Since I planted so many outside this year, I lost a lot of my soil. I had to wait till this last run came down to have soil for another run, lol! Today I spent some time cleaning the soil mix, and letting it sit in the sun to dry out. This is what came out of the 4 Octo’s from my last run.
Had some help working with the soil…
The black things on the chair are the sleeves (6 gallons) that hold the dirt and fit into the Octo’s.
My soil mix is simple and have used it for years. 4 part easy: 1/4 Root Organic original, 1/4 Sunshine #4, 1/4 worm castings, 1/4 perlite. I then add in another 15 percent or so of perlite, to keep soil very loose and for it to wick well.
Veg food provided by Urban Farms Texas Vegetable Fertilizer, the only veg food i will ever use, it flat works and sets the plant up for a successful flower run, no matter what decent flower nutes are used. Rate is 1 teaspoon per gallon every fill up. The gallon bottle will make a 1000 or more gallons, and lasts me 2 -3 years of runs, cost is like $35.00
Received Gorilla Glue 4 Josey Wales cut’s from another member here. Not sure if he wants to be known , so unless HE responds here that it is ok to post that, I shall not say more on them other than they are the real deal, no doubt, leaf twist n all.
Was gifted 5 cuts, all 5 have taken, but took 15 days for all to root, had heard GG4JW roots easily, did not here.
Hey @OleReynard…they actually came to me CLEAN!!! Imagine that, no bugs, no PM, nothing out of order, THANK YOU FOR THAT GIFTER!!!
They are the 5 to the left in Dixies. 1 will go into an Octopot for this run, 1 will become Mom, 3 will be used to cross to @50State’s Orange Goji via pollen I collected from an exceptional male I grew out. Orange Glue . I see today they re starting to pray, so will not be long till they get Octo’d !
I take cuts, root them, then place in Dixie Cups. Give them a week or so in the Dixie’s, till I see them pray and they start to go vertical. These are 4-6 days away from that point. The GG4’s went first, the other cuts to the right of them are 4 or 5 days behind the Glue’s.
Need to figure out who else is going in the run. 4 Octopots under my Gavita 70 DE HPS covering 15 square feet of floor grow space. I know OHGA(Amnesia Haze X Orange Goji) is going in, 1 GG4 is going in, leaves me 2 open pots.
Did not take a cut of Silver Fields, believe she is done in my gardens, but have cuts of Razor(OG MOM) , Orange Goji #2, and Amnesia Haze. Toss up between Razor and Pheno 2 of OG…will take which ever cut looks better at the time they go to get placed. Amnesia Haze may sit one round out, not sure just yet.
Going to try another Flower food this run , going to run Jack’s. Thinking of 2of their products, the 5/12/26 and the10/30/20. With these 2 I can achieve ratios of : 1/3/2 for early flower (straight up 10/30/20) 1/3/3 for mid flower (50% of each mix makes this) and for late flower and bulk up 1/2/5…straight up 5/12/26 product.
With these 3 ratio’s Im pretty much set.
Does anyone know if both of these from Jack’s are"complete" products??? Thinking they are and can call them if no one here knows.
Will take a few days for the dirt to dry out , the Octo’s and sleeves are already cleaned and waiting on the soil and the plants. Seems my timing will be spot on, gotta love it when a plan works out right, lol !!
