New experimental round

Sorry for the late response.

Do you think that mixture contains both of complete macro and micro :arrow_down:.

Graph bringing forward the levels of pH per element

Soil PH is super important. If its off even a little bit. You will and I promise at some point problems will arise. Most growers tend to overreact when they see a issue. Never once thinking about the.growing media PH levels. This also translates to all media pH levels. Hydro is different then soil. However the outcome is always the same.

I really appreciated your support by that information. I’ll read that once l get up.

Please stop worrying about the late replies, nobody here is in a hurry! First thing we have to learn is patience :wink:

For now, it should not matter too much. The important thing is that the potting mix is made specially for growing vegetation, and that’s what you want. A good fertile soil. I have been told by somebody I respect a lot that NPK rules. As long as you have enough of those, you should be okay.

That dirt you have looks more like barren rocky desert soil than good living forest earth…
Have you seen anything grown in it? How does it retains moisture? Personnally I would not use it and use only potting mix.
If you really have to use your soil, make sure to follow @MK3_Pharms advice for PH.

When you are done brewing your coffee, mix in the remaining coffee grind in your soil.
Same advice for PH though.

If you’re looking for natural supplement for your plants look up @Ladithief tea recipes.

Use what you have and what you can source. Imo, anything would be beneficial for that “dirt/soil”.

There are a few golden rules to growing cannabis.

  1. Patience
  2. Genetics (good genes are good, bad are of course bad)
  3. Lighting
  4. NPK
  5. Micro and Macro
  6. Air flow
  7. Water

Those are the main things to focus on. NPK is king. Follow that and you won’t have issues.
Be preventative in every aspect of growing. Don’t wait till you have a problem to fix it.
Don’t try to reinvent how to grow. The ground work is already done, just follow the path.

Thank you and to tell you the truth, I am not doing anything, just pitching ideas and trying to get the discussion going here. You are the one doing the work! I am also really happy for the people here helping me. I am far from the best grower here, but I try to do my bit to help and give back to this wonderful community.

Alright, I’ll.

Yes, that seedling being under experiment which I intended it to test that kind of media on plant growth, and on how is the media’s compression strength will be on the roots, if is it could stand with it or not during the seedling stage, and without any kind of additives like nutrients or adjustment for the pH’s range. But I covered that stony media surface by nearly quarter tablespoon from that potting soil which I currently have exactly has been putted on above it, before it’s emerged up to let it push its self a little bit up as a power before its real job test for the media, as I imagined.

The germination date was in November 26, 2019, and the sprout date being in December 6, 2019.

Yes, that what you could see and notice on it growth so far, in pictures below,

Susceptible by drought, which took my attention to I keep mentoring it a lot.

You should try to take off the shell and membrane buddy… Sometimes you need to help it little bit… I just helped this one a few hours ago you can see shell and the membrane that was keeping cotyladons together. I use tweezers

Fantastic, I’ll do that when it’s wake up.

That’s more of a veg cycle buddy in my opinion … Until they show 2nd set of leaves I do 24 hours straight with humidity domes… Then maybe a 20 on 4 hour off… I’m not a pro like most of these guys but I’m learning real quick

The temperature’s & the humidity’s results on the current environmental zone for the seedlings, that the thermometer & hygrometer has given during the light & dark cycles now.

83.6° Fahrenheit
76% Humidity MAX

73.6° Fahrenheit
48 % Humidity MIN

Because the A/C’s running times and it’s breaks that I prepared for it, plus the A/C’s compressor automatic breaks, which are kind of waving and not stable in the temperature’s & the humidity’s increase & decrease.
