Motherearth Meal Mixes?

Discussion in 'Nutrients and Fertilizers' started by Funkadelic, Sep 14, 2018.

  1. Hey all - indoor coco grower here .I use Veg + Bloom and some Nectar for the Gods along with microbe supplements, EWC, perlite, biochar.

    Just found the Mother Earth Meal Mixes. There's a bloom I'm considering adding as a mix in .

    Yes my V+B, microbes should be enough ..but I'm very careful with salts and am a fan of dry amendments. I dont risk running my own combos since I've burned before, but I'm thinking of just following the directions and giving my pots a little extra food for the plants to uptake through flower .
    I found a thread on Growilla but nothing from people who have used M.E. brand. Thoughts?

  3. If it's something new added to an already good mix I would start light to see how they react. Maybe even test it out on one before hand. Don't fix what isn't broke

  5. My local shop just started carrying the Mother Earth soil. I can’t find the full ingredient list. They just state “meals” after the base ingredients.

    I am going soon to check the bag out. It seems odd that there is a large amount of ingredients but it is marketed as a controlled early fertilizing mix.

    I am hoping it is equal in elements to ocean forest with 25% added large perlite and doesn’t need perlite mixed in.

    Potter’s gold here was like that. Perfect really but then it got inconsistent. I have been using ocean forest ever since.

  6. i agree ocean forest is the go to for me also with the magic flower,i like to make my own mixes also,but i do plant a veggie in it first,best tell sign of a great mix is with tomato plants and squash,both get blossom end rot,this is like what we require in flower stage of the herb,if you can grow those 2 variety without end rot,you aced it and it will be a mix to carry you all the way through flower,im a mad fan of dry meals,fishbone meal,kelp,alfalfa,blood and bone are always in my pots,depending on size of container i use depends on oyster shell meal,under 3 gal i dont use the oyster shell meal
