    You could probably ditch the vermiculite if you are using water crystals

    Try adding gypsum to the bottom of your hole to break up the clay,and you can add it to your soil mix for calcium

    Sorry. I had a derp. I was trying to think what broke up clay and corrects pH. Got the wrong end of the scale saying dolomite. You'll want something like peat moss or sulphur for raising acidity. Peat moss retains water to boot. And both vermiculite and perlite add air pockets.

    I finished the digging and it turns out it's only 1 foot of clay then sand underneath. I have gone with Hawaiian skunk from ams see how it goes

    isnt that a sure fire way to have 5-0 arrive along with the package? Cause ive really been wanting some autoflowering seeds but I'm terrified to order them online and get busted

    Think you will find

    Think you will find indicas and hybrids grow pretty well hear sometimes even better than sativas.

    The reason sativas are generally Australias main line of genntics has to do more with back in the days when Australia hardly grew any cannabis (1940s "yes people smoked weed in the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s)and imported it (eg. shipped it over in boats from places like bali, Asia, south America, Jamaica, africa). Most of these strains were sativa, meaning most of the growing material growers could get there hands on and grow were sativas.

    Why you find some special Australians (old, old growers) growing long lost line of pannanma red, morroco, clombian gold (excuse my spelling) or some other crazy land race or sativa mix. And have been for last 50 or 60 years.

    I grew some 100% indica afghan and some Pakistan plants out doors last season an they pumped along nicely
