Hydroponic Gardening – Managing Pests & Diseases

As with soil-based gardens, hydroponic plants require good pest and disease maintenance controls. Failure to do so creates the same results as with 'ordinary' gardens ie spindly or dead plants. Since the majority of hydroponic plants are fruits and vegetables, that means the plants are not worth eating.

However, managing the hydroponic garden is even trickier, since disease and pests have it much easier in this setting. Plants are continuously kept wet, either immersed in water ('true' hydroponics) or continuously sprayed (aeroponics) or in a permanently wet medium such as perlite or sand. Fortunately, as with soil-based gardens, there is an extensive array of available methods to manage the problem.

Using beneficial life forms is one popular way to control unwanted pests, including certain types of bacteria and fungi. These can help to control spider mites and other invaders by crowding them out, eating them or releasing compounds toxic to the pest. They're known as beneficial organizations because they do all that without damaging the plants themselves.

Different types of pesticides are available, too.

Pesticidal soaps have been in use for centuries and still provide effective and non-toxic ways to keep the pests down. One category called botanicals are compounds released by plants themselves that have been combined into an easy-to-use pest control method. Botanicals break down naturally from exposure to air and water and are brilliant because they leave no harmful chemicals behind.

Neem oil can control over 400 different types of pest that typically invade gardens, including hydroponic ones. A simple spray to the leaves can often eliminate common pests. The bugs absorb the oil, which limits their ability to reproduce, leading to a lower population.

For more serious infestations, many commercial pesticides continue to work well.

White flies, aphids, mites and other pests can be a problem in hydroponic settings, just as in soil-based gardens. Powdery mildew is common. In fact, because of the continuous moisture bugs and pests have a 'friendly' environment. Making it 'unfriendly' is straightforward enough, using fungi and organicides. Sulfur-based compounds can help control white flies, mealy bugs, thrips and more.

Pyrethrum continues to be a safe and effective means of control. Although it sounds man made it is actually derived from flowers. This class of natural compounds released by plants are extracted and used in many commercial insecticides. Dosage is low, so the compound is very safe when used correctly (always read the label). Azatrol is a broad spectrum insecticide that provides another easy control method over most common pests.

Hydroponic gardeners have to exercise additional care when using any disease or pest control method, though. Since no soil is present to hold on to the roots, it's easier to damage a plant when manipulating the leaves and stems. That means that if you pick off mites by hand – an effective method for low-number infestations – it's important to exercise extra care.

Since moisture is present, mildew and other fungi are more common in hydroponic gardens. Keeping leaves dry and just the roots wet will help. Any insecticide sprayed on to your plants or vegetable should be allowed to dry under the grow lights. For aeroponically grown plants, for example, that may require a temporary relocation of the indoor garden.

A Holiday in Turkey – Is it the New Spain?

Some four hundred thousand Brits now own holiday homes abroad, Spain has been the most popular of destinations over the past twenty years; it has however become very expensive and more than a little over developed in recent years.

As a consequence many have begun to look elsewhere for their ´place in the sun´. Turkey has seen a huge rise in interest both as a holiday destination and a place to invest in property, people who were astute enough to recognize it as a potential ´hotspot´ as little as eight years ago could have seen their property increase in value by as much as 500% in that time; and whilst Turkey too has seen a decline in demand during 2009, property values have not dropped in the more desirable Mediterranean resorts, (one such resort being Kalkan) to the degree they have in the likes of Spain.

The possibility of Turkey´s acceptance to the European Union has also fuelled speculation in the property market there, whether they will ever achieve acceptance (or indeed actually want to) is yet to be seen. This is the account of how I became one of those ´Brits abroad´: -

I first went to Turkey, rather reluctantly, I might add, on holiday in 2000, and was very pleasantly surprised at how green the country was, I had expected to find a dusty arid country, how wrong I was! I was also very pleasantly surprised at how warm and welcoming the Turkish people were; having holidayed in Greece for some years I had always believed the Greeks would be difficult to beat in their hospitality, the Turks did just that.

