Hello from the Ozarks..You hit the nail on the head about "tomato" farmers...me included. I'm semi-green to indoor,but woefully unsuccessful. I've read a couple of your expose's,and was wondering if theres a compilation of your how to's? I'd like to put together a reference, save me asking about already covered subjects. I've read similar authors on different sites, but your the most informative,and an easier read.
Hey Em! Hope this weekend finds you warm and well! I'm happily plugging along on my first grow, and am getting pretty close to the end! Just was wondering if i could pick your brilliant brain for a second!
My White Widow looks to have this darkening around the edges of a lot of leaves, including sugar leaves... does this sound like natural colour change as she nears harvest time, or is something else at play? Doesn't look like any of the common deficiency symptoms I've been studying, but I'm just no expert on these beautiful plants! I have some detailed pics here, in my current journal. If you get a chance to pop by, any input is highly regarded, thanks!!
If I could get a minute or two of your time please and thank you
When I'm watering my plant if it's taking 10 or more days to dry up completely should I be giving extra nutrients or water just regularly also I'm using foxfarm grow big and I have big bloom aswell but I havent used it yet
Hey Emilya! Happy Friday from the land of Aus!
I had a question about my ROLS grow, because you have been an invaluable help already in the past! I am about 3 weeks into flower now, and super stoked with the way plants are looking. I kind of have two questions though;
1. I'm slightly confused because i haven't really had to add magnesium to my ladies, since correcting my dolomite lime errors much earlier on in veg... i thought mg was one that I should've expected to be helping with, even with ROLS, as preloading soil with it should lock out other nutrients? Or are there still some dry amendments that the microbes do break down to make bioavailable Mg without necessarily having too much available at any given time and locking out others?
2. I haven't been using my Canna bio nutes as I am trying to stay true organic and feed the soil, not the plant. I do have some Canna Bio Boost already though, do you think its worth using it just cuz I've got it, or does that hint of blasphemy in an otherwise untainted ROLS grow? sorry for long-winded message, but you are so incredibly knowledgeable in so many styles of gardening, especially true organics!! any help is so very much appreciated!
Hello Emilya. I'm currently growing autos in 50/50 ffof ffhf. I'm using both of the fox farms trios. I haven't used any nutrients to this point. The girls are starting to show some deficiency. I wish I would of started the fox farms regiment from the beginning of the grow. Live and learn. My question is, should I start full strength? I'm 25 days from seed. Also I just did a top water, do I need to wait to feed since the soil is moist? I started a grow journal, if you would like to see pictures and mentor a newbie. Thank you.
Good morning Emilya, My first time grow. I started my two auto girls in 5 gallon pots after reading so much DO NOT TRANSPLANT AUTOS boy i was wrong. My question is how to properly water going forward. I have only watered twice since planting. The top of the Smart pot is slowly drying but the mid to bottom remains moist to wet. Do I leave them to fully dry or little circling around the perimeter. Thank you for any assistance.
I wanted to thank you emilya for the warmest welcome and the help. I did t know how to msg you directly so i did it on here. I got some new toys and am probably going to be freaking out a out something soon.lol you are awesome
Hey, how are you, sorry to disturb you but i was looking forward to send some photos of my work and you could give me some advice as i think i am doing many things wrong with growing my plants, overwatering i guess after reading your thread. Looking forward for a reply. Regards Loku
Hi Emilya! I’ve just recently started reading your posts and they have been so helpful especially with watering, I had a few questions, about top dress for my outdoor and what your opinion is. I know your posts mostly talk about indoor growing.. but I recently started my outdoor grow for the summer, I had very little time to plan but i have two 800 gal pots, and four 400 gal. I used a organic soil blend of Peatmoss, Aged and composted Steer Manure, Coco fiber, Perlite and pumice, Aged and composted Chicken Manure, Worm Castings, oyster shell flour, Calphos Rock Phosphate, 9-3-7 Fertilizer and Kelp Meal. I just started following your watering protocol because I started noticing the plants drooping from over watering. I haven’t been building a living soil because it’s my first year growing at this property I’m at .. so my question is I was going to do a weekly soil drench feed of azos, mikos, calmag, em-1, water Soluble kelp and liquid fish. And then later in the week do a top dress of bio-live from down to earth, humus, compost and earth worm castings.. I’m wondering what your opinion is on that and what’s a better option if there is one, I didn’t want to brew tea this year.. they make it local so I was thinking of maybe getting some once or twice .. but I’d like to just top dress or is that a waste of time and I should of just added it all before I planted? I always keep it organic but I’ve had people recommend doing nutes in conjunction which sounds silly to me and wanted to know your opinion on that. Thank you so much for your time!
Emilya, I just received my Earth Dust from Green Sunshine and some microbes from URB. Would these goodies mixed with some nice soil and filtered tap water equate to a nice organic grow? Any soil recommendations or suggestions in general would be greatly appreciated. Cheers!
Emilya, I don't know how to thank you, it took me 3+ days thinking of the right words to describe how grateful I am to you, but I couldn't find anything other than THANK YOU. Thank you for truly caring to help. Thank you for sharing your knowledge , Thank you for the fast attention you give for who'sin need. For New growers 1 small problem is a big Emergency , I wish there is a way to Show you my gratitude.
