"Comments are always encouraged. And again. Today's guest is a good friend of the show. Somebody who's been in studio several times and that will be Bob Reed Miller when his time comes in about 15 minutes, so we'll be talking. Summer succulents. I don't take care of succulents during the hot weather and summertime look at Jonny's All tanned look Good first thought that came in my mind with summer, not summer nights. Some our summer nights summer succulent summer Now I hope we get a close up of his face. Look at that. Just a movie star. You know, I had 100 degree temperatures at my house. In Santa Ana winds, and it was almost impossible to keep up with the watering. Just, you know, things burning. You know, one of the things I told you guys, what are you doing in my voice? Nothing. That was my phone. I'm putting you up actually bringing you because you have such a timid little voice. I want to bring it up, but it was so hot that the How hot was it? Waiting for the peppers? The pepper fruit was burning. And You know commercially when they're planning peppers in hot areas like that, they put row covers over so to reflect the heat so that the fruit itself doesn't burn. You know if you're if you're pepper has plenty of leaves, and the fruit is maturing under the leaves. That's not a problem, which, by the way, my pepper is because it is covered by a couple of leaves around it. Yeah, you got a little bit of shade Tio dio, but that that hot sun you know, 100 degree temperatures and the hot winds That was just too much. And you said that it at some point during the week you had to water your roses two or three times a day that was during that period was What was the Wednesday Thursday like that third one is really hot. Yeah. Think on the Costa was no 1990 on the beach is actually which is even worse. And people sometimes get confused because they think, Oh, I've been growing in full sun the whole time. Shouldn't be a problem. No, it's a problem. You have whether that you know you. Cloudy cloudy cloudy, right sunny all of a sudden plants. Don't Hardin off that easily difference between sunlight in temperature because it could be cloudy and if it's 100 degree He's still got a problem. Of course, the sun does compound that, and there's a difference between a hair dryer hair dryer in a blowtorch, a hair dryer, hair dryers. Anyway, we've got a good show lined up today. Questions, comments. Ah, comments I should say are encouraged as we check out Facebook, hot weather and and dry weather brings up the topic of succulents and glance that our water resistant but Is Tiger mentions. You know, it depends on what they've been doing up until that period of time, so.

"On talk radio and just a very few minutes ago with Mica Ruth, and he's with primaries by the sea. Is that right, Tiger? From areas by the sea where Mary is by the coast. Serena Mike Serena, and there's a community in Los Angeles. That's where the family lives follow, Serena Serena, Serena says so again that take this program in any direction you would like to a Sfar ahs any questions, comments? What's happening in your backyard? Your front yard your side yard problems, questions. We'll do our best to answer them. And, as John said, so eloquently last hour released the last couple of breaks. We will eventually get to your questions if I like to get to immediately, you know, Theresa made a comment earlier about on her perfume area cuttings using Cinnamon. To stop fungal growth. Cinnamon seems to be kind of an answer to a lot of things. Well, do you remember when we had Bob Reed Miller on talking about succulent cuttings, that a lot of them they they do this commercially. They dip the cuttings and cinnamon before they plant. Frank. So it does have good anti fungal benefits. And I think we've also used cinnamon before Teo. Here in advance or keep answered. Bang his work, Tiger. You're researching something there. Am I being too nosy? No, no. I'm trying to read our email thread that we were going through before so I can catch way should mention also because you pointed this out to me during the break that those of you watching on Facebook, you can get closed caption on your screen in Tiger. You pointed out that it was on the bottom, right? Bottom right hand side and you click it on in your little settings window, right little settings wheel. John was amazed at how accurate it is. So if you don't you speak clearly if you don't have the volume on You watch. I'm