I've been lurking around for years here trying to stop dikkin up my dank & I've finally got it down to a system I can easily manage. The methods I use come from a growing system called TLO or true living organics which is just a natural way to grow coined by some dude out in mendo named the Rev who is an author and editor in chief of Skunk magazine. Anyway I'll start at the end: I harvest a plant and then hang dry the buds. The root ball then goes into a huge tote bin while awaiting amendments. Here is a pic of my soil lab: The bin on the left is full of finished mix while the bin on the right is full of unamended root balls recently harvested. All my mix started out as either FFOF or sunshine mix #4 and has been recycled over & over again for years now. When the bin on the right begins to get empty from doing transplants I will dump in a tray of fresh worm castings from my own worm bin and add all my soil amendments which include: Alfalfa meal Composted chicken manure Greensand Azomite Garden gypsum Bat guano Neem seed meal Oyster flour 5-5-5 happy frog fertilizer Glacial rock dust Soft rock phosphate Humic acid Feather meal Dolomite lime Fish bone meal Blood meal Then it sets for 30 days minimum and the mix is ready to use. I typically put seedlings and/or young clones in the unamended mix but the finished mix is for transplants to larger containers. Plants begin their long journey to the bloom room in my small veg cabinets. I have about 8 cfls in there and some bar style flourescents but it's expensive a f to run all these bulbs. I try to run only one side at a time but can squeeze up to 12 plants in 3g pots in there if I wanted to. I use this just for clones & seedlings atm.
