Hey people I'm just dropping in to leak some intel on a AWESOME product called Azomite. I have been using it for about 2 years now and I use it for every application of growing. Its a white powder derived from a volcanic rock in Utah, Azomite has 67 major and trace elements and is completely organic!! I sprinkle a little on top of seeds im germinating in paper towel and in 24 hours or less I have a tap root .5 inch long. I mix it into soil and get a plant 10inches taller then a plant with out Azomite. This stuff is gold!!! Use it with some warm casting and bat guano and you have the power in your hands. :D I'm just letting everyone know because who doesnt like extra grams of smoke for the same amount of work?

Is this right? Ive never heard of a 5 inch tap root and not in 24 hours! Do you live in Utah, near a volcano and sell it by any chance?

He said .5 of an inch, which is only a half inch tap root, not uncommon.

In order to grow, produce and be profitable for farmers, all plants require a wide range of minerals from the soil. However, the trace mineral elements plants require are often not present in the soil due to crop removal or erosion, and usually neglected in typical fertilizer programs.

AZOMITE® replenishes all the essential and beneficial trace elements into depleted soil and results in higher yields and improved disease resistance.

An important concept for understanding the benefit of using AZOMITE® is the “Law of the Minimum”, developed by the “father of fertilizer”, Justus von Liebig.

The Law of the Minimum states that plant growth is determined by the scarcest, “limiting” nutrient; if even one of the many required nutrients is deficient, the plant will not grow and produce at its optimum.

Conventional fertilizer programs focus on marco-nutrients such as Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium (NPK), and occasionally Sulphur and Iron. However, if one of the essential trace elements --- Boron (B), Molybdenum (Mo), Copper (Cu), Zinc (Zn), etc --- is deficient from the soil, the plant will not perform at its optimum capacity and yield and immune function will diminish.

For example, a farmer can increase Nitrogen (N), but this addition cannot substitute for a lack of Zinc (Zn). Likewise, an increase in Zinc (Zn) cannot substitute for a lack of Molybdenum (Mo) or Chromium (Cr). The unique atomic structure of each element makes this impossible.

“Liebig's Barrel” does a good job of explaining Law of the Minimum. This image (below) clearly makes the point that a plant's growth is limited by the nutrient in shortest supply.

AZOMITE® is a complete dose of trace mineral elements and ensures that the “barrel” of nutrients is full. For a list of the mineral elements in AZOMITE® and their known functions and benefits in plants, click here.

A Note About the Rare Earth Elements in AZOMITE®

AZOMITE® contains about 644 ppm of Rare Earth Elements (REEs). Several scientific studies* have shown that small doses have increased plants’ resistance to drought conditions and improved growth and fruit and vegetable production.

The term “Rare Earth Elements” refers to the fifteen elements from numbers 57 to 71 on the periodic table. "Earth" is an old term for “oxide” and "Rare" was used because some of these elements were believed to be scarce in the Earth’s crust.

Many of the mineral elements that plant nutritionists now believe are absolutely essential to plants were at one time not understood by science. This may be the case with the Rare Earth Elements in AZOMITE®.

The presence of Rare Earth Elements in AZOMITE® may be one of the reasons for its positive effects in addition to the presence of 67 trace mineral elements. Science has not yet determined. But because AZOMITE® is a natural, non-toxic soil re-mineralizer with proven profitable results in plants, we can afford to wait for science to find an explanation for what farmers around the world already see with every harvest.

The site says that plants will benefit from the trace minerals found in Azomite. The nutes that I use already have these trace minerals so it seems like a waste to me.

On your grow journal it says that you're just starting out your second grow after a failed first. How do you know azomite is worth applying?

I actually did not use it during my previous grow because I was trying LED lighting only and wanted to see the effect it would have on a plant with out other stimulus. Trust me, it in not expensive and worth your money.

What about Greensand + a silica additive? Would that not be just as effective?

This stuff is the real deal people. I have been using it with great success on my garden . Green sand is great for your soil as well and I use it too along with humic acid and fulvic acid and cow poop tea. Green sand has some of the great minerals in it with a lot of potassium and it loosens up the soil. Azomite has more trace minerals and you only need 1-2 pounds per 100 sq ft area. = a better deal than green sand. Don't doubt it till you try it !!!!!!!!!!!

Azomite and rock phosphate are key elements to an effective soil blend in organic growing.....

What about Greensand + a silica additive? Would that not be just as effective?

Don't know about the silica but, the greensand takes a longer time to break down in the soil.
Azomite will start working faster and probably better for shorter grows..

Hahahaha. You guys are so funny. Only someone who has a 1000 posts can tell you how to grow pot. Its a prerequisite, didn't you read it in the rules regarding forum posts? It's clear as crystal. Section 1, article 7 states "If you don't have 1000 posts on this site you're a fucking idiot".

Ya Azomite, or rock phosphate is something you need for microbial activity. I know of no one growing organically that would not include it in their mix...

Wow this is amazing. I started this thread 4 years ago! Its like going back in time reading it! HAHAHA and now I have 441 post....still not a 1000 LOL!

I still use azomite and still love the living dog shit out of it. Though I have learned a large sum of information regarding organic gardening, I still consider Azomite a staple in my organic soil mixes.

That's uncalled for. Your 1700 postcount doesn't make you a somebody or a master grower so how about you turn it down a notch?

Azomite and Greensand are both great organic amendments!

Azomite is an essential component of Subcools water only supersoil.
Sub knows how to grow pot. And probably has 0 posts on this forum.

I'm a noob grower and I used it for my first grow and got 11.7 oz from 3 plants
1 pink plant,1 monster plant,and 1 pineapple chunk using leds.
I also used ff trio of nutrients and some big bud,along with 4 doses of wormcasting tea throughout the grow.
my point is I looked at all the benefits of azomite and considering it was $6.00 plus shipping I figured what the hell, I love GC but I 've noticed that they sure have alot of negative ppl that just ruin a good informative thread,I thought we came here to learn how to do this better.
