Spores and Spore Formers

Spores and Spore Formers

Frontiers Media SA. 2017

Bacterial spore formers have been the focus of intense study for almost half a century centered primarily on Bacillus subtilis. This research has given us a detailed picture of the genetic, physiological and biochemical mechanisms that allow bacteria to survive harsh environmental conditions by forming highly robust spores. Although, many basic aspects of this process are now understood in great detail, bacterial sporulation still continues to be a highly attractive model for studying various cell processes at a molecular level. There are several reasons for such scientific interest. First, some of the complex steps in sporulation are not fully understood and/or only are only described by 'controversial' models. Second, intensive research on unicellular development of a single...

Interplay between NO Signalling, ROS and the Antioxidant System in Plants

Interplay between NO Signalling, ROS and the Antioxidant System in Plants

Frontiers Media SA. 2017

Over the last decades, nitric oxide (NO) has emerged as an essential player in redox signalling. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) also act as signals throughout all stages of plant life. Because they are potentially harmful for cellular integrity, ROS and NO levels must be tightly controlled, especially by the classical antioxidant system and additional redox-active metabolites and proteins. Recent work provided evidence that NO and ROS influence each other’s biosynthesis and removal. Moreover, novel signalling molecules resulting from the chemical reaction between NO, ROS and plant metabolites have been highlighted, including N2O3, ONOO-, NO2, S-nitrosoglutathione and 8-NO2 cGMP. They are involved in diverse plant physiological processes, the best characterized being stomata regulation...

  1. Just got the kit and I’m so excited to start growing my garden where the rabbits can’t ruin it. The kit has everything I need to have a successful garden. I have my seeds in the germination tray and am eager to check on them in a few days. I’ll post an update on the progress!Update! 5/8/15 my sprouts are out and I just added my nutrients to the container!

  2. Ordered this product last week, shipping was super fast. 2 day turnaround. I already had seedlings started before ordering, so I didn’t have to wait to put it in action. This system is so simple, you have to really try to mess up! LOL… my seedling has doubled in size in the last 3 days! My kids are absolutely in love with the Growmanji! Each morning and afternoon, the family has to go and check out the progress of the growmanji! Would recommend this product to all gardeners, regardless of experience levels. Great way to get the whole family involved! I can already think of so many uses! Herbs in the winter indoors, tomatoes outside during the summer! The solar powered air pump keeps the nutrients bubbling around the roots, giving them all they need! Great Product!

  3. Finally!Now that I have done several seasons of running the Growmanji through its paces, here is my full review. The time is from when I purchased it to present.After purchasing a couple of the Growmanji solar pump units and finding they worked well, I decided to try out the entire Growmanji kit. I ordered one last spring. It came quickly and in a well packaged box.This kit pretty much contained everything needed to start a small hydroponic project. Inside the box was the solar unit identical to the bait well pumps I purchased previously, a cleverly designed collapsible bucket, its hanging hooks and jacket, net pot, clay “rocks”, nute bags and PH Down a seed starter set, dwarf tomato seeds and most importantly, some well written instructions. The kit also came with an electric pump, extra airline and T-fittings, items I did not expect but it was very thoughtful of the company to include them. Clearly this kit is meant for 24/7 operation like more conventional bubble buckets. I put mine together this way utilizing both power sources.Assembly was easy except for fitting the insulation jacket which was like putting on a tight pair of pants and took some upper body strength to complete. Compressing the bucket slightly eased it on. My bucket had some velcro patches on the bottom but I am not sure what they are for as the jacket does not extend that far. The hook and ring assembly snapped together tightly and is quite strong, the one weak point would be the carabiner hook for the rope. Too much weight and the carabiner can pull open. I did not have such trouble but did note that once filled the container can be quite heavy. Although the Growmanji can be hung up, it can also rest on a table or bench as the hook connectors serve as “feet”.When I expanded the bucket I was surprised at how small it seemed compared to a 3 or 5 gallon bucket but that is deceptive. The reservoir is very deep for its size and combined with the shallow net cup it can hold a large root mass within a compact space. The net cup itself is just tall enough to hold one of four grow blocks that are included in the kit. The rock-like clay pellets are large and irregular which is just as well as the openings in the net cup are very large and some smaller “rocks” inevitably fall through. Fortunately they float for a time. When they finally sink, they tend to “nest” in the pleats. The container can be a little awkward to clean and change and the nutrient salts leave a stubborn crust on the net pot—a problem I get with other water culture buckets.Seed StartingThe seed starter consists of a black container with a clear lid and four rockwool-like grow blocks. Each block has a hole for seeds. The blocks are dry and need to be wetted before use. In their dry state they shed a sawdust-like powder; when wet they can start to break up so they need to be handled carefully. Once the wetted and seeded blocks are placed in the container and a small amount of water or nutrient solution is added, the lid is snapped shut and the whole thing acts like a tiny greenhouse maintaining a constant humidity. Temperature is crucial; if the container gets too cool, the seeds will rot; if it is too hot, the blocks may dry out. It took some trial and error before I got successful germination. I had better luck with peat sponges.ChemistryAll the nutrients listed on the box were present and in bags with color coded labels. The instructions were quite clear on how to mix these nutrients and warned that I should wear gloves when handling PH Down powder. Even so, I wish the PH stabilizer had been in a vial not a bag. In my kit the bag had started to leak. I took a container that formerly held PH sticks and poured the contents into it, preventing a corrosive mess.ElectronicsThe heart of the system is the air pump and the novelty is that the pump is solar powered. A small 6 volt panel drives what I guess is a motor with a turbine or fan for pushing the air. I base that assumption on the torque I feel when it is running and on change in the pitch of its whine when clouds pass in front of the sun. The panel itself appears to have simple wiring with thin leads that can break if manhandled. This actually happened to one of my panels. Fortunately I was able to repair it by sliding off the cover on the connection box and converting the two screws that held down the contacts into improvised terminals. Not all panels will have screws—one of my other panels is soldered. There appears to be no regulator—It is directly powered. It would be nice to have a battery backup. Hopefully that will be a future upgrade.PerformanceThe Growmanji pot uses an air stone to aerate the solution. The pumice-like globe supplied with the kit is well sized for the reservoir. These air stones tend to disintegrate over several months but spares are easy to come by. Bubbling action was vigorous during the late afternoon when the sun was at its strongest; it stopped whenever clouds blocked the sun and resumed when the clouds lifted. I connected the supplied electric pump so that the aeration would be continuous. Although the electric pump was useful, I discovered during winter growing that once the plant was developed enough and had taken up enough of the solution to leave an air gap, the Gromanji functioned very well as a Kratky system. Thus it can run on solar exclusively during the day and be in Kratky mode at night or when the sun is not shining.ResultsIn terms of growing, I had mixed results. The system seems to be designed around the Red Robin tomato but the seeds were hit and miss with germination. Currently I have a two and a half foot tomato growing in the system with the electric air pump. (Panel is being used on another micro dwc) Cucumbers did poorly but sweet basil took off and reached three feet. During the winter, I tried baby Romane lettuce and it grew a beautiful head in the morning sun. A common drawback with this system and bucket systems in general is that they can accommodate only one good sized plant or at most two small plants so they are best suited to leafy herbs, greens and dwarf cherry tomatoes.ConclusionA five gallon bucket grows larger plants and is easier to drain and clean. One or Two Gromanji bait well units can convert a standard five gallon bubble bucket into a solar powered one—I powered a Waterfarm drip ring that way—and make it a better value than the Gromanji. Nonetheless, the system is a nice and complete compact way to get started in solar powered hydro.
