It has been awhile since I posted up a thread so I thought I would bust one out....here is an organic soil grow rockin almost to perfection...

I use Subby's soil mix almost to the letter, never questioned, just did and man o man, the results are stellar..

Mix used:
8 Bags Roots soil or equivalent high quality supped up grow soil
25 pounds Pure Worm Castings
½ cup Azomite trace minerals
2/3 Cup Sweet Lime IE Dolomite
1 Kilo Bone meal / IE 5 Pounds
1 Kilo Blood meal ( I use a bit more bone than Blood in this recipe)
1 Kilo Bat Guano bloom formula preferably Fruit bats
3/4 cup Epson Salts
Big and Chunky Perlite ¼ bag
Cocogro 1 5k bale

Plants that are mothers or seed stock:
Blueberry – (male and female) DJ Short
Kaya
Sweet 13 – (Sweet 13 x Blackberry Apocalypse)
Trainwreck – E32 Arcata cut
Orange Bud
Electric Avenue - (BCSC Big Blue x TRC Bordello)
Bubba Shine - (Bubba Kush x Blue Moonshine)
M39 - (Old School Sacred Seeds Basic #5 x Skunk #1)
Purple Paki – (SR71 Purple Kush x Pakistani landrace)
Bloody Mary - (Blood “Hawaiian sativa” x TRC Mary Jane)

Everything is veggin in 3 gallon pots and then transplanted into 5 gallon pots for flower. I start in 1 gallon pots and then up to the 3 and then into the 5 . I am about to do some 10 gallon pots in flower as well.

Lights in veg are T5's and 400w Mh and 1K HPS in flower
all stationary hoods, air cooled in veg and unberellas in flower

Yayuh! Even when growing is soil, TK does it big.

Hey TK, if you ever just HAPPEN to have some extra of those arcata cuts, and there just HAPPENS to be a big 'ole Texas twister coming through (not really, wouldn't wish that on ya!) feel free to toss a few cuts out the window. Maybe they'll make it my way. ;) Haha. Nice lineup homie.

I assume that's Roots Organics? I thought they only had two blends one being a soilless (mainly coco and perlite) geared for hydro with up to 4 feed cycles per day and the other a soilless with peat added that acted more like soil and you only need to water every few days due to better moisture retention. I've used both with great results. Not trying to be nit picky but for sure something like Ocean Forest and either Roots mix are not interchangeable. I know it's not your formula but any input?

That's bare concrete my brutha...lol..I pulled all the carpet and painted the floors a bit back and then I used net pots at first, nice and messy..

Roots makes a potting soil, a soiless, and 707 which is a hot mix soiless I believe...I used the potting soil version the first time..second time I used 1 bale of Sunshine #4 and 4 bags of roots organics soil...third time I used a bale of Happy Frog starter and 4 bags of Fertilome premium potting soil... all are rockin the same just a little difference in cost...

I do not feed any nutes at all, only plain ph adjusted water and a few foliar recipes I use throughout..

I def hear that. I don't even wanna think about all the holes i'll have to patch, all the drywall i'll have to replace. And the worst part of all, i have no clue how the breaker panel was before i moved here. Why did i add 3 more 220V circuits? Why did i run 4 more 120V circuits to one little bedroom?
Maybe i'll say i was running a bunch of HEPA filters, freaking out about the swine flu. Haha. No, don't think that'll work...

Ease of maintanence for sure, this is idiot proof plus I can spend the night away or two on the weekend...no such luck with hydro..

You can also had plants off to patients to grow, another impossiblity in hydro...

Nute expense went to $0, except for some ph down...I spend it all on the front end time and money early then your set..
