yeah if you're going bottled might as well use pbp with liquid karma and call it close enough

the water only plants I've been doing with biolive as a stand alone are looking good, the roots uprising plants I just transplanted and they're looking a little light on N so I'm thinking I might have to double the application rate, biolive errs on too much N and not enough K but it works if you don't pile it all on at once, the roots uprising bloom definitely has a more appealing NPK but unless this N issue is easily solved by adding more I would have to say biolive is the better stand alone

Hello everyone. I want to use lc's soiless mix 1 and for supplement recipe 1. But I cant find kelp meal and liquid karma. So maybe u can help me to change these what I can get.
I have to think as local farmers since I cant get the products as labeled brands.

instead of kelp meal I m thinking to use powdered seaweed extract which contains;(u can advice me diffrent material for me to use as long as its not a brand.I probably can find raw materials like alfalfa etc what can I add instead of seaweed for the source of potassium)
Organic materials:%30
Potasyum Oksit(K2O):%12
Alginic acid:%1,5
Gibberallic Acid:1 Mg/Kg
Ph 9-11
EC 34,8 dS/M


instead of liquid karma thinking to use bottled humic fulvic acids ? Not decieded on this yet. Any help would be appreciated.(or wormcastings teaa with molasses for every watering or 2nd.)

And instead of canadian sphangum peat gonna use coco peat should I change anything for cocopeat ? ;
Edit: It seems I cant get pure bone meal. I can get meat bone meal mixed . I think it has lower amount of P compared pure bone meal. Should I add anything to supplement P ?

powdered seaweed extract is supposed to be diluted into water and given as a foliar or a drench and not a part of your in-medium nutrition. i would try looking a little harder for kelp meal because it is one of those ingredients most people won't go without. i like to bubble it for a few days (or just soak for a week disturbing it whenever i remember), dilute it, and add in some silicon, fulvic, yucca extract and apply as a foliar.



liquid karma isn't a must, but i think a lot of people prefer floralicious plus over it.


fulvics are usually best used as foliar, so if you don't want to use it for that reason i would suggest using humics. if you want bottle humics or fulvics i would check out bioag's line of products.





as far as peat or coco, i would suggest coco over peat. coco does dry out a little faster than peat so you would want to lighten up the aeration component (perlite, lava rocks, etc.) by a little bit. also, coco doesn't NEED lime because it has a pretty good ph.

Thx for quick reply. I m looking for the materials in the recipe like for a week and there is no kelp meal around despite how much harder I try to find. So eventually there will be a need for replacing kelp meal for sure. For lime as much as I understand its not about ph buffering for us to use main reason to provide cal-mg. Actually I made organic grow before but used some bottled ferts from biobizz to supplement what plants need. This time I dont want to spend abnormal prices for the ferts like biobizz cause they are way overpriced where I live.

Hey everyone,
Nuitari, some other unlikely spots to look for kelp meal could be a health food shop because people eat it and a saddlery, as it is used to put in horses feed.
It’s also been found to reduce methane emissions in cattle (burps not farts).
Hope this helps,
Cheers,
40.

try researching dry molasses (local horse feed store?) or wood/plant ash. both are recommended by other members on here with a good reputation, but both products require a little studying to find out how to use (or make) properly.
