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.
Hii all,, Thanks to all in advance for your help.. I've 4 babies, 2 critical 2 white widow, born btw April 4-8. FFOF soil mixed with %30 perlite, %10 worm castings, been transplanted once to 3gal pots on May 29th, 4 nutrients spikes in each containing 2 parts blood meal 1 part bone meal 1 part...
Hi Emilya, I was wondering if you know.... Does a person have to have a certain number of posts before they can post a Grow Journal ? I keep trying to start one but it says I have "insufficient privileges to post Here". Was going to be my 1st one ever...LOL.
If I get to do it I'll tag you in it .... May need some of your advice along the way.
are you the Mars Lighting rep? looking to upgrade my lights and I'm just getting starting research. i bought 3 cheap light from amazon and really don't know much about led lights. i have a 4x8x8 tent to flower in and a 4x4x8 tent for babies. i figured i needed 2 lights for the flower tent and 1 for the babies. i don't have a lot of $$$ but i'm not a miser either. i would like a middle of the road light that's not the cheapest or not the most expensive. being im getting a lot of help from this page id like to support the sponsors. and if i can buy local from grow shops here in oklahoma, thats cool too. thanks for any suggestions.
Hi Emilya, it's a pleasure to have you existing ! No really I've been simply impressed by your knowledge, your way of writing and explaining things makes it easy to learn and how welcoming to share your knowledge and mistakes, it's pretty amazing.
I'm very new in growing and basically nothing survived under my hands but few cactuses lol, still I never stop trying. Growing needs discipline and that's what I'm learning from these plants, I love them so much that I have to say I tried my best .
I can't stop reading your journals nor your share in solving other growers problems, its allot of knowledge that you simplify it, you put it in a way that makes it make sense. If that makes sense . I have a lot to learn and a lot to catch up on.
All I can say is wow!! I just found this forum and you. I feel like life just became easier. I have a couple questions if you don't mind. I'm about to start my first soil grow. Autoflowers. I have already mixed 2 cu ft of ffhf and 1.5 cu ft of ffof. I was wondering what amendments to add to take my grow start to finish. I also seen your post about watering, and was wondering what size pots to start in, and how many times to transplant, to what size pots? Thank you for your wisdom.
Hi Emilya, I've recently been reading through all your info which is fantastic by the way. It was like a bulb flicked on in my head when reading your stuff. I believe I've been watering too often and drowning my lower roots. I'm in the stage of trying to rectify this by letting them completely dry out. The thing is they've not had anything now for 4 day and don't think they will have dried out by tomorrow either. Do you suggest pouring 2 cups like I've seen somewhere in one of your replies evenly over the top or just preserving with nothing till they are completely bone dry. I'm 5 weeks in with stunted growth and yellow droopy leaves in 15 litre pots? Any advice would be great and I really appreciate all the info you give out. Thanks again
hello, Just wanted to give you a update, after I transplanted my plants they still are showing some signs of burning. It has just started looking burned on the next set of leaves. The new growth still looks healthy and good. I just transplanted them late friday evening so it's only been about 3.5 days. what do you think? Thanks
