the awesome #power of #hydroponics... the #hydroponicsunflower started off as a grocery store packet of #sunflower seeds, meant to grow up to 4.5 feet tall... getting #kratky'd in a 35 pound #purina #kittylitter tub, it grew to a height of about 7 feet tall... an improvement of about 2.5 feet or about 50% more sunflower.
each stalk is supposed to proced 2 or 3 flowers... im getting 4 to 6 per stalk so far with more budding out.. that's double again!
days to bloom is correct... started it in early november.. so 3 months from germination to bloom. and the #spacing is right too.
the germination rate was pretty low, though... of the 8 that i started , 2 germinated and i had to prune one of them.
