Re: CULT:Increase

I have been fascinated with the amount of increase per plant for some 
time now.

A couple of years ago, in one of my bored periods, I put all my 
plants onto a spread sheet and counted each and every one for 
increase and coded each.  This took some time as I had about 500 
different varieties then.  I intend to do the same with flowering, 
but so far seem to have some problem or other popping up at flowering 

The results were very interesting.  I was trying to do a comparison 
of varieties.  Factors influencing growth were going to be next.

In addition, I have plans to plant many of one variety and use a 
different growing method/fertilising, etc. using some as control.  
This hopefully will commence next year.

If anyone is interested in giving some information to me regarding 
these, or wanting to know more, please contact me as I would like to 
extend my information.
