  1. Okay well another dodgee adventure begins! Poor spelling/Atrocious grammar/Haphazard updates/ Shite photography... We got it all! But if you can put up with the nonsense we might see some interesting things along the way. So I somehow managed to blag myself some bags of magic mud.. By all accounts this stuff is the shizz nizz, the bees knees, all singing, all dancing all bah a bleeding blowjob compo!! AND wait for it.... You just add water. Couldn't be simpler than that right? Even an idiot can't fuck that up surely you say?? We shall see! All this supersoil/no till malarkey is completely new to me so expect a few fuck ups along the way but I shall do my best like. Where are we then, 4 x 40L fabric pots have been filled with a bag each of ecolife, and 2L of water per pot have been added, Next i opted for these mulch mats made from jute, they just seemed a quick easy fix hopefully my laziness doesn't kick me in the balls at a later date, Next i divided 100g worms between the 4 pots, I say I divided but it fair to say the bulk went in the two front most pots, I'll pickup some more, next up I installed a blue mat in each pot and placed the feed lines in a 5L jug of water, I'm gonna leave them a couple of days to hydrate properly and for the worms to settle in. meanwhile I'll germinate 5 x dinafems og cookies, the 4 strongest looking will go into these. Next update will be in a few days when the lil ladies get into there new beds for the next few months.. Many thanks @diyleduk for the chance to try this stuff out, if you see any obvious mistakes be sure n shout plz mucka!Lol Thanks for looking folks, for now take care n I'll be back soon Nice1 dodge
  2. Hi there, After a first attempt with coco coir / hydro which I think I enjoyed less than I (or the plants) should have, mainly due to having to deal with the myriad of nutrients every other day, I've since been growing my plants with Canna's BioTerra Plus soil & their Bio organic nutrient line, which I (and clearly the plants too) enjoyed a lot more. I've had some minor nutrient deficiencies, potassium mostly, but I think I got that under control with some light foliar feeding. So far so good - less hassle than hydro, but still not quite where I would want it to be. In future I'd like my soil to do most of the work, ideally I'd like to have to provide only water throughout the grow. For this purpose I've been looking at supersoil recipes, what they have in common etc. - some are more US-centric in their ingredients, some more UK etc. ... since I don't need a huge amount of soil for now I'd probably try and cook a small batch first. My questions: 1. How ethical / sustainable is ethically / sustainably sourced bat guano really? If it's not, what do you use instead? 2. Instead of adding fish meal, bone meal, and blood meal individually, is it okay to add a combination product, or should I generally steer clear of those? Are there better / greener alternatives? 3. For future amending of this soil I've set up a wormery, the worms will mainly be fed with kitchen waste from bokashi buckets and gardening waste. What else can I do that's both simple and useful? Keen to hear more suggestions. Plant comfrey? How much to keep a small body of 50-150 litres of soil going? 4. How do you manage your soil in general? Do you have a bin that's cooking while you're using the soil from another, finished bin? A separate bin just for amending old soil? Or am I drastically overthinking this and your is setup much simpler? Cheers!

  4. Hi guys. Hope you're all good... Wanted to hit the forum today with some organics-related questions. Any guidance anyone can offer will be highly valued and appreciated. I've recently been pretty taken in by the latest wave of 'SuperSoil' hysteria, and always wanting to push results as far as can be achieved, I've decided I want to go back to basics and try an 'organic' mix, which depending on my calculations being correct, may or may not need to be fed with Guano Tea or whatever, an eventuality that I'm cool with; we'll let the plants tell us what they require and when... The reason I say 'organic' in quotations is because I'm told that 'supersoil', and in particular Subcool's mix are not entirely organic as such, and also aren't sustainable therefore not organic as most vegan folks, which I am not, would define them. Also before anyone says it; I know the whole idea of supersoil is to be able to just add water etc. blah blah blah BLAH BLAH (and that's nothing short of fucking awesome, Subcool is the man, but it's just not an absolute requirement for my situation, and I can supplement with EWC / Guano Tea should the need arise). And when I use the word organics in this post it is more the general sense of getting back to basics I'm talking about, not true and pure vegan full-on-ness. The layering of the soil is certainly something I can prescribe to, although many people say it's better to make a homogenous mix and just cut the super with more bag soil when vegging in the smaller pots. I will be layering mine I reckon. I already achieve strong results with my inorganic liquid nute regimen(can get some photos up should someone be keen for a look), but just want to take it the extra mile in terms of the finer points, not just yield and cannabinoid content, both of which are always good at worst and excellent at best. After seeing some supersoil and TLO results over the last few years I'm taking the plunge and I've gone out on the town in sunny Switzerland where I live at the moment and purloined the