    It’s got time release Nutes ; says for 3 months of feed ; I’m hoping by putting it in the ground appropriately 3 months before planting into it it will be leached out?

    Amending the soil

    Depends, if its mg with time released nutes i wouldn't add anything for a while. If its the organic version, maybe some crab shell meal & greensand? Hopefully someone who uses MG can chime in.

    Questions about when to add nutes to auto flowers in Happy Frog soil.

Some amendments like SRP or greensand literally take years to fully release.

    I've been fighting Mn problems since I started organic growing and I think that I solved it.

    Yes, it's complicated and I still haven't figured out how to get micronutrients at a good level. High calcium is probably the culprit for you low B and C also affects potassium, but that don't look like a problem here. I think that your biggest problem is how low your micronutrients are. I've...

    I've been fighting Mn problems since I started organic growing and I think that I solved it. kelp meal to what ended up being about 120 gallons of mix with the added peat and perlite. Only other addition was around 3 pounds of greensand. Cant think of why my calcium and sulfur would have spiked like that? I moved a lady into a larger pot today and used this mix to see how she...

    I've been fighting Mn problems since I started organic growing and I think that I solved it.

    Got my re-test results back after doing the above. There was a delay in getting the results back due to an instrument problem they had which they said has been fixed. With the exception of N and B all my numbers went up, ph is exactly the same. Calcium and sulfur went way up. The sample was...

    Definitely give them a shout, I'm now curious what they say. They have upgraded their soil a few times I know. Never really noticed any issues with MN that I could tell. Perhaps the top dressings of goat manure, alpaca manure, and teas we use help out? Have you tried any of the foliar sprays...
