Hey /b/ I'm growing watermelon mainly so I can sell it and because I felt like it. As you can see the lid can come off and that I've got one growing already, it's from the another set that didn't go very well.
Nice,are melons less common in bongistan? What are your plans for when they outgrow those pots?
Here's my indoor tomato /herb setup ,I've got a bunch of succulents and a bamboo plant that's recovering from a mite infestation
Why are you growing upside down and sideways watermelons? Are you trying to attract anti-gravity negros?
Here's a timestamp
I'll simply move them to bigger pots also nice setup anon. and no melons aren't common.
>wow that's so shiny it makes me want to smack it
Here's a closer look at the sprout.
What will do with them?
I was thinking of selling the melons if that's what you're thinking and I'd obviously keep one for the seeds.
And about the floating melanin enriched fellows?
I haven't planned that far.
Here's an update on the sprout as you can see I've misted the greenhouse a bit.
Here's another update. I had to start again because the last set died so I decided to start with a new kind of seeds, Crimson sweet I think they're called. Forgot to ask this last time but you guys got any names for them? I'm only growing the two at the moment to be clear
>Forgot to ask this last time but you guys got any names for them? I'm only growing the two at the moment to be clear
Nig and Ger.
Either that or mon & key
Looks Nig is doing well
looking good nig grow :)
WITH ARMS WIDE OPEN
WELCOME TO THIS PLAAACE I'LL SHOW YOU EVERRYYYTHIIIINGG
Thanks guys I hope these won't die on me.
looks like Nig id growing and really fast. Ger will be growing soon. Don't ask how I know.
>Don't ask how I know.
Why can't I ask?
shhhhh. You'll see fren.
I don't see anything
is that a sprout? I can't tell
Yes. Nice trips btw anon. Also an update on Nig while I'm at it.
Thats some sexy looking soil OP.
>tfw live in California and the soil is so full of clay you may as well put seeds in an empty pot
Thanks anon. I've tried other batches of watermelon with a mix of cocohusk and compost but it had root aphids in them so they kept dying :(
Look at him go.
>not living east of the Mississippi where random garbage in the gutter can sprout into fruit trees.
nig is looking strong, so proud of him! how long before he'll utter his first words?
I don't know. What do you think his first words will be?
"shieeeeet nig grow wher da whyt mellon at, muhfugga bix nood gibsmedats fuk raycis"
Sorry I don't speak sub 90 IQ.
Just a little curious what would you lads want me to do with any of the melons once they bare fruit. Should I sell ger and keep nig? or just sell them both?
How much can you sell them for anyway? For the amount of care you have put into them, I'd just enjoy the literal fruits of your labor.
Nigger, what are you doing?
Cut a hole out and fuck one or both.
I would most likely keep Nig seeing as he is growing the fastest and his seeds would a little more valuable than Gers. Unless something comes up who knows.
Been making too many pngs. made it a png instead of jpeg sorry fren.
An update on Ger and pic of them together. :D
>I actually want to try fucking a melon down
/d/ is the new /b/. :(
wait they're in the same pot? how is that gonna work out when they become nigger hueg?
I don't have another green house for the other plus I can take a cutting if the do get big enough.
Is it just me or is Ger growing really fast?
younger brother syndrome, trying to live up to his big bro expectations and eventually surpassing him
I don't if to be concerned or impressed with him.
*I don't know
sorry little tired at the moment.
OH SHIT MOTHERFUCKERS me happy :D
>Ger grew taller than his bro
WHAT THE FUCK
I was thinking Nig would get his true leaves first but now I'm not sure.
Made a banner featuring Nig. What do you guys think?
It should be 300x200, but it's pretty neat
make it 300x100 and I'll add it
I did it choose which ever one fits better.
I think 2 is cuter.
Thanks anon. Nice nickname
>Look at me look at me, I'm the Alpha melon now.
ger must be secretly taking steroids at night, post nig for comparison
Here's you comparison pic anon, also when I looks carefully enough you'll see the true leaves starting to form it's about the same in both.
ho lee fuk, nig got owned overnight, is he going to be ok?
I would think he'd be alright there's coco-husk around the pot, it'll hopefully provide space for both their roots.
Also thanks anon.
Surprise /b/! We have a new arrival.
oh shieeeet it's tyrone!
It's an illegal immigrant!
Here's another pic.
Why are you growing sperm in a pot?
