  1. He knows exactly what he's talking about, this worked for 4 of my plants! Thank you so much!! <3

  2. Am i the only one who came here because this happend to they're Marijuana plants? 🙁

  3. I have a pepper and no amount of sunlight, water, loose soil is making a bit of difference. I now put a cfl light on it, because it says it needs 6 hour full sunlight, which I can't really get. Is there anyway to save it?

  4. fuck loosening the compost/soil around the plant or shrub just give it dose of Roundup360 for its half dead already so just put it out of its misery

  5. lol…this gardner forgets to mention that just because you make a smug face does NOT guarantee that your "pot" plant will bounce back. My tomatoes are grown in rockwool and i was out 1 day and forgot to plug in my water pump. I was back and was horrified to see them all wilted. Out of 10, 4 bounced back but VERY weakly….i decide to redo it and be more careful next time. This technique does NOT guarantee success.
