Well, Mr. Tuttle, Charlie that is: you ain't asking for much are you; and
considering, PLANT PHYSIO'colon'ISTS *in the know*, are pretty busy these
days (Spring sales are just around the corner eh?) and they-be: doing
their own thing (making loads of money via rare-plant-propagation?); so
therefore me-Darlin, you be stuck with lil'ole *MOI*! Only french-word I
was ever taught, (moi = me) and this goes with a voting word "NON"! <<now
that's a joke!>> (as an inside joke at the UN-voting) "something like that?"
Anyway Charles; and this is coming from a down to earth, run of the mill,
ordinary *Mud-Wrestler*; having 61 years experience at mud-slinging (which
some folks call "Gardening")?...and...
*HAVE YOU EVER TRIED?* growing your hosta-CUSSER-plant-things, immersed
in a nutrient-water solution; on a permanent basis? IMHO -- THIS DOES NOT,
provide for root-rot in genus-hosta; and you will find, that this does
provide for the fastest growth possible; and the development of
super-root/rhizome plant-systems, which is the key to all healthy plant
production/propagation...right? Done in HYDROPONIC-LIKE fashion, so to
speak, and even via total incubation of the growing environment to provide
for tropical-like growth conditions, to even good, better, best the GROWTH
I suppose you have tried the above, but I wanted to ask this anyway; that
is to say, answering your question, with another question <<excuse me>> on
this tactic, I use. *grin?*
IN CLOSING: I would like to simply add, that the fastest plant
growth/propagation I've seen in hostas: was done via, pots sitting directly
immersed in a nutrient-solution on a permanent basis; and even providing
for blooming under lights; even when, using very small-sized-containers for
the root-structure to sit inside and do it's in'par-taking?
I suppose, there is not much you don't already know, via doing TC
propagation, and then, there is also growth hormones (like BAP-10 for
example?) and which does provide for some interesting faster-resulting
plant-productions; for say whenever the going gets boring; and I wonder: if
you might have any comments on this = use of hormones?
Take care -- a war is just about ready to run; and I've heard also, that
all lil'ole-men over 50 years of age, are going to be DRAFTED for this
soldiering-front-line purpose? This will be okay tho'?..TOO!...since this
war will BE A NEW STYLE THING: NO CLOTHING and NO WEAPONS OF ANY KIND to be
used in this play-acting <-> SIMPLY WIGGLING OF
( )( )
to SCARE OFF the enemy?
OUR KIND OF WAR'ing...perhaps...RIGHT?
and I trust!
my crazy sense of humour used-here...right?

-- where the sun is melting my
IGLOO!...so I needs t'find a better place to reside-in (move over
squirrels/chipmonks?). ANYONE KNOW OF: a nice warm place in the world
some-where, where one might do gardening all year round? <=awe forget it
