    SOIL 1st grow Lots of blunders

    I think a lot of my mistakes come from assuming things. My latest assumption was that all super soils are packed with enough nutrient power to last a good long time. It turns out some super soils are more super than others. The particular SS I'm using (Blue Sky organics) has timed out on me. I spoke to the master grower from the company today and he told me it's only intended for a four week vegetative period and it must be supplemented with organic additives after a time. It lasted about 8 weeks for me. I spend two weeks fussing with water and tea and ph (which was helpful) but he real problem was likely the soil. I'm 10 weeks from germination and still in veg. I don't want to switch before I get a handle on the problem which is taking time. The flower period for this strain is 11-12 weeks. Can I still save this with tea and organic additives?
    4 X 5 gal fabric pots supplemented with; Growganica Incredible Bulk bloom booster, Compost tea, worm castings, Stepwell bloom top dress. Pure Crop 1 foliar spray, Vipar Spectra R900, Fusion Hut 3X4X6 Fusion Breath 4" fan/filter. Hawaii X Maui Waui feminized photoperiod.

      The KIS stuff looks good but it appears to be un obtainable up here in Canada. Any Canadians using super soil that can last over five months?

      It looks like a few different types of deficiencies going on. I posted some photos earlier under the title; Water,water everywhere. Yes indeed, I am training the hell out of them. In some cases I'm using their own branches for a scrog. I've managed to wrestle them down to about 1 foot high which might be a little too high if they triple in size from there. If they get higher than 32 inches I'll have to bust them out of the tent for the last few weeks. I picked up some fertilizer called Fert-Alive from Blue Sky which is intended to bolster their "super soil" for a longer grow. Pheww! buyer beware. I almost made my own soil last summer but I didn't have the storage and didn't realize you could half the recipe.
