Ok, been here for 3 days and Already very impressed. I was using rollitup, let's just be nice and say antisocial activity is running amuck.
Thanks for the breath of fresh air.
But to the point. Northern lights auto. 3 plants 8 weeks old. Chased my yellow leaves down to root bound wet soil, my bad. I had them in 2.5 gallon pots that didn't drain very well.
I'm a little unconventional so I went with logic, everything in those pots was wrong as it's the first time mixing soil. What a mess. Manure, compost and not enough perlite.
I researched repotting them and as some of you know, it's not advised. So back to my own unconventional logic.
I love to experiment so leaving a lot of soil on the roots I removed the plants one by one and put them in 5 gallon bags, I had soils I mixed ready it was sitting in a closed plastic bin, I uncovered it whenever it rained, got lucky and it did a lot for AZ rain.
The mix , 30% perlite, 30% mushroom compost, and 30% peat. Amended with diatomaceous earth to keep the fungi knats out and any other arthropod btw.
So after a light root massage It's all back in the grow tent.
I hope all goes well. Being as it is taboo to transplant autos according to most growers. It was do or die in this case.

Anyone else ever try this? I love to know how it went for you.

Yes I did. It's hang drying now. It was harvested yesterday because I will use this one for pain management. The others that are the same crop are still fattening up tho, no worries. Thanks for the input.
