Why did he grow them in a window screen?

You will laugh when Snöfrid speaks.

Come with me on my quest for waste free radishes.

A vendor provided me with a free sample hose with the understanding that it would appear in a video. Details on the hose are available at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01L7PZDDA

The light cycle was 14 hours on 10 hours off unless I felt like having the “sun” shine in my office while I worked.

Plants were grown in an office environment under a 4 bulb 4ft High Output T5 fluorescent fixture 216 Watts.

All the grows required top offs of fresh water. PH and EC were not checked. Fertilizer was only added once (right after thinning plants).

Nutrient Recipe
2g MasterBlend Tomato 4-18-38
2g Calcium Nitrate 15.5-0-0
1g Epsom Salt
1 Gallon or 3.8 Liters tap water

    Coco coir maybe?

  2. JON DAVID on May 10, 2021 at 1:07 am

    Jeb invent your own screen with biodegradable edible material

  3. Chef Alex on May 10, 2021 at 1:07 am

    Hey Jeb, out of curiosity why do you use powdered not liquid nutes?

  4. Om Jaman Now on May 10, 2021 at 1:08 am

    8:11 how does the leaf taste?

  5. Doc Atheist on May 10, 2021 at 1:09 am

    Judicious, non-overlapping snips in the screen will permit stretch — much like skin grafts were stretched to fit over areas otherwise too large to cover, back before there were special (power) tools invented for use in the operating room. The technique is still useful in medicine, today, when a circumferential bandage is placed over a wound before the region so wrapped has time to fully swell. Judicious snips…

    I love you Jeb, but put an air bubbler on that. It gets rid of anaerobic scum and prevents algae. Yay for air bubblers!

    You’re hilarious but at the same time odd which is just amazing. Love the content man

    Your a genius need friends like you add me on th cesar aquino

  11. Alexandre Faria on May 10, 2021 at 1:21 am

    What if you use an elastic mesh or silicone so it doesn’t constrict as much? Just a thought.. 🖖🏼

  12. Manuel Ross on May 10, 2021 at 1:23 am

    I just saw your video. The stretching of the window screen is very annoying. I came up with an idea for you (not testest). As only the roots need to be in the water, you could maybe design something like a hanging rack. You tie a cord to the head of the radish (just where the leaves starting, maybe a rubber band for a bit more flexibility during growth and more grip) and hang it on a rack so just the roots are in the water. In that case, the "fruit" could grow without the effort to push through a material.

  13. Corinne Muir on May 10, 2021 at 1:23 am

    Those radishes are store bought!  Warms my heart seeing nice young man being inordinate. you’re Jeb. On face value, I have to hand it to you, every minute you have great timing

  14. Blame USA on May 10, 2021 at 1:24 am

    they are uglier than old mans balls

  15. Marktuyet on May 10, 2021 at 1:25 am

    This is why God made dirt . I forget what day .

  16. 333nile on May 10, 2021 at 1:25 am

    I did not expect that Swedish https://youtu.be/-VFwKDZQxAg?t=392 she talks about "better is the hero’s noble poverty/misery, than the dragon’s concealed desire for gold" what is this and how did you find it.. I muted it*

  17. janice baker on May 10, 2021 at 1:26 am

    What if you pruned the leaves would it encourage more root growth?

  18. Fortune Hurdler on May 10, 2021 at 1:28 am

    Burlap?

  19. Cory Broomfield on May 10, 2021 at 1:30 am

    Should try going upside down ..

  20. Linda S. on May 10, 2021 at 1:30 am

    Have you tried using "tulle" fabric? (It’s used to make tutu’s, and maybe bridal veils.) It would have more give than window screen.

  21. Shishka Baby on May 10, 2021 at 1:33 am

    You are incredible thank you 🙏🏻

  22. Kim Kirby on May 10, 2021 at 1:35 am

    I guess they radish stems are edible

  23. Stix Glass on May 10, 2021 at 1:35 am

    … cause I’m dumb as fuck and like to spread misinformation on the internet. Har har har…

  24. Stix Glass on May 10, 2021 at 1:36 am

    Are they ready for market? No, cause you are a joke of a horticulturist! You have taught me what not to do when it comes to growing anything!!!

  25. Sanne Cordus on May 10, 2021 at 1:40 am

    oh my god you are genius

  26. YOW Gyrl on May 10, 2021 at 1:42 am

    You are funny, loved this vid.

  27. Cedric Neys on May 10, 2021 at 1:45 am

    Try cut pool noodles

  28. Loren Kinzel on May 10, 2021 at 1:47 am

    Burlap. Much better stretch. It will eventually rot, but not as soon as one might think. Available at fabric stores.

  29. Styromaniac on May 10, 2021 at 1:47 am

    Use a layer of burlap.

  30. Shishka Baby on May 10, 2021 at 1:48 am

    Music is lovely 😊 thanks for telling us what she meant it’s lovely 😊

  31. Vronik GC on May 10, 2021 at 1:48 am

    Hahahah! I Love your videos!

  32. François Bellemare on May 10, 2021 at 1:51 am

    Did you try with rockwool?

  33. Eva Esplana on May 10, 2021 at 1:51 am

  34. Rebecca Allsteadt on May 10, 2021 at 1:51 am

    U are such a smart guy in a really creepy way. Kinda like being a master gardener combined with a silence of the lamb movie lol

  35. francischanyh on May 10, 2021 at 1:52 am

    enjoyed watching and listening to this interesting combination of music and plant experiment. yes I laughed..good job

  36. FADED PRODIGY on May 10, 2021 at 1:52 am

    Jeb, I love your videos and I love you as a fan! You make me laugh and have inspired me to start growing vegetables in my room. I love it! Thank you kind soul.

  37. Q-Ba on May 10, 2021 at 1:52 am

    I use saran wrap with holes poked in them to solve that issue. Although I think it only works on smaller plants cuz the weight would droop the plastic. I never used net cups or rock wool before

  38. janice baker on May 10, 2021 at 1:53 am

    Great tips!

  39. Chris Kwajisan on May 10, 2021 at 1:54 am

    You should grow them in space, imagine hydroponics in space… floating blobs of liquid with a radish growing out of it.

  40. Hannah Tjoa on May 10, 2021 at 1:55 am

    JEBBBBBBB!!! Love your channel!

  41. SmellsLikeGrapes on May 10, 2021 at 1:55 am

    Cheese cloth?

  42. absurd nerd on May 10, 2021 at 1:56 am

    Try growing in submerged pots filled with calcined clay (turface, etc)

  43. Mααrʈεn M on May 10, 2021 at 1:58 am

    Hahaha, didn’t expect the laugh after he ate the radish leaves

  44. D.R. LITTLEJOHN on May 10, 2021 at 1:58 am

    Yo, can anyone tell me what the screens are made of and is it safe? Id like to grow microgreens with it. Thanks!

  45. RV-PowerWall on May 10, 2021 at 2:00 am

  46. facite non victimarum on May 10, 2021 at 2:00 am

    Day 395:
    –"Mom could I have a radish?"
    –"Sure dear, I just got back from Safeway. Here, give some to Grandpa Jeb, too."
    –"He gulped ’em down Mom, now he’s throwing away all his hydrophony stuff. And cussing."
    –"Aww nuts, now he’ll be hanging out the house again. Oh well, maybe he can take out the garage."

  47. Flo Sito on May 10, 2021 at 2:00 am

    Try coffee filters with small holes

  48. Angler Andy on May 10, 2021 at 2:04 am
