Hello My Grow Friends,
I have been gone for a while. I have checked in on ya from time to time and appreciated the stream of love ya’ll have sent my way.
Life has mellowed out for a minute so I am starting another grow. Actually it will morph into 2 grows.
Part 1 - Doing another run in 5 gal fabric pots with Promix HP and Jacks 321, folvic acid and a little silica under my LED lights. I bought a 5 pack of Auto Fem Gorilla Glue from Grower’s Choice.
I only had 3 of 5 germinate! So I emailed GC and they apologized and gave me a credit on their site far greater than 2 seeds worth. That is good customer service so I am good with GC and looking forward to my first run of Gorilla Glue.
When this run is done I am moving my grow space.
Part 2 – Spent some studying living-soil, “Coot’s mix”, vermiculture, this and that, yadda-yadda and the rest until I came down with serious case of Analysis Paralysis.
BUT I haven’t given up on living soil. I am going to copy some of what Stealth Grows does with Dr Earth on his YouTube channel. I popped 6 of Preybird’s beans (3 Runtz and 3 Monkey Slapz) a week ago will transplant next week. These are Fem Photos so I didn’t start them in their final pots.
PreyBird’s beans freaking jumped out of their skins! I soak my seeds for a day before the paper towel in a Zip Lock treatment. 4 of 6 seeds started to sprout in less than 12 hours and all 6 are doing very well. I germinated them the same as the Grower’s Choice seeds so I don’t think the issue was with me.
These organic pots will get hardened and moved outside as soon as it stops freezing every night. They won’t survive outside here long enough to flower to perfection. So I’ll move them back indoors to finish.
I am giving up my garage grow room and will take over the my old chicken house as a grow room. The chicken coop is a bit smaller (40” wide, 8’ 4” long and 6’ 8” tall) than the current room (50”x 8’ x 8’) but I’ll make it work. Wish I had a long skinny light instead of a square one.
Anyway, I’ll post some pictures soon.
Happy to have plants growing again!
