I add just about 10% living water to my clone bucket and get better than I do with city water
Anyone that runs a Frass company and doesn't post numbers, well, I wouldn't buy anything they do. Just me.
I would watch what you add in flower, especially from the poop realm, if you want that super clean smoke, less is more. Especially late.
You scrape the gel from the inside of a alo vera leaf and mix this in with your foliar spray. The gel contains molecules called saponins. These are soap like substances and they break the surface tension of the water so that it coats the plant surface in an even layer and does not bead up. There are also nutrients in the gel that plants like, so you can put it in your soil.
What do you guys think about almond, nuts, pistacho ecc.. shells ??

You can give your organics a boost with water that you clean aquarium filter media in.
I have never taken ppm readings as it is impossible to burn plants or new seedlings with it.
Yesterday I cleaned a particularly dirty filter in a 15L bucket of water and took a reading.
My tap water is about 47ppm and with the filter dirt in there all stirred up and the water nice and black ppm came back at 58ppm. You see many things won't show on a ppm meter, especially organics not from salt sources. Things like urea for example. The filter washing is also full of the bacteria that further break down this food.
I am not doing pure organics so I still add my nutes and calmag as per usual.
Edit, this is not the same as the ppm of the aquarium water. That is at least 100ppm more, but can also be used.
Nitrites are broken down into nitrates that end up in the filter.
