Certainly coming along!!
That will work I have tried stakes plastic before… I stopped doing it because I needed half a dozen in the pot and I was concerned about disturbing roots… ended up not seeing a problem but you never know…
That is a really good question… The hardest part about growing this way is timing… What I found works the best for me is this…
Example Week 4 in veg (first feed)
I start with Top Dress 7 days later I add Compost Tea… Because they are close together I adjust accordingly strength of top dress / Tea… not to over do it… You can always add more
Normally repeat the 2 to 3 weeks later…
I like to top dress first because after abut 1 week the top dress starts to become available to the plant… Then you add the tea and it really aids breaking down the food from 7 days ago…
But I don’t feed based on Time… I feed based on when I feel it’s time again by the way the plant looks… But Like I said normally it’s 2 to 3 weeks later. Once you learn to understand what the plant is wanting… I call this reading the plant you will be untouchable
I agree… In your case top dress as soon as you get home… I would go heavy on worm cast because it will aid the breakdown of nutes and you need that ASAP… Same day your home start your 24 brew for the next day feeding… IF they were my plants that is what I would do… And don’t forgot to add the carbs… This is prime time for carbs… This is the product that brings on the flavors
Yes they are very hungry
I should add this also… The bigger the pot size the better everything will be and easier…
My next grow I’m going to finish in 10 to 12 gallon pots (at least that’s the plan at the moment)… But once in flower I don’t recommend you change pots anymore… Should be in your final pot before you flip
Awesome info. I’ll do all of the above when I get home and begin brewing the tea at that time as well. At this point I’m ready to get home! Leaving tomorrow night…
Went for a bike ride today w/ semi-electric bikes! Super fun and gorgeous views out here in northeast Vermont. Highly recommend this leisure spot.
On my next run, I’m going to do either 10 or 15-gallon pots for my sister cookies & fluffhead og to flower. they’ll be able to fill out and then I’ll probably just use those pots from there & re-amend & plant seeds right next to the stalk or transplant next to the stalk.
The 5-gallon pots I’m using now are good. I like that they stay wet for a day or two, but not easily accessible to reach the plants for watering. I’m in a tight space. I can see now that a pump system for watering would be most beneficial for a possible pheno-hunt in 3-5 gal pots.
My watering days are feed by drip irrigation.
Compost tea feeds are manual. The tea will plug up the emitters
Here we are after the trip. I let them dry out a bit more than the last few days just to make sure they weren’t being overwatered…
Gold Leaf (tallest in the back) is looking the most nutrient deficient.
One of the 🧑🎓Grape Pupils (center) is looking more green than the clone to its left
Grape Ape (bottom right) looking light green
OMG looking happy and green
Mind Tricks looking like fireworks in the back. Super bushy & incredibly long calyx/pistils forming making the buds look bigger than the rest.
Amended with 🪱worm castings at 2-4tbsp/pot depending on size & Azos at 1tbsp/pot.
Your pot 5 gallons correct?
Am I reading this correct that you added
2 to 4 Tsp of Worm Cast and 1 tsp of Azos per pot?
So the only food was Worm Cast? I’m not sure what is in Azos isn’t that just for microbes?
Oops my mistake when typing!
I meant tablespoons. 2-4tbsp per pot and 1tbsp of azos. The azos is just azospirillum bacteria that I was previously lacking in the soil
I’m going to do a compost tea tomorrow in which I will add the fertilizers
Ok I was going to say your plants need more than just worm castings.
Your tent is popping homie
I believe that the compost tea was a bit too high in N for the girls, as the mushroom compost I added may have been too concentrated. Gold Leaf has seen better days, but the buds are stacking even still. New growth is looking greener than in the past few days, it was rather lime colored earlier this week.
I also caught a cold which sucks. But gives me more time to look at my girls, albeit I feel lethargic!
Watered with Nematodes last night but I think I’m going to flush the nutrients somewhat and do a simpler tea consisting of molasses, castings and fish hydrolysate, as this will have most if not all of the nutrients needed for flower. I guess I didn’t mix this previous batch correctly, but my, was it full of life!
Is that tea finished our just starting? It doesn’t look mature to me
That was the finished tea. It had a pretty solid top on it prior to the pic but I hear you. How do you manage to get your brew to froth etc?
Did it finish looking like this? The foam is a good indication that your tea is alive
There is only 2.5 gallons of water in that 5 gallon pale
Lots of air… how big are your air stones and pump?
That brew was boogie brew tea with a couple extra tablespoons of worm castings.
Oh woah, no it didn’t look like that. Maybe I needed less water in the bucket. It was a 2.5Gal bucket and I propped a 5gal lid on top to help w/ spillage.
That looks great. My pump has four air ports so I use 3 smaller 1” spheres and a 3” cylinder on max.
It should look like mine in the picture after 24 hours… That is the sign of a good tea…
I don’t have a data to support this but I was told it isn’t good to have a lid on top of the bucket you want the tea to be able to gas off… As you see in my picture that is way my bucket is in my flood tray. contains the mess…
With your air pump running do you have a hard bubble action happening?
Maybe compare the specs of your pump see if it has the power
This is my pump
model HGC728455 (728455)
This is my airstone… I have 2 of them for tea
Model HGC728410 (728410)
Sheesh ur gonna have to show me how to make that does not look easy
Honestly looks harder than it is. For me making it is easy. Cleaning up when done is the work for me with tea
So a quick lesson on making it what exactly do u have to do to make it an this is there food correct
