I know my growing skills have a lot of room for improvement too, I only have 2 VFT's and have only been in this hobby for about 2 years. I know my plants aren't quite as big and robust as many members plants are, but I just hope that I'll get there someday! Good luck with your growing, and hopefully we can both learn some tips and tricks on this forum!

I really hope that you feel more confident during the next photo contest, it would be wonderful to see an entry from you!Kind of you guys, but I think Earthy can handle it just fine without a swarm of coddling. If you're gonna dish it out, you'd better be ready to take it too. Earthy said so.

Earthy wrote:sorry you were offended, but I don't sugar-coat stuff to appease people. I lay it all out lol...The user this was directed at has never posted in the forums again since. So maybe we're all just better off making a little bit of an effort to be more kind and encouraging with our advice.
