Just met a grower chick that is gonna be hooking me up with some homemade vermicastings that she does. I can't wait to try that out, plus the best kind of vermicastings are free vermicastings. I find the G.O. nutes are a bit on the weak side, my heavy feeding Headband just inhales it faster than I can feed em.
I must say I am very pleased with my first indoor organic soil grow ATM and can't wait to test out the finished product. The whole soil food web is my kind of thing and just feels right to me. I see myself growing Organic soil for while. I plan on switching to amended soil soon and just reuse and re amend as needed. Who knows, we will see.
Very cool man! General Organics is some good stuff! Can you use EWC to make up for the high levels of N the headband consumes?
Yea, I'm with you on the organics thing. It sure is fascinating! However, I'm new to coco at the moment. You should look up a guy on some other canna-boards that calls himself "Pigfarmer". He is vegging in coco for 60-90 days, up to 3 gal pot sizes. He feeds House and Garden Cocos A&B. For blooming, he takes his 3 gallon coco root ball and drops it into a 7 gallon pot of ogranic soil (amended Sunshine mix), and feeds House & Garden Bio-1 Soil, which is an organic line, pulling some great yields thanks to his massive coco root ball!
