comment How to measure the biomass of hydroponic plants in netpot/rockwool DWC system?
Migrating this to Biology since it's about an experimental procedure and not about gardening per se.

comment How do researchers map root systems of plants?
Moving this to Biology because it falls under the "plant biology, beyond what is generally gardening knowledge" section of the help center.

comment Can you spare a Haworthia Cutting?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this is a Q&A site for the free exchange of knowledge, not the exchange of plants. You can try Gardening & Landscaping Chat to see if anyone there can help you.

comment Can anyone identify this maple-type leafed plant?
Please update your question to give us a little more information, like where you are (the US is a big place and something that grows in Florida probably won't grow in Alaska), how big the plant was, any flowers it might have, etc. Thanks!

comment Should I prune the growth at bottom of a Swedish Columnar Aspen
Are you talking about suckers, which typically grow from the roots of the plant, or new growth from the main trunk?

comment Landlady prohibits removal of gravel, is it possible to grow grass on top?
How deep is the gravel layer, and what's underneath it? I ask because it's common to put landscape fabric underneath gravel beds to prevent weeds from growing up through the gravel, or for your grass seeds to send roots down to the soil below.

comment Can electromagnetic fields from high tension wires affect a garden?
Where do you live and what kind of climate do you have? How much sun does your garden get? Have you had your soil tested, and what were the results if so?

comment What is causing brown spots on my Philodendron?
When you edit your post, there's a row of buttons above the editor. Click the one that looks like a tiny landscape picture and it will pop-up a window that allows you to select a photo from your computer, or from a photo sharing site like Flickr, Imgur, etc. Here's some more information on our sister site: Post image from mobile device.

comment What is the name of this purple-flowered climbing plant?
I added this link because searching for "gokarna flower" takes me to the Wikipedia page for Clitorea ternatea. If that's not correct, please update your post with the correct link. Don't forget to add an explanation of why your identification is correct. Thanks!

comment equisetum and soil pH
Did you get a message that this question "doesn't meet the quality standards?". That's an automated check that has more to do with the length of the post (which is easy for a computer to check) than grammar (which isn't). A very short question can indicate that more detail about the problem is needed in order to be able to provide a good, specific, answer

comment equisetum and soil pH
@PatrickB. I understand now. My concern was that "snob" is a slightly derogatory term in English, so it shouldn't be in a post to begin with (except perhaps in a question on a language Q&A site). In future, please edit out off-topic sections like that. The OP can post them in a comment (with suitably toned-down language) if they wish.

comment Why do surface mole tunnels follow directly below the electric fenceline
I migrated this to Biology because it's about the behavior of the moles, not about gardening.

comment Is this a weed?
With identification questions, it's useful to describe where in the world you found the plant, and the conditions where you found it (sun, shade, rocky hillside, forested riverbank, and so on). If you have more information about the plant, please update your question to add it. Thanks

comment What is happening to my chili plants?
You could improve your answer if you explained what makes you think it's spider mites so that future readers might be able to make a diagnosis themselves. Also consider talking about treatment. Thanks!