watching. And still you know what we're saying is, as I watch it right there. You can pick it up on close caption by which, if this show is getting better all the time, just amazing every now and then we get a comment about how the volume's too low or they can't hear right or just something in. You've mentioned many times that all all you need to do is refresh your screen right and 90% of the time that takes care of the problem, right when I say just a couple of people or one person with an audio Problem and nobody else has that problem, just refresher screen And usually it does come back. But again, if you do want to set that closed caption, you'll read the closed captions on the left hand side of your screen, right hand side of the screen to a clique that on Awesome. I memorized all that target from what you told me. All right? So what is it? What is going on? Gentlemen, I I have a lot of other projects When I get home. I imagine John It's It's nothing but getting ready for the house to be built moving plants around planning plans, putting in trees that never need water. Things like that never, ever need water and again because of the type and I mentioned this in in the newsletter in the article that I think this is a problem around the country, but it's very difficult to find. Varieties of trees nowadays, and I think a lot of that has to do with the big box stores not carrying trees in a lot of the independent garden centres going out of business, where the selection used to be. So on these on these trees, If you want them, you have to grow him yourself. And I was so excited to find the company that I mentioned the previous hour. The seed stead. With their selection of African trees. So if you're in a dry area of the country, they'll grow in other parts, too, but definitely in those areas. You know that occasion variety, not the occasion, Ray the variety the occasion tree. I mean, just this week. I wanted to bring this up because You were talking about planting some occasion. One of our clients had an occasion. I think it's data file the shoestring, Keisha Tone three Good, substantial sized tree. I think it was in a 24 36 inch box when it was planted was kind of a willow here answering. Yeah, weeping kind of a willow appearance. Had fallen over on their property. And so I went out there I inspected. Get in inspected. It looks like a gofer head in half of the root system and falling over. But To the extent of the resiliency of the tree is that you know the other half of the root systems. Okay, the trees looking okay. Weaken water. We can fertilize. Hopefully, it'll come back and won't be too damaged. Re staked it and they're very resilient. Very hardy trees. Those occasions and I think, to the extent of what you were saying the problem. With unique trees. To some degree is people are always looking tio their plants or they're shrubs in tow certain spots, and not always can a plant be fit into a certain spot. So therefore, in the industry run into this situation where we have to have a compact trees Clean trees. Maybe ones that you know like here we were talking about with the chameleons are more dense because people want shade. They don't want a lacy look to it, But I mean, that's where you get a lot of the natural beauty from and it's a It's a bummer that you don't see more variety in Ah, in a garden. You know, I would imagine when you go into these places to assess where people want a lot of times. What they want is not the best idea. It's almost like looking at furniture place furniture in the house. The couch goes there. The chair goes here. So you're talking about people wanting trees Cable? I have this little area here with this little area to be filled with this or that or a tree, And it's like that's not gonna work. You're cramming too much into one area. John. We've seen this 1000 times. And I know every listener out there right now has done this where they go into a garden center, and they might ask for some help, and they say, I'm looking to put this Plant in this spot and the nursery professionals. That's not the right choice for you. You know, it's either going to get too big or too dark, or it's gonna have to much water and not enough war or too much sun. Yeah, or too much sun, and then the people come to think about it. That area's a little weather or a shadier or it doesn't get his. Which water and I'm like, I'm like, I don't know what you described it won't grow there..

