the super soil recipe was great, but i have ran this modified version a few cycles now and am much happier with the results. the herbs smell, flavor, crystal content, and stickiness are unbeatable. i will list the recipe, and then explain what i changed and my reasoning. i do a quarter batch from the original recipe. 2 large bags roots natural and organic soil 15 pounds Earth Worm Castings 420g fish bone meal (down to earth 3-16-0) 420g bat guano (happy frog 0-5-0) 420g blood meal (down to earth 12-0-0) 80g potassium sulfate (0-0-50) 200g ancient forest alaska humus (general organics) 200g xtreme mycorrhizal granules 200g azomite 100g sea kelp (algamin 1-0-2) 70g dolomite lime (30% cal 3% mg or 75/12) 50g alfalfa meal (down to earth 2.5-1-1) 20g humic acid powder (down to earth) 8g Epsom salt i do 420 grams instead of 560 (1.25 pounds) because i felt the original mix was too strong, and it did leave some residual BEFORE curing. lowering down too 420g removed that fixing the problem.. the plants have a very very light beginning of a color fade on a day 63 chop. the potassium sulfate is obviously to give the soil a (what i feel was needed) potassium boost. sulfer is also a flavor enhancer. the alaska humus has a very large diversity of microbial life that it adds to the soil, and it also acts as a ph buffer keeping your ph around 7. xtreme mycorrhizal granules i have used in the past and had great results, so i figure adding some into the soil mix is beneficial. i use more azomite because in my opinion from past experiences azomite and mycorrhizal combo have drastically improved yields and plant vigor. sea kelp is also for diversity of bacteria being added to the soil, everyone knows the benefit if seaweed/kelp in cannabis, plus it also is a small K boost. alfalfa meal i added because of the growth hormone triacontanol basically as long as u arent giving too much of it (which can delay flowering) its just a natural steroid for the plant basically. during flowering i use this schedule to feed the plant: STRAIGHT TAP WATER (i have gone thru the trouble of filling gallon jugs thru the water filter at a very slow pace and the results are very very similiar.. so i dont take the time to use dechlorinated water anymore.. its my understanding anyway that the chlorine content in water is no where near enough to kill the bacteria in soil. it would have to be at the strength of pool water, which my water is not, im sure somewhere somebodys is though) my plants are in 7gal pots, i give em 2 gallons of water as soon as the saucer below is dry. and when i do additives, i give it once a week, on the 2nd jug per plant. here is my flower feed schedule: 5ml liquid karma (day 1-day 14) 10ml liquid karma (21-49) 2tbsp sucanat (day1-14) 3tbsp sucanat (21-42) 4tbsp sucanat (49+) 5ml hygrozyme (1-49) i started just water only when i first started with super soil.. experimented with things here and there.. the things i found most beneficial were definitely liquid karma, and the sucanat.. hygrozyme is good, but if u need to go without something, keep the lk and sucanat and dump the hygrozyme. i pull very well.. no less than 4oz a plant (4 plants under a 1k) on the low yielders (grandaddy) and easily double on a high yielder. the gdp turns purple no matter what the temperature is, because its just the right amount of nutrients to where it starts fading at the end of flower.
