comment What is the best way to put bonemeal into the soil?
Wow that's a myth busting there... Is "bone meal" the American term for "blood and bone"? If so, I'm deeply confused.

comment What is this disease on my peach leaf?
See this answer to the same question: gardening.stackexchange.com/questions/3092/… It is almost certainly peach leaf curl and is combated when the parasites migrate to or from the leaves in early spring and late autumn.

comment What can I grow in a sealed office environment with no natural light or airflow?
While, it appears that Selaginella lepidophylla is good at surviving in low light, it sounds like it won't come out of its "plant hibernation" state without serious light and some water, making it an unlikely candidate for success in any office because we want to see and enjoy foliage.

Based on the information in the links, only Philodendrons and Aspidistras could happily survive such low light. Certainly, I know from sad experience that peace lillies (spathiphyllum) will go yellow and wither.

comment What can I grow in a sealed office environment with no natural light or airflow?
We are probably allowed to bring in the lamps but it would be the taxpayer paying for the electricity in this case so a bit of an extravagance. Also, a hassle. If some plants can survive without additional light and with perhaps just a biannual excursion outdoors then we'd rather choose those than hassle about with grow lamps.
