I failed big time. I knew it was going to happen. As I predicted, the summer heat would make me lose interest in this experiment. Ah, but, I know some are curious as to what happened after...
|Plant Name||Numbered||Team M|
|1. (Dwarf?) Jade Plant||9.5"||10"|
|2. Hummel Sunset||10"||***|
|3. Gollum Jade Plant||9"|
|4. Hobbit Jade Plant||8.5"||7.5"|
***I gave away the jade plant when someone asked for it. Sorry 'bout that...
My conclusion? I think the recipe helped slightly. (Refer to measurements from first post) While Team M was catching up to its taller counterparts, it wasn't exactly a big improvement. I imagine if I were to run this experiment for five years, Team M would have a big advantage over the other team eventually. Would I do it? Very lazily.
Off-topic note, I do love how the fertilizer recipe has caused lots of buds on my thanksgiving cacti. The likelihood of me making the fertilizer for next year is very high and I may continue to water Team M just for the heck of it.
