Everything else in in balance with micros included. I don't like to top-dress N at all after flower has begun. Liquids take over for the next couple weeks.

Led, Are you making a new mix for each container you run? No recycled soil for the Cannabis?

Is Germany on vacation this month?
everything is recycled..... say a yard for in... 1/4th scooped out back, 1/4th peat mix, 1/4th verm & or perl, rest blend of whatever & amendments... those amendments go out back, come back in, out back, back in..... it's the only thing that's really new aside from perlite & vermiculite - I have a peat mound that's now as much castings as peat and or compost that is my peat source...

Feb, June, Sept & Dec I guess are off in the old countries these days, even Deutsche - Ridic.... Amazon spoiled

When I bought the meter, those lame Germans were on "holiday" for weeks. Took forever to get the meter, and the dude selling it only sent one. I had bought SlowN one for his travels, but I guess in Germany, they have no desire to rush, or sell you your entire order. Sorry, great meter but super lame company.

Having a hard time finding my exact scope for you. However it's just a desktop model you would find in any highschool science class. It is 40 -1000x and it cost about 250$.

As for what I am hunting....... This might make slowN cringe......

I have a book that helps me identify bacteria, fungi, protozoa and nematodes. The book name is Adding Biology For Soil and Hydroponics Systems by Elaine R. Ingham, phd and Carole Ann Rollins, PH.d. I also bought the poster pictured below, and they even signed my book. Bought the book maybe as much as 10 years ago at a max yield hydro show in San Francisco. However the book teaches you to recognize beneficial aerobic microorganisms, and anaerobic microorganisms. It even helps identify mycorrhizal fungi under the scope.


This is why I have a hard time when people tell me I killed my micro heard. Cause I can literally scope it, and I can ID beneficial microorganisms. Same goes with High P kills micros. It may, but with my high Ca, highly aerated soil, I think higher P levels can be obtained without killing the micro heard. In fact, I have been scoping my soil this entire run, and my ppm's of P started out over 1000 ppm, and the soil dances like a Los Vegas night club.

Good old Elaine... as you are seeing, good fertilization has little to do with microbiology.

I would add that getting myco's into the root early is not so much for maximizing P uptake as it is to protect the root from bad microbiology.

You can grow peppers in the veg area. If you have a problem it shows up quickly. Plus it is easier to get tissue/sap analysis. You can mail the leaf

I am with led on that one 100%

That was a nice discussion, didn't see a lot of numbers on the feed mixes before.

What do you all reckon is 'balanced micro's? Is everyone's take the same?

I'll take a guess, for a well balanced soil, numbers per element not in sulfate or other form.

0.100% Si
0.100% Mn
0.080% Fe
0.030% Zn
0.010% Cu
0.006% B

and no idea about Al and Mo.

Would I be messing up?

End of week 4 flower. Funny that a few posts ago I mentioned keeping N low... That is what happens you put on a shit load of bone meal.

Sulfur 9000ppm seems high.

Has S measured at similar value in other tests?
