hello 66 hows things all good i hope mate. i will grow them to the usual
under the metre mark about 3 feet finished unless they dont want to
go that tall or coarse mate. will top them twice as usual or top and fim
depending on height, im growing organicly now mate no more chems for me!
im using plant supreme compost and old timer grow and bloom with
guanokalong bat poop for my organic boost, as its 2-15-2 and is excellent for bubble teas, and a bit in the final pot up helps
with branching and overall health it seems. loving the K.I.S.S
system brought to my attention by Melvan, and chats with sickle
have converted me in the end i think TLO feed the soil
working with the beneficials, Mycorrhizae micro herd, etc
its all good and i wont go back to coco mate its too easy
my ph pen is redundant.

lol i know 66 mate but its all too interesting to me to ignore!
never say never i suppose but this compost organics lark is the life.
some would argue i was one of those people once, but i have seen the light! excuse the bad analogy. yeah bottle of grow and bloom, bat poop
and liquid seaweed extract and molasses. id say the growth is as good as coco without the fuss and if it was slower i wouldent notice because
ive not got to watch them like a hawk.

hi billy, i dident bother going organic in coco being its an inert
medium that generally needs regular flushing and no end of ammendments
a good compost mix offers more than any coco alone can. where the beneficials are concerned, in order to get the coco working as well
as compost organicly would defeat the purpose of using it. from
my experience the constant monitoring and measuring required with
coco a grower would get better results with salt based nutes
coco works organicly as part of a soil mix ie: super soil etc
coco acts as part of it, but as for grow organicly in it,
i think it would be like equivelent of urinating in the wind.
a good sphagnum peat or like will hold as much water and act as good
in many ways the trick is to buy a good soil the difference is plenty.
im converted i wasted many an hour and a penny on coco all i needed
was a chemist jacket i spend more time smoking now lol god or bad who knows

here a bit of reading for the interest of organic growers
or people thinking of making the move.

The Soil Food Web in Action…
“Feed the Soil to Feed the Plants”


The Soil Food Web is the basis of soil fertility in organic gardening and farming. Organic gardening relies on the interconnected web of soil organisms—from bacteria and fungi to protozoa, microarthropods, and earthworms—to supply nutrients to your vegetables,

Organic gardeners strive to increase both the numbers and diversity of organisms that make up the soil food web. They do this by

Avoiding toxic chemicals. Pesticides, fungicides, herbicides, and nitrate salt fertilizers simplify ecosystems, favoring pests and plant diseases that are generally weak competitors in a diverse, natural ecosystem.
Even the “inert” carrier oils in these sprays can wipe out many species of beneficial fungi, which compete with pathogenic fungi that can infect plants. Nitrate fertilizers cause earthworm populations to dive—quite literally—as they try to get away from the irritating salts.

Increasing the organic matter in the soil. Adding good garden compost, animal manures, or organic soil amendments like alfalfa meal creates a bacterial and fungal population boom, and organisms all the way up and down the soil food web benefit from this increase. See Improving Garden Soil for more information.


Plants as Collaborators


People think of plants as passive things, rooted to the spot and there to be eaten by whatever herbivore happens upon them, whatever insect flies in or crawls up their stem, or whatever spore falls onto their leaves. Plants are hardly passive, but they are subtle.

Plants synthesize chemicals to make themselves unpalatable to insect pests, or sicken herbivores that eat too many leaves. This is why plant vigor is the first defense against garden insect pests. Large, robust vegetable plants put off insect pests—they’re able to synthesize more of these off-putting chemicals than smaller, weaker plants.

Plants are also exceptional at recruiting microbial allies. They do this by pumping a steady stream of sugars, simple starches, and amino acids out onto their leaves, and into the soil surrounding their roots.

Why do plants “invest” 20-70% of the energy they get from the sun in freebies for the ecosystem?

Leaves are coated with innocuous or beneficial bacteria, and plant roots are completely encrusted with bacteria and symbiotic fungi. Disease organisms have to fight their way through the crowd at the trough to infect leaves and roots. And some in the crowd are predators.

Many of these recruits produce chemicals that put off pests, or release growth hormones that increase the growth of your vegetables. On leaves, high bacterial populations—and diversity—inhibit insect pests, which show a preference for leaves with lower bacterial densities.

Because of these root exudates, the Rhizosphere—the zone of soil within 1-2mm of plant roots—is the most diverse ecosystem on the planet.

How the Soil Food Web Works

Plants secrete sugars, simple starches, and amino acids into the soil solution around their roots. In addition, as roots grow, they slough off the outer layers of cells, which become fodder for the soil food web surrounding the roots.

Populations of bacteria multiply, myccorhizal spores germinate and infiltrate the roots, and the roots become completely encrusted with bacteria and beneficial fungi. As the numbers of bacteria grow and mycorrhizal hyphae spread into the surrounding soil, soil predators increase in response to increasing prey populations.


Protozoa—amoebas, paramecia, rotifers, flagellates—graze along the edges of these encrusted roots. Larger predators like nematodes and earthworms move through the soil, feeding on the bacteria, fungi, and protozoa around the roots.

On the soil surface, microarthropod “shredders”—like orabitid turtle mites—skeletonize fallen leaves, shredding them into smaller pieces that bacteria and fungi in the soil can use for food. Springtails feed on the fungi, and red compost worms (Eisinea foetida) feed on fungi, bacteria, nematodes, and protozoa in the soil food web.

Every time a member of the soil food web urinates or defecates, your vegetables get a micro-burst of fertilizer, right at the root hairs of your plants. Yes, the amounts are tiny, but the numbers are vast. Billions of transactions every day.

hi guys heres the master kush at 14 days old, some nice big afghani
leaves developing. they have been fed 1.5ml litre of grow now.
ive also given them a good seaweed foliar spray, this helps
with all the micro nutrients and being absorbed straight away
into the leaves stimulates everything and i find gives things a
little kick. the down side is some times you can get a bit of dry
white residue on your leaves if you go heavy!. see picture on one of mine i went heavy. nothing serious only cosmetic and the benefits
out weigh the trouble caused. so ok the MK are rocking it im going to
grow them and top them and maybe sex the tops depending on whether the
seed plants show first soon be time for a pot up i think judging
by the way they are using water. keep you all posted,,,,CK

hello guys 4 weeks veg for the master kush, on 1.5 ml litre grow still.
and vegging steady under a 125 watt enviro. robust stems and starting to branch, i will top them soon for cuts, as they are gaining a bit of height. at this stage very low odor and just what im looking for in growth/behaviour. in 1 litre pots and will stay in them until
the final pot up into 6.5 litre squares. still giving seaweed
extract and molasses for the fungi to feed off. stocky little
plants with a nice smell upon rubbing a stem or leaf.
looking forward to seeing them flower and find a producer