I need to know what happened to nig and ger and tyrone
Tyrone is turning out to be the tallest/lankiest, Nig and Ger's true leaves are developing well and that's about it.
he must've stolen nig and ger's gainz
It's because Tyrone doesn't have a light source so he leans to closest one (i.e. the light outside or in the room) to him thus causing him to be tall.
can't tell if true or fake
try giving him a music source so he leans the other way out of curiosity
best be good not nig bopz
plants like jazz
No, no, no, no, no. You've got it all wrong.
That's one of my favorite albums, really.
Have this too. https://yewtu.be/watch?v=JxdMp4hDXSs
This thread went from good to great
Could be a step better if he used one of the songs that was posted for it.
You're right. Lets beat him up and dress him in girls clothing and force him to make out with us its not gay.
Thats it, its not gay that the important part.
Can you fags get a room already? I'm trying to grow some watermelon here.
My only request
The plants or the fruit?
Why? slapping them is mean anon.
Update: They grow up so fast.
SHIT SHIT FUCK FUCK TYRONE IS FUCKING DEAD NOOOOOOOOOO
What happened anon? Why did he die?
Too tall for his own good. I knew I should've put him some supports shit
Nig and Ger stole all his nutrients.
record yourself yelling "TYRONE, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO" like you just saw your parents murdered in front of you
You can save him OP, just prop him up and he'll get better, r-right?
pour out a 40 for out dead homie.
Already tried it. He doesn't look good to me.
lmao bro lynching tyrone wont bring him back
Alright I used some blue-tack to hold him up I'll post a pic when he either gets better or dies.
I'm starting to think that tyrones death wasn't an accident.
Oh come on anon why would I do that?
Update. just noticed that Ger has a third leaf. Neat.
Gold experience requiem?
we will never forget Tyrone.
Tyrone was a lanky ass buster.
I hope you aren't planning on leaving him on the shady side of that paper towel there man.
He's already dead I wouldn't worry about it. My only hope is that this doesn't happen to the others
Here's another update. Should I be worried about Ger?
Will it steal itself?
I hope not.
what about nig? ger is looking good tho
What about nig? He's not the one with a wilting leaf
Ok I'm going to keep a close eye on these two anyone got any suggestions? Also Nig's birthday was yesterday and Ger's is on Sunday :D
you've had those for ONE year?
I say birthday but what I meant was the same day I saw Nig and Ger. Sorry
>I say birthday but what I meant was the same day I saw Nig and Ger.
The day Nig first sprouted was November 3rd and the day Ger spouted was the 6th.
maybe give them a lil stick so they don't fall over and fucking DIE liek tyrone
I figured out what's wrong with them, root aphids, nasty little niggers that suck the life out of a plant you guys have now idea how many plants these fuckers have ruined for me.
Another update. Put some sticks near them like >>6546 said unlike my last post >>6720 I have no fucking clue what's going on. It could be root aphids, could be nematodes, it could be completely natural and I'm just being a paranoid bitch. Here's a few pics for anyone who's got any ideas the other thing of note is the marks on Ger's stem, God I hope I can fix this
I think this might be it for Ger I'll have to wait and see lads. I'll try to germinate a seed and start again.
Just like into pesticides.
He saying you need to into pesticides.
Yeah and maybe some fungicide
Hey anon, I might be able to help ya. It looks like your keeping your soil too moist. Also where did you get that soil? If it was store bought take a pic of the packaging. If not it you should've probably sterilized it first. The damage to the seedlings looks to be the result of bacteria. (could be wrong tho). Also what cultivar are you growing, you likely said in the above posts but I'm too lazy to read through them all. Pics related are some melons I grew this past summer.
