Hi Doc Bud,
Nice to meet ya.
Long story short, have had a tough time with soil + synthetics. They never seem to reach thier full potential.
In my search for a better/easier way, i found this sight and a lot of great ideas.
Ended up in the "journals in progress" and read a grow by Icemud, which led to your grow and the High Brix.
Very interesting approach.
So I've gone out and got most of the ingredients needed from your current Brix recipe.
??? Can I substitute this Chickity Doo Doo Organic Fertilizer is Derived from 100% Chicken Manure for the Rock N Chicken or is the N to high???
Or can/should i adjust the amount ?
4x4 mylar walls with 1000 hps water cooled with co2. Night temp 70-73. Day temp 75-82. Humidity 55%
I currently have 5 females on 12/12 with flowers showing up this week. Soil is Pro-mix BX with nothing added.
Right now I'm using the Techno-flora Recipe for success (what a joke) nutes.
Is there anything I can do to help them along with my current list of ingredients?
Ancient forest (internet order on its way)
your 6-5-3 ingredients
Azomite (internet order on its way)
Chickity doo doo
Amaze-Bloomit-PGR (internet order on its way)
Super Course perlite
Technaflora "recipe for success" lineup
General organics "Go Box" nutes
- Crystal Burst
- Snow Storm Ultra
Any help would be great till I can get some soil cooking.
Also is your current soil recipe still to hot for clone coming out of a mist cloner? What should I use for the top half?
Yep, the Chickety Do Do looks like a really nice product. It's composted chicken manure that is higher in calcium than anything else...excellent.
What could you do right now to help? Hmmm. Well, if you're careful to mix your nutes but still aren't doing well, I'd do one of two things:
rip them out and start over
flush them, add Osmocote Plus 2 tbsp per gallon of medium. You can grow some very, very weed with Osmocote Plus.
I also have Terreau d'empotage et suppléments naturels | MYKE "Myke, annual and perennial transplanter, 0.1-0.1-0.5, contains Mycorrhizae, can I use this as a root innoculant?
And I also have a bottle of Hygrozyme I forgot to list.
Organic teas and floliar sprays are like Chinese to me, got any links to recipes that might also help?
Once again many thanks, I'm behind in the game but ill study hard and learn fast.
I'd suggest reading this journal and the one before this. There are links and some pretty good explanations of what and how to do this. You've got most everything you need....except the most important thing, and understanding of what to use and why. While your current grow progresses, you could educate yourself on teas.....simple as buying a kit and mixing brown stuff with water and a thing that blows bubbles.
The foliar sprays are very tricky indeed and I recommend you don't them until you've got a functioning soil.
Just hang out, read up and you'll catch on.
On edit: wow, I just re-read that post....hard to undertand, words missing. Not good. I made a bunch of dry ice bubble hash today, and I'm a fair bit more stoned than usual tonite. A damn fair bit more...
