Need help with soil mix

Discussion in 'Growing Organic Marijuana' started by smokefiend420, Mar 14, 2012.

  1. sorry if i caused confusion (i left with my family for a few days), what i meant to ask was, could i transplant into a "semi"-finished mix (only "cooked" say 2 weeks) if i transplanted into the ground rather than into a larger pot (5 gal)?
    Its my birthday! =D
     
  2. do you allow your soil to cook? how long? just curious... thanks
     
  3. I have some soil now that has been cooking for two months then I have some I just started. I usually wont use it unless it has cooked for a month minimum. keepem green dirrtyd
     

  4. A bump for the cereal guy.;)

  5. Yeah looks like dirty D omitted the key ingredient.... 1 cup lucky charmz... just kidding
     
  6. i looked up some ingredients in dirtys recipe to see how much the averages costs were and what they look like so i can pick them up or something similiar
    but i noticed some popped up on google only as liquid ferts I was wondering if they only come in the form or if good is just stupid

    some were humic acid
    bio fish meal
    the iron - sulfur
    crab meal didn't even show up
     
  7. Everything in my recipe is a dry amendment my friend. Also the company is listed for each product that I use. They all have a website also even though I can walk into a store and buy them all. keepem green dirrtyd
     
  8. You seem to use quite a bit of fish products. Ever have problems with animals?
     
  9. Actually no I dont or havent in my backyard. I do see raccoons in the neighborhood. I'm actually just substituting other products with the fish products. I could make this mix and take all the fish products out and substitute with various guanos and get same results.Keepem green dirrtyd
     
  10. Planned on telling you the same thing :D
     
  11. Some of you go to a LOT of work unnecessarily IMHO. If you want a bigger "yield" use a simpler soil mixture and buy a couple of more clones instead of fancy ingredient soils. ;) :smoke:

    Idk man, I kind of love organics for that reason alone ; crazy ass diversity.

    I am honing my mix a lot lately, and using earthworms to process most of my meals, but still, bring on the craziness.

    Cheapest rock dust I have found, which I have recently read could be a founder in mineralizing the earth.
    I'm talking granite, cheap as hell under $2 a 5gal bucket, granite. Make sure they can grind it for you though, might cost an extra 5 spot.

    I am applying it sparringly to the worms, and 1 cup / cf for my pots.
    This, plus 1/2 cup lime, 1 cup Gypsum and I'm rolling. About 50lbs of each altogether under $20.

    And that's just my rocks meng ;)
     

  13. Nothing wrong with that my friend. ;) I just think many people over think it all and rack their brains trying to come up with a soil that grows bud better than the next guy. I think that is total BS personally.
    The XJ13 cola in my avatar was my first grow last season and I used plain old Super Soil from Home Depot and didn't put in any perlite or anything.
    I fed it Spray-N-Grow for a while and then switched to Fox Farms Tiger Bloom and Big bloom and it did well considering my first time.

    Outside right? Have you gotten your native soil tested? You could be sitting on a gold mind.

    Plus idk anyone who adds perlite outside.
     

  15. It was outside but it was in a 5 gallon black nursery pot so perlite would have been a good idea to help drainage and get air to the roots better.
     
  16. Bump for Dirrtyd's recipe.
