Last try at growing a cucumber in the AG. The variety is Tasty Jade a parthenocarpic (all female, sets fruit without pollination). Full size cucumber. This is more to test out the time lapse Plantcam then anything else. I am going to keep the pH lower than in the past - about 5.8. Haven't decided on nutes yet but will probably use the 3 part Flora to use it up.
Here's a picture of the Plantcam set up and a sample picture:
18 March 2011: Grow went nowhere. Didn't help I wasn't around to fill nutes. Interesting that a sample cuc (for postponed hydro demonstration) in clay pellets in an outside container (pick up to aerate) is doing just fine. Who mentioned that cucs don't like roots disturbed??
