Hello fellow growers! Ok so Im currently in India, and gona be here for a while... I have 2 blueberry strain seeds for indoor, and some bag seeds for outdoor! I have germinated and planted the bag seed in soil that I got from a nursery in the area. Iv put them outside to see how they do!

WHAT I HAVE:-
All I kno is da soil consists of cow manure, clay pot pieces, and dirt(possibly part red dirt) with other stuff in it.. its a bit sticky wen watered, and it seems to hold water maybe too well... I have a dirt looking type organic fertiliser that says(N 1.8%min, P 2.0%min, K 1.4%min)?
My Indoor grow space is 2ft 4in Deep X 21in Tall X 18in Wide; Iv got 8 proper 23 watt cfl's for Veg and 8 for Flower; Gona get a pretty strong PC fan(maybe 2); Mylar party balloons; and an Oscillating fan!


I NEED HELP WITH:-
(1) Using the rite soil proportions?(Manure/Unkwn soil/Clay pot particles)
(2) A way to feed my plants or how to use the fertiliser I have?(no liquid ferts available, but will chek again)
(3) Pesticides I can pour into the soil, or wuteva I can possibly make?
(4) Cheap way to bring humidity down?


I will GREATLY appreciate any help from u guys! Ill try post pics of my progress as well! Mahaloz!

I wouldn't- especially if it FRESH.. I beleive it needs to be broken down after time.. Go to a home depot if you have one near you and get something without any time released nutes in it.. Organic or better yet If you can afford it.. Fox farms have some good blends. Fox farm ocean forest.. happy frog light warrior ect like 20 a bag.. BIG bag.. Hero

I dont understand the other two pics! BUT THAT SOIL IS TERRIBLE you will NEVER get anything out of that CRAP,,,,Compost, compost and more compost and lots of Perlite. IF you USE MENURE only about 15% and you should Never need any more nutes than that! Menure=Nutes Good Luck just my OPINION!

Welcome, but please read the site rules. I have edited your post to remove the live links. We ask that all pics be posted directly here. There are inherent dangers with posting grow pics on a site like Photobucket.

I would encourage you to do some reading. Start with the Resource section and then read any Stickies that apply to the way you want to grow.There are some good soil mixture recipes in some of the Stickies.

You do not want to use any kind of pesticide that you pour into the soil. There is no cheap way to lower humidity.

If you can order online there are numerous places to find good soil as well as other growing nesecsitys.. HTG supply is one of them I know of off hand.. Also try any kind of nurserys that they have near you.. You want a good draining soil that does not hold water, What I saw in that first pic looks like water would sit in it.. Good grow medium is essantial if you want healty plants. as well as light. PHed water ect.. Keep reading. asking questions.. ect and good luck.. Hero

Remember peeps he's in India. He prolly won't have the same resources as us.
Greensand is great to use in soil that is hard to grow in ;) take a while to break down, but is used commercially to use with High Clay content in soil. ;)
They have actually used greensand in a high clay/sand zero top soil enviro and made it viable. Pretty neat stuff ;)

With what you have available I would look around and find some bagged top soil and a bag of perlite. Mix those together with some powder limestone to balance out PH. Top dress with the manure compost.

You won't get spectacular results like some of us on here...but you will have some good bud :) It is a weed after all. Guanos, and bone/blood meal if you can get it, but unlikely being in India.

Watch you butt tho...they ain't friendly about cultivation in that part of the world.

hero4u2b- Yea dude I wish I cud get stuff from htg, but shipping to here is daamn high.. so Ima rely on wuteva I can get here.

Mutt- Thanks man! ill look into that greensand.. but Im gona look today for packeted soil and perlite! also bone meal n stuff... I read sumwer that u can put playground sand over the top layer of soil, spread neem oil over it, and put insect tape around to keep gnats out? That works!
Also, im using filtered or bottled water for watering.. how will this impact the PH? any cheap way to detect it? Thanks again!

I've visited India and I doubt you can rely on the information from western growers "except" organic growers, only because most people are using brand names which you won't find there. It is all the same stuff found around the world packaged nicely and conveniently. My suggestion would be to search out an area near you with lush vegetation and grab up some of that dirt. It would have the EM you need. I might not be giving the greatest advise but, you don't have alot of options. GOOD LUCK

You're prob gonna have to roll yer own AFA soil goes.

See if you can locate Peat Moss. HD usually has it, but since 90% of it comes from Canada ...........

Perlite, again, HD, but locating the 4cf bags is the best bet.

Coco Coir, never used it, but it comes from your neck of the woods. Made from coconut husks. Prob be able to locate this the easiest.

Blood meal
Bone meal
Kelp meal, or some sort of seaweed
Greensand
Vegan meals, like Alfalfa meal, soybean meal, cottonseed meal, neem meal. I'm sure there are some sort of meals from whatever is grown in great amounts over there. Have to do your own research on this.

If you can't find perlite, rice hulls or pumice will work fine.

See if you can find any organic gardening forums or the like that are based in India.
