Rosemary & Thyme

Peat's picture

Just a little side grow/experiment using the light from one of my AeroGardens... Nothing serious, just put them up here for interest - these plants take a long time to grow!

I planted some RosemaryThyme seeds in a couple of potting mixes :-

Rosemary in perlite/vermiculite (ratio 3:1)

Rosemary in Coco Coir

Thyme in Coco Coir (with vermiculite sprinkled on top)

Ah, pictures can be

Ah, pictures can be deceiving. The thyme is 4½ high in the top picture, rosemary in the bottom two is about 3"

The seeds I bought are in the main page at the top, both Thompson & Morgan.

They are still quite small, but the aroma is wonderful.

Week 15 Just a little update,

Week 15

Just a little update, mainly for you Jessi as you have just planted Rosemary & Thyme. As you can see, they do take a long time...

The Rosemary grown in perlite/vermiculite (left pot of the two) is growing better than the coco-coir one.

Rosemary - Week 15    Thyme - Week 15

It does not look very

It does not look very healthy.

The plant likes sun so get it under your lights, let the rosemary become moderately dry between waterings. If the soil is dry now, give it a good dose of water. It's a hardy plant, you never know, it may come back.

This is the Rosemary plant I bought online and I think its dead but you might know better.

Its pretty dry & brittle. Is it dead or just sleeping till spring.

It depends on how much you water the perlite...

Looking good, Peat!

Looking good, Peat! Interesting, that the rosemary prefers the perlite. I've heard that plant thrives on drought and neglect.

Week 7 This is a long haul,

Week 7

This is a long haul, the rosemary is doing well but growing slow. The thyme has got it's act together and is growing much better now. All plants are directly under the AG lights.

The rosemary grown in perlite is the bigger plant, it's getting lots of reflection off the white perlite which is obviously helping.