following: Plagron Bio-Supermix (1.2-1.6-0.35)... Contains feather meal, bone meal, Peruvian and Indo Guanos, Rock Phosphate, Maerl, Bentonite, Basalt, Kelp Meal, Lava Meal, Bacteria and Fungal. (Don't say it please; I already feel dirty using a large-company pre-mix, but some of these ingredients are SO damn hard to come by where I'm at, and the cost of transporting loads of single bags internationally, I just couldn't bring myself to do it) Plagron Bat Guano (3-15-4)... Stimulates bio-life. Will be replaced with Guano Kalong for the purposes of any compost tea later on. Plagron Mega Worm EWC... (100% castings from Dendrobena Veneta) Rich in bio-life and stimulates more of it. Oekohum Bio Univeral Earth... Contains no peat, humus from greengoods and bark, coconut fibre, wood fibre, pumice with bio-fert from horn and semolina. pH of substrate 6.3,range 5.9-6.7; EC 1.9-2.0, 20% organic substances Peltracom 307 Professional Substrate... VERY EXPENSIVE pH stabilized pure peat and perlite mix. EC 0.0 pH 6.0 Oekohum Cacao Gold (2.7-0.7-3 with 0.4 Mg)... A pure cacao shell mulch of sorts with much heavier mid-size chips and flakes of cacao shell (allegedly a waste product from the chocolate industry) Oekohum Bio Nutritional Humus (0.5-0.25-0.35 with 0.15 Mg) Rich in bio-life. Hauert Biorga Composted Manure(0.6-0.3-0.6min through 0.9-0.5-0.9max) 10-15% organic substance from cows and horses, 5-10% from plants. Rich in bio-life. Perlite Hydroleca / expanded clay. Will be smashed up to make smaller aeration chunks I also had lying around the house from my other grows some AN Voodoo Juice and Piranha liquids which so long as they'd be alright to use as liquids in my mix (help, someone please let me know if they shouldn't be added to the soil pre-cook) as I imagine they would be. I won't be adding much Piranha till the plants go in as I'm told Myco dies if there is no root host present within 24 hours, but Tricho does still bind without roots so we'll whack a little in 'fore she cooks; can't hurt... Again if any of this information strikes you as inaccurate please correct me. I'm never too old to learn something new and your advice will be greatly appreciated and taken on-board. So really my question for the organics champions out there is how much of what? Anything else you'd go for? I am formulating enough to make about 400 liters of the cooked stuff, and will have some left or obtain more of the base mix to layer with... I am also working on my mix in the meantime on paper and comparing, researching etc so I will post my thoughts soon as I have something put together a little better, just wanted to get this post up so I could have some replies and thoughts coming in while I went to work on it. I have about 27 days or so till I will need the mix so really need to get on it to have decent cooking time. To a large degree Subcool's mix is the Gold Standard that is widely accepted by those that don't grow organic and don't know but is not so widely and entirely accepted by aficionados of organics in general and I'd love to know why to be honest. I feel the results speak for themselves, obviously, but Sub's mix strikes me as a tad high in nitrogen as I'll only be blooming with this mix with maybe just one week of veg to get the girls settled in when they are potted-up to their final homes. Has anyone else thought this over? Also obviously the 1/3 to 1/2 layering tech that Sub speaks of is in relation to a minimum 7 gallon (approx 26 liter) pot, but he's growing large beasts and few of them whilst I grow more manageable beasts and more of them currently with my inorganic liquids and light-mix combo in smaller 14 liter pots that can actually be filled extra high to incorporate about 15.5 liters. Will I need to adapt my style to fewer, larger plants to take advantage of Subskie's methods? Or will these third to a half full pot measurements be needing upscaling due to the smaller size pots? Jesus christ, that was a long post... Sorry if I killed you with boredom reading all of it but there's just so many questions and as you guys know very well by now I'm sure, the world is full of so called 'expert of everything and master of nothing' fuckhead stoner wannabes that throw about regurgitated, outdated, and often just plain wrong information in the name of appearing knowledgeable among their friends. So I thought the internet and in particular UK420 Forums might have the answers without the bullshit. Everything and anything you've got to say on the matter please guys, please you Americans out there, we love your help, but please save the blah blah about FFOF and Roots etc, you can't get it in Europe. The soil I have is plenty quality( CERTAINLY in line with top end Plagron mixes and actually better I'd have thought); it's more the 'hotness' of the final mixed product that concerns me, so really the advice I'm after is for the proportions of nutrition related stuff mostly. And yes I am sure this topic has been heavily discussed here before and I've read most of the supersoil threads around the net without asking questions and of course if you don't use an identical mix there's gonna be questions, along with the fact that I'm not hardline to using Subcool's approach; if anyone has any other ideas I'd love to hear about it. My apologies to the mods if this post should be somewhere else and thanks again enlightened posters of the UK420 forums, it's sites like this and people such as yourself who make wading through the bullshit possible. Cheers and Peace Keep It Rolling Chaps Timmy
