Haven't seen any morels yet. I'd be dancing if I had. yummm!!
what have you been gathering???
a bit of humus and leaf molds
And now the snow and freezing temps come back...Where are you placing your sensors for your fabric pots? On the side bottom running your drip up over the edge?
Where do you get cannabis meal?
no. i got the maxi blumats. so i just shove them in from above and just have them drip towards the stalk. i place the blumat just past the halfway point of the radius from the stalk to the edge of the pot, so it measures moisture closer to the outside of the pot rather than the center because the outer edges of the fabrics get dry a little quicker. water will naturally wick outward to keep that area moist enough
you make it.... it's just crumbled up leaves
w00t...got garbage bags full of cannabis meal then!!
im gonna start using it as a regular topdressing. it came from the plant.... so it should have lots of the stuff the plant needs!
Leaves are where the plant sends all of the toxins it encounters. That is why they fall off.
They are similar in function to our livers.
interesting... where did you learn that???
Bio class. We grew stem cells, leaf cells, root cells and messed around with different hormone concoctions to make the cells do some strange things
dang! i'm ready for those kinds of classes that's for sure!
soo.... basically composting your leaves back into your pots bioaccumulates those toxins....?
Exactly! The soil is naturally full of heavy metals and other natural toxins. Plants have developed this process for keeping the fruit (seeds) free of toxins. That is why you see nute burn in the leaves. Some plants like pine trees drop waste that changes the soil chemistry to prevent other plants from growing.
After Mount St Helens blew up, the plants that popped up in the fried wasteland were studied heavily to see how the new niche would be exploited. It is good subject matter for a thesis
This came down today... GG#4 at 56 days
Oh my word, fuck me running. That is some pretty bud! Nicley done buddy.
If i were using outdoor soil id be leary on the composted leafs, but for those of us that build our own soil from scratch for indoor and choose glacial rock or basal over the traditional azomite i wouldnt think the levels of toxins/metals would be extremley minimal, allowing for years of composting plant waste.
In addittion i dont use any guanos of any type anymore and only a few manures being rabbit and alpaca, nothing else. But as of the last year ive only been straight veganic with soil amendments and occasionally giving a boost of FPE i make myself.
However, you are correct about the allocation of toxins to the leaves.
wow that is some over-the-top frostiness! Congrats!
Looking good man.
use slow release forms of nitrogen, the best being lots of steer manure, hoof horn meal, feather meal (has arsenic), doghair, etc.
gotta mix slow, medium and fast release forms of nitrogen.
it's used the most of any macro by far
