I really hope the rest of my grow goes better than the start. First problem i ran into is my health simply wouldn't allow me to dig a 4' x 4' x 2' deep bed to fill with soil mix so I had to change to containers. Now the Mephisto's will be planted in ~5gal fabric pots that I made by removing the cardboard from some fabric storage containers I found at Dollar General for $3 each. I could have ordered fabric pots for less but I'm trying to stick to only using materials from local stores that should be found in any major city, in order to help those who can't order online. These are the containers I found:
Planters will be filled 1/2 with composted super soil and 1/2 with non amended soil.
My standard soil is(everything was found at home depot):
1.5 cu ft Kellog Organic Plus
6lb's (1bag) Worm Castings
4 quarts perlite
To make super soil i add the following to my standard soil:
1 1/4 cup Dr. Earth 2-2-2 all purpose organic fert + myco I recommend Dr. Earth Flower Girl 3-9-2 if you can find it.
~ 8quarts 0.25 cu ft of organic compost (whatever kind you can find)
The nutrients I'll be using during veg ( only if needed)
Alaska Naturals Grow, Bloom, Micro, CalMag from Walmart
and of course SuperThrive 1drop per gallon in early Veg
Water will be Spring water from wal-mart(IMO the minerals in spring water help to buffer ph better than RO or Distilled water when using organics. ESPECIALLY if your growing Hydro-Organic)
Seeds will be starting their 12hr soak in spring water + superthrive tonight and will be planted once they crack. Man It kills me not being able to use Liquid Karma or any other liquid kelp. LK + CalMag is all i ever used for years during Veg.
thanks for everyone following along.