"All the great guys and girls up there. The team keeping us on the year It is just about what listening and radio we're about 10 minutes after the hour. Facebook live. It doesn't matter because we're here doesn't go until we stop. You know. Bob was talking about his dipstick prior to the break, and he also had an idea using a Mexican Beach Pebble and remember how that went. You know you did that? I didn't know. It was so impressed that you did this when you had your You're falling, you word like quite not with us. You know, Brian told me just sent me a note during the week and said, Do you ever listen, our show? It's really good. You can tell me. Did you ever read our book? It was pretty good guilty is charged. You know, that's the second time you said that to me and ask me about how you came up with that idea is the second time. All right. It's not gonna happen again. Mark in it. It is a great idea if you lay a flat beach soft, smooth. A pebble from a beach to lay it on the surface of a pot. Just pick it up and look at the bottom side. You can tell if there's moisture or not oil. Well, the nice thing about those tunnels. It'll show on the stone little targeted or making damper. Wet looking so well. That's the nice thing about the Mexican beach people specifically black and so when they're dry, looking to have a grey look, But then I had a little bit of moisture is a very definitive black look so definitely see the moisture in there. Um, well, we don't want to keep it too much longer. But we do have one more question that I thought would be fun to cover or they're edible succulents. I mean, aside from that prickly pear that would cover that's a nightmare for me. You would not believe the amount of e mails I get. Can I eat this? It's like Have you ever been to a grocery store? And why would you want to? Yeah, There certainly are some When we talked about Nepalis policy is the big one, the plenty of paddles and it's really delicious and something you might not be used right off the bat because Depending on how it's cooked. It kind of has a little bit of that okra thing going on. That could be a little bit slimy. And then you have edible fruit and some succulent fruit on the frontiers is absolutely incredible. Some of them are just so delicious. A little bit of a trick, tryingto not get stuck and feel him. Whatever Onda course there's there's drinkable succulents. Well, there's a lot of people that take yellow Vera. Bill. Bill drink, that's and I, frankly, I've never tried it. I had sort of an allergy Talavera, So it's probably not a good idea. Always thinking or of tequila. Well, there you go. That one. I don't have it. How about that? Yeah, but you know, there are some other oddball things on I do not recommend. Let me think again. I do not recommend anybody trying. Um, but podia Which is a very strange plant from Namibia and places like that related to the East appeal. Leah's I believe very odd looking plant that's been used for years by the natives for Ah, Ah energy and keeping their weight down. And there was a big couple of years ago. A big push on of Judea supplements from whatever goodbye. I think that was after a Dr Oz show. So there are you know there are things out there. The native Americans around here have flowers. We're ah, really big part of the diet. They would sort of flour them and fry them. Well, I think the most common fruit from a succulent gonna be dragging proved. Yeah, absolutely A from a commercial standpoint, and that again is not unlike the appointee of fruit accepted it. Huge and there are no thorns their spines on it, and they're really good, really delicious. And actually, there's a difference. There are white ones that think ones, red ones, and there is a difference in flavor. Andi So they're just refreshing, really, really enjoyable. I know Altman's used to sell one called Halley's comment that way, talked about that It was one of the best tasting on straight. I don't know if they still do but way only do it every 75 years. That's very good, Bob. I love them. Lots of good info. Lots of good shatter. Thank you very much for joining us. Things were falling along on the show to be able to keep up with people's questions. Oh, it was It was a great way to do it like that. I've, uh I've been indoctrinated. Now I know how this works so there or it was just a blind phone call, So no, no, we'll have you back in 75 years. We'll have a good rest of the weekend in stay cool out there and we'll talk to you again. Thanks So much fun, Everybody. Anybody take care of Bob Reed Miller. Succulents cactus get another plug for the book's success with succulents available on Amazon. I think he'd get his lowest $4 for used copies, and some that are just like what a steel you know, John. I'm guilty of something. Everybody has. Most people have books on their coffee table. Coffee table books. I've got a Beatles book, Chargers book and designing by Succulents. I don't have your book and I feel ashamed. Yeah, but a lot of good information again. Your book, Bob. I mean your years and Bob's book Successful. There you go. For Jon and Bob talk. My copy of John and Bob's book is in our guest restroom. What does that say? Spokesman says it's going to be read. Yeah, exactly. Louie Seinfeld reference again. If you have any questions, comments on any topics continue. We still got a long way to go here on this talk radio and Facebook life. Good information from Bobby's A great guest. He kept up on Facebook with the questions. We'll have it back in studio at some point. Lots of fun stuff with him whenever he can introduce us into new things happening, because that's the thing at all. A game of commercial chicken brought to you by progressive where we see how long flow could go without talking about insurance. Ready. Go. So, um Have you.

