One aspect of agriculture that I have not heard in discussion is the lunar cycle. Ancient wisdom of planting by the moon. Some say that it is anecdotal and still up for conversation. That is due to the limited understanding of the things we do not see. Just as the tiny creatures that feed our roots, there are Astral movements in the heavens that guide and control the growth cycle of all life. Try this, take a cut or pop a seed the day after the full moon, roughly two weeks (16 days) later follow the exact procedure as before the day after the new moon. Continue the same schedule for both sets (only two weeks apart) til harvest and compare. Then reverse the process. First set at the new moon and following set the full moon and compare.
