Hello i'm first time grower. i want to build soil mix, but im bit confused how much should i mix into the soil, then how much can i put into teas? i have EC meter but i does not found any thread about how tea EC should look like. What i have: Plagron Lightmix soil Fish Hydrolyzate NPK 2-1-1 Plagron Bat Guano NPK 3-15-4 Blackstrap Molases NK 0.6-2.8 Kelp Hydrolyzate NPK 1-0,1-21 Leonardite extract humic/fluvic acid Botanicare Liquid Karma Bacillus IT35 Amyloliquefaciens Volcanic Basalt Epsom Salt Perlite Root Pouch Peace
Hy, I want to make my own organics soil mix. For example this: "LC's Soiless Mix #2: 6 parts Pro Mix BX or HP / Sunshine Mix (any flavor from #1 up) / Fox Farm Ocean Forest or Light Warrior 2 parts perlite 2 parts earthworm castings Powdered (NOT PELLETED) dolomite lime @ 2 tablespoons per gallon or 1 cup per cubic foot of the soiless mix. If you use a 3 qt. saucepan as “parts” in the amounts given above, it equals about 1 cu. ft. of soiless mix and you can just dump in a cup of powdered dolomite lime. The dolomite lime is for Ca. and Mg. not just to adjust the PH of the soil." As I see the components of the soil I will use BioBizz Light-mix, because the other soils availability in my area is hard. Than I want to put some guano in my soil and give weekly a tea. I found a recipe also: "RECIPE #2 If you want to use guano in your soil mix... Bongaloid's Guano Mix. Use all these items combined with one gallon of soil mix. 1/3C hi N Guano Mexican Bat Guano or Peruvian Seabird Guano (PSG) 1/2C hi P Guano (Jamaican or Indonesian Bat Guano) 1TBS Kelp Meal" My questions: 1. Do I need the extra dolomite lime (I can buy a product, called Dolomita, 36% Ca, 20% Mg). It is in Biobizz light mix too. Do i need due the guano high PH? 2. I can buy just Guanokalong bat guano. NPK: 1-15-1 + Ca + Mg 1/2 cup to a gallon soil isn't a bit too much? 3. What can I add instead of the high N guano? Because i can't order this. I can order for example Guanokalong Fish Powder 4-5-1 or alfalfa powder. 4. For kelp meal i can order this 1-0-2. Or Guanokalong seaweed 0,5-2-0. But probably not the same as in the recipie. 5. What about K? I bring it from the molasses? Or can i use something else? Guanokalong Palm Tree Ashes 0-3-14 but this act as dolomit lime as i see Algae extract 0,5-3-19 6. I live in a hard tap water area. My EC is 0,7, ~350 ppm, PH is 7,8. So i need a soil mix, that i can water with RO water, or atleast 50-50 tap-RO. Can you help me, please?
