    See those burnt leaf tips? Your media EC is likely too high. Pull a run off test using distilled water and a betcha you're pushing past 1500 ppm. I know there's a belief you can't burn plants with organics, and it's kinda true depending on what angle you choose to look from. This is essentially...

    Compost ruining drainage - normal behavior?

    Rice hulls,pumice,sand/greensand/minerals. Castings/compost/vermicompost are all going to hold more water than peat. Peat by itself drains super well because it's actually extremely hydrophobic when dry so you kinda really have to soak it to get it to fully saturate. Compost tends to absorb more...

    If you are running A high pressure sodium light I would raise it up up about another 12". After that personally I would double check my hydrology. Very often it appears like a deficiency but it's really just our watering methods.( how much, how often, how heavy, what time) all things to...

    Build a soil with these

    I would personally be using the greensand if you plan on using this soil for a bit. I'm no expert but I remember reading that the only major drawback to using it is how long it takes to breakdown and become available in the soil. No sources, just drawing from old posts I remember reading, but...

    Build a soil with these

    ...no ocean stuff like fish bone or crab meal I think you'll need the lime and d lime for calcium and magnesium. I like gypsum for sulfur. Greensand is probably not necessary but I doubt it would hurt anything. I've heard that cotton seed meal and soybean meal could theoretically contain some...

    Build a soil with these

    ...the limes (dolomitic anc calcitic) and even gypsum at this point because i’ve never used it and i’m not growing in clay mostly. you posted azomite twice but i’d use it once. never used greensand too so i’ll skip that and use the rest in proportional amounts to create a 1-1-1 basic soil/soilless.

    I just looked up oyster shell as well. So there is a fourth "grit" I can use. I may try a mix of Azomite, Greensand powder, Cornmeal and powdered oyster shell. I'm thinking of reusing one of those "Parmesan Cheese" containers to make a mix and keep it in the fridge for sprinkling on worm...

    I understand that Greensand and Azomite take time to be available so I am all for pre-processing through vermicomposting. I have read concerns from growers on possible toxic effects such as aluminum. Then Again~! I just looked up what my fingers were typing about and I don't see bad things...

    Vermicomposters Unite! Official Worm Farmers Thread

    I have both Azomite and Greensand. Sand is something I saw on YouTube but thought better of adding to the worm-bin since it doesn't add any nutrients. I worry that it would become toxic to the worm bin. How do you apply Azomite and Greensand in your worm bin? A Little once in a while or no...
