://amzn.to/3t42j7g

I use the pump sprayer in my outdoor garden to apply organic insecticide to the plant. https://amzn.to/2Oh94nl