"A garden. American will do no good. John is off the day. Bob reed. Miller's here. Bob doesn't give us his Email account. So we're not going to talk about that. Yeah, we'll give you his home. And let's see what gets us some people who have. That's the on Facebook have told us, they don't like rattlesnakes. They don't like bugs that are as big as hummingbirds raccoons looking window other things like that inside don't like insects, but I can see their facial expressions. I don't like anything. It says insect crossing, you know, on that line of insects, that you can see their faces when you creeps me out, praying menaces, why look a face. No way. They're cool. He keeps me. They look at you like an alien well it is it is an alien. And I'll tell you if you're another insect, you don't want to be attacked by a premium. They just eat you alive. Oh, yeah. Start with the head usually, so what what do they do? What are they good for everything has a purpose? What eight bugs? Yeah. I guess. Yeah. Insect control. Mantas are good. Because the bugs and they eat a lot of varieties of books. I mean, I've even heard stories of that meeting small small rodents lizards. Yeah. So, you know, I mean they're population control. I mean, there's always gotta be that balance out there. Yeah. Yeah. Everything is something that it eats and something that feeds. Yeah. You know, which is why we shouldn't be killing so many shark to the show. Again, real quick. That comedian Joe Rogan podcast you talking about how if, if like, like dolphins have really smart. Yeah. Yeah. And he because he's like a dolphin will come up to a fishing boat and just look at you. Meanwhile, you're fishing like you're putting stuff in the water to try to catch fish, but you never catch dolphin right? You don't ever catch a dolphin on a fishhook? Right. That's cutting nets, and they get right? But you never like catch dolphin by accident never have I never thought about that. But then he's like people on the other hand dolphins are smarter than people if there was a cheeseburger, going down the street, you would definitely least once a week up catch somebody going after that, even though they might. I don't know yet. Yeah, exactly catch it person. And you know what dolphins dolphins have protected people from, from sharks. Yeah. Yeah, I read stories and accounts where they'll get inbetween and the person divers like I didn't know why this dot com. Nudging me or whatever. And looking there's a shark. Yeah. They're very smart. And they love boats. When you're out there, right alongside Jim put on a little show. There is a picture you off the other day about the orca swimming with dolphins. Oh, really? Which is apparently very unusual. And orca is a dull Fionn exactly. She's, so, but I guess they're still not the best friends of me. Now, they're still has many friends. I don't think so either. But it was right there just jumped jumping through the way ban, but they're very smart. You talked about the, the seal on the iceberg and what they go there. They figure things out. You know, they like crows crows on one of the smartest animals on this planet, they use tools. Yeah. They've done a lot of experiments with them. They're very smart. And think about it. Those are actually dinosaurs. But crows. Yeah. Dinosaurs evolved into birds while the, the whole bird dinosaur there yet. But in terms of smart, how smart they are open. Imagine if they were like. Six feet tall. Wouldn't it will magin here? Let would heating hunted by them give it give it dolphin the thumb or a chromosome, and we're out of business, we're out. That's the thing that keeps the separation. They just recently found these monkeys on the caption, monkeys that are using stone tools, and they've never seen it anyplace before they're using stones to crack open these palm nuts, and they'll go and get the rock this just the right size. And they beat the crap out of the. Till it opens. And then, of course that's passed down from generation to generation to generation. They learned it at some point in the head, not up until recently. So they're coming for us, people tuning in, for the first time this is a nice animal show. Yeah. Dolphins. I did mention palm gardening American. They talk about all these nice little animals, things like that. So let's see today. What are you doing today? Bob after the show. Well, I guess I'm doing a podcast for the first time you are doing. Good. That's the, that's the right answer is very interesting in talking about orcas, which is a good thing about orchids, and it won't be on Facebook live. If you went to watch the podcast, and, and after that, I have no idea probably going to be doing some genealogy work. I've got a cousin actually I second cousin up in Washington. She's actually, my dad's cousin, but she and I are the same age. And so we grew up his partners in crime back in that. And so we're, we're talking swapping photos back and forth, about some of the Norwegian family, she's got photos of and