Peat compost to be banned from 2024

125 posts in this topic

I been reusing the same compost for quite awhile now.. 

 

I don't even riddle out the old roots anymore just break it all up, add some amendments, leave it to sit awhile with the occasional sprinkle of water to keep moist then reuse. 

 

It's not as good as going full living soil granted but I haven't seen any decline in plant quality or root growth etc. 

 

Reuse ftw.  

 

Using compost once and binning is massively wasteful it seems to me now, though for years I did it without so much as a thought..

Looking forward to this mate. Are you making your own biochar? 

Of course I am, I've made about 8-10,000 litres so far. 

 

It's all made on site, my soil mix. Everything. Every component. Closed loop. No outside input.

Those are 3 years old mate, a lot can change in that time and to be fair she looks peng and the ones in the back are much chunkier. 

 

Yeah cos my 12/12 from seed is obviously a serious attempt to maximise yield and plant size lol , or are you referring to the 78g i pulled from 0.2m² with 55cm headroom ? Again hardly a proper grow and my first indoor run I might add.

 

I'd say something horrible about your grows, but I can't find a single picture and I'm not 12 lol
