After 10 days of beautiful growth... they plants stopped growing completely... and the tips started getting small burnt leaves and twisted growth.. it was dreaded Thrips attack...!!!

I used Imidacloprid and now the plants have resumed their growth.... :mrgreen:

The story still continues.... I will update the growth every month inshaAllah...

While roses in soil are struggling to survive, the soil less ones are growing as if its winter:

Izhar this is an amazing experiment. Wonder if it can be replicated in beds...

Sir, the success of this experiment will open doors for other seemingly difficult plants.... and as you can easily acquire these materials, I would ask you to try yourself too...
