Icy stepping stone

Along with turning a year older, I always look forward to my birthday because it (nearly) marks the turning point of the year, when the days begin to grow longer once again. The time of contraction is nearly ended and soon life will expand out in every direction as the sun gives us a little extra light time every day.

Hello guys, I am sorry to say i haven't read your stories for over a year now. New computer, and very busy. I am back into reading garden stories and youtube vidoes about it. Anyway, I wanted to ask you if you heard of air root pruning. The pros are your plants grow much faster and develop a vast root system. If you leave your plant in its container too long, it doesn't get root bound because when it gets to sides of your container, the tips of roots dry up and makes the plant create more roots instead of circling the container.
Its pretty darn neat what i have seen about it on youtube and the internet. I hope everything is going well for you and i plan to catch up on your stories. Have a good year, JOHN
