Introduction for JanetJenson

I am retired and enjoy Paid-to-Write Social Networking sites not only because the interaction there is mentally stimulating, but also because it is a source of information that is relevant to my varied interests. The earnings are not going to make or break me, but I like to earn a little from a site just in order to be able to say this to acquaintances who are jealous of my ubiquitous association with the computer: "Don't bother me, I am making some money here." They only wish they could. Yes, I do prefer the computer to them. I like people, but I like them better if they are computer literate. What do I like better than the computer? Plants! I really love plants. Plants are my favorite food, especially plants that I grew myself, preferably indoors in liquid nutrient solution.

Welcome Janet. Write on. It sounds like we're in store for a volume of plant posts. Looking for tips for a brown thumb.

Growing plants in liquid nutrient solution sounds interesting! I hope you'll tell us more about it :)

Hi sandyresearch and ruby3881 and thank you both for welcoming me. I used to think I had a so-called "brown thumb" but finally I came to the conclusion that I just don't like dirt...or bugs. It is really hard to over water or underwater plants that live in water. All they need to thrive indoors is plenty of light and occasional nutes.

A very warm welcome. I feel like I'm meeting someone new. I hope you have a wonderful time here. I'm glad the cash doesn't matter much. You will be a great addition to the site.

Light would be the problem in my home! I keep meaning to set up a plant stand with a grow light for starting veggies indoors, but it seems wherever I move we have a problem with space for it. I'm thinking about growing mushrooms, as my backyard is too well shaded for veggies :)

Kyla, if I had room for it and time to play, I would love to try one of those automated mushroom kits!

I share your thoughts about being more with the pc than real people. Is what you are doing with your plants called hydroponics?

Welcome to PP!

Yes bestwriter . whether I am simply rooting a cutting in a glass of water or growing fruit bearing veggies in an Aerogarden, it is all hydroponic growing.

I have an acquaintance who sells mushroom growing kits at the farmers market. I don't know if I'd start with on me of those, or just build my own.

JanetJenson I have too much light at certain times of the day and would like to have plants near the windows instead of near the center of the room. It's more than just the type of plant: but lighting, watering, potting.

Plants, when you have a brown thumb, can be challenging; I had some plants an thought I was following the water requirements and they still turned brown. But, maybe I bought plants that weren't the best.

What about hydroponics instead of dirt? I remember a while back that people were selling hydropnic plant kits: you use pebbles instead of dirt.

JanetJenson wrote on August 1, 2014, 7:18 PM

sandyresearch Hydroponics is it for me as I don't like dirt. You don't even need pebbles, although I enjoy using them for some of my plants, some of which grow easier in water than others. There is no such thing as a brown thumb, in my opinion.

JanetJenson wrote on August 1, 2014, 7:21 PM

Either way I can't wait to hear how they come out! This is so exciting! If they had not started selling Baby Bellas at our local dollar store, I would be growing some of my own now.
