Btw guys, while on the topic of what I’ve been feeding as of late as well as the new medium mix I’ve been using.
I got a free bottle of “expired” canna rhizotonic from some friends I’ve been making that work at the grow store. It’s just seaweed so I figured the more expired the better. Give only about 25ml per 16gal rez. Only 10ml of mammoth as well as it’s main use is to free up the P in flowering. Ful-Humic powder, small pour. Free samples of this Peak Harvest Humics as well, small pour. I crush up a couple B-multi vitamins with a short 2x4 on a small aluminum cake pan and pour in. Great white, one small scoop. Azos, small pour. Mycos, small pour (usually but can’t find it. Think it’s by my soil mix Rubbermaid). Fulvex, Silica blast, and cal-mag from Botanicare... small pour of each. Age old kelp liquid.. small pour. Earth Juice brand hi-brix molasses, more generous pour. Also still have 2 Bu’s blend tea bags that have been living in the rez and my own tea bag in there. Also usually give a medium pour of insect frass. With that... I usually do this when the rez has 1/4 left and pour all that stuff in then get the hose on high blast and spray that shit in a circular motion to try to make a lil vortex to mix while it fills up. Also use the hose to spray off the good gunk that developed on the top water line before I used it prior as I have gotta believe there is some good shit in that. Sometimes I add the stuff later as I do a tiny pour of h2O2 in there but I think the chlorine content and the aeration from the viviosun is good enough to work whatever chlorine is in there, out. Sometimes I add a lil bit of high Nitrogen bat guano or a small pour (20ml max) of urine if things need a N boost. I lied earlier saying I used powdered urea out of thinking people would have issues with the sanitation but fuck it... my crop anyway and urine is sanitary as I’ve read.
Onto the new medium. Roots organic coco bricks that I throw in a big Rubbermaid and fill with water then once I leave overnight and break em up, I fill more water and just pour it out just in case there is some salt content. Then i fill again with water and pour a 1gal Rubbermaid ice guard pitcher (got 2 packs of 2 off amazon for less than 10 bucks, this is what I submerge into my tea rez and hand water everything with), anyway fill those with a mix of calmag,fulvex, and Silica blast and add that to the coco... sometimes with a bit of age old kelp too. Mix the coco with worm castings, vermiculite, and perlite. To that I add dry Peruvian Seabird Guano pellets, alfalfa meal, kelp meal, neem and karanja(sp?) meal, lrock phosphate, fish bone meal, fish meal, Mexican bat guano, Jamaican bat guano, langdebenite, azomite, mykos, azos, and I’m probably forgetting something, but you get the gist of it. Good organic shit. Most of the dry amendments are from Down to earth but a couple things aren’t. Then I Mix mix mix mix mix, and I usually mix some more...
So yea that’s that... I also usually use rice hulls in place of most the perlite but am currently out. Also just ordered some dry Yucca to help keep things wet as well as some good carbs. And Buildasoil.com is having a Black Friday Sale so I also got some dry Aloe Flakes for the cloner and the rez.
Btw, lastly... last night I planted 18 Star Dawg Guava x Sunshine Daydream by Bodhi. Most had cracked but their tails were minimal. I soaked for 36hours in a mix of kelp, silica, humics/fulvex, and bit of H2O2 then soaked paper towels in that and laid them in a Panda Express plastic lil to go container and threw on the heating mat for a couple days. Like I said I used to get huge tails but I think it’s something about the elevation or something bc my germ rates have been shit and my mistake last few times is leaving em in there for too long then they rot.. so I only left em in there for a few days then last night put em in that coco mix on a tray that fit the 18 small pots perfectly but the dome doesn’t fit all the way, but enough to sit on top of the pots. Maybe it could be I realized I didn’t follow that moon and garden app I showed y’all but anyway, wish those luck bc I have big hopes for that cross and will prob make F2s as well as out cross them and make some interesting F1s with em.
Anywho, blah! If anyone is still reading... thank you for listening to me ramble. But lastly, I really needa figure how I’m gonna water in that jungle lol.
Stay tuned. Will probably be flipping soon despite a bunch of em not showing sex and will transplant when they do bc everything else will just end up getting rootbound if I let em go too much longer.
Have a very happy thanksgiving everybody!
