Following on from this post, below are details of my latest experiment.
My latest experiment, and the one that I least expect to succeed, is to try to grow a Cephalotus cutting in mycorrhiza and trichoderma inoculated sawdust using passive hydroponics.
This is an overview of the setup;
The bottom chamber is the reservoir, which contains deionised water and a wick. The wick feeds into the above chamber;
The centre is the growing chamber, which is filled with mycorrhiza and trichoderma inoculated sawdust, in which is planted a Cephalotus cutting;
Here's a close-up of the cutting, it's from a 'Hummer's Giant';
The top chamber is simply a 'lid' used to provide increased humidity;
