hello! i tried air layering with no results. Recently i've planted some seeds and just one germinated. My Pseudoacacia robinia tree doesn't produce so much prickles and this is the reason i would like to propagate.

Today, I think that using a flowform or some of the 'water structuring' devices you could circulate water and degrade the chloramines. I think that in general any kind of robust oxygenation of the water will speed the degradation of the chloramine, yoiu may need to innoculate several times or aerate the water intensly and then start your innoculation

Hi, exactly it's a salt and doesn't evaporate. I believe i should look into reverse osmosis. Aerating unlucky will not remove the salt. Until the salt is in the water the microbes will be partially killed.

Hi Amy, yes i tried the vitamic C. It's contained in the water conditioner....but I hadn't constant results.

Thanks for all the others methods but when I manage 1000 liters per time is a great waste of money to peel oranges :)

Hello permies,
how are you? I hope this is the right section for this genre of questions, because water is at the base of our projects.

I have a problem with water: the only source of water here is the tap water. I tried many times to prepare microganisms solutions but the results aren't constant. I am sure the water contains sometimes a lot of chrolamine (that's a soluble salt in water), and microbes can't multiply with it. If I find clean water, and I use to multiply microganisms then I need to dilute it with tap water, and a part (if not all) the microganisms die.

So I'm arrived to a point where I need to clean all the water I use into my vegetable garden or I'll kill what I'm trying to multiply.

Somebody suggested me the EM and ceramic disks, but I don't know anything about it and I'm looking for different solutions to evaluate which is the best for me.

Thank you!

Hello Jonny,
there is something into the fertilization programma paragraph. I can't prepare the JMS because i lack of water free from chrolamine but if i could i'd treat the soil once every three weeks or four in the spring/summer and every two weeks into the winter season when everything is dormant.

What i wouldn't add is the sea salt every time, especially at the beginning when you are starting to build your soil.

Microbes to work OK need moisture, so keep in mind to create an ambient with mulching and trees shade if you have hot summers.

Ciao from a sunny and hot Italy
I agree with Daniel, you said the mycelium stopped to colonize and it seems dry, can you describe what's happening and how you processed your substrate?

Generally speaking the straw is wheat straw but you can use every genre of straw (wheat, rice and so on). Oyster grows on many substrates included paper.

hello! thanks for the replies. I will try to dig one and try to understand if i can multiply by roots.

From the PFAF website I've read it is in flower between september and october. Once the flowers die I would like to put a paper bag over the stem and tie with a string to save seeds..

Hello, this is my first post in this section!
I'm Fabio from Italy and I'm a farmer trying to convert the farm into a natural farm. I'm mainly following Jadam method and I am looking for wild plants that can be used into the JHS (Jadam Herbal Solution). I'm interested in control aphids and ants, because they really love my hemp plants, and some vegetables too.

I've found a wild plant, with a very strong smell: Inula viscosa. Unlucky the plants are few and grow on rocks...i would like to collect seeds and multiply for future use, but I don't know how. I'm quite sure the smell is a repellent for insects.

Goodmorning Mr. Su Ba,
I have in mind to re-built my compost pile because hens created a disaster spreading all the compost around the place where it *should* to be. I liked your and your composting method and I want to create some.

There are some suggestions you can give from your experience? Location...structure...future maintenance...door..

For example I can't understand the kind of plastic film you used and how did you fix to the structure.
