    Amazing to see Zonker show any business sense at all, but here it is

    This is getting creepy. Only two days ago Q4horse said “Zonker had better start sweet-talking his plants”. Is everybody else here really a GT sockpuppet? Wasn’t I supposed to get a choice between the blue pill and the red pill…?

    This is simply picking up on a thread from years ago when Zonker would talk to his plants. And they would shudder every time Mike had to watch over them.

    See, I told you he would have to start sweet talking with his plants.

    Ironic that Zonker is asking others to grow up and become productive fast.

    I remember hearing about plant talking when I was in H.S. in the 80s. It is supposed to have a positive effect on house plants. Someone even did an experiment for the science fair that showed plants that were talked to and some, in a similar situation, that were not, and a positive influence (they were bigger and healthier looking) was shown. I have no idea if it was the words, though, or the hot air…

    Apparently, there are back orders all over Denver this morning. If you could smoke back orders, Denver would be over a mile high.

    I heard the price doubled during the first day. And who said growers aren’t good little capitalists?In all likelihood, after the novelty wears off, demand will drop back to normal.

    People who talk to their plants are more likely to take better care of them, making sure they get the right water, soil, light, temperature, etc. The conditions under a plant whisperer are best for plant growth.

    Back in his ‘competetive tanning’ days, Zonker used to get advice from his plants on how to deploy yourself for optimum sunlight reception . . .

    Thanks for the references, Baslim. Yep, I remember Zonk’s talking their little ears off.

    Gee, using flower pots he will be pit out of business in 2-3 weeks, considering most grow-ops now use acres and acres of fields, thousands of gallons of water, and fertilizer like you wouldn’t believe. Might as well try growing 2 cacao plants.
