Chem #4 OG - CFL Stealth

Discussion in 'Indoor Grow Journals' started by automan142, Mar 23, 2012.

  1. Well hello

    any1 who followed my last grow will hav read about my misfortunes and know that the Police took my last grow and all my stuff :(

    Iv got a box left here i originally planned to grow a Mother in so iv shipped it to a secret location ;). its kitted out with intake and exhaust fans and ther was a 125 watt cfl in ther but the police took the bulb.

    Moneys a bit low for the next week or two, so im guna get myself to CPC an get 4 lamp fittings and 4 30 watt CFLs, 2 of each spectrum and it comes to less than £15 (rather than £30 for a big cfl) That then should give me a fully functional grow box :).

    Iv got 3 seeds for these good lookin girls

    Im guna germ 1 in the next day or two and crack on. Its not at my house like the last 1 so im not worried about the police finding this grow.

    Feel free to tag along, offer advice or ask questions, if i get the same followers on this grow as my last then no question will be left unanswered.

    Thanks all :)

    It's really not expensive at all. I use a bag of foxfarm ocean Forrest. The soil has enough amendments in it to last for veg. You'll just need some bloom booster( higher phosphorus and pottash) for flower. The cheapest route i can think of would be FOxfarm soil+ a little guano topdress In flower with maybe some Compost tea. All my Soil, guanos cost around $30 us and it last me atleast 2 harvest. And with organics you can reuse your soil if you just add a tea to it to activate more microbes

    So is this ok instead

    http://www.growell.co.uk/biobizz-all-mix-soil.html

    And would i need to add anything to that asthe base.

    Guano i have my head around an the teas (not sure bout sourcing the ingredients or actually making them but i know what they do.

    I get lost when you talk about microbes lol
     
  6. I haven't used it personally so I can't speak for it, but it SEEMS legit to use. eBay has foxfarms and they ship anywhere;) If you amend your soil with enough bio-diversity than you can go your entire grow cycle using just water

    Castings are the BEST thing you could add to your soil, they're full of life and your plants will love it

    Both stores hav advised me i wont get tht fox farms over here as theyre not allowed to send it internationally so i may have to go with the bio-bizz all mix.

    Av copy and pasted this from a page about it

    It contains an effective blend of soil (20%), compost (35%), worm castings (10%) and Perlite (30%) as well as a special 'pre-mix' (5%) of biologically active organic ingredients that have been fermented for a month to create a potent mixture. We recommend using Bio-Bizz All-Mix during growth and flowering.

    Is this ok?

    and for the flowering stage is 2 - 15 - 1 bloom grade bat guano the right thing for me to get? Dunno wat the numbers mean lol
     
  14. Sounds like you've been busy researching. Lol yea that bio bizz sounds like it should work. Guano, castings, perlite are your best friends brotatoe

    Good cause iv got some en-route lol. The 10% worm castings in there, is that enough or should i add more. A forum iv read about bio-bizz all mix says to add a little extra perlite so should i add a little more castings while im mixing?

    I read you can't hurt your plants with worm castings,they just love it,apparently you could grow in straight castings.so to answer your question I'd add some yes,but its personal preference,you wont kill your plants

  19. Yea add 2 tablespoons mollasses per gallon every watering. It feeds the microbes (there's that word again lol) in your soil. Just make sure it's unsulphured, it should say on the package
