Thanks for all the love guys..constructive criticism always welcome too.Gonna do a few ladies outside too got it just about figured out..won't be really any updates on that grow just bc I don't wanna show how I am doing things outdoor..you know.
Got another 5 weeks or so on this..oh and I wanted to show the leaf burn. That is from topdressing too much I think. Solution- I removed all amendments from the room so I think twice before I go dumping stuff on.
Thanks stow, means alot. I couldn't tell you who it is from, I wish I knew. I do know it is capable of 8oz + plants. I'm guessing about 3 on this one but it is early.
ORGANICS! yes still following RRog's (clacks, gascans) instructions. not ONE pest I kid you not. nematodes, bti dunks, spinosad, neem oil, all still used as preventative though. Just water, molasses every other watering. And a coconut water tea once in veg and flower. Not everything is perfect on every plant, but I think it is just the learning curve. They look better than last time.
TASTE---I know I was skeptical about it before. But I have sampled 3 diff buds being that I am between harvests. None organic. None as delicious as what we have been growing. No wierd tasting hits. Didn't appreciate it until now.
I hear ya on the taste. I've only got one organic run (not the no-till method) under my belt, but I was blown away by the difference in taste and how smooth the smoke was. I wouldn't have believed it until I did a side by side with cuts from the same mama.
I spent the day sourcing some stuff yesterday. Kelp meal, alfalfa meal, neem cake, rock dust, etc. WTF!?!? I didn't realize how hard some of this shit is to track down! Built my worm bin yesterday too. I've got some egg shells set aside, and some food rotting as I type. Gonna take a drive out to Ann Arbor this weekend to pick up some worms. I'm stoked!
I'll be following along with this thread. I'm sure I'll have some questions to bounce off of you....
Cool dude! I am not far ahead of you really. I didn't find rock dust or neem cake this go. Or crab shell meal so I been using dry shrimp tails. In this batch I think I used...
1 bag roots
1 bag store bought vermicompost
1 bag coco(had some perlite and goodies in it too)
1 bale promix
1 cup bone meal
1 cup fish meal
1/2 cup kelp meal
1/2 cup alfalfa meal
1/2 cup soft rock phosphate
Maybe 10 cups biochar(don't forget to activate or it will have an opposite effect of what it's supposed to)
1 shovel dirt from yard(scary I know!)
Bti dunks/neem oil/ molasses/ lacto B solution
diatomaceous earth sprinkled on top of the bins
I have been adding worms to my pots as I find them in the yard. No bin yet I'm such a slacker.lol
The dr. earth brand seems pretty cool, supposed to be inoculated with all sorts of beneficial bacteria.
