So, I got home from a small vacation in June to 8 dead plants and another one that was dying. So, being summer and all, I decided to do another organic run. I am using NV's super soil which i am supplementing with teas. I love working with dirt and it is so much easier in the summer when it can be hard to keep res temps in check.

This started in mid June when I germed a bunch of seeds. Here they are about a week or so old.

Then a couple of weeks later, the end of June, I started some Satori and Master Kush. Here they are July 15--4 Satori and 3 Master Kush.

The next 3 pics are of the vegging plants taken the 22nd--6 Nurse Larry, 3 Sweet Tooth, 4 Satori, 3 Master Kush, I Blue Lights clone, 3 little God's OG Kush (one of which died, having trouble with this strain). Not in that order.

I had moved the 4 Beyond the Brain and 3 C99 to the flowering room while they were still small and unsexed because there was little in the flowering room and a lot vegging. They sexed this week and I ended up with 1 BTB and 2 C99.

I am still an organic newbie so feel free to offer any suggestions and advise. These will be in 3 gal pots. I can buy some 5 gal pots if others think it is advisable, but would like to keep them in the 3 gal if I can.

morning thg---you asking for advice is like the student teaching the teacher lol---as you very well know size always matters---if your space allows you to run 5 gal pots than you should---roots need space---more roots = bigger plants---love seeing you in the dirt :aok:

Thanks Shortbus--there are so many acronyms now.

The one I use most is one Ozzy posted up.

5 gal water
5T Molasses
5T Epsom Salts
5T Blood Meal
5T Bone Meal
1 c Compost
2 c Worm Castings

Aerate for 48 hours and strain. Mix 50/50 for watering and 25/75 for foliar spray.

I think that I am going to make a 5 gal tea maker with a spout. I have looked at several commercial ones for ideas. I haven't made a lot of teas, how much aeration do I really need?

I just use a 10 gallon fish tank pump...It just needs to keep the liquid moving...I also like to use paint strainers so no need to strain....I think you did too..I thought ...now get some dirt under those nails:D

4U--thanks. I have used an aquarium air pump in the past. Some of the commericial ones are using quite large pumps for the teas. I just wondered if more bubbles were better. I would rather use a smaller pump.

Hi Ruffy. Last summer I ran organics, too. Even though I mixed the super soil right, I decided that the plants needed some supplementary teas. I'll keep working on it though.

DGF, glad to have you.

When I search the Forum for "NV's super soil" there are no matches. "Super soil" finds over 300 threads. Somewhere a while back I read a thread about soil mixes but cannot recall which message it was or find it again. I've got a pretty good mix right now but would enjoy knowing the ingredients of yours if not too much trouble.

I will see if I can find the super soil recipe. I know it is here somewhere.

I made some worm tea and will give the kids some today. I am really happy with the SNS 209--a pest preventative. I get spider mites a lot in the summer, but haven't seen any yet (knock on wood). I will continue to use the SNS 209

The 2 Cindies and the Beyond the Brain were stretching real bad. It can't be lack of light as they kept growing up to the glass. So I supercropped them. Two of 3 Sweet Tooth are boys and were pulled out this morning. The other hasn't shown, so hope it is a girl. Four Nurse Larry and a Master Kush, all unsexed went into 12/12 today.

This leaves 4 Satori, a Blue Lights clone, and 2 God's OG Kush vegging in the tent. There are 2 Master Kush and 2 Nurse Larry in the vegging closet.

I hope to wind up with about 10 in 12/12 after sexing. They are smaller and I don't think I will have trouble with 10 in my space. I do like dirt.
