    I'm sorry to


    I'm sorry to bug you, what do you think about my mix? Should I add anything else? And what size pots do to use indoors?

    Broad mites are a bitch.
    If you are in flower, the best option is early harvest, IMHO.
    (Don't forget to rinse buds w/mild peroxide solution before drying.)
    If you are still in veg, hot shots will nuke mites. Gotta minimize airflow for it to work effectively because they use vapor to kill bugs. Penetrates every nook & cranny.
    Good luck!
    (I realize hot shots are not organic, but nothing else has worked well for me.)

    No bother mang, that's why we're here :) I think your mix looks good. I'd definitely get the basalt for extra mineral content. worms are good for worm bin, but those composting worms dont do tunneling like a night crawler would, if that's what you're looking for.
    I have some gypsum in my mix for some extra calcium mainly, but honestly I've never done a run without it so i couldn't tell you if it's crucial or not. but Ca is always a good thing to have, as its used a lot during flower production and helps build strong stalks and cell walls.
    I also have some insect frass in the mix as well for some extra chitin material. it has a 2-2-2 NPK from what I remember. my early mixes did fine without the frass though, not a deal breaker by any means.
    For pots i'm running 7.5 fabs right now but i think i'll be moving to 10 gal. The next run of 4 con cheese I do is gonna have one 10 gal fab, one 7.5 gal fab, one 5 gal plastic, and one 7-10 gal plastic. So i'm gonna see which pots that particular strain likes.
    it's good to experiment and see what works for you and the types of strains you grow.
    my friend was just telling me the other day about a couple strains he has that he only grows under LED because they just produce better.
    one thing i would suggest is getting some cowboy charcoal and making some bio char. smash that shit up in a sheet or something into the smallest pieces you can make. charge it for a week, like making an aerated tea basically, with some minerals and nutrients (heaviest on the N side for the nutes), and then for the last day i put some molasses and castings in there to help populate the char with organisms as well. drain it, but don't let it dry, just mix it right in. i saw some good results when using it and i'm working on getting some more together for my mix to have all the time.

    The pictures at the beginning of this thread no longer show up. So will that happen to all the threads and all the pictures we post?
    Apologies, I know it's off topic and this is not forum support, I just went back to page 1 to refrence some old info and was shocked the pics were gone which in turn makes quite a few posts irrelevant.:cuss:

    i would think you could have a few of each in there as they have separate domains. especially in a 10 gal.

    Yeah I've tried it and just think that you would get a higher quality finished product with a ROLS mix, Perhaps the quality of RM3s cannabis is top shelf despite not being organic, I don't know. But I do know there was far too much water retention with the clay, and I didn't even use that much (special kitty). Won't go back to it again but wish you well with it and hope that it works for you!

    @CaptainCAVEMAN Yeah I noticed that too when I read through this thread. A lot of missing photos near the beginning. I was frustrated wanting to see people's beautiful organic flowers but to no avail. There are others throughout the thread that are missing. Sometimes if I reloaded the page they'd show up though, not the ones near the start from the originators which is a bummer.
