    I'll attempt to get my "essay" done soon. Vacation put me three days behind on everything. I'm going to half to build my second flower light before the flowering phase. I will not have room under the cobs with the 6 manifolds that will be in there soon.

    I rarely handed in homework on time, if at all....so if I'm late, I'm late

        Lol I have been dreaming of starting seeds for days now 😉. Also in one of the dreams you called me on the phone... I don't remember what was said but it was about mj lol. Was an odd dream to say the least.

      1 Plants: committing to 2 DGTH and 2 GC, if I get my shit together I want to try a third of each in a hybrid medium.

      2 Grow: Space: framed in room in basement, 13.5x6 veg room/storage/work room - 13.5x8 flower room

      3 Lights: seedlings - 2' fluorescent t8 and 125 watt CFL
      veg stage - Most likely my remodeled vipar and mars which equal around 225 watts together. If i get my parts in time and assemble the light, I will use the two morsen remodels which equal about 395 watts together
      flower stage - I have to have the light built by now. I will either; 1- Finish anything I have in there under the cobs and use the new light (2' samsung lm561c H series strips x 32, 3000k and 4000k mix, 400 watts, 64,000 luminous flux, two independent 4'x2' frames), 2- Build this thing and finish under it and use the 600 watts of cobs/70 watts of mono reds. The second sounds better but we will see....

      4 Medium: 2 17 gallon no till super soil/ started in peat plugs/ solo cups/ 1 gallon fabric pots
      2 DWC 5 gallon buckets/6" net pots/rockwool and hydroton. started in rockwool plugs then to 3" blocks
      **Extra Credit** 2 5 gallon fabric (hybrid) mix. Started in peat plugs/ solo cups/ 1 gallon fabric pots. I will use 35-40% coco coir, 15-20% perlite, 10-15% peat amended with lime/ gypsum/ iron-tone/ oyster shells/ azomite/ megamend/ kelp meal/ alfalfa meal/ bio-char, the rest a mix of EWC/ compost. The idea here is I want to be able to water everyday at least, but have it be organic. I will use Canna's bio line which is a Grow, Flower, and Rhizotonic for roots, all certified organic. There is a boost product but it is not fully organic, and it's expensive. Not sure how this would go but my curiosity makes me want to do it regardless of the results. Good luck to me on this one.

      5 Containers: described above- 2 17 gallon no till super soil containers, 2 5 gallon DWC buckets, **Bonus** 2 5 gallon fabric pots hybrid mix

      6 Nutes/Additives: DWC- Canna line= Rhizotonic, Cannazyme, Vega A+B, Flores A+B, PK 13/14, Cannaboost, Calimagic. Armor Si
      Super soil mix- receipe is.....
      Medium- 3 cubic ft sunshine mix #4 advanced with coco coir (7 5 gallon buckets)
      1 1/2+ 5 gallon buckets each of purple cow compost and coast of Maine lobster compost- I ordered the CoM compost because i read about it
      1 1/2 + 5 gallon buckets each of ewc, two kinds
      2 +/- 5 gallon buckets of perlite, added a little vermiculite because I had it laying around.
      (Part of this came from another forum and can't take credit for it)

      Amendments...
      Equal parts;
      Blood meal- high N for growth
      Bone meal- high N and P for flower and root structure
      Bat guano- high N and microbes and enzymes
      Iron tone- micro and macro nutrients
      Garden lime- pH control and macro nutrients
      Garden gypsum- pH control (helps lime move through soil and prevent compaction), root growth, micro and macro
      Oyster shells (ground)- calcium, pH control
      Green sand- takes forever to break down but good K source, mined from the sea (never used it before, from another forum)
      Fish meal- excellent for microbial life, high N and P
      Chicken manure pellets- slower release N, beneficial bacteria
      Rock phosphate- for flower
      Tomato tone- balanced fertilizer, high K
      Garden tone- balanced fertilizer, higher K
      Dr Earth garden fertilizer- same, for diversity also has mycorrhizae
      Doubled these;
      Alfalfa meal- good K source but adds beneficial microbes that help break down nutrients to readily available, triacontanol, more....
      Kelp meal- adds aminos, carbs, vitamins, minerals, plant hormones, and much more....
      Neem cake- well rounded source of macro but mainly for pests and disease
      Azomite- rock dust for micro nutrients and trace minerals
      Mega mend natural minerals- another trace mineral source
      Bio-Char- Suppose to help with nutrient absorption and mirco biology, keeps soil loose

