Overfeeding in organic living soil

Hi guys,

Currently I'm doing my first organic run in living soil with the Biobizz nutrient line and added batguano's, bacto's, funghi and several other amendments. Previously I grew chem for years in coco.
Everything is fine for the moment and the plant is doing excellent.

But I do need your experience/opinion about overfeeding with organics.

I understand the soil food web and how it works. I have the books True Living Organics by the Rev and The teaming with series.

What I personally understand is that it's nearly impossible to overfeed in Living Soil. You don't feed the plant directly but rather the living organisms in the soil which in turn feed the plant.
What I belief so far is that any organic fertilizer that was added to much will be buffered in the soil and left there as reserve for the soil life.

What's your opinion/experience? Have you ever burned your plant as you would see with chem nutes?

Thanks.

Yes you can overdo it with the organic ferts but it is harder to do. Some plant types (Sativa) are more sensitive to ferts, but Indica will take more food and love it.

I've used biobizz and I doubt you'll burn your plants with it but you might be using more ferts than you need.
I've not seen any signs of burning with Biobizz or GO's line.
when I used those ferts all the way through a run I would dump the soil in my garden and start with more Happy frog the next run.

now I'm using Coot's style soil and feeding ACT every watering and I get similar quality but reuse the mixture.

organic feed in ionic form makes your grow transitional which is a fine method but counter intuitive to los methodology and makes for a ton of over kill at a minimum in this scenario

Cannabis is a hyper/dynamic accumulator.

The organic method relies on the "passive ionic uptake" pathway for nutrient absorption. Cannabis enjoys additional pathways of uptake, which tend to draw in unwanted and unconvertible elements. These actions makes it a great plant for "phytoremediation" which is the process of using plants to pull toxins out of soil.

These unwanted and completely un-necessary elements absorbed by cannabis will not flush or fade out. Period. They are fixed to new plant tissue and will be present at harvest day and beyond.

Your goal is to provide a nutrient availability which does not exceed what the plant needs. Cannabis can and will absorb what it doesn't need, so keep it out of the root zone.

Dude...you need to do some tissue testing before you spout this shit. You are not even close to correct...lotta big words that don’t mean shit though, I give you that

Plenty of tissue tests in phytoremediation studies. Does cannabis uptake and retain heavy metals it has no need for? Yep. Does cannabis uptake and retain elements it has no need for? Yep. Cannabis is a hog, and in my experience it's best to severely limit what's available in the root zone. It creates significantly higher quality. Have you educated yourself on what a hyper/dynamic accumulator plant is? Might want to do that first. I know this is a very hot topic for some, it's old and boring for me though.

Stonier Jump is on a distinguished road
If cannabis is a hog why would I want to severely limit what is in the root zone? Wouldn't adequate amounts of the proper elements feed this hog better and get her fatter?
