LD When you state: "Even with this mix, I only add about 2 cups to 1 c.f. of my potting soil mix. I depend on the quality of humus to be the driving source." ...are you referring to the following meal mix, which you also reference later on as the "fertilizer mix, mineral mix"? =================================== 3x alfalfa meal 3x linseed/flaxseed meal 1x soybean meal 1x canoa/rape seed meal 1x sunflower meal (this had to be sourced from an organic dairy as it seems that sunflower meal is used to increase milk production. Don't bother - LOL) 1x organic fish meal (nitrogen) 1x organic fish bone meal (phosphorus) .5x kelp meal .5x neem seed meal .5x crustacean =================================== Also, Sunshine #4 is not the same thing as the Sunshine Growers Organic Mix, correct? It is it's own product? ...just wanting to make sure I understand your recipe correctly. 1.) Mix up the "meals [aka - fertilizer/mineral mix]" at the rates listed in an amount great enough to cover the correct amount of "meal mix to Sunshine Growers Organic Mix" you wish to create (to create about 6 cups worth in this case). 2.) Mix up the organic humus components in equal parts (to create 1cf in this case). 3.) Throw the humus mix (1cf.), fertilizer/mineral mix (~5.75 cups? to the 2.8c.f. of Sunshine Growers Organic Mix), and 8 cups of bokashi bran together and mix for 15 mins. 4.) Add a bag of the Sunshine Growers Organic Mix and about 1/2 pail of organic rice hulls (to get the 2.8c.f of Sunshine up to 3 c.f), in the mixer with the organic humus components and mix for another 15-20 mins. 5.) Enjoy your hard work. ...last question is, if this is correct (if not, please correct me), do you let this mix rest for any period of time and/or do you wet it at all (in general and/or before letting it rest)? Thanks in advance.
