    yeah i ate one of the cucumbers the other day. it got frost damaged so i plucked one off and holy shit it tasted so good.

    They were chicago pickling cucumbers and it seemed like they had some nutty taste to them like cashews.
    I'm planning to harvest the entire year with the things growing in the tent but it's more of an experiment at this phase.

    Changing out the nutrient reservoir every 1-2 weeks SUCKS ASS, so one day I hope to build a bigger system in my yard and put a tiny fish pond to manage the nutrients.

    Gonna go ahead and add that yes its a bitch to change out the water every week but its still better than dealing with soil and watering everything twice a day

    i had mine going great. the root system grew to around 6-8" long and the leaves still haven't sprouted.

    so my dumbass put it into the grow tent with stagnant water in a jar. Pulled it out a week later with algae and brown roots and placed it into the NFT pipe system.

    The roots are still growing and the new parts of them are white, so I'm hoping it'll recover.

    Nope I couldn't take care of them. I'll try again someday. Those fuckers died in the type of soil I had them in.

    I've tried raising carnivorous plants before, more specifically pitcher plants and in my experience they are difficult to care for.