      Will be using molasses, kelp and alfalfa meal teas/sprays, and top dressings of EWC/compost/amendments

      **Bonus** I will use 35-40% coco coir, 15-20% perlite, 10-15% peat amended with lime/ gypsum/ iron-tone/ oyster shells/ azomite/ megamend/ kelp meal/ alfalfa meal/ bio-char, the rest a mix of EWC/ compost. The idea here is I want to be able to water everyday at least, but have it be organic. I will use Canna's bio line which is a Grow, Flower, and Rhizotonic for roots, all certified organic. There is a boost product but it is not fully organic, and it's expensive. I will probably use the sample of mammoth P I have for the added enzymes and bacteria.

      7 Experience: I am at just over one year of growing MJ. I have gardened and kept up my own landscaping for years now.

      My grow philosophy right now is see what is like and grow for fun.

      I grow because I like MJ, nuff said.

      I want to see how everyone's grows turns out with there method, medium, etc.

      I think that' s it, whew.....

        I actually am as well....I've come to realize it's not my growing that's the problem, so much, it's the damb drying/curing!🤬🤬🤬

        Oh one other supplement.....a healthy dose of music while they are awake. That's not new though.

        Growing is a cure even on my worst days I can still manage to take care of the girls

      It turns out that if you dont turn the dehumidifier off when you leave the room it works alot better . thats right I was turning it off no wonder the damn thing didn't work lol

      The power over my work bench is on a switch in the front part of the cellar ,all of the grow rooms have direct power to them ,so when I moved the dh to the work area I plugged it in without remembering what supplied power to it , I did this for a week and yesterday I was down there messing with the DH and I followed the supply line back to the receptical and the light bulb went off oh shit .

      So when you guys stop laughing, theres only 5 days and a wake up (in case of some of you 4 days and a stay up late lol)

      I had a little video of the air injectors running but it wouldn't post and I had to post this old picture
      I have 7 7gallon pots ready with air injectors installed I will have to use one of the pots that I'm using now in bloom room

        no biggie it just showed air bubbles in water thanks though

      Any thoughts, suggestions, ideas, experience, good or bad will be taken on my "hybrid" mix grow. I honestly could see it going well for a while but then turn bad, just like that. It's all going to depend on whether the nutes can be broken down and available for the roots, but at the same time, not creating an unsavory environment for the roots to rot. I can't measure ec but I can control the pH with household items.
      should I buffer the coco first? With what that's organic. There's GO calmag but I'd rather not if I can avoid it. I was hoping the added lime and whatnot would take care of the calcium. Then use Epsom salt for the magnesium if any is needed.

        Everything sounded good to me until you started talking about not buffering
        I think you can pull it off for sure... will require more attention though. Not sure if work will get in the way. I like the spirit of experimentation and really think there is no better time to do it!
        Just follow my normal buffering instructions with a 150% dose of the GO CalMag.
        Cheers!

        I'll have to order that. Not available where I go. Pre buffered i assume?

      I apologize for not being more on top of things here. I have been just unbelievably busy working on a new project. I have been thinking for days that I need to work on the DHGC info and posts. I just realized last night that I had better also start getting my stuff ready to grow some plants!!!
      Going to use recycled coco and going to start the recycling process today. Coco has been drying on my front deck for, um, months now. Should be fun getting messy with coco again!

      My wife has been traveling in Central America for the last few weeks. She is flying home today! Needless to say, I am going to be busy cleaning the house for the next several hours

      I'll be with you all shortly! Just a few more days till we kick things off

        I think it caught a rare condition from the under watering, called " Spineossis".
        Best thing to do, is just start watering normally again, and I'm sure you will be harvesting some top quality buds in no time!

      Just over 7 hours to go!

      I had plans to start my journal today and the master journal tomorrow. But the forum was down and I may not start either until tomorrow now.

      I took the seeds out of the fridge last night and have them ready to go! Going with paper towels vs rapid rooters. One of each strain in each method.

      As I stated earlier. I will be watching the seconds click off the counter and my seeds get wet when the clock strikes 0!
