    Show Me What You Got (Nutes edition)

    So I wanted to do something a little different. Well are always posting pictures of plants and grows or problems we are experiencing. I thought maybe it would be fun to post some pictures of the nutrients that we're using in our current grows or past grows. It doesn't matter if you're an organic grower or a synthetic grower. ALL ARE WELCOME! Whether you have a full table of nutrients or just a simple 2 bottle feeding regiment.

    Post some pictures of the tools that make you successful. If you want to give any additional information about feeding schedule or amounts used during different stages of the plants life. Let us know why you like the nutrients that you use. Maybe share a bad experience you had with a specific nutrient line or product.

    Might be interesting to see what everyone is working with. Maybe someone will be inspired to try something new or learn more about a regiment that they may be using but aren't very familiar with it yet or maybe they're a new grower and are looking for more info on feedings and nutrients.
    Peace. Love. Mushrooms and Weed.

    My growing style is primarily organic. I dabble a little with the only synthetic fertilizer I ever purchased with questionable results. The organics work well for me.
    I usually mix in most of those items when I make my soil then later I top dress materials in. Simply just water and watch grow after that. It's a very hands off way of growing. Most of the time you're just adding pH'd water. I've been organic gardening outdoors with my mother since I was a young kid. So it was only natural that organic growing indoors would be my default.
    NLS makes a great compost. I love using their compost to supercharge my soil with all the goods needed for fantastic growth. Along with their Flower Power PK booster compost for flowering and their Soil Revival innoculant. It's a winning trio for any organic grow.
    Neem seed meal is a great nitrogen source that slowly breaks down over time giving you nice slow release organic nitrogen with added soil conditioning enzymes as the seed breaks down.
    Insect frass is another good nitrogen source that also breaks down over time. Insect frass is also a great protozoa innoculant. There are very few products on the market that have protozoa in them. Having protozoa in your soil food web is incredibly beneficial. They're one of the bigger microbes and they eat most of the smaller ones turning them into nutrition for your plants.
    Kelp meal has tons of micro nutrients and enzymes to help your plants grow fast and strong. Seaweeds are the fastest growing plants in the world. You can tap into some of that speedy growth enzymes by using kelp meal.
    Mycorrhize is a must for every organic gardener(with some exceptions like broccoli or cabbage). The mycorrhize fungus colonizes and taps into your plants roots to create a symbiotic relationship where the plant gives the fungi sugars in return for nutrients that the mycorrhize finds in the soil with its mycelium network. It helps with pH regulation creating the correct pH conditions in the riseosphere of the roots. It helps bring water to the plant and gives the roots oxygen while eating up the carbon dioxide in the soil.
    Another must is worm castings. They have a great microbiome ecosystem of all kinds of goods bacteria and nutrients. They help hold moisture and are great to get organic matter started with decomposing.
    Fulvic acid helps chelate nutrients and makes them readily available for the plant to use.
    Silica is non essential but a beneficial supplement. It helps build stronger plant walls and helps with resisting stress.
    Dolomite lime and the gypsum are great calcium sources for front loading soils. Dolomite Lime has the added benefit of also having magnesium. It's also a great pH stabilizer if you have acidic soil.
    Over the years I've accumulated quite a bit of goodies for the girls. Some of the stuff I use for mushroom cultivation as well. But I love using and learning about different organic amendments.

        Oh man that's great crucialbunny i'm hoping my raised beds churn an burn for next years veggie garden. Beautifull wormy soil.

      I am going to throw down with perhaps an unpopular view.
      To me, organic means sticking some seeds in the ground and using what is already in the soil. Maybe put some in a container for an indoor grow with organic lighting and otherwise organic tent environment. When people start mixing the different powders and organisms, they get an unnatural, engineered growing medium. Frankensoil.
      I understand wanting to get the best and the most. But I can't call anything but growing in the ground organic.

        Nitrates occur naturally in ground water. It would be difficult to find any ground water without them, anywhere. They are completely organic.

      I took an organic chemistry course and Im pretty sure it was the study of the chemistry of what once was alive. In food labeled organic it is supposed to NOT have synthetic chemicals used or teating the crop during the grow. That's kinda what organic means to me.
      Nothing synthetic

        The great soil food web.

      I'm not bagging on what is considered organic. I buy organic fruits and vegetables and junk that are sold as organic. When I had my garden, everything compostable went in my compost pile, later mixed in the garden. Gimme time at a farmers' market to make me happy.
      I'm just talking about building soil vs. digging a hole. Maybe I'm being too... I don't know... not an asshole... something.
      F your I, the USDA requires a product to be 95% organic to be called 100% organic.

        But it's also considered USDA organic when they take farming refuse and use it as compost. Even though it was sprayed with Roundup and other kinds of chemicals because it's farm waste and it's going to be composted into fertilizers for plants that stuff is considered organic.. So I don't exactly trust the government when it comes to properly labeling things as organic.
        Now as far as organic matter goes then you're absolutely right it's basically anything that was once alive that now has become food for something else because it's dead

        Over the years I've determined that when I buy my organic veggies that it just means that they are covered in dirt.

      My nutrient set up. Don't laugh at the DIY syringe holders. I mix nutrients using ml/L and like the syringes for accuracy, ease of use, and tidiness. I've added the Easy Flow to the mix this grow. It's supposed to keep the irrigation lines clear. We'll see.

        Better system than mine. I just use some rubber bands. It's a mess. I know I have those dual sided sticky plastic Velcro type deals for hanging picture frames. I just can't find them. I say Dr MJ Coco use them and it was all nice and neat. *Grabby paws*. I'll find them yet!!

        Much better than mine also

      Got my first bag of Build a Soil worm castings (the inhouse ones). I'm pretty sure these will be considerably better than the Amazon worm castings (ie wiggle worm, naturegrow). The ones I got on Amazon seem to be giving me fungus gnat infestations every single time I use them to top feed my plants.

      I need to educate myself about Vermicomposting more and get my own bin started. Nothing beats the fresh stuff you make yourself. But you have to know what to feed the worms for example a ratio of brown and green food for the worms so that the castings have the proper ratio of nutrients. I know if you overdo it too much on green foods like fresh grasses it could swing the castings to One direction in terms of nutrition. I'm sure there's other nuanced things that I don't know yet but that's on my list of projects I have to work on.

        Because I use my worm castings primarily for top dressing and tea during flower and bud I feed them with food high in P&K nutrients. Bananas, avocado, and dark greens. I use leaf mulch to cover the soil in the bin and it helps keep the castings moist.
