Super soil scale down ratio help in the
The Grow Room forums; Hey guys, so I'm setting up my first batch of super soil in a couple years, I feel i never ...
I've never made subs soil, but I do make my own soil which is somewhat similar .....
Your compost/vermicompost should make up 25%-33% of your base mix. You need to add more worm castings or other form of compost to that mix imo. If you do add more, you should also consider bumping up your aeration material too. Pumice, rice hulls, lava rocke, perlite, etc.
A good base mix would be 50% sphagum peat (Pro-Mix), 25% worm castings, 25% aeration material
Thanks, St0w. I'll bump up the worm castings to 14L. The promix has some perlite but I can add more too.
I use something very similar to Super Soil. I am pretty sure Sub is talking about a regular sized bag of (Roots Organics) soil.
I mix a 1/4 batch that is very similar to this:
I left my notes to the side.
2 large bags of a high-quality organic potting soil with coco fiber and mycorrhizae (base soil, roots organic)
6.25 to 12.5 lbs of organic worm castings (go with 15 pounds add more croutons?)
1.25lbs or 20 ounces steamed bone meal
1.25lbs or 20 ounces bloom bat guano (0-5-0) (find replacement for this)
1.25lbs or 20 ounces blood meal
3/4 lbs or 12 ounces rock phosphate
3/16 cup or 3 tablespoons Epsom Salts
1/8 cup or 2 tablespoons sweet lime (dolomite)
1/8 cup or 2 tablespoons azomite (trace elements) (Lets go with 4 tablespoons)
1.5 teaspoons powdered humic acid
1 ¾ cups mycorrhizae
1 cup Greensand
3.5 tablespoons alfalfa meal
1 cup crab shell meal
22 cups coco croutons
I will add some more shredded coco next time and up some of the nutes/lime. I have really low humidity, so the croutons act as aeration and water retention. I want to jam as much compost/ewc in there as possible, without it getting muddy.
I have a batch that is 30 days old today. Any leftover tea goes into the super soil.
My last Ocean Forest mix had gnats and was not strong enough. I use that stuff for seedlings and clones.
Although monoecious plants are often referred to as "hermaphrodites," true hermaphrodites (which are less common) bear staminate and pistillate structures on individual flowers, whereas monoecious plants bear male and female flowers at different locations on the same plant.
