Here's to all of us who pass each other and never really spend time on each other's awesome grows...just didn't know a better way to hit all of you at the same time. I see you though and your beautiful grows just so you know...

Happy Thanksgiving!

Some of The Lorax for you all, hope you are enjoying your holiday....

(Happy Thanksgiving)
I more interested in that Hersheys Porter! Had a pretty good blonde stout that tasted like milk chocolate. Santa Monica Brewery called PCH (Pale Chocolate Heaven)
Mahalo!!!

It is YuengLing...sold on the east coast here...it is a seasonal brew only comes out once a year, this Hersheys Chocolate Stout. Absolutely delicious but that PCH sounds dreamy, also. I'm a craft beer fan...like finding the interesting ones

Those pics were of a couple of personal strains grown on the back porch in California. They were set out to flower late September and just finished. They didn't yield a ton but they were pure compost tea fed and the trichomes were amazing. When I get to growing again (long story) I will be going back to pure compost tea/nutrient tea fed.

Sounds like a sad story without you even saying anything! Compost and nutrient teas, huh??? That would definitely be a new one to me. Your own blend?

Actually it's a triumphant story. We are relocating outside California; further north. The state isn't cannabis friendly yet. The nutrient tea ideas I got from Microbeman. He has a sight where he discussed various things related to compost and nutrient teas alike. The flower formula is...
-1 gal treated water to remove chloramines
-1 Tbsp molasses
-2-3 Tbsp earthworm castings
-1/8 tsp Kelp
-1/4 tsp Rock Phosphate
-1/4 tsp Sea Bird guano
Aerate with aquarium pump for 36 hours and apply about once a week. That is more of a nutrient tea and I haven't tried it on a grand scale yet, but on potted plants it was very successful. The overall terpene production was increased significantly as well when compared to another run I did with a well known organic fertilizer. So I am leaning to experimenting with teas when I get back in to it.

Oh Phew, I was thinking it was something terrible lol

Wow interesting! How difficult is it to acquire the kelp and sea bird guano? Same as finding bat guano?

Definitely super interesting and something I have never heard of. Teas yes, but generic teas. Also heard to be careful with molasses-have you found that to be an issue at all?

Excited for you to get started up again!

I acquire all my organic inputs from DowntoEarth fertilizers and amendments. I am not out spelunking for guano or scuba diving for kelp. My local nursery or hydro shop has me covered .

Molasses and teas altogether can have a tendency to whack out (lower) the pH. I found once a week was okay without ill effects. My last round saw me dump undiluted LABs (lactic acid bacteria) and that led to my issues my plant suffered.

(Compost) Teas are generally used to keep organic soil "inoculated" to keep biological activity at a maximum. Some consider it bro science but I have experimented with it once and now I am observing it again. We will be growing veggies and I like forward to applying my growing skills to our garden and applying teas as well.

When the teas get more nutrient oriented, things can get a bit out of whack. That flower formula offers nothing but (P-K) and no (N) which can leave the plants starving for nitrogen. I build my own soils so adding a slow release nitrogen to the soil like Feather Meal helps, plus manure; albeit sparingly. That's totally something else and my style of growing isn't for everyone.
