    Swamp tubes

    Well so far so good, I tried a few last year with some success so at it again with a few more (-:


    Dry summer where I am this year, but still these are doing very well

    Cool, so they're in containers with the no bottom and stuck in the moist ground?

    Always wanted to try that. So dry around here that irrigation is a must.

      The yubes are about 40'' long , 12'' peat moss crushed lime mixed in and then topped up with promix HP mix in AN heavy harvest




      But there's been no rain so I don't think there getting much food, what should I foliar fedd them with to give them the max nitrogen?

        botanicare has good products, specificlly the pro pure blend or w/e


        those are looking nice though, interesting way to grow. were having a "severe drought" right now here, maybe I will give this a shot next year If i can find a good location...

        although it seems a mold resistant strain would be a must. do you know yours?

          This method has always interested me. Where can you get the tubes? What exactly am I looking for?

            the tubes i've used are simply pvc schd40. keep in mind thet they will 'stick out'. must be camo'ed. trail to and fro' is hard to camo. also need to be taken down after harvest as they will be found if ur growing on public land. they be crawlin' with peoples during hunting season. ive tried this method and got about 1-2 oz/plant, could have been the plant. i did this one time to see how it would work in a strealth guerilla grow. i used clones and made 4 visits, 3wks apart. including harvest. frost here any time after 9/1, but a swamp grow may not frost as early.

              Very, very nice Bob Dole!
              Bob Dole knows what he likes when he sees it, Bob Dole does not mess around. Bob Dooooooooooole!

              Thats a great idea using Concrete forms, I'm sure its cheeper to use than Pipe(and easier to find).
              I'm sure Bob Dole will elaborate more on this DirtDevil, but these are hard cardboard tubes that are used by contractors for pouring concrete piers and footings, you should find them at your local building supply.

              Again, very good idea! This one goes in my ICmag favorites!

                        swamp growing

                        Very nice bob dole!!
                        I too have some plants growing in a swamp, and they are some of my best plants this year- mainly because lack of water. I cut the majority of the bottom out of 4- 5 gallon buckets. Then sink them in about 1/2- 3/4 into the "muck" on a few higher spots. Here is a pic of a plant that has never been watered, and is in a 5 gallon bucket (and I haven't seen rain in 3 weeks ):



                        Right now she is about 7' tall, and sees the sun all day. The area is dry but if you stomp down, water will fill your footprints.

                          Here are some more tube pics, I have sprayed them twice with B-52 , Scorpion juice and grozyme.


                          There has been almost no rain so they havent been getting fed with the heavy harvest like planned so spraying really helps out!