Hey anon, thank you so much for the help I was also assuming that it was root aphids initially due to the little fuckers killing my other attempts 3 not including Nig and Ger but I was thinking over watering could be a possibility. I've got some hydrogen peroxide coming tomorrow but I don't know if Ger can stay alive until then, see pic related, I do have an idea to just cut from where it's still green on the stem and try to get him to regrow from that but as you can see I'm no gardener and that could kill the poor guy, I still do have more than enough seeds and Nig is doing ok from what it seems Hasn't changed since my last post Thanks again and nice melons. I was thinking of scrounging some money together to get a Bonsai tree and name it after a certain horror writers cat but I'll probably be stretching myself too thin with the apparent large amount of management Bonsai need
a shit sorry forgot the pic
peroxide is more useful when trying to clean the plant from exterior pests, and it's possibly harmful if you pour in into the soil. As it will just sit in the soil and fuck up the many biochemical mechanisms that keep the plant alive. So as of right now there isn't much you can do to help him other than laying off on the watering (see pic related for some guidance). In the future I'd heavily recommend you bake or steam the soil to sterilize it (see second pic)
As for the bonsai tree, it's probably a bit too much. It takes A LOT of work to keep them healthy and pretty. If you really wanna get into that sort of stuff I suggest starting with some more hearty and faster growing plants to really get the experience of how to prune and graft effectively. I'd personally start with an indoor rose plant, but you should do some research to see what you wanna grow and if it fits your needs. Don't get discouraged if you fail the first couple times, pruning and especially grafting are a real bitch to get right (I have yet to get a graft to succeed to this day).
yep that looks like bacterial wilt, doubt he'll survive. :/
This is quite a comfy thread, I might post my garden progress for next season. I've got lots of stuff planned so it should be interesting.
Hey anon Thanks for the advice at least I've got a less of a vague idea what what to do now more or less. I was thinking of transplanting Nig and taking a cutting of Ger to leave him in a dilute Peroxide solution >3%ish but I want a pro's opinion on that idea. Thanks again for the advice.
Sorry if this is a shit idea I had to bite the bullet and cut Ger Hopefully heal form roots. Now is only a matter of time I guess, also I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that it's root aphids the nematode will arrive today so I can nip that issue in the bud before it gets to Nig as well
oh fuck no, poor ger got circumcised
Pour a 40 for my homie.
A little mini update I'm planning to get use some of the other seeds to start again, is it too early?
Why would it be? In other new I recently collected some red ceder saplings, and hooping they survive the transplant.
Nig fell over Tyrone style. I've got some supports up for him hopefully this won't be the end of him
Nice anon! Hope they survive I was thinking of taking a cutting off of a tree near me but not right now.
are you just a sadist torturing watermelons sprouts?
You think I like doing this?
why do you think so low of me anon?
Nig is still alive??? Damn can you take a pic of the leaves for me?
>cutting off of a tree near me but not right now.
Right now would actually be the best time to take cuttings from trees. As in the winter months woody plants are more likely to take root. Though I suggest you start with something more herbaceous like a weed of some type as spring rolls around. Just to get familiar with the process of taking cuttings. since herbaceous plants are a lot easier to root without the need for rooting powder or any of that nonsense.
Melon-anon confirmed racist and vicariously takes his anger out on niggers by torturing what they love most.
Oh here you go in the pic I had to take the lid of the propagator for a time today then I used a straw to prop him up the leaves have dried a bit hopefully that won't be a problem.
Get The Fuck Out and stay out nigger
Could probably have a dedicated cultivation thread on /k/ where anons show off their plants.
That's not a bad idea anon
I second this.
I want to smack the hands of the one making this ugly cringey piece of shit. Fucking cringe. You arenf funny dude, think twice before making anything ever again.
this was from the very earliest days /k/ so please excuse the cringiness of it.
4/k/ that is
Alright I've made the thread:
all of my new updates will be on /k/
ignore him anon he's just a lost /tv/fag leave him to his cuckchanery
wait a minute
>daughter has cat ears
>the cat on the right is resting on /an/'s ass with a smug face
Kill yourself newfag.
there's no need to be upset
Need is irrelevant. >>>/cuckchan/
Are you ok anon?
No, I'm just regular anon.
I would like to declare myself a good anon, better than regular.
I believe this anon, and so should you.
Are ok anon and regular anon different? Is regular anon not ok?
regular anon is not ok
Is not ok bad, or can not ok indicate being better than ok. Or is "ok" an indicator of a lack of badness, meaning that in order to not be ok you must be suffering in some capacity.
starting to think you are not ok
>Is regular anon not ok?
Regular anon hasn't been ok since 2007.
Hi guys I'm back with really fucking sad news, NIG AND GER ARE FUCKING DEAD but I've got some seeds and I'm ready to start again hope fully I don't go full nigger and fuck it up this time.
Fuck this gay earth.
I demand that the new ones be called Nig junior and Ger junior., now don't overwater them this time.
I won't I promise
FUCK THIS GAY YEAR EVEN THE BABIES ARE DEAD
They aren't dead, they are sleeping.