I've got photos of, and so we're swapping back. And I imagine tiger you're out and about or not. I've got yard work today and we're Cujio's and where my Joe's and I'm going to entertain the children for a little while in the swimming pool. That's good. And then we have a twenty year high school reunion to go to. Let me let me feel you in on this. This is your high school. This is my wife. Oh well, not as dramatic. But, but here's what you'll find out he'll be people, you'll recognize it media, look, the same just a little older and others. You'll have no idea. No, they are. And you'll be amazed. And then once you find out who they are maybe there's a name tag. You'll start to see the resemblance of. Okay. Now, I'm starting to see it. It's amazing. You either recognize him or you don't. Yeah. But that'll be for your wife, too. Yeah. Yeah, yeah, I don't know. We'll see it'll be interesting, but, you know, I also live in the air to where it's different because a lot of these people, your friends with social media. So you've already up to date on you. You're already up to date when I graduated Facebook. I have I had to catch up with people, and then it's so funny. The last reunion reunion. I went to I looked around. I said, how can be points? Parents are here. Yeah. It was what your graduate really, you want to know that nine hundred seventy four okay because I graduated in seventy one so, so I would have been a sophomore when you would have been a senior. Yeah. Same thing. We didn't have social media. I don't know how they how do they ever really put together reunion before social media thought for a lot of effort to track people downs called sending mail by post office, but to get a hold of these people to find out where they are every job really in our class. There were quite a few people that were like on the missing list, like if anybody knows where this person is and another sad thing about reunions. They always have like a. Not with us. Yeah. Who's passed away? There was a little table with candles last time I went to my reunion and some people, you knew about others surprised, you know, this person live to be thirty thirty one curious when you graduated to find out how many you've been to because I've been to, I think it was our fortieth that we had. They're they're getting further and further out. Yeah. And smaller and smaller and less and less organized to, it's they're becoming more, like let's all meet at holiday park in Carlsbad. We'll have a big picnic. That's what it's gotten down to. I've on Facebook, our school has a page and it's becomes why don't we just made it. So, and so for a couple of hours, forget, the dressing up food and bring all the kids and the grandkids. And sometimes a great grandkids. I think I'm done going to reunions, it's you know, I don't really what am I gonna keep in touch with the handful of my bad says. And, and that's it. So you went to high school where tiger lakeside, lakeside, tan. L kappa. Yeah. Yeah. And we're going to tonight is for west hills, which was in Santa Dante. I used to live a mile from west hills high school back in the early two thousands. Yeah. Exactly. In fact, my, my roommate was a soccer coach. Oh, yeah. West hills. It looks like a new school though is knows new compared to the other schools. For sure. But, you know, it's funny as when whenever we go to, and it's not just reunions, but these social gatherings, I'm, I'm usually a really easy person for small talk, because, you know, instantly somebody talks about, you know, you wanna nursery landscape and what do you do they love to ask questions about plant? Oh, I got this. And you know, hey, Dr this. So, you know, it's, it's fun. But I'm definitely already into supporting a lot of little plant questions and yard questions and things like that, because it's always, it's always the initial, you know, when somebody's like, oh, yeah, I'm a brain surgeon. Yeah. That's so much, not so much questions. But plants people love to ask questions. It is amazing. Speaking of that, when you find out later on in life. What certain people did I knew this guy that had know hair down to his knees. He no pot smoking drinking nice guy. But nothing that we all weren't doing back then right now turns out, he's very successful attorney very, you know, went onto because somebody else went on to become a doctor and you think to yourself, so and so became a doctor. It's just a matter of finding yourself going through what you have to, to get to where you're going in a lot of people don't in high school. They don't for the necessarily talk about what they might be doing in life or what they wanna do. But it's always interesting. The, the, the questions to like you're saying about the anything plant related, you get grilled, and it's interesting to find out how many people don't know stuff about plants. Right. Right. And it puts you on that center stage where you get to tell them how. Really? Exactly, it is break time. We've got one more segment coming up..

