    I use low fat milk with acidophilus added with 10 parts rainwater as foliar to rid and prevent powdery mildew.
    Then what I don't drink that spoils goes to compost.

    And this tops it, best part of the forums is right here, where it turns out we are growing our top shelf on dead puppies and piss, mostly

    And also our afterbirths. This is awesome - I almost wish I didn't really think so, but it's true;

    My cats love a good 30/30/30 mix of rested tap water, filtered tap and tap, I read they like the chlorine, I think it helps mitigate the high levels of bacteria they would otherwise be using to digest raw food and associated bacteria. But just a theory, I like a little chlorine too sometimes

    I really am dying to get a fish tank to try fishganics haha aquaponics!

    One of the ingredients I use in my soil mix that I've been reusing for about 10 years now is when adding some ammendments back to the soil after a crop, I add organic hulled hemp seeds to the soil. :D

    Anyone ever use or see cherry stones for chicken grit? Claims on the bag it's perfect for container areation. However I saw aluminum oxide was at 3 to 4 percent! I'm trying to get away from perlite when I recycle my soil.

    Hello fellow microbe nerds! Just thought I share some cool stuff I did this run. First is fermenting cannabis plants. Every time I topped I saved them, and fermented them. Plants absolutely loved when I fed the soil this concoction. I also fermented cannabis flowers that I cleaned out from the middle of my plants after they have been flipped for a month. Haven't used that one yet, but will when my outdoor goes into flower. Also dandelions are amazing to ferment. The ladies love those dandelion microbes when they are in flower! And for any other northern California residents, I fermented Star Thistle this year for veg. AMAZING! Try it next year and will be so happy you did!!!! Peace

    I've experimented with organic vegetable glycerine (Glycerol) as a foliar spray with interesting results. According to the following story from Penn State Universities' news department, Glycerol "is easily absorbed by the leaves where it converts to a bioactive form known as glycerol 3-phosphate (G3P) which then reacts with a fatty acid species called oleic acid and changes the fatty acid profile of the cells."


    Long story short, in some model plant species, certain types of glycerol-related fatty acids appear to trigger plants defense mechanisms protecting plants against various pests including powdery mildew and is 100% flavourless & odorless so is safe to use on buds upto 2 weeks pre-harvest in my personal experience.

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24863347 Application of glycerol as a foliar spray activates the defense response and enhances disease resistance of Theobroma cacao.
