Khat on my back porch
    #3076262 - 09/01/04 01:32 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)



Some khat that I have in pots on my back porch, the roots grow so slow and sparse that these plants are going on their 3rd year in these same sized pots.

Those are broad leaf khat, apparently. My gnome is raising narrow leaf khat. I'll post a pic up this afternoon if I get to it. To the left, it looks like a d bosseranum but could be anything even heimia. It does not look happy there. Below, I see salvia if I'm not mistaken. My gnome grows khat out in the sun where it does well. It is not super fast growing but should do better than that. I suggest repotting into larger pots and giving them some sun. Naturally you have to acclimate them to the sun little by little. Do you have to take yours in in the winter? That will slow them down.

All my attempts at growing khat have failed. I once found a site a few years
back that sold potted plants for 25 $  but now its nowhere to be found.
I have ordered numerous seed and have failed with all.

Looks like uve been nibbling on it :grin:

I've never seen a narrow leaf khat except for pictures.

>>To the left, it looks like a d bosseranum but could be anything even heimia.

To the left is a very stressed lavendar, the variety I do not know. I took it home with me when i was TA'ing a Intro to Hort class at school. They were stickking cuttings on that day and there were many left over. So i took it home and rooted it, then neglected it for what's gonna be a year now.

>>It does not look happy there.

I just moved it there, it's root bound too.

>>Below, I see salvia if I'm not mistaken.

Yeap salvia.

>>My gnome grows khat out in the sun where it does well. It is not super fast growing but should do better than that..

I had it out in full sun, but my landlord was being an intimidating bitch and kept calling me up because my plants were on the back deck, so to shut her up i moved them onto the second tier near my door. The plants in those two pots are from like one of 3 original cuttings i had. They were doing better in full sun, but alas my sanity is more important to me than slower growing and greener looking khat.

>>I suggest repotting into larger pots and giving them some sun.

I've checked the pots recently it, and it's not time to repot them yet, though putting them in a larger pot (like 20 gallons) wouldn't hurt it either so long as i'm careful in my watering.

>>Do you have to take yours in in the winter? That will slow them down..

They go inside, into an Antonius style 4 tier greenhouse with fluorescent plant lights to over winter, as i'm around latittude 45 N.
