I have ten Auto Zamaldelica seeds on the way
I see thereís no thread for them and I know others are growing them out too so I figured what the hell... why not start a thread.
I donít have seeds to start just yet but Iíll post pics of the greenhouse Iím building out of the skeleton of a shed. Iíll be installing a wood stove and 3 or 4 soil beds about 4x7 feet.
I cleared out some trees today to open up the sunshine but thereís a good 7+ hours direct sun/day and itís bright through the canopy even when trees block the sun a bit.
If they get here next week or two I can prolly have them going strong through solstice putting on size and then they should initiate flower around July or so... fall hangs on till September October lately so with the stove at night and lovely August sun during the day I think I oughta get some decent buds.
I have well composted horse manure, also leaf/lawn litter compost thatís almost like peat and a really rich kitchen/garden/lawn compost pile started two years ago.. Iíll be using those and some willow/spruce chippings to mix with local clays and rock dusts then mix that into excess living soil from indoors to create my soil.
Iíll ďactivateĒ the biology ASAP with fish hydrolysate, lacto B. , molasses and Yarrow extract and bloomed yeast cultures in alternate waterings.
Cover crop will be mostly Brome and some chamomile and other flowers thrown in for good measure.
At onset of flower I plan on feeding fish hydrolysate and a bit of bonemeal topped with a little Epsom solution and a topdress of canna waste light dust of wood ash and field greens like Yarrow, dandelion, broad leaf plantain and/or fireweed. Then Iíll mulch that with leaf litter and straw/hay if its not already deep enough with greens.
After stretch I will give a very light top-dress of Bat guano and wood ashes.
Plants will be watered at PH 6.5-6.8 with fulvic, B vitamins and molasses every three waterings or so as well as possibly Aloe and coconut a couple times too.
Anyhoo thatís my plan. Letís see everybody elseís too! I bet someone already has some of these vegging so whoever you might be please post up and show off!
