DAY 23 11-25-2020
Main question before talking about anything else: Is it a good/bad/neutral decision to put some remaining 1-way window treatment inside the Grobo? It obviously reflects light because you see your reflection on one side. I had read mirrors aren’t good but that Mylar is good. I THINK this is Mylar but not certain. Has anyone ever used this stuff to reflect light and get more use out of the same light output?
I’m both worried and optimistic about Ilana. She has much less green on her compared to Abbi (pics to follow of that beauty). Although she has definitely gotten taller, some of the leaves underneath are really withering away. At the behest of Grobo I was told to start doing some light bending of the stems. She has a lot of yellow spots and discoloration but I don’t see any sort of bug bites. I don’t see any obvious signs of fungus or mold. The roots on Ilana are whiter than those of Abbi. So I’m not sure what’s going on. I’m hoping this fresh batch of water continues to have a good effect on Ilana’s growth.
Why the giraffe?
I wanted to bolster Ilana’s confidence by giving her a fake prize. I gave her the giraffe award for stretchingee up so high like a giraffe’s NECK!! I’m so proud of my discolored baby. She is nice and TALL!! Also, I wanted it to be easier to distinguish the two for my fans at home. And, let’s be honest, how many small figurines can a single man with no kids have lying around the house? Yes, ladies. I’m single. Come one, come all.
Abbi meanwhile is a thick girl. She is greener than Roy G Biv himself. Seems like all the leaves are growing pretty well. I did less training on this one.
If anyone sees anything I can do to improve, please, help me live my best life!
