Pot Growing LocationsMany people know that thriving berry patches give off a similar radar color as cannabis. This is why raspberry and blackberry patches are prime spots. The swamp is good because deer and other animals tend to stay away from these spots, and it is very wet (weed grows like a weed and it will thrive with alot of water). A fellow grower claims the best spots are when your foot will smoosh in the ground a few inches.
Does anybody out there with lots of growing experience know of any other prime locations? Has anyone grown cannabis in a swamp region or berry patch, and how were the results?
Soil volumeOutdoor growers dig large holes in the ground outside and re-fill with great soil mixes that cannabis will thrive in. My plan for this summer is to dig big holes probably sized like a 20 gallon pot, maybe bigger.
Is this a big enough hole or should i dig it larger to ensure optimal growth? Will it be worth digging it bigger than 20 gallon? (Soil costs alot of money).
My Soil Mix
I plan on using a perfect soil that my plants will thrive in. My plans are to use 60% or so Pro-Mix potting soil and 15% worm castings for the top of the hole. The rest of the 25% will be organic fertilizers. The last 25% will stay at the bottum of the hole. I plan on mixing a shovel full of bonemeal, a shovel full of dolomite lime, a few shovels of cow manuer, a shovel of bat guano, a few shovels of worm castings.
When using polymer crystals to hold water, how much should i use in my mix? Should polymer crystals be at the bottum of the hole or spread out? Should i cover the top of the hole with mulch? Whats a good mulch?
