these salvia plants have been sitting here for months. Her sisters that went outside grew into big plants, even in the small styrofoam cups. You are better off to use artifical light indoors rather than use sunlight from a window. these plants have full sun almost all day, and never grew more than t

That is totally freaky. It seems like this plant (from the pics you have taken) has a very small root system.

everything about them is small. The branches are tiny, and strechy.   I'ts my opinion that your just wasting your time if you try and grow this plant in a window seal.  Two cfl's will make for a pretty good plant, but window sunlight......................just plain sucks.

Agree, window light sucks. With the window, (pristine clean), you lose at least 10%, i'd say more like 35-45% for having a dirty window. These are just generic figures, I do not own a light meter, but one day I'll definitely test this to get accurate figures. Anything obstructing the light will cause it more so, I've never had any real problems with direct sunlight in a window unless the temps are getting too hot, 25*C+.

Go el-natural if you want great results Cheesy. (year round is near impossible for many though)

farmboy: were your first salvias harcore like they are now or did it take time for them to adapt to your environment. What I mean to say is: How many generations of cuttings before your plants became mutants capable of resisting frost and 100+ temps?

HUM.....................Well, I got my very first salvia plant back in late Aug, of 09(I have a grow log from it)   I took my very first cutting in  Jan. Then in march I took 5 or so. And in april took  5 or so, and in May I took about 15 cuttings.   most of those cuttings all came from mama. But a fer came from topping established plants taaken from mama.  So at the most, its only 3 generations from only 3-5 plants .

IF that makes any since. LOLO
