I was looking for some sul-po-mag and the guy in Berkeley said it would work as a substitute we will find out soon. It was a reputable nursery so I think I'm good he did mention medicine in the conversation. keepem green dirrtyd

AS TMB said sometimes they are weak the second sprout died. Well planting four more seeds as soon as I finish here. The first sprout has its second set of leaves still on the window sill. After the third set will put under a cfl for a while. Then outside it will go hopefully after the sixth set of leaves I will be able to determine sex. keepem green dirrtyd

Well waiting for another seed to sprout the third set of leaves should be here shortly. going to repot and put under a cfl for a while will give another myco add to the soil before transplant so the roots can explode. keepem green dirrtyd
Sounds great thanks for the trick. I just usually turn the soil weekly and it gives great results. This is a new mix so will test with a spring harvest. I will get some clones to do a comparison with a batch of soil using guano's with blood and bone meal to replace the fish products. they will both be water only we will see which smokesthe smoothest at the end.keepem green dirrtyd

Well, that's what your doing to the fungal hyphae network every time you till your soil.
Some will say that the fungal network really only grows when the plant is growing....but this is not completely correct. Mychorrizal fungal hyphae actually begin germinating their spores at the presence of moisture, darkness and carbohydrates...and then begin really building the complete network once root exudates are present(in other words, when a plant is growing).
Because of the presence of woody structures in humus and other high quality soils, this allows the mychorrizae to begin growing.
Well heres what we will do . I will continue with a couple of batches my way and the other half your way. I will transplant clones into both mixes in late January. They will stay in the pots the rest of there life. I will let them grow naturally . I want to see if there is a difference. Not sure what strain I will use yet I'm sure I can find something good that should fade well at the end. keepem green dirrtyd
Started six more of the kanangaxblueberry seeds. Going to really try and get more of these beans and take a few clones to do a full summer crop with this strain. This is a smooth smoke with a loud fruity smell. Keepem green dirrtyd
Well the gurl with three sets has went under a CFL in the garage. I will transplant her in a week into a larger pot. The second sprout is showing is first set of true leaves. I see a potential sprout in another party cup I used a week ago will know in a few days.keepem green dirrtyd
