Re: Evan's Photos of Vetiver

Removing Vetiver during Winter to replace char in the greywater treatment. Some plants where in bottomless pots and they had lower health outcomes than freely planted crown pieces.

Re: Evan's Photos of Vetiver

Digging up and splitting large 5 year old clumps. A lot of effort.

Some progression shots of hydroponically-grown Vetiver.

Approximately 2 weeks of growth, note the new roots dangling down. Also note the snail in the last photo eating algae off of the roots.

Cutting low to create fine mulch for sunflower seeds. Serrated grass sickle for cutting and secateurs for mulching.

Re: Evan's Photos of Vetiver

preference for natives versus superior sterile exotics is a world wide phenomena - strange in a way where agriculture is dominated by exotics!
