1st off, i have a few q's about these bushes. Some of the questions im going too ask are probably going too seem strange lol.
The plan i have in-mind. I wanted too order 2 species of blackberry in feb. Ive decided on apache and ouachita, ive read severals sites saying they are a good pair for cross pollination for good fruit.
1st question. Im wanting too keep my originals, basically(mother plants), groomed very small and keep them managable in my indoor closet. Is there anyway of making these plants not produce fruit, like changing the times on a tomato can make it not fruit or fruit early? I want these mothers just for the purpose of cloning my outdoor rows, and re-up the stock if they die.
2nd question. Im having excellent luck starting up my dragon blood tree's under a 255 Led grow panel in a custom storage bin growroom ive made. Will Leds be enough too support good indoor growth or should i mix Led and fluorescent?
My idea is 4 255 Led grow panels all attached too a thin sheet of plywood giving me a 2ftx2ft light area, but i was thinking of adding 2-18inch compact fluorescent lights attached on either side of the grow panel with good natural blue bulbs.Very little heat could be managed with a few desk fans. Think this would work? The closet seems big enough i could keep atleast 2-5gallon buckets for pots.