So you have to have to force you gotta pull it pull it. And you're also worried in the action of you pulling it off of the plan. You're gonna squeeze too hard and you're going to like burst it, and then all the insights, come out. Yeah. Exactly. So if you squeeze them, they'll just burst. And the reason why what flavor I've seen as you feed him to the chickens. We find him in the nursery. They've all they must love feed wanted chicken. Have you ever seen that video of those orca whales playing with that deal, and there's throwing it back on the on the little iceberg? Yet that chickens are the same thing. They'll grab it take a bite shake shake it. Shays it, and grab it and throw it mine used to do that, too. I can imagine, though for a chicken must be like the best meal ever. Oh. Oh, meeting protein in everlasting Gump stuffer, right? Exactly. Now, people say, well, what are they come from? And how do they get there? It's a metamorphosis, amok, right? It's a beautiful moth, an absolutely gorgeous buff. And actually is hard caterpillars go, it's really pretty Caterpillar. Yeah. It is. Yeah, look at it, but. The moth comes in lays its eggs, on the tomatoes, and then before you know it, you got these big green monsters on your tomato plants, and then for people remember any modern or mostly night nocturnal journal that, that's why you don't see these things fluttering about your plant, but you see the horn, worms after the fact because they came in, in the evenings in started laying their eggs and all of that stuff. So we got a couple of answers to our question. What bothers you which scares you what frightens you in the garden. So Cathy says giant moths that resemble or as big as hummingbirds hummingbird hard mafia, I was thinking the same thing, and then let's see Patty says rattlesnakes have that as a definitely got somebody else, careless says. Yeah. Rattlesnakes don't like it. That's what I say. Just we were going to break. I don't snakes are the ones. I don't like snakes if I know what kind of snake it is defined venomous I'm that's it. But they always surprise you. You don't see the septa rattlesnake, you know, why rattlesnake rattles well, yeah. Surprise say. I'm here stay away from me. I don't make me bite you but I won't hurt any of those aches, except maybe the rattlesnake if you have. And you know what even worse, baby? Rattlesnakes. Because they release all their venom. They have no control adult snakes. No to go just a little bit of venom where the, the young ones. They just give it all just bump, and pumping on, I think we have a winner, though the somebody posted raccoons outside my bedroom window eating figs. That would be out because raccoon is like a little person, all yes, you saw them looking back at you in your bedroom. Definitely feel Coon story in they're not afraid even years ago moving into a house in alpine which for those of you living in San Diego. It's back east. It's up toward the mountains. So we're moving in. It's two in the morning, we're still moving. I look out the sliding glass door. There's a mother raccoon with five baby raccoons. And they're sitting there staring at us. This is kinda cool. I'm a kid from the beach. I'm going to go see what this is all about. I opened the door. They all put their hand up. Like, okay, they the person that lived here somebody's been fading feeding. So I didn't. So what do they do? Then they went to the Plum tree in the back. They climbed up the Plum, tree and tripped. But they were getting a free handout, obviously before in there. That's how they guy kept him from eating plums, or a seat back and Welby. I think that's it have a little something in the house for them. But you know you don't know if they're gonna bite, you know. And they can you. I mean they can I've seen a German shepherd that got bit in the fi by one. And it just about killed the dog. There's a guy YouTube channel called Tita the raccoon and it's his pet raccoon and they are funny. I mean, I've discovered that raccoons and ferrets or funny, they're playful. They're funny and ferrets are illegal here, in California, still haven't figured that one out, yet, Bob. What's the reason? Well, we have native ferrets. He's going to tell us we have native ferrets, but I think there's other ferrets that you can't have because that'll disrupt, the whole ecosystem, have they get Lucille breed, like crazy was at the black footed ferret. We've got not a big fair, fair. And now we're asking you I've seen them up at the nursery running through the property, and whatever and they're really fun to watch. And I was surprised the first time I saw make good pets. You get you get one this, domesticated. They make good pets. Coon would be a fun kind of horror story about him. Then I'll tell you off light off. We can't talk about. It on the air now, just because the person that had happened to might not want. Okay. That's okay. So remember, they are still wild animals the exactly the still wild animals and records, my, my aunt had a pet skunk when she was a kid was at desens- centered or whatever he sent it. My mother had one as a kid to made a good path. It is break time. We're gonna take a break step aside, as we approach thirty minutes after the hour. What scares you what, don't you like about gardening being outside? Let us know on Facebook. We've had a few answer so far. Data's Bob Reed, sitting in for John Bagnasco.

