    i found clones rarely reveg...they can though...

    seed stock definitely can reveg...they can make some big gnarly bushes by the time the daylight hours change...

    in my experience sativa dominant plants grown from seed are the most likely to reveg...

Any advice appriatiated. Cheers guys
    i have been vegging indoors and flowering outdoors for years now...clones will go into flower straight away when put out...seed plants take about 2 weeks longer...regardless of the time of year...i grow plants to a good size before putting outside to get a decent harvest...

    good luck

    The lucerne can get nasty indoors with blue mould but never had a prob outdoors. It also inhibits the growth or germination of weeds which is a bonus...

    You are making compost in situ haha nice one

Just keep in mind marijuana is a complete nutrient whore and will love you for doubling the amount you would give these food crops. Especially potassium... have fun with it bro and if you are comfortable report back on your success or failure.



    I have discovered that if mulching with Lucerne, and it's chopped up, once it's watered, the end result is golden slime! which must completely block oxygen out and would probly kill the soil life for a while. So a second LOT of Dolomite was needed to sweeten the rot.


    (BTW local farmers say there is no such thing as Lucerne Chaff. "Chaff" applies to grasses which Lucerne is not.)


    Within two days of placing the mulch the clods of soil began to disintegrate and the whole bed heated up. middle of winter and soil bed temps are between 24.5C and 25.5C. there is a LOT of chook poo in the bed!


    Anyway, all is looking good ... Cheers ...

    thanks for yr input, Silver. I have no precedents for organic gardening (and am not intuitive in the garden) so I need a "template" at least to begin ...

    Looks good Ted.

    There is no doubt the Life Force program is excellent but i believe i can and do achieve similar results with things like comfrey, kelp, homemade compost and chook poo which will be much less costly. Having said that the humic acid granules are very affordable and go a long way...

    Good System? Comments Welcome







    The blurb says this is sufficient. Do you think this can be improved upon?

    Your bed shouldn't shrink if you sheet mulch properly it will grow quite significantly... until its all broken down.

    If you mix it all through it will also grow initially and then shrink as the matter is 'digested' and rain compacts the soil...

    Yeah you can dig chaff in if you like or just sheet mulch as mentioned which is much less labour intensive and lets the worms and critters move the organic matter into the soil. If you plan on using the bed soon i would get some lucerne chaff...

    Nutritech have some good stuff i used to use their humic acid granules which are very affordable and go a long way.

    Did you listen to the podcast?
