We start off the show talking about SIPS or sub irrigated pots/planters. Jack and spartan grown both grow in SIPs and offer feedback on how they run their style (earth box and city pickers) as well as some of the benefits and management practices. We show off some videos of spartan growns plants in the sip and answer many SIP related questions for the first 45 minutes of the show, along with a mix of other chat Q&A. We give an update on using 50 degree Celsius 122f, water to treat root mealy bugs and its efficacy on the bugs balanced with effects on the plants. Dr mj coco has to leave at the 1 hour mark when Jack sends the zoom link to the chat to allow any growers who would like to join to share or ask questions to enter the panel. Midway thru second hour @Potent Ponics joins the panel again and shares some good information on mosaic viruses/viriods, hop latent viroid, beet curly top virus and more. We discuss growing with autopots in organic vs synthetics as well as different ways to make DiY SIP containers and mention their advantages and disadvantages to different diy styles of SIP. We discuss termites, four lined plant bug and much more @zenthanol shares some white papers detailing some of the research on various topics we address within the IPM sections of the show.