I'm Brian main, this was a great hour for questions comments, no matter what anything you're thinking about in the industry gardening. Horticulture. Give us a call. Eight five five four two four nine to five. You can also reach us right here, Facebook live in Valencia question immediately things looking good. Welcome. You made it through the first hour. Bob, I always make it through the first one second one. Oh, I see. This is this is the hour and we decided after the show today for those listening and watching that our podcast will be all about orchids. We've got Bob, Bob. You started off in orchids. Right. Well, it was a kind of a hobby thing, I was growing staghorn ferns for years and selling them out of the backyard and whatever. Somebody. I mean that's to me. That's is that really mainstream. Staghorn ferns. It was back in the seventies. Yeah. Started and it was. You know, the kid from New Jersey in never seen one before. And then saw one in found out, how easy was to grow them here, especially in southern California. And before I knew it, I had hundreds of them, and so started selling them. But then I got involved, the orchids through a friend of mine and wind up working part time for salon orcas in Swansea beach, and did that for about two years, and I would just go there on weekends and sometimes I get paid in orcas. Okay. So help me with my situation. I love orchids. I've come to really appreciate them in the past couple of two or three years. And like roses orchids are up there. Yeah. But the problem is, they're not always in bloom. So for a great deal of the year, I'm going to have three or four green leaves, but I. I want something that's can you buy a couple of two or three and have them staggered in terms of when they're going to bloom. Absolutely. Is this going to ruin our podcast? We all listen. What we're kind of getting into aren't we? Yes. A five to say, well, that was a good tease. Yeah. I'm glad you said that don't go any further. So we're going to be talking about orchids gonna talk about cycling ferns. Well, you know what? Why not staggering ferns? We're talking about this is what attached to like a wall or something top of a door. They're still one of my, my love. So I just love him. And I don't have any place to even grow them. Now, there's still some over at my mom's house and couple of nephews have some but yet, they're so simple to take care of in the typically grow on trees up in the jungles. And so that's why you always see the mountain fight. Yes. Very good. He's learning after all these mean it just needs a host, just need somebody to hang onto. I noticed a couple of weeks ago tiger and I did alive Facebook broadcast from Mission Hills nursery, and I saw some staghorn ferns. Yeah, I did. Right. I mean. Rounded by sewer. And, and they make good basket subjects to, if you plant to help at a basket case, that's, that's why I knew about him. But you put two or three or four around around basket, and they'll completely become this giant round ball of ferns. And because, you know, what's funny, one of the biggest myths, and I used to I used to sell them every year twice a year at the Carlsbad fair down downtown, which is like I said the little business. Yeah. Okay. So this is like, the, the largest street fair in the country. Now, I think it has been for quite a few years. But I would get asked a thousand times if not once is it true, you feed them bananas. And my no more did that come from. I know in the sixties people were smoking bananas. Yeah. Banana peels. You know, I it's just one of those things that just got skewed I think urban legend. Yeah. The back shield FRANZ collect any detritus. It comes down out of the trees. Okay. So monkey poop old leaves, you know what that's the nutrients that's your fertilizer source, so innocence, anything that falls behind those FRANZ and composts becomes a food source. Well, somebody out in the yard with their Seguin ferns, and they're eating a banana and they go. Well, this is going to go in the compost, anyway. And they pitch it in bind the fronts and true in time it will break down become some kind of a food source, but I was always getting I heard, they'd be potassium is true, feed them bananas, and it's like no, they don't need bananas. They need nitrogen. There are fern, right. Okay. They don't look like a fern, but they are. And so it was constant battle to get people to stop throwing, I would tell them you can throw T bone steak back. There. L. Do just as well. But, you know, funny gonna take a long time, and it's gonna smell. Goan meal. Several several years ago, I really got