My wife and I returned some five years later, having booked a holiday in a very swish hotel on the Dalyan delta, we were disappointed six weeks before being due to depart, to be told by the holiday company that we could not go there as the hotel was having work done and that they, the holiday company, would not allow their guests to have what was not the perfect holiday experience. They told us to choose something else from the brochure and regardless of cost they would honour the price we had paid and even refund us if there was a difference. My wife had seen Kalkan but dismissed it due to the transfer time from the airport feeling that it would be too long, however, given the situation we decided that we would endure the two hour transfer (it turned out to be one and a half). We chose a villa holiday instead of a hotel and hit the jackpot!

Kalkan, we decided very quickly was an idyllic place to holiday and whilst walking down one of the narrow cobbled streets one evening to enjoy a pre-dinner drink stopped to look in an estate agents window (as I´m sure many of you have), before I knew it we were making an appointment with the agent to view some properties the following evening. Meeting that particular agent was yet another amazing stroke of luck, he was a charming intelligent man who´s English was impeccable.

The following evening arrived and I have to say that I personally was not too enthusiastic, as I believed that I was wasting valuable time, I never actually expected to be buying a house. The agent who we learned was called Kemal met us at the appointed time and took us to view the first property, which he had chosen as a possibility. It was an imposing four bedroom detached property with magnificent sea views and a swimming pool; it was newly built and was being marketed at £140,000. It was without doubt a lot of house for the money, however, there was an apartment block right along side it with twelve balconies all of which looked over the swimming pool, a serious privacy issue which immediately ruled that one out.

As we drove away from that villa Kemal asked, “what are you looking for, do you want detached?” I rather facetiously said ´of course´ (remember I had little or no intention of buying) “do you want a swimming pool?” ´ Well obviously!´ He then took us to another newly built in fact not completely finished villa, at what point my attitude changed I cannot actually say, I just knew it was going to happen! This villa again was a four bedroom detached with pool and panoramic views over the bay and astonishingly £15,000 cheaper! We left Kemal that evening feeling like excited school children, a couple of days later and a couple of telephone calls back to the UK to our bank manager and we were signing on the dotted line!

From thereon Kemal did everything we gave him power of attorney (not an easy decision to make with someone you have only just met) and he completed the deal, we became the proud owners of our own piece of paradise seven months later. The piece of paradise is called Villa Katmar, a vaguely Turkish sounding word? No just a combination of parts of our names.

Becoming a property owner in Turkey for us was a very easy and stress free experience, however, a WORD OF WARNING, not everyone we know had such an easy transition into becoming a Turkish villa owner! As in any country it depends very much on the people you deal with and applying a little common sense! I have to say we were very fortunate to have had that almost accidental meeting with Kemal; it could have been a very different tale had we done ´business´ with someone else.

If you are contemplating buying in Turkey then I would urge you to consider Kalkan and if you do then again I would have no hesitation in recommending Kemal Safyurek of Mavi Estates.

Prosperity Investing – Tips For Your Financial Prosperity

Do You Know How to Fund Your Investments?

Welcome readers, and thank you for reading this post, "Private Money Goldmine". I realize that there are thousands of investment manuals and self-help books on the market, and that you could easily create another author's materials, but after reading my little known approach to increasing the return on your retirement investment money, you'll be certain you've made the right choice. What you'll learn in this article is everything that your bank, your investment counselor, your accountant and your attorney either do not want you to know, or do not even know themselves!

You'll find the secrets to investment strategies that only the wealthiest of investors have known for years. Be prepared to have your eyes opened to a world of investment opportunities that you have only dreamed of, but that can be a reality, right here, right now.

How long have you been waiting to grow your retirement savings into an amount that you're confident will keep you in the lifestyle to which you've become accredited for the rest of your natural life?

Or better still, an amount that you'll be happy leaving to your children or grand children to give them the start in life that you may not have had? If you're counting on Social Security to accomplish either of those goals, you're in for a huge disappointment. No, while Social Security may give you enough money to survive at the poverty level upon your retirement (if it's even still in existence when you get there), it will not begin to allow you the financial freedom to enjoy the lifestyle that you deserve .

