Honestly this will be my first run that I’m focusing so much on efficiency, it’s definitely the way to go if your looking to set up a commercial grow. investor’s want to see solid numbers that way

@hoppiefrog, are you going to make your own earthworm castings? I have some worm bins going and it is very efficient. It would save you quite a bit on castings.

Nice. The expensive bins are nice, but the truth is the diy bins work just as well. They will eat what you put in there and crap out the black gold. They also multiply like crazy so you will have a multitude very quickly. Happy Vermicomposting and Happy Growing.

When you say sterilize, you mean really sterilized? Whats the cleaner you use? I am going to be sterilizing my room in a month.

Starsan to wipe things down and mop and preferably prokure g for equipment. I had to use sulphur for time sake, so I overkilled it to be safe

Costs of running a bio fert program drove me to run living soil. I previously used pro mix

gosh… there are so many things i like about living soils… but so many things i like about straight hydro… i feel its natural for any grower who really loves plants, to want to head toward living soils. to be honest I want to try it in a greenhouse typa deal. and getting it right… before bringing it indoor. but the growth on hydroponics is hard to deviate from… so many things i want to do… so little money :dollar:

I have a friend that is pulling 1.5 lb a 315 cmh. That’s good numbers for even hydro but much friendlier buzz and smoking experience I have found. I’m hoping I can pull similar numbers on my first run. Do you have your soil tested to re amend?

I use rockwool cubes and slabs. to be honest, ive never stopped to think about getting rockwool tested… dont they even do that… it would be cool to know whats going on in there.

Lol I said “soil test” it’s pretty common to test living soil between crops to amend the soil correctly
