Check out a book called
True Living Organics(TLO)
If you want to grow all natural in dirt without using liquid nutrients that cost a fortune try growing using the TLO style. I’ve invested a bit into dry products but they can be recycled and used over and over again. Simply water with water only! And that is it, no messing with PH

There’s a couple of other threads I’ve seen on living soils. You should check them out.

I’ll look the book up. Thanks for the tip :slight_smile:

Is the miracle grow soil also a living soil?

Negative, it is not 100% organic, also I used a few nutrients at the beginning that I thought were all natural but actually were not so if your gonna go the 100% all natural route make sure you understand that just because it looks all natural it’s probably not. I always read the ingredients now and look up a lot of stuff on google before I try anything new. I don’t want any chemicals in my medicine!

I’m too knew too growing to decide to go all natural. I’m just trying to learn as much as I can from all the experienced growers here. :smiley:

Best advice anyone every told me is that there is plenty of nutrients in the dirt to grow a plant from start to finish! You just have to have quality soil, and water. If you just want to go as simple as possible then I would just buy miracle grow and just water when needed, I bet they would grow just fine. Try it out some time, do a side by side comparison

Nice grow, welcome. I am new here also. Your plants looks very healthy and trained well.

I will do so, but in the future. Now I’ve a fine stockpile of nutes to use. I’ll search for the miracle grow when I begin to run out of them, instead of buying more. I am really curious.

Very nice inthewoods,
A great example not to over and force feed by shooving chemicals down your plants throat.
Read the plants and give them what they need.
I don’t pH the water either because it does nothing except consume my time.
The medium in this case controls the pH.
Chemicals will build up in the medium and act as lime and drive the pH up over time and lockout super important micros like mang, mag, iron, and decrease uptake N P.
A compost tea can really get these going.
Finish well.
