    IMG_0304.JPG Yesterday 28-05-2017 I put the Plants in bigger pots. When they came out they had nice roots colour White. The potting has to go smooth so your plants don't get any stress and keep on growing stronger and bigger! I used a little rooting liquid that's all. I let you know when I give them 20-10-20 growing food NPK. Okè that's all for now, later Peer

    wow they look great! What kind of soil are you using? A one time feed of 20-10-20 carrys you through flowering? or do you have a high PK nute coming?

    @Lite there are other techniques and methods of growing with soil Lite. One that im familiar with is using dry powder additives and mixing up your own batches of soil. There are recipes all over the internet but it looked too pricy for me to try initially. There was literally laundry lists of different things bone meal blood meal dolomite lime etc etc that you put into your soil to create the perfect ecology of nutrients that carries you throughout your entire grow cycle very gently and naturally feeding your plant. And these are recipes that include coco as well.

    1. Fox farms Mix
    - half Bail Pro-mix BX
    - 1 bag FoxFarms Ocean Forest
    - 1 cup dolomite lime
    - 1 cup blood meal
    - 1 cup bone meal
    - 10-20% extra perlite
    This will last you 3-4 month growth cycle from veg through flower requiring Tap Water ONLY - No extra nutrients.

    2. Also a fox farms mix
    1 bag ocean forest
    1 bag happy frog
    1 bag Bcuzz coco coir
    1 1/4 Cup Bone meal
    1 1/4 Cup Blood meal
    3/4 Cup Lime
    4 Cups Earthworm castings
    1/2 bag of extra chunly perlite
    Add water only, use a PK booster twice (preferably Organic, google is your friend), done.

    3. Pro mix and miracle grow
    1 bag pro-mix for containers
    - 1 bag miracle grow organic choice - Garden Soil (it's ok that it says "not for containers")
    - 1 cup blood meal
    - 1 cup bone meal
    - 1/2 cup dolomite lime
    - +20% chunky or coarse perlite
    * This mix is enough to fill 10, 3 gallon bags.
    This mix requires WATER ONLY from start to finish, no extra nutes.

    4.Organic fox farm
    - 1 Bag FoxFarm Ocean Forest
    - 1/4 Bag FoxFarm Light Warrior
    - 5 Cups Vermiculite
    - 10 Cups Perlite
    - 4 Cups worm castings
    - All organic - Water only from start to finish.

    5.Plant magic mix
    - 1 bag of plant magic plus soil
    - 1 bag of plagron batmix
    - 1 cup of calcified seaweed (or dolomite lime)
    - 1 cup of blood meal
    - 1 cup of bone meal
    - 20-30% chunky perlite
    *** This is a hot mix for weaker strains. If you have a hardy strain it is perfect. To play it safe you can reduce the blood and bone meal to 3/4 cups.

    6. Peat and coco mix
    - 3 parts peat
    - 2 parts topsoil
    - 2 parts coco
    - 3 parts perlite
    - 1 part mushroom compost
    - 1 part wormcasts

    - Dolomite lime 5g/litre
    - N guano - 4g/litre
    - P guano - 4g/litre veg, 8g/litre flower
    - Rock phosphate 5g/l
    - rock potash 5g/l
    - seaweed meal 5g/l

    *** the bat guano amounts change a little with strain. for instance the Blueberry has less N guano in the mix - but that standard mix works for pretty much everything.

    *** Feeding nutes is not necessary, but late in flowering *sometimes* a a boost like BioBizz Bloom could be used depending on the strain.

    7.Another pro mix and miracle grow
    Half a bail of promix
    - 2 bags of Miracle grow Organic Choice Garden Soil
    - Half a bag of Worm Castings
    - 20% perlite
    - 1 cup bone meal
    - 1 cup blood meal
    - 3/4 cup powdered dolo lime (pellets ground in coffee grinder)
    - 1/2 cup guano

    - Water only from start to finish, no nutes

    8. Yet Another pro mix and miracle grow
    - 1, 3.8cf Bag of Pro-mix
    - 1, 2cf bag of Miracle Grow Organic Choice Garden Soil
    - 1/4 bag of FoxFarm Ocean Forest
    - 1 Cup blood meal
    - 1 Cup bone meal
    - 3/4 Cup dolomite lime
    - 1 1/2 Cups Kelp Meal
    - 20% Chunky Perlite

    - Water Only from start to finish

    Some notes.

    All references to LIME refers to powdered Dolomite Lime, not pellitized. You cannot use "hydrated Lime" either.

    Lime is a micro-nutrient and a PH Balancer.

    Also. These mixes are not for seedlings or 1 week old plants. Your plants need to grow until they require nutrients, usually around 14-20 days or so depending on the strain, and then you transplant them to the soil mix.

    These mixes are too hot for seedlings and newborns.

    I already did. Buying the happy frog soil. It was not cheap. And no not me. Im going hydro. Im saying the type of feeding he is using might be a dry powder additive like int he recipes i listed. I was just showing you another way people grow. Theres also this one they do where they try to mimic the forest floor. Dont use nutes they just ammend the soil with like earthw orm castings and compost teas and crap like that and every single way there is to grow ive seen amazing results. It really just boils down to what works best for you.

    IMG_0457.JPG IMG_0458.JPG So you have done your home work. I use good soil and only bio products and perlite. This is enought with the grow food NPK 20-10-20 until flowering time. I put them unther 12 hours at the end of this month the plants look like this now. This time i used no perlite as seen in the picture. All the plant are toped sorry i,m Dutch so i mean that i cut the head top from the plant so you get a bussy plant not only 1 stam. In 2 weeks i put them under 12 hours let you all know how many males and females ! Later Peer

    Hey Peer. What products do you use?What grow food is it? We also use the term topping here in the united states. Are you familiar with the technique called fimming? It stands for fuck i missed. (apologies for profanity if it is ill received) topping-vs-fiming-sm.jpg
    Fimming seems to be gentler ont he plant. It recovers faster from being cut and it grows 4 new tops instead of 2.

    This is a picture from the plants when I game home you can see that they start to flower and I think it,s between day 10 and 15. At this time I have to put them out in the sun so I make new pictures to show you all the progress. And yes I was a little short in the 20-10-20 I finished it, and the growshops are all gone the police raided them all so now I have to find stuff on the internet and I did find a good shop who sells Canna grow food ! It.s liquid and you can buy 1 to 10 liters, but I don.t need it anymore that,s for the next time as you know what I mean. So Lymmie have a great day and until later Peer
