Let me start off by saying I am a long time hydro grower.
After reading this section of the forum for the last several months, as well as reading up on organic living soil and the benefits it provides, reading all about KNF and Hugelkultur, as well as listening to a myriad of podcasts devoted to the subject of organic gardening, I have committed myself to moving to organic no till soil for my indoor garden. (Also going to build Hugelkultur beds for my outdoor veggie garden for next year using the same soil recipe below.
I bought 2 bales of black gold peat moss, 60 lbs of locally sourced ewc, and 2 KIS organics amendment packs. I've got 10 25 gallon smart pots on the way (going to use 8 for my grow). I'm going to reuse the medium I've been growing hydroponically with for aeration after I rinse it really, really well to get rid of any excess salts. Or I may buy new and save myself the trouble of cleaning it. Still undecided.
I still would like to source some biochar locally if I can. Otherwise I'll buy a cubic foot of Black Owl and pay the ridiculous shipping fees.
I am building carts for the bags on casters to make them easier to move about the room next weekend. Going to add a bit of plastic sheeting to the bottom to create a pseudo run off tray on the cart. Once the carts are built, I'll make the soil and start cooking it. Probably take cuttings the following weekend so they'll be ready for the soil when it's ready to be used.
Also going to build a DIY tea brewer. I've got 3 air pumps that would be collecting a whole lot of dust otherwise that I can put to good use.
That is the plan so far.
