    Ceph with coffee

    I have long wondered if cephs would be compatible with coffee as a fertilizer (not trying to restart the old argument just something for fun). So I decided to give it a go with the few cephs I have. The first one has had a good increase in speed of growth and the second made a much larger pitcher. This could be due to a large number of factors as I did not run a control group or try to run a formal experiment, but it definitely didn't hurt them. Both were from cuttings about a year and 9 months ago if I remember correctly and might just be hitting their stride. Anyways, here are pics none the less which everyone likes!

    i doubt it would cause any adverse effects. peat tea is also a good booster for cephs as well.

    I took a half a sandwich bags worth, sometimes more sometimes less. I threw it in a gallon of water and used. I didn't think through it much just something I figured Id try.
