  • Please read the Beginner's Walkthrough in the wiki before posting for the first time. The wiki answers many common questions. If a topic is discussed in the wiki, please post follow up questions to the weekly beginner's thread.
  • Please be civil! Our community is based on mutual respect, and comments that violate this may be removed without warning at the discretion of the moderators. No personal insults. Constructive debate is good; name calling is not.
  • Please provide constructive feedback in comments. Try to add value to the conversation and aim to improve your fellow growers skills.
  • ALWAYS post photos of your trees when asking questions
  • Downvotes are for off-topic comments only, NOT because you disagree with the comment. This helps the mods ensure that correct information is being presented.
