I mix it into my soil and add it to my ACT.

about 1/4 -1/3 bag of frass per bag soil and about 1/4 cup per gallon water in my ewc = molasses ACT.

Thanks for the speedy response. I'm anxious to see what my outcome will be after using this stuff.

I would try topdressing with worm castings guano's and watering with ACT if the bottled nutes are too pricey for you.
Bio Buzz grow. Sounds good. Lime pellets too. The soil is slightly acid from chicken shit in the compost. Thanks.

Is it cool to spread straw for weed control or will that promote undesirables? A few more weeks and they'll be tall enough that it won't matter.

A 2" deep layer of plain un-colored cedar mulch will help with weeds, some kinds of bugs, mice and retain moisture for them to boot.

If you have slugs around, just pick up a copper scrubby at the grocery and pull the strands apart. I cut myself doing this... that shit is sharp haha.
You spread a half dozen strands around the bases of each plant and the slugs and snails won't cross it. Apparently it's like tasting a penny, only to them it's times a thousand so they just go away.

A much simpler more effective approach.

Go order a gallon of fish hydrolysate (Pacific Gro, Browns fish etc.). Pick up a bag of Calphos and a bag of gypsum.

Looks like you have a 4x4 area?

20 lbs of gypsum
140grams per square foot Calphos ~200 ppm

Work into top 6" around plants.

Apply 10 more lbs gypsum to surface.

Water in with 1oz fish per gallon of water, 1 gallon per sqft. A pinch of borax to the total mix also... this is a 60 ppm N 90 ppm P solution / sqft

Cover with 6" yard leaf waste.

August 1st add the rest of your gypsum. add 50 grams/sqft Calphos and water in with Fish @ 1oz/gal. This is ~70ppm P from the Calphos

~ Sept 1 Fish + 1 tbl molasses/gallon ~50ppm K from the molasses

Water in between feeds with compost tea, otherwise water as normal.

Thanks for the help. Eight plants came out of hydro in my veg tent, Two died so far. One just shriveled up for no apparent reason. The other victim was a real bushy one that got messed up by wind. It got blown over, then back and fourth. Sucks. I staked it up, but the damage was too much.

The remaining six are hearty. The biggest one is turning into a monster bush. I'll get some pics for an update when it stops raining.
