Thanks for the kind words, @LemonadeJoe, @sk1, @oranje, @ReikoX @99PerCent!
It is amazing how far you can go with a brew of kelp, neem, oyster shell, crab shell, rock dusts and gypsum, and bringing mychorrizae to help. Fish hydrolisate stinks, but the plants seems so appreciate it. Most waterings are just tap water.
So I´ll try to keep some sort of log of what happens on my little grow circus. Below some of the current guests, all very appreciated, but I´m very much looking forward to see what comes out of my Space Monkey oddity (Gorilla Glue 4 leaf twist taken to the extreme, doesn´t even look like a cannabis plant).
The ACE Ethiopian has crawled all along, to the point sometimes I just thought about why it didn´t die already. But she seems to be boucing back (a runt probably? or that and she is not too happy with the medium, although it is not heavy or hot). Al least this morning she surprised me with some clear female preflowers.
Zamaldelica is going at full speed! Lots of vigour in this one, although there should be one or two more in the tent.
The topped dream beaver in the center (already sexed) seems much promising and its growing with a beautiful structure (four main branches with lots of nodes). The Sunshine Daydreams on top do not dissapoint (although I did, by snapping a branch in one of them, let´s hope it recovers but I haven´t applied anything to it, other that to put a sort of "cast" of garden staples.
On top left, some suspected males, who are waiting in line to meet my new Chikamasa garden scissors (highly reccommended).
I am not a big fan or perlite, so I´m trying to experiment with other materials for drainage and keeping the soil from compacting. In this next run I´m using mixes with rice hulls, RH & perlitle, RH & and coarser pumice. Further down the road would like to experiment with substitutes for peat, without changing the overall approach, as here it is expensive and not a sustainable input.
This tent also uses PCB LEDs, a mixture of 5000k and 3000k Samsung 561C diodes that run at about 1A.
