What

I'm intrigued, what is liquid mychos? I haven't heard the term yet.
It is an innoculant with Mychos in it is what I was told. After looking into it (before using on my plants), it a microbial chelator. Basically breaks down things the plant needs in the soil so the plant can use them easier, I think this is common to all myhos. I just liked that I can just add it to my water rather than a dry compound like my other mychos. Here is the link for the type I mentioned.


My local Grow Monster store sells it.

Growing in 50% Coco, 25% happy frog, And 25% ocean forest. I'm showing early signs of deficiency right after transplant... Chalk it up to transplant shock, it's a mildly hot soil right meow. Was wondering if anyone grows through flower this mix and how do/ or do you amend it... Plants look a little heavy in the N right now but might be a pH thing. Does the happy frog/ ocean forest mix have an unusual pH? Know the ocean forest liked to be low 7's
Can I ask you a stupid question? What is the reason/purpose for the soil make up?
Coco has no nutrient value
Happy Frog is designed to only provide a few weeks of nutrition to the plant
Ocean Forest is designed to provide continued nutrients thru the lift of the plant.

So what is the purpose of mixing these 3 different products?

Basically I didn't have perlite, Coco has a good drainage. I had all 3 at hand and wanted to grow again... So far it's worked, had lockout for a minute but she is turning around. Just trying to see what works for me, 1000 ways to skin this cat just trying my options I suppose.. have a few beans all 1 type soil, few beans mixed soil, and gonna run an amended Coco here soon just to see if maybe there is a better way. I'm learning and testing!

Quick update

In the 2x4:
3rd times the charm, 3rd "vegette" is coming in all female!!! Dang mama!! Added a co2 emitter, all it can do is help right? Buds still stacking fat, looks like she is gonna keep producing. Definitely a reduction in yellowing from lockout but we'll see... 4 weeks is a long enough time.

In the 2x2:

With the addition of CFLs we now have 3 leaf visible and 5 leaf popping up!!!

Got an amended Coco grow starting after Sunday... That's the day I drop the old lady off and get more than 15 minutes without a "hey Baaaaaabe" as I exit the room.. it's venting not bitching... I love her to death!

2x2 getting full
Samoa kush and super silver glue popped
Soil & bottle fed left, amended Coco organic under h.o. 24w t5 right
Trying to find my niche, trial and error
2nd grow going better than the first, 3 weeks anticipation to harvest on the main lady but time will tell. Stacking fat from the first flower season, we'll see what she does! I sure like her though!

Quick update, rolling into week 7 of flower! Getting closer! She's looking good, they are silver dollar sized or bigger on the mains. Curious to see what she weighs in at dried! The "perpetual" grow is looking good. Moved the cob up to push a little stretch, so far so good! Got 2 of the amended Coco seeds popping up, 1 Samoa kush and 1 super silver glue, seems like I get some good luck then some bad luck going from regular seeds... Sure like the process though, and offers a chance to dabble with pheno hunting and breeding if the space becomes available

Seeing as I haven't quite dialed in perpetual I had to hit a dispensary, bought an 8th riddled with seeds. For a pollinated/ herm plant it still smokes pretty good for a daytime. Might as well see if they grow right? Got 3 out of the last 8th I got last week too. Don't know squat about lemon cake or sugar kiss but shit what's a few extra minutes a day to find out. 4 strains means options right?

Rolling on a week for this update, didn't seem like much was happening but I suppose a couple pictures help. Got a week left in the flower tent, strict H2O diet at a steady 6.5-6.8 pH. Getting close and I am getting anxious, still got to cure it though... Ah well, getting closer! Veg tent showing some growth, got 2 of 4 amended Coco beans sprouting, put Coco pots in 1 gallon pots early hoping to prolong moisture in medium a little. Hopefully I won't run into watering issues but I suppose that's why it's a learning curve. 1 super silver glue and 1 Samoa kush for this run, hoping for ladies!!! 4 super silver glue in happy frog/ ocean forest mix doing good, too early to sex just yet. They really seem to take to the cfl addition to the cheap c.o.b., in confluence it's harmonious enough to ease my mind a little. all in all I'm content for right now, got more going on than available time/space!

So I cut em short... Survived two flowers so far and still not a full 9 weeks on this strain... Space is something you shouldn't take for granted... you can fill it quick and have to make some calls you weren't ready for to complete the bigger picture, perpetual! it's a learning curve! Cut a week off harvest to get some other plants vegging. We'll see what they do. Transplanted some super silver glue plants from a 1 gallon they were about root bound in to 3 gallon cali-pots sitting under the viparspectra 600w dimmed to 75% veg 25% bloom and 2 Coco seeds, 1 Samoa kush and 1 super silver glue, plus 2 other maybes... The maybes are an all Coco filler with a jiffy pot seed starter in a 1l water bottle Wick system converted soil and a seed I didn't think would take and is fighting through in ocean forest.. don't have the heart to tell em no.. grow little lads, grow! Here's some pics from today, will properly locate the next logs in the forum. See and read some good stuff on this forum, looking forward to more. Going on run 3 and we'll see what it brings! Hoping to come into some space soon, hopefully expand a bit. Until then we are making due!

P.s. will give an update of total weight dried after curing, currently drying in a 2x2x4 tent, got a few weeks then go but we're on the final stretch!
