    It’s mostly cherry tomatoes. Had some herbs in there but the tomatoes completely took over lol. It’s one of those indoor aero gardens from Kohl’s. We started it in early February and some are ready to pick. 

    Very cool. Was looking at those before I fell into the rabbit hole. Hard.

    Eta: What’s your light cycle on that now? 12 on/12 off to fruit?

    Hogan is going to make us wear masks until we have a widely available vaccine, isn't he? I'll be in New Hampshire.

    If that’s what it takes to get you out of this forum...

    the local nursery we got plants from last year delivers. we need to make a mulch order, so going to order some of those plants you recommended @FXW176 as well. Thank you again! 

    That’s awesome re delivery. And you are most welcome! If you or yours are down here in NOVA anytime soon, I have/will have seedlings of most of the plants I hunt butterflies with. Waiting on a few more seed deliveries before I start another mass germination. More than happy to hook ya up.

    Because everyone I know has a 2’x4’x5’ grow tent in their dining room. With LED lights. And USB fans. I’ve legit lost it...

    Mappy! Been awhile, hope you and yours are doing well! 

    My prob four fav plants in the butterfly garden are the swamp milkweed (Asclepias Incarnata), Pentas, Lantana, and Celosia.

    Only the milkweed is an perennial of the four, but doubles as a nectar and host plant for the monarchs. (And for some random critter I haven’t been able to id yet.)

    The others are annual nectar plants with the Pentas attracting the most butterflies, the Lantana a great all around pollinator attractor, and the Celosia being the bee magnet. Results may vary...

    The pic of that swallowtail cat came from the dill, rue, fennel, and parsley containers I have in the b garden. New addition this year and have never raised those cats before. Now I’m caring for a dozen. P cool.

    Are you looking to provide a habitat or raise a few? Regardless, it’s waaay fun. :)