Yes, your retirement "nest egg" is up to you to accumulate, and depending upon your age, some of us have more or less time than others to grow that retirement fund. That's exactly why I'm writing thisarticle, to educate everyone who's willing to listen, to the fact that your money will never grow fast enough to create a legacy for your family if it's invested in a vehicle that's providing an annual return of 1% – 5%!

No, you need a double-digit return at a minimum, coming to you by way of "passive income", if you want to create multi-generational wealth. But it does not end there. Actually, personal success is just the beginning of what I believe is my path of purpose in life. It's really a blessing to find out what it is that you are passionate about in life, and after searching for many years, I personally have come to the realization that my passion is helping other people accomplish their goals.

I have helped many people become first-time homeowners, helped others attract passive income into their lives, and now I'm ready to be the ultimate philanthropist. I'm ready to give in a way that I never thought I could give before, as well as show others that they can do the same thing.

Everyone is so fascinated by real estate, from the "flip this house" shows on television to the "no money down" investing programs sold on infomercials at 2:00 AM. Those real estate investors are not geniuses. They are average people, just like you and me.

It's just that they took hold of the information that they gathered and actually acted on that information. That's exactly what I'd like to encourage you to do.

Have you ever heard anyone say that he or she is a self-made millionaire? Is it possible to be a self-made millionaire? If you had asked me this question five years ago I may have believed that a person really can create wealth without the help of anyone.

"Self-made" clearly means to me that no one else had anything to do with someone's success. I only have one question to the self-made millionaires in this world. "What about God"? Where does God come into play in our narcissistic ways? Success does not come from a human being alone.

We should never feel that we do not need to acknowledge a higher power. From where I stand in my life at this time, the higher power is Jesus Christ. Without Him, I could not begin to do the things that I envision doing. If you recognize that a higher power is responsible for everything from making the earth to the heavens, you should give glory to the only Being that is really worthy the of the glory.

Everyone has a piece to a dream – something that they're passionate about more than anything else. Nine times out of 10 it's not the job that they're working at right now. Real estate investing is one vehicle that allows you to create massive wealth for your family and to leave a legacy.

Hopefully once you learn my techniques you will become more of a giver and you'll thank God for your blessings and you will believe that there are no such things as self-made millionaires. God-made millionaires are people like you and I who understand that alone, we are nothing.

This is my declaration to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I acknowledge that all of my gifts and talents come from you. Give me the wisdom to teach your people to be givers and conduits of love. You are fortunate to have the awareness of the ministry that was instilled inside of you at birth. That ministry my friends, is a finance Ministry.

Most people do not have a clue about the concept of "passive income". The only thing they know is earned income, and as we all know, earned income is income that is totally dependent upon your personal efforts. I'm sure you know the routine quite well.

You get up every single morning at five o'clock to get the kids off to school, sit in traffic for 30 minutes on your way to a JOB (Just Over Broke) that you do not even like, only to walk into a world where you will be chained to a desk for the next 8 to 10 hours. At this JOB you will, by virtue of your job description, spend every day fulfilling someone else's dream.

You see, the owner of the company has a dream, and understands passive income. You, my friends, are his passive income. If your boss decides to take a vacation this week, his or her company will still operate and his income will not be negatively affected by his absence. Once you understand the concept of passive income, hopefully you will do whatever it takes to discover how to make it work in your life. Getting rich is not hard at all. It just takes "passive income".

Passive income applies to any business and any person. But what I'm going to do today is to show you how to use self directed IRAs (your private money) to create that tax free, passive income and capitalize on what I call the "Private Money Goldmine". I have recently discovered the power of investing in real estate with private money, and because of that knowledge I am creating a real estate empire for my family.

Real estate is the easiest way that I know to create passive income in your life and it does not require a Harvard education. So if you follow my steps and start thinking a little bit differently. Are you familiar with the power of a self directed IRA? It can truly transform your life.

This article is the blueprint for the average person to make fabulous amounts of money, tax free for life. I pray that this article blesses you the same way that is blessed me and that it allows you to triple your rate of return on your future investments.

As Always, Keep God 1st, Invest in People
