    Thanks, love the garden, this is my last "epic grow" as they are changing the laws next year. It is a lot of work and hot work, but heck yes, it is the best ever!

    I've got cool garden outdoor kinda big but wont have no monster plants or anything. Next year I'm planning on Getting 3-6 yards of soil for 12-18 plants and running most of the bottles of NFTG, Bigfoot, SLF-100, Extreme Mycos and Azos, not sure about how much or how often I want to apply, and making ewc, humisoil & molasses tea. Also using bioag fulpower. Bioactive foliars and Guardian for pests.

    Well, glp, this is the deal, I suck at feeding plants. I have my best luck making my soil from my spent ffof soils I have used over the years, plus lots of amendments. I usually try to use a recipe and not just throw stuff in my own soil. I have used the recipes that we have here on our site for making your own soil. During veg I use EWC as a top dress indoors or as a tea outdoors. When flowering starts I use 0-12-0 Peruvian sea bird guano. I use that as a tea or else I top dress with that as well.

    So..I see I just told you how I grow outdoors and you ask about indoors. I have Earth JUice nutes that I use indoors, but I prefer what I just outlined for you on my outdoor grow.

    So I like to feed the soil with top dressings that break down slowly. Worm castings and guanos. That feels better to me than adding an ounce of some liquid.

    I got the kashi at my grow shop, because it made since to me. Like farmers planting a cover crop of clover to add N back to the soil. I have used it a few times so far outdoors.

    I would love to be able to help you with your do garden next year. It would be fun to get it ready this fall for your next spring grow. If you want my input I would love to help. I did a rose garden the right way once and it is fun.

    Googled it, interesting concept. Kashi Go Lean is a breakfast cereal. Global buckets looks interesting also.

    It's pretty cool looking and looks like nice way to garden. Does it come out being expensive orbis it pretty cheap?

    The global buckets interested me the most. I am going to try at least 2 or 3 plants in global buckets. Organic gardening combined with the convenience of hydro....how can I resist something like that? I have buckets, PVC and all the tools needed to make this. I have peat moss, coco coir, dolomite, azomite, perlite, compost. I ordered some Gro-Kashi and cocoa shells are available from Amazon. They indicated that it can take 3 weeks or so to get the Gro-Kashi, so I have plenty of time to get buckets ready. I just planted some seeds and this looks to be a great experiment.

    Plasma, you are planning that big outdoor grow next year--you could make some variation of earth boxes, using the reservoirs like zem uses.

    I didn't get this concept when I read it--that seems more like a drip system to me with a main central res. The global buckets are a double bucket system with no pumps of any kind--a wicking system. I do wonder about anaerobic hydro, though. I may have to have something to aerate the water....