into carnivorous plants. So John brought me pitcher plant, not, not a what's the. Venus Flytrap is the most common. So I got these pitcher plants. So, you know, you feed a little bugs and this, and that I don't know one day I found a huge insect or whatever. And I felt it and the next day or so thing died. And John said, what you did was a quivalent of giving somebody an entire Turkey enforcing get down there and thirty minutes. Basically, I, I'm thinking, oh, this is going to be good. Yeah. Nice big juicy insects. And it was anything. But for pound tomato were something. Yeah. To this day, those kind of plants fascinate me. Yeah, it was carnivorous plants. They're really interesting. And you know what's really interesting about them to is, especially like the sun do. And the and the Venus fly traps, they bloom very easily. Yeah. And they're really not hard to take care of people usually kill them with wait. We much I my hands raised right here because that's what I was doing. Yeah. Usually just a sunny window and let him sit in some water. They're good to go. So what are they going to be eating though, if they're not if you're not feeding him from the roots, also the substrate, whatever they're in? So they don't really need. No. It's an alternate food source. Okay. Yeah. And but they really nice balloons. Come up with a great flour on them. And some of them the pitcher plants have a really bizarre looking flower. Kind of a flat thing with holes. Now, would you say this is something else that, that's a trend that comes and goes, that's always, always? Always have kids, always there. Yeah. And I guess it would be great gate for kids. Absolutely right. They love them. And like you say they just kill them and then kill him. Yeah. In Carlsbad now at the local theatre they're doing. Same order. Little house, a horrible harse. Okay. Okay. Little shop of horrors. Yeah. Audrey too young play there. It sounds like it's really good. So might be worth going to see interesting. But that's one of those things that always keeps that going, you know, anybody here's better season than the kids want one. I gotta have one, you know, I had one when I was a kid and I did the same thing you did basically and kill it. L bind by stuffing the traps full of stuff. You know, I I don't know what it was. It was a huge fly. It was something, they couldn't get it down. Just big horse fly something. I thought this is going to be great this plants. Get a love. It is big emerald fig fruit Beatles. You know what I still don't like those? I know they're harmless. But you see that big green thing flying around, and you can hear it coming the size of the site of a hunting, birding. I love them. They're like a drunk pilot. Yeah. They don't know where they're going, and they're banging into status. Perfect. Yeah. Just kind of just watching them. And see what they're gonna hit next. The same things we call June bugs. They people regional thing, okay? Jersey or something completely different than what you guys call June bugs. Let me ask you lost target. What are you afraid of in the garden, the garden? You know what this'll be a good question? What bothers you or what is it makes you feel uncomfortable? Or is there any kind of a pest insect that, that you just like really put you over the I don't want to be near it? I don't like when a grasshopper grabs you. I've never been grandpa a grasshopper. It has like it has like Burs. They got little hooks and. Hook hooks on you. Hate that. And you can't get them off shake your hand. You do it, and they'll just stay on there. That's weird. I mean again, it's nothing that I'm like deathly afraid. I'm not gonna run out screaming but I just don't like that feeling the hook on you. Yeah. They're going to bite you. You know, I'm more scared of a bureau, wasp in that I've allergic, I'm not afraid of bees, as long as I know the European bees. Yeah. Because we have a lot of what they checked your passports say, how's that happening? We have a lot of ground cover. What is it? Red apple and his bees everywhere. I walk right there is it working? They're doing their thing. I'm not there. But but I think I don't know what I don't like I don't like bugs that are huge that can fly because when, when they can fly their get an advantage. Unless they're like a drunken pike. And if I can see the facial expression on an insect, that's way too this way, too big, and it can fly out of their mind, snakes, well, I don't mind snakes at all, like, don't always pay mind to surprise you gonna take a break and come back, sixty minutes after the hour, crystal clear video and Facebook.
