My Corner

These pictures belong to my corner, is where I take care of my trees until they are strong enough to go outdoors. Here they are protected from rain, wind and cold. I have protected with a roof of polycarbonate to have light.One side gives to the house and the other is open, both ends are closed one of them only by a clear plastic curtain. The idea of having an open side is to circulate air. I put a gutter to collect rain water which I collect in two containers of 500 liters, later I will put two others. In one ofthese containers I have a pump that draws water to me along with the air pump used to spray water along with a hygrometer that ignites the spray when it is below the desired moisture. What I seek is to have continuous cycles of moisture and dryness. The trees are heated directly above or below the roots through resistors or thermal blankets. With all this I make sure they do not lower the activity of roots and mycorhyza because of the cold, I control the watering, protected from the wind and have a proper humidity. The result has been optimal.
