    I am using G&B organics for citrus trees! It's done the job not only for my indoor buds but my outdoor veggies as well. Very effective and only 9$ at the hydroshop

    I recently switched from Hydro to using fox farms coco loco and ocean forest. I recently ran out of great white, and will be replacing with mykos and using compost teas (I studied this sites sticky). I plan to add in, hydrolized fish and kelp extract to my compost tea. What else can I use to bring up the micro-organisms to create a solid food web. Using soil is much different than hydro (im fairly new). Would love some advice? azos maybe?

    I have ran ocean forest with and without mykos and would have to say that they must do a decent job at getting a healthy mix of needed bacteria because I see no difference when using great white. When the plant is moving towards flowering is when I get some return on $$$ for the liquid mykos mixed with kelp extract. The down side is that the fungus gnats love it to.

    I just make a pile of lawn clippings, after a while you can dig out pure white mycelium covered bits from the bottom.
    The compost I use also comes pre-inoculated.It is pretty important if your compost contains lots of wood. (not ideal, but not a deal breaker)

    I'm still trying to source some myco or something that I can plant with it in it. Bloody straya mate.

    That white "mycelium" in your clippings is much more likely to be actinobacteria, as fresh lawn clippings are relatively high in nitrogen - not the environment beneficial saprophytic fungi (which is the kind you will have in that woody compost) like.

    100% not mycorrhizal fungi though, since by and large mycorrhizal fungi only grow in the company of living roots (although scientists have found switchers, who can live on their own until a root comes along).

    I will look into it. It looks just like mycelium though.

    Yeah actually they have an alternate name too, actinomycetes, because of their strandlike morphology, so, easy to confuse with a legit fungus ;)
