Excellent! Once you've built a nice soil mix you can reuse it for harvest after harvest!
I don’t wana grow it that much bigger.
I want it to be short n stealthy since I’m growing it n my balcony.My question is Wll transplanting it to a mid size pot like this gives a limited growth !!!
Have you considered growing in a rectangular plastic tote and having a screen over it?
That would allow you the root space needed for good flower production and help you control the height/profile.
I wouldn't recommend pot size limitation as a means of height control, this is not ideal.
Finnaly got perlite ... but looks a bit grey in colour ... it’s half Kg pack ... what shud be the mixing ratio with coco and vermicompost?
1:1:1 is probs not far off mate but @Sunshine is the best person to tell you
Good work getting the perlite, it will pay itself back for sure!
@BudMonster's suggestion is spot on go for 1/1/1 or mix 50/50 coco and worm compost and then add 25% of the total mix as perlite.
If you can find good sized pots next that would be excellent, sometimes big 5gal/20litre plastic tubs can be found round the back of restaurants in/near the bins, these are ideal and free!
Getting 20gal pot won’t be an issue .... But huge pots wll give more root space which will inventively end up growing a sativa tree In ma balcony ... since landrace sativa start to flower n late December and wll take feb end to harvest... Only gorilla grow is possible for long term landrace growing .
Got Neem cake powder and ordered bone meal as well. What else shud I get in de soil to make organic grow ?
Seewee extract !!!
Fish, blood and bone meal is very useful and covers most of the bases!
Mycorrhizal fungi is probably one of the best things you can add to your soil mix to give you an organic boost.
Vermiculite is another great amendment for your soil mix and can be added at 1/2 the rate of perlite and helps improve soil structure.
Can I order these three ?
Seaweed extract looks good.
For your mycorrhizae this looks better
This looks like good fish and bone
I couldn't find fish blood and bone for a reasonable price, it's 10x the price.
Ideally with organic growing we make a good soil mix which has the fertiliser mixed in, then only really add water until harvest taking the guess work out of feeding as the plant can feed itself.
Good luck, you're on the right track @southindiansativa
hi, mr indian guy.
the only problem with you wich i see are as follows.
1: stop asking questions and make 33℅ perlite/coco peat 33 percent soil 33 percent wormicompost mix.
2: u said u chopped off a huge plant because it was in balcony. so what do u thing this bag seeds would be? they will be same tall plants so why growing again? logic?
3: order auto, as sushine said dnt be pickey or choosey for strains. just pick wich ever auto strain u can get and start.
u wont need any nutients except sea weed. if u do the mix as i said.
focus ur energy in getting good auto seed and making good soil. thses all produxts u showed are not an emergency.
@Sunshine Have ordered both mycorrhizae and Bone meal Which u refered. Gona try these soil mix for my organic grow on strain super market seeds.
Those are few strains I hav chosen. Most of de seed banks deny credit card.Gona do bank transfer tomorrow.
@Sunshine Wll question you guys next after getting de seeds. Till thn landrace sativa it is
these seeds are rare so listen carefully and do exactly as follows.
take a toilet roll paper fold it 6 ply, keep it in a steel "dabba" wich we usually use in india. size dsnt matter.
i am saying steel as it is opaque.
now pour warm water say 10 ml to the tissue paper till its all damp. keep the seed inside and fold the paper.
now keep it on your set top box or top of freez or top of a old crt tv or a computer desktop cpu. it needs warmth and daekness.
after 24 hrs check it and add 5 ml warm water again. close it again keep it again.
repeat till u see tiny white tail
now u can transplant the seed into the soil.
Great, sounds like you're cooking on gas @southindiansativa!
There are many different approaches to germination, personally I like to put them straight into the soil only a couple of milimeters beneath the surface. This saves transplanting and handling the delicate seed sprout.
Happy growing my friend!
yes, my last 2 germinations are direct seed into soil.