Probably the only time /b/ will ever mourn over a dead nigger. RIP pour a 40 for me.
Guess who's back, back again. Sorry for the lack of updates I had to get a new pack of seeds which you can see in pic related, I've got two seeds will keep you guys posted. The dream is back anons.
How many lives must you take before you are satisfied?
not him but I'm guessing he's going for the 25 streak and tactical nuke
owwww look how cute is that little brown seed
They're growing fast, looking good so far.
No more plant based lives will die at the hands of my retardation.
yes, yes they are.
What are you going to name these sacrifices
if you kill these two too...
Go ahead and make your plans this guy is useless
Alright it's been about 5 days and they've already got leaves. Which one should be Nig Jr. and who should be Ger Jr.
left: Nig Jr.
right: Ger Jr.
after what happened to all the rest, I have little faith for these two
They're named after his thumb
so what's with nig jr and ger jr
Sadly had to prune parts of or entire leaf on Nig and Ger Jr. Sorry for the lack of updates life is just a little hectic at the moment.
>he's still torturing them
PLEASE ANON I DON'T MEAN IT!!!!!!!!!!!111 b-but the dubs say otherwise :(
He'd better torture animals. It would be more exciting!
OP, you must erect a shrine to Suiseiseki (or buy a figure if you can find one) and place it adjacent to your farm. Otherwise I just see no way of growing your watermelons correctly.
OP why did you circumcise your plants?
because he's jew
Muslims also do circumcision.
Because Fung ass was growing
Nig Jr. is starting to grow again :D
>Muslims also do circumcision.
Yeah, it's almost like they're exactly the same, which is hilarious when you realize what one would do to the other given enough vaseline and firecrackers.
NICE! I looks like it's getting it's first true leaf. Keep up the good work!
Ger Jr got too tall :'(
>he killed another one
:( no buli plz
You coward, torture animals instead of boring plants!
He already tortures his mom (Hunams are also animals!).
Maybe he sometimes tortures his mom sexually, too!
He's a NEET, without a job, without earning money, just living in his mom's house.
So it means that he's torturing his mom.
No I'm not a psychopath
Hey retard ever stopped to think the entire world lives in NEETdom now?
onlyreal zzzchan oldfags will remember when this thread started as a fun project and ended with multiple murders
>ended up with multiple murders
It ended up with a hate crime, mind you.
The cute anime girl has motivated me to take more pics Nig Jr. is still growing well and there are 3 leaves coming through. ignore the other pot
I commend you for extending the kingdom of The Green, but are you afraid the roodie-poos around you will scent their prey on the wind and break into your domicile to rape the melons?
I will use everything in my power to make sure the negro menace doesn't get a hold of my melon.
Did summun say "melon?"
No no melons here just strawberries
>he switched targets
>using a strawberry label to deceive the melon-rapists
I applaud your cunning, but it won't work, OP. They can't read.
Make sure you raise it well.
Nig Jr. is doing good and the strawberries are doing even better
So how come you stopped updating? Your thread will die you know.
Did you buy a Suiseiseki shrine yet?
Sorry things are getting in the way, but I can reassure you anons that Nig Anontomeu II is fine
the one's that have grown the most are the strawberries. By the way anyone got a name for the strawberries?
I know OP doesn't have enough strawberries for this but has anyone made strawberry wine? I made it a while ago and it's pretty good. Might make my own thread on making wine out of different fruits to see which homemade fruit wine is the best if I decide to be not lazy
OP killed every plant he's tended to
You're going to need a bigger land.
Growing Berries isn't suitable on my nation.
Haven't made fruit wines before, but might try with mulberries later this year.
Dandelion wine is a good. the dandelions grow easily, but it can be tedious to harvest them.
Strawberries.....maybe Shortcake, as in Strawberry Shortcake?
>anyone got a name for the strawberries?
How about "Anal Surprise"?
I... must... BUMP
Ok. Here's another update on Nig Jr as you can see one of his very first leaves are wilting nothing seems to be happening to the others so I'm just waiting and the strawberries are about the same. :DD
too bad that once they're ready to harvest, niggers will steal them. Bix nood, whitey!!
A question for the OP, I'd actually like to post a few of my own watermelon plants in this thread. I recently came into possession of watermelon plants myself. they're small, already sprouted seedlings and I'd like to share them here, unless you think I'd be stealing your image board clout.
Just post them retard.
