Iggys' Puff-n-Stuff

A tough row to hoe…,

Hi
Welcome,

Thanks for stopping by,

Come on in, kick your shoes off and sit a while.
This is my first attempt at living organic soil cultivation and my first grow log. It’s been several years since my last outdoor grow and I have finished one indoor run prior to this, so bare with me.

I’ve raised a few plants, with fairly good results, over the years. I have tried several techniques, hydro and aeroponics, DIY flood and drain in 5gal buckets with hydroton, grown with Coco coir and have made a few batches of homemade soil. Still have my first copy of Mel Franks Marijuana Grower’s Guide.

I’m very interested in learning how to build and revitalize our native soils and Growing great food and medicine in a natural and sustainable way. (KNF, Jadam, Natural farming inputs) I like to share what I’ve learned with others and hope to increase my knowledge along the way.

Looking for a few more moms to diddle and need to make a couple of beans to share with Family and Friends.

I can use all the HELP I can get… !!

This is a new room, so a work in progress.
Added light, room, equip. specs to intro.

@Gpaw Thanks for your help on the lights! I really like the flexibility with these.
I’m going to make a full run under them (veg to flower) and see how it goes…EB 27k 90cri. HLG320s

Them shrooms keep popping up, I’ve been picking them and making spore prints in all my other bags.
Now they are prolific in most of my gardens. I think the spores came in a bag of Canna coir that I mixed in a batch of soil?

Peeked under some skirts and kilts today, will post results pics this evening.
Pictures will be better than the previous ones, I was a little hasty getting this log started.

@Floyd , @Chieftain , @SmackyMcSmackers
Thanks for stopping by fellas, I will try and do these up right.

Taking cuts from all, and moving girls into big bags… another week or so in veg then I’ll cut the lights for flower.

Put up some diamond foil, thought I could get away with just using Two face tape… NOT!!!..I should know better, going back in with 3m hi-strength 90 contact adhesive and hope that will hold?


Think I may do some custom fiberglass trays to fit this space. Still working it out. Room is 51’’ x 59" so it is odd to fit commercial trays into… Ideas?? dog house trays? looking for options.

What about making your own with pond liner and lumber?

Man that is just to easy, duh! Thanks… I have a roll of black out from a light dep project on a previous green house that may work, temporarily. I was using some opaque woven green house material which I thought was watertight, but was getting some water penetration through it onto the tile. Those 25gal bags are to heavy to pack around and I’d like to be able to sled them in and out for clean up and such. Eventually, I’ll build some rolling trays like yours. How are they working so far, and what fabric (source) are you using on your beds?

You have some nice looking line-ups there.

The rolling trays work great. On the rare occasion I have runoff, it is maintained in the tray. The material I used is called eco-fi felt. Its made from recycled water bottles.

OK, re-did the diamond foil with the (3m 90 glue), this stuff works like a charm. That foil will not be falling off now.
I stretched some spots while pulling the foil up from the tape, but it will do. I knew the 2face tape was bogus and that’s what I get for trying to cut corners.

Moved in 2ea. 25 gal bags from the patio. There is a lot of movement on the surface from many diverse little critters scurrying about. I suppose I should try and identify the (whosit’) and figure out… what is their roll in the scheme of things? I’m ready to tuck the girls in tomorrow, 6 each of KAZZAM and Ethiopian Banana, and let them stretch their legs a bit before the flip.

Recipe Shared from (KnF) at CannaCon Oklahoma City day2
I’m Sourcing ingredients for a bloom ferment as follows:
7lbs Mango
5lbs ea. Apple and Carrot (Juiced) save pulp for later…
5lbs Beet (no stalk)
5lbs Zucchini
5lbs Banana
Small Watermelon
Blenderize items using AC Juice to help liquefy to a chunky consistency. Add pulp from Apple and Carrot, 1 to 1 with Brn Sugar into 5gal bucket, ferment 15-30days , Strain off and mix at 5-8ml/gal, use as foliar and soil drench during flower.

Made cuts from all the girls… in the cloner now! Hope for roots on at least 1ea, in a week or so.

Aloe starting bloom: I harvest the lowest leaves that are still fair.

Prepping some Aloe for cuttings soak

Cheating with some Clonex dip, before pluging them into cloner!

Grace and Peace
