  1. As per my previous thread here: I am going to attempt to convert to no teas. I decided a huge bed was the way forward so got the very biggest one I could fit in my tiny no till room. Its a 100 gallon/380 litre beast. Its roughly 85x85 across and 50cm deep. At the moment I have what I thought were four 70 something litre root nurse fabric pots. Turns out they are actually 39 litre....oops. They have served me extremely well and I've had a lot of cycles through them (maybe 10 or so). Originally the plan was to use these in the greenhouse, but owing to my shitty maths it has become necessary to recycle the soil in these and use it in the new mix. I figure this will help speed up the cycling of the new soil anyway. Here's the existing mess, I ran some freebie auto seeds through them just to keep them running and so cleared those out first and fed them to the worms, the rest is a load of neglected nonsense from the clone room: Next cleared it all out: Wanted to bed the pots on something better than the impermeable polystyrene I'd used to get it off the cold floor. Originally I was considering removing a section of the concrete floor and part burying it but soon decided I couldn't be arsed so decided on a sand bed instead.

  24. After being inspired by some fantastic grows on here, I've decided to have a go at building my own living soil from scratch. I've got a 100 gallon (450 litre) round fabric pot which should fit nicely into a 1.2 x 1.2m tent. All the ingredients are ready for mixing in 1-2 weeks time when the current grow is done. 4 fem plants that have been inoculated with michorrizal fungi are currently vegging ready for the big bed. I'll be using the following mix: 30% pete moss (don't judge but apparently it's a sustainable source) 20% soil (re-used from current grow) 10%ish woodland leaf mulch 25% worm castings 15% aeration/drainage - pumice, biochar, horticultural sand Then I'll be mixing in the following amendments: (per cubic foot) 1/2 cup kelp meal 1/2 cup malted barley 1/2 cup neem meal 1/2 cup crab meal 1/4 - 1/2 cup Insect frass humid acid 2 cups rock dust 1 cup gypsum For a cover crop I'm using clover, yarrow and some Thai basil. Barley straw for mulch plus nettles when available and some sprouted alfalfa. Tiger worms, earthworms, springtails and a few centipedes will be added along with Ambylsius Californicus and Phytoseiulus persimilis for spider mite issues. I recently set up a 200 litre worm bin outside that will hopefully provide me with an unlimited supply of the highest quality castings. It is filled with woodland leaves and mulch and I added malted barley, kelp meal, neem meal, coffee grounds, sprouted alfalfa and broccoli, ground eggshells, old rootballs and AVB. It is currently teaming with life with lovely thick mycelium everywhere! (I may split this into 2 bins next autumn to double the supply) I will feed no nutes but will be adding the following amendments after veg and flower: worm castings, leaf mold, root balls, AVB, sprouted alfalfa mulch, malted barley, neem, nettles, horsetail, rock dust, biochar, insect frass, aloe powder, coconut powder, ground cloves. I have neem oil and aloe to make into a foliar spray if needed for extra pest control (may possibly add rosemary, garlic or chilli) I'd like a Blumat set up but can't afford at the moment as I spent everything on the soil mix. So I'll be hand watering to start with and I just ordered a soil moisture meter. I'm hoping not to have too much run off and I'm a bit unsure if I should add some larger stones/rocks at the bottom to help with drainage or not. It will be sitting in a waterproof tray so a little run off shouldn't be a problem. This is unchartered territory for me so I'd appreciate any feedback on the mix/amendments or if there's anything I'm overlooking. I stressed way more than necessary on getting the exact ratios as there's so much differing info out there.