Not OP but I was going to suggest posting them but
>unless you think I'd be stealing your image board clout
With this cuntish comment I think you should fuck yourself.
Seems like youre sensitive about people basically calling you out for being an attention whore on imageboards. Post this shit on reddit
I honestly dont follow hashtags and social media stuff. Post your plants on your Twitter
im a registered nurse
Hash tag about it, youll get more attention
i only make tiktok videos in empty hospitals
What's with normalfags and dancing?
And I don't mean dancing in general, but dancing as a form of advertisement in stuff like that and actual commercials. It's like they don't know how to human so they just dance because that might make them look friendly and not a person with an agenda.
>they dance awkwardly because they've forgot how to human
You're actually really close. They do it because they are out of touch and have no idea how to outreach to people so they do a silly dance or come up with a silly two sentence slogan that rhymes.
>not a person with an agenda
<how could such a silly person have an agenda? Much less one which could threaten me?
Not everything is a conspiracy samefag
melons are dead, strawberries are dead, everything is dead, op is a sadist murderer of plants. more at 11
>strawberries are dead
Op should have grown weed instead
Post pics next time Faggot and stop being a downer. Some of the strawberries have died but the melon is still here and there are some strawbs kicking around.
>Some of the strawberries have died
>the melon is still here
>the melon singular
>some strawberries kicking around
Two questions, and be honest here. Do you have a fertilization/irrigation plan i.e. do you know how much water and fertilizer they should get each day, and do you know the fc you should be growing them at?
>clearly a vampire
I wouldn't mind trying some irrigation/fertilization stuff but I wouldn't able to do it at this very moment and to answer your other questions no I do not the exact amount of water and the like. I just did this out boredom and I've kept on trying because it's relatively inexpensive and I want this story to end happy. Nice digits btw fren.
>I want this story to end happy
Bumping for happy end.
Well these digits can't go to waste so I must respond. I started some seeds in mass for one purpose to plant them outside to see what will happen(pic related) and planted the fastest growing one into a pot(second pic). Seeing as that anon never got back to me I'll see what I can do look around for any small irrigation systems, I do have some experience will pvc Me and my grandad made a blow dart gun when I was 12 Anyway have a nice day everybody.
Good luck! I'm hoping to see some big beautiful melons.
That's some pretty good CG.
I'm so fucking glad I saved this one from the outdoors, he's growing very fast on his own. The gods are smiling on this melom :DDDDD
Surprise lads! We have a new new new arrival and the first one is growing fast maybe a little too fast.
If you keep selecting them you may create a super negro plant.
Keep selecting them?
Your ability to grow plants may be laughable, but watching it behind a screen makes it much more tolerable. Never stop posting.
t. crop connoisseur.
Well I've only ever grown sunflowers but thanks fren :D I'll do my best :DDD
I doubt it
Hey guys I'm back, sorry for not updating for a few days I was on a trip with family, anyway here are the new pics I'm thinking of getting a tomato cage for them.
Here's some of my own watermelon OP. I've posted this in /a/'s cooking thread as well. Since OP has named his watermelons, I will name mine as well. I shall call this watermelon plant "Rodney king" :DDDDDD. I have a couple of photos of Rodney, images related. I have one at the start of his life from about a month and half ago and one from roughly a week ago. He grew quite quick and is pretty big for his size. I think I'll use the watermelon that Rodney produces to make some watermelon popsicles or maybe even a watermelon margarita. I've also consider pickling the rind as well.
Speaking of that do you have any watermelon recipes, /b/ros?
the captcha over here kept breaking. It's not that I couldn't successfully complete it, it's because it kept changing images before I could input the answer and its final image told me that the captcha wasn't available any more. Has anyone else had this problem or is it just me?
dude you fucked up this is a cursed thread and all plants posted in it are gonna die due to OPs black thumb
sorry you had to hear it like this
Amazing to see another fren growing melons :DDDDDD. Here's an update on the new melons they are growing pretty well but now I don't know what to call them should I stick to Nig and Ger? or could you guys come up with some new names?
Shakka and Bafana
Hey guys I'm back and it looks like the new melons are doing very well so I'm hoping it works out :D
Woah you did it.
Are you going to replant them outside?
I'm also happy to report that Rodney Kang is growing successful as well. He already has 3 immature watermelons. I'll post pictures of him tomorrow :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD
Looking good. Keep up the good work.
You should surround them with work applicants so niggers wont come and try to steal them.
