Oh man, I never marked my soil bins for 1st & 2nd runs :hmmmm:
I kinda expected I would see some roots in the Second run bin
but don't see any in either bin now.

Looks like I will have to call both those bins 2nd run.

at least I can tell my 3rd run bin I put in the whole root system, stem and all.
and it has not been very long since I filled that one

I also wanted to take a second to talk about Snake Oil..... @Doc Bud ...thanks for makin that stuff. My last grow had a Chemdog in it that was starting to turn ugly mid flower. I ordered the Snake Oil and applied it late. It never really had an effect I could notice at that point. But thanks to all the great info here and some messages to @Duggan I knew these OGKB genetics were gonna want some Snake Oil. I mixed 3ml of Brix with 1ml Snake Oil in a spray bottle with 3 TBS of water. Gave that spray when I flipped and again 10 days later. I’m only about 25 days into flower but I can already tell a difference compared to the last grow. Thanks everyone!

That's a pretty hefty ratio Magoo, have you always used double doses? Brix should be mixed 1ml brix to 1oz water. It looks like your ratio 3ml brix to 1.5oz water. Snake oil should be 1ml SO to 4ml brix. I'm not saying it can't be done, I've just never tried it that strong before.

I meant Oz and not TBS brother. Nice catch. So 3oz of water with 3 ml of brix and 1 ml of SO, which is probably a little heavy on the SO. No I’ll effects noted this time but I will do the 4:1 next time I have to use some. Thank you!

I received 8 clones today, that are healthy, but only problem is that they are in Sohum supersoil in 1 pint cups. Should I grow them till they’re root bound, before transplanting to 1 gl. Pots or transplant them now into gl. Bags of 1st run soil?? Thanks ! :surf:

Hi Doc and gang.

I have a question about my ready soil. I’m almost halfway through the veg stage in 1 gal pots. The soil for the bigger pots (7gals) is cooked/ ready and just sitting in the tote, which I would love to get out of the way.

Can I fill the final pots and have them just sitting in the tent for 4-6weeks until the plants are ready to transplant? I’d put plant trays on top of the soil and just keep the 1 gals on top of that fo the rest of veg.

Is it OK to “store” the cooked soil like this for a month or so?

:Namaste:

I've seen Doc say not to cook up small batches (could swear he was telling you that) so am thinking you may want to leave in totes but let's see what doc and the crew say. Couldn't you just put the tote in the tent with 1s on top?

Thanks ween - yes that’s true. This soil is cooked already though. Been cooking 8 weeks ;)

I can’t move the tote... at all! So putting it in the tent isn’t an option this time (i’m already thinking about that for in the future tho :) )

I’ve seen others do it for short periods. I’m sure I’ve seen Duggs do it when he first fills up his big 26-ers (little pots sit on top for a while) so I know it’s ok for a short time. Just wondering if longer would cause any probs
