  1. Hi all This will be my first non hydroponic grow. I will be using eco life soil by eco thrive, this soil is supposed to be used without the need to add bottled nutrients, just de chlorinated water. However I see on here and a few other places people are saying it still needs to be amended in order to live up to its purpose. What is the general consensus on the best way ? It’s my first time and didn’t want to have to amend the soil that’s why I bought this stuff haha. But I still like the product and don’t mind buying more of their line to make it work better. the seeds are fried ice cream by lit farms, I’ve popped 4 in 2l pots of light mix they’re about 1 week old now and look great grow area is a grow box ambient 1.2x1.2x2.2 tall tent, I picked it because it blends in from the window with its beige outer, and I wanted something white inside for a change. lighting will be 2 hlg 350r Diablo leds but only one is in the tent at the moment ventilation is taken care of by ac infinity s6 with their 67 controller and carbon filter, I’m blowing out of the filter into a crawl space, the fan and filter are both out of the tent and insulated from the room, so only a duct is in the tent I have a smart humidifier maintaining constant 65 rh, a oil filled radiator for if needed, and the fan set to ventilate the room if it gets above 30c or 75rh. I would post some pics but can’t seem to figure out how to on this site, but they’re over on my Riu account if anyone wanted to see. thanks guys peace out
  2. So lately I've been looking into all things living soil. I stumbled upon The Future Cannabis Project channel on YouTube some months ago. They cover all kinds of topics but there is a huge focus on living soil. It's probably one of the best sources of good information I've come across so far. In a few of the live streams I've watched Leighton has mentioned the horizonal soil method but I'd never seen any content on it specifically. Last night I noticed FCP had uploaded a video covering how to build a soil bed according to this method. I thought I'd share it here for all the living soil freaks. It takes the mimicry of nature that we try to achieve with living soil to the next level. Check it out:

  5. Easy all I've got some issues happening on one of my plants that I can't work out the cause. There's two plants in my tent at the mo, and one of them is doing a lot better than the other, although I can't how there is much different between them - they are both in the same pot of living soil (think it's about 80 ish litres, I made by connecting together 3 airpots so not sure of exact size). I think my first guess was light burn, but the leaves should start praying rather than drooping if so? The light is pretty powerful though and I've not really got it up to 100% yet (Lumatek Zeus 600w). Also I think the problem got a bit worse when I did try it on 100% for half a day recently. I've also been considering under/over watering, which fits with the drooping leaves but not sure if it fits with the discolouration on the edges? The soil seems a bit on the dry side at times recently but it's hard to tell properly as it's now dense with roots and I can't get my fingers in there properly to check it out anymore. I've measured it with one of the £4 moisture/PH meters on sticks you can get from B&Q, and it doesn't seem too bad, at times a bit too wet and at other times a little too dry. Not massively so, but I don't know how accurate those things are at measuring it. I'm mainly watering with blumats, which I'm still fiddling with quite a lot, probably not helping the situation... Finally I've been considering wind burn too, as the damage does seem to be nearest the fans in the tent, vaguely anyway. But the leaves have been barely moving, just a tickle really. The fan wasn't ever pointed directly at the plants, and the branches definitely were nowhere near swaying, so I doubt the air movement has been too strong really. I have seen some fungus gnats from time to time, but only one recently, and that wasn't actually inside the tent but in the room the tent is in. There's a shit load of rove beetles in the pot though, and earlier in the cycle it was also treated with nematodes and hypoaspis miles (I got a bit of a thing about fungus gnats a couple of months ago... probably didn't need to worry so much to be honest but I've got a colony of rove beetles now thanks to @FarmerPalmersNT's post on the subject so I'm not expecting to have much trouble from them really. Environment has been a work in progress, lights on temps are around 28c ish, and RH is around 45% now. I think the humidity is rising to 85% at some points though according to my hydrometer , presumably just after lights off (not entirely sure I trust the readings from this, it's pretty old and the external probe has defo conked it). Min temp is showing around 21c. So not great... but I can't afford to buy/run a humidifier or any other heating gear really so I'm hoping for the best like this... I'm a proper beginner in case you couldn't tell so any pointers will be greatly appreciated. I'm gonna get a grow diary going at some point as it sounds like the best way to receive advice, but not able to do that just yet. Cheers!

  10. Welcome to my next foray into LED growing and living soil. I grow in a Budbox 160x75x75 with a @diyleduk Scope 220 V1 and have a 100l pot of living soil with blumat drippers to keep the moisture levels in check. I use a AC Cloudline T4 fan connected to a Mountain Air 4” Filter for extraction and passive intake. I also have some Buddies that diyleduk kindly sent to me to try out but I am struggling to install them in a way where I can have the driver outside the tent hmmmmmm This diary will cover my adventures in crossing a Psychosis bx2 male with a Psychosis bx2 female and three Smile females within my pot of living soil. I dont intend to seed the whole grow just a branch of each plant, I am in no way an experienced breeder just a pollen chucker that would like to see what results I get. Also being my last seeds of these strains I hope to preserve them in some way. I started this grow a while ago and planted my last 3 Smile seeds from @oldtimer1 and my last 3 Psychosis bx2 from @ratdog . I hit lucky and got 3 Smile females and 2 PsBx femails and a male. The best looking PSBX female the male and the three Smile females got cuts taken whilst I finished up my last grow and the seed plants were disposed of. The female cuts are now in the pot and have been for the last week, they are just starting to find there feet and have greened up as they were held back in small pots. I have started to flower the male in my small 90x0x60 veg tent under a 65w @diyleduk veg board it’s 5 days in flower in a 3 l pot of plagron batmix and will be fed just fishmix . So here are some pics to bring us up to date..... They are the cuts I took and now they are in the living soil pot..... This is the boy I got with some double serrations going on and his balls that are developing So that’s where we are at at the moment, I have made sure that the pot is well watered and the bottom of the pot is damp to the touch as @icki keeps hinting that this is what should be happening. I also have made some hash recently for my “rainy day” stash so would like to share that with you too.... From right to left is Sift, Bubble and some hash I picked up last December. That’s it for now folks. Hope you enjoy the ride!! peace lil d.

  17. Hello all, This is my diary for the foreseeable, I am in a 75x75x160 budbox with a 112l fabric pot filled with about 100l of ecolife soil from indoor organics. This is the second run in this pot and have amended with neem meal, MBP, life cycle all watered in with biosys. I have also planted some crimson clover as a cover crop. Above the plants is a dimmable scope 220, I have a mountain air with a 4” ruck and passive vents for intake. Water is being delivered by blumat drippers fed from a 47l tank sat outside the tent with an air stone in. Not currently using the full capacity of the tank but handy if I want to go away at any point. Plants are 2 x Serious seeds AK47 and 1 x macf1 x zkittzo subbies by @buddy13 All plants are cuts I took about 3weeks ago and have binned the seed plants. Pics. Day 1 veg all the best folks peace. lil d.
