  • Hello, I see how knowledgeable you are and was wondering if maybe you could help me out with mine. Still currently under veg state since Dec 1st, had a break on the main stem this pst Sunday, taped it back up. Unknown strain, but maybe you could tell me a little about mine and tell me what you think I should do. First time growing, feed the trio fox farm and ocean forest soil also have cal mag. Been feeding with 1/4 the dosage, not even half. Was planning to flower but the break happened. What do you suggest?

    how much do you think actually ran off on your 5 gallon watering? Subtract that from the 15 gallons and finish the job the right way.

    Hi Emilya
    My name is Francois and I am from south africa. Would you please consider reviewing my last posts? I have been hacing some issues on my soil green house grow, with my LAOG and blueberry plants
    The are all showing some symptoms that I have never experienced before and it is seriously bugging me! Please please have a look at the photos?

    Have a great day

    See what ColonelBlake said? Me too!
    I've been sneaking peeks at your advice for a while now, you and the legendary Mr. Treez. I've skimmed through the MC threads, at first being daunted by the calculations and various counter-intuitive advice being dolled out. I have, however, ordered my trial bag and after paying particular attention to your grows and your battle will give it ago.
    What I am looking for now are soil recipes. Just wondering if you have a favourite go to soil mix and if so would you mind sharing.
    Thanks for all you're doing
    Your New Apprentice ;)

    my favorite is subcool's supersoil... his original recipe makes a ton, but if you look around there are 1/4 and even 1/8 versions.

    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.

    Hi @Oldgrower54 and nice to meet you neighbor! I do have a thread that I have created that has a reference to all of my favorite work, but of course it is easy to search for anything originated by any member using the search system. Check out this link and I hope you get a lot of information from my work over the years.

    Good Morning Emmie: After writing you I got off my bum and basically followed your instructions. I'm Dyslexic. Just wrote a post in members lounge. I loved your proper watering tutorial, it was easy to understand. Reminded me of my high school AG/FFA teacher, Mr Fluet was mentored by Booker T Washington.... his favorite mantra, "make them roots chase the water"
    Don't know if your familiar with Bakercreek Heirloom seeds or the village in Mansville, they have some nice festivals, and now that Medical Marijauna is here in Mo I imagine come Spring there may be some vendors. Happy Trails

    you have to create a gallery picture to be able to post it in this section, i believe... it is much easier to do on your own thread. Do you have a compulsion against posting a thread on this forum? I assure you as a less than legal grower for over 10 years posting on this site, that it is safe.

    first go with autos? what's your goal? i suspect you'll b bummed about losing genetics. i was. clones plodded on, with the mothers, zackly as you'll read. it was wasteful. for turnaround- clones go faster. i thought to fem out a branch, much in the style u operate, but while i can let a boy play with himself, outside, alone... i don't want the aggravation of a soil commitment and don't want to plug in, under the sun, either so that was out, too.
    i also felt a lack of control- couldn't stress em to make em delay n grow taller. while supercropping, to avoid a light, just pissed em off (buds beyond the bend/knot, would b smaller).
    i watched some YouTube grows and people seem to either love, or b done with em. definitely in demand.
    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!!

    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
    Emilya
    Emilya
    evaporation only accounts for about 2% of the water usage in a closed container, a bit more in a smart container... but the majority of the water that leaves the container (a huge amount actually) is taken up by the plant.

    i don't do soil, anymore, but anyone else thinking they might aerate the soil with hydroton, coco, or perlite? that's an awful long time to b wet. fungus gnats, yet? mildew? mould? doesn't take long.
    i don't know the name of the product, but it looks like a layer of hydroton, on top of the soil (probably isn't hydroton) and it's supposed to prevent gnats.
    Hey Emilya! Happy Friday from the land of Aus! :slide:
    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? :D 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!

    Hi Slammy! Most good designer soils are going to have a little bit of magnesium in them... my subcool supersoil has some epsom salt in the mix. Also, most tap water has some in it, so there are times when you can find plants that don't need extra. We have just found that when using filtered water, and under LED light, the need for magnesium supplements seems to go up. The bio boost has to help... and this is a good way to make sure the microlife is thriving. I am using Realgrower's Recharge, and with that, I don't even need to do compost teas.

    Awesome, thanks!! I'll try some of the boost and see how they like it :). And i hadn't thought about my water and some of the minerals in it, (duh!) I use tap water that's been aired for a couple days, which seems to be enough to offgas the small amount of chlorine added to our local supply (luckily not chloramine! Although i think I've heard powdered vitamin C can be good for that?). I really can't wait to see how they turn out, my girl scout cookie is starting to look so sparkly! :yummy: i have been keeping a physical grow journal, but i need to start keeping them going here, maybe then I'll get in the habit of writing more consistently! Thanks again for your reply, and i hope you have a glorious weekend! :)

    right back at ya! and yes, a vitamin c tab can dechlorinate a bathtub sized vat of water... drops it right out.
    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.
    Peace&Love

    Welcome to the forum @CannonTheHooper! I would be happy to look in at your journal and will link to it after writing this note. At 25 days you should be near the 4 week point on the FF feeding schedule, and I would keep on that week until you see flowering start, and then move to week 5. Since these suggested nute levels are for plants of that age, I would feel comfortable following the recommendations at full strength, but no harm will be done by going 1/2 strength the first time. Remember to feed/water/feed/water all the way through the grow, and since you just watered, I would wait till the soil dries all the way to the bottom (have you read my watering tutorial?) and then I would water with the nutes the next time.

    I have read your watering tutorial and have been following it. The only trouble was I read it after I started the grow. I started directly in 5gal pots, because so much bad advise told me how awful of an idea it was to up pot autos.

    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.:(:)

    Hi... yep, that is why I hate that advice to start in large containers... it makes it so hard to water properly! The solution is to remember that there are actually 2 sets of roots on our weed, the top spreader roots and the bottom feeder roots. You can save yourself from this potting problem (lets say mistake and get everyone going) by partially watering, with about 1/3 what you would normally use, to just soak in to the first 3 inches or so. This lets the top spreader roots, that were designed to scoop up a quick rain's water before deep rooting cash crops could get it, grab all that water, keep the plant's metabolism high, and even get some nutes in there. Your goal is to give just enough for this to happen, but not enough that gravity will drop it to the bottom and add to the water table that you are trying hard to get used up. I would do this about every 3 days, until the bottom finally dries out and you can properly water the entire container. Hopefully before bloom gets underway, you can get these processes to sync up and be able to properly water each time.
