    Compost went anaerobic: question

    Organic Cannabis Growers Solve The Problem Of Poisonous Pot With Compost

    Marijuana consumers have long proselytized for their drug of choice with the notion that it's nature's herb. Weed is of the Earth; it grows naturally, and so is relatively clean compared to synthetic concoctions like cocaine, say. That's true-ish. Marijuana is illegal on a federal level in...

    Big Difference Without My Fish Compost & Other Ramblings With Flytier

    I never thought that the salmon compost we make at work would have as much influence on soil quality as it does. I was wrong. We add the peat moss and dead fish, and the flies, beetles and microbes et al do everything else. I ran out of fish compost a few weeks ago, but I still had bags of...

    How's This For A Soil Mix?

    Hey everybody. I'm a very new grower and I've massacred a number of seedlings by using nutrient-enriched potting soil before finding out what was wrong. I'm in the process of making up my own organic mix now and I'd like to get some opinions on it before I potentially fuck up more expensive...
