    Please do not answer this unless you ACTUALLY are contributing. I don't care if you're stoned or about any other side bar. (Can you tell I am tired of these blogs when no one can make progress due to side bars)



    I have found this bottle of Chitosan Finings. I am assuming that the only ingredients with a product such as this would be H20 and Chitosan. Considering it is a product that is used in the process of wine making and ultimately will be consumed by humans.
    AMAZON


    The level of chitosan is 1%. I am estimating that 1ml / 20Gal. I am basing this off of a product called Agri-House ODC™ Colloidal Chitosan. Which, is at 0.25% chitosan and suggests 1ml / 5gal.
    Agri-House


    The intention is to incorporate this product or any viable and cheaply sourced chitosan into my hydroponic solution and replace overly expensive Bud Factor X.

    Can you tell me the difference between Chitin and Chitosan? Will my Chitin from crab shell in my soil break down to become chitosan?

    SIDE BAR (I accept side bars from Mainer's)- Not exactly, Chitosan comes from Chitin.

    Chitosan causes SAR in plants which means it causes them to put up their defenses.
    On the west coast they use Chitosan on their Pine trees to ward off Pine Beetles. It causes the pine trees to exude more sap and pine jizz. As for cannabis it causes stinkier buds, more density, more flowering spots... The list goes on... Lots of trichomes.

    I don't use 100% organic indoors. I run hydro.
    I do organic for my outdoors though.

    Yeah, I saw those. They were helpful to an extent.
    Thanks for posting your "GARDEN MYTHS" website
    That has some great information that makes wicked good sense...

    I have found organic outdoor tougher because animals like to dig up plants for bone meal, blood meal, alfalfa, kelp and other tasty bits.

    Put spikes in the ground for those assholes, traps, anything. Or you can be nice and put The Walking Dead mobile alarm kit around them... Soda cans and shiny metal to make noise, that should deter them.
