    If you reach that point and come here and ask..."hey,what do I do now that it's time to re-amend,this is what I have.???..."...someone will help you,but it is here in the thread..all the little things each grower does to sustain the soil for repeated indoor cannabis cycles.

    Re-ammending I find is fun - you get to pick and choose a few things to mix in there, and then watch plants grow to see how ya did!

Every time I think it's winding down, a new gem appears But for real, I will eventually organize the meat of this thread into a PDF by topic - Shmalphy has been awesome enough to do a page-by-page breakdown of the topics for the first 65 or so pages, but seriously, this is the fastest-growing thread I've ever participated in.

With a small amount of growing skills a person could easily grow some quality cannabis by simply reading and taking notes from the first 50 pages or so, a mere couple hours of time. Or a person can decide not to read it and spend days (if not weeks) scratching their head...wondering what's wrong.

    Good Luck.
    The greatest thing I’ve picked up from this thread is to not be afraid of living soil. That was fuelled by the Gasman himself.

      To reiterate... an attempt to summarize this information was published in the last International Cannagraphic eMag. We created a whole section about Living Organic Soil.

      This is the thread that got me started using organic soil and nutrients, and thankfully ALL my plants in the garden are flourishing nicely! From tomatoes to Pune, everything is doing amazingly better than last year. I will post some pics soon...

      But here is a condensation of just one topic about Living Organic Soil from the eMag:

            Good to see this thread opened up again. Now people who weren't around when it was active can still access the info without having to dig through the forum. It's pretty lame it took this long, though.

            It should be a sticky but at least if it's open it can be bumped periodically.

              This thread taught me a shitload.
              I stayed subbed hoping for a restart.

                  The thread was locked for a while because of the size and another was started.

                      wurd on that! lol

                      here is a shot of my current room in early flower. Just received a folair of Alfalfa meal, Kelp meal and Aloe Vera at lights off before they go to sleep.

                      this is a new mix with less of an aeration device as mentioned by Microbeman @ 15% with lava rock only.


                        That is cool Vonforne! Aloe Vera is amazing... look at those plants shining and happy~!


                          Kind of droopy due to the folair but I plan on taking a picture today at lights on and see what they look like then.


                            Greetings Organic Soil Aficionados!
