Nice grow! Plants look healthy and bountiful. I have been using hybrid model but I'm planning on ditching bottled nutes and going full organic next grow. Did you create your own soil or use something available?

Have you considered a plant bed in your tent vs the pots? I don't have enough space to fit one in my tent or I would. I feel like that is ideal living soil is when multiple plants are in the same bed.

Welcome to the Farm!

Thank you very much! I wish you luck with your new organic project. Organic grow it's just a one-way trip, there is no turning back.

I make my own soil:

- 50% COMPOST (Organic compost of vegetables, rabbit, horse and chicken manure)
- 20% WORM HUMUS
- 20% REUSED SUBSTRATE
- 5% BOKASHI
- 5% STONES SCRATCH (DOLOMITE ZEOLITE, AND MORE)

At the beginning of vegetation and flowering I usually make a solid amendment on top, "lasagna" style, with rock dust again, humus, compost, mushroom compost, alfalfa, bokashi, etc. And 2 te compost per cycle too.

The soil takes approximately 20 days to stabilize in terms of temperature. It really raises a lot of temperature due to the microactivity that exists, every day you have to remove the soil.

Here is a video of what i am talking about:

Welcome to the Farm!
Thanks!!! Yes, it would be better to have large beds, the bigger the better. Thanks to the rhizosphere that is formed, plants can transmit nutrients to each other, simply a beautiful symbiosis.

It is in my plans to soon build 2 beds of 200cm x 60cm x 40cm.

Thank you for taking your time to view my post, I appreciate it.

I do a living soil myself just no cover crop, I mulch and add bugs via great unscreened worm castings. Glad you came by the farm, we have some other living soil folks as well

Its nice to see more people doing livin soil, its the way to go, sustainable and regenerative soils.

Yes, I have used rice hulls as mulch, without cover crop and it also had good results. But I think I like the fact of having a "jungle" with a diversity of plants haha

Here is one example, was a "Lebron Haze" from BSF Seeds:

Awesome love seeing people use knf. Do you harvest IMO? That is about the only thing I don’t make. I’ve made lab fpj wsc wscap. Pretty cool you can make all this stuff with pretty much nothing.

I mostly read and learn about soil science on my own, I come on here more for community. Happy growing ✌

It is a before and after to make your own biofertilizers. Never harvest IMO, i dont have enough space and the area where I live right now is very arid, i just buy it. But yeah, i mostly use: FPJ, FFJ, FFA (COLD FISH FERMENT), soluble shell calcium, lactoferment, MEN, EM-5.

That is awesome I’ve never made ffa but I plan on it this summer. Once the tuna come back in hoping to make some out of the carcass. I do have two questions? What is men and me-5 and who do you get imo from?

MEN are efficient native microorganisms. I think thats is just a local way of calling it.
EM-5 it is a liquid with pest repellent, fungicide and biostimulant action that helps plant development.

I bought the IMO-5 locally, an Argentinian agronomist who makes organic and natural products, he makes it with wheat bran, walnut husks, tenebrio guano, rock dust, FPJ, liquid native efficient microorganisms, wsca, EM-5 , alfalfa flour and different types of soil (sandy, clay). Its just perfect.

Imo 5 should be 3 differnt imo 2 combined from my understanding. Most guys are using steamed brown rice to collect the imo1 then add brown sugar to get imo2. 3 would be 2 imo 2s combined 5 would be 3 imo2s combined.
