    Hi
    I thought its a good Idea to share this with you guys.....

    https://www.rhythmofnature.net/biodynamic-calendar-january-2018

    This is the calender I use for planting sowing etc.

    Biodynamics are brought to us by Rudolf Steiner.
    If you like organics you should check for his preperations.

    He is for gardenening/farming, what Nikola Tesla was for Electronics.

    Hope you have benefits from it.
    For me it works just fine.
    The logic behind is also easy to understand.

    Simple Test:
    - Use the paper towel method or any other method youre skilled for germination....
    1.Try germinate 10 seeds when the calender says its good to sow.....
    2.And try 10 seeds when it says its no good.
    See the difference.

    Peace

    My friends laughed their asses off when I introduced the above calender to them. Lol
    Thay gave me funny names like "moon swami" and asked me to wear a orange cape and a baldy.
    Was funny as hell. Lol

    But some of em changed their minds after testing it.
    @vostok
    Give the link a chance ;-)
    There's your calender

    Didn't the Indian's plant and harvest by lunar cycles? I'd be willing to try that when I get to grow again.

    Try bachbiodynamics.com I like his calendar better, more trial based considering multiple influence. I'm doing a germination experiment with ryegrass through the upcoming eclipse so, yeah, I belive in biodynamic techniques.

    I
    I ' ll check it out.

    Found out today that I overlooked that the next good time for Seeds is tomorrow.... was sure it was 1. Feb but I guess ( memo for myself: I should smoke less)

    That means my GA3 on old Seeds experiment will start sooner than I believed.

    Peace

    This is a great practice for produce. Not so much for indoor cannabis growing. Based on my own experiences around planting . Now outdoor at the right latitude is another story.
    Cheers :)

    Yes somehow limited....
    But why should you start seeds you maybe payd for when its naturally a time to avoid doing so.
    I am happy because I dont start any Seeds the wrong time anymore.

    Peace

    Btw. I believe its essential doing it that way for indoor and outdoor.

    Look at the oceans they are totally under influence by the moon.
    At one time there is Pressure and at the other half of time there is "Subpressure?". Ebb/Flow
    Pull/Press ying/yang

    I believe that in a "pulling" phase the Plant needs less energy to germinate and to crack the seedshell

    Using this "energy plus" for root development and therefor earlier nutrient uptake combined with that right at the right time thing, I suggest will give the plant some noticeable advantages.

    Just my 2Cents

    So this is new to me. So do you germinate your seeds on the days that are optimal or is that when they are suppose to go in thd dirt?

    The way I look at it 2 days before is when they go into paper towels, hopefully they have sprouted a tail if so they go in dirt on first day of range, use the other days to keep planting as they generate tails.

    Doing an experiment with rye grass right now, planting every day until a few days after eclipse......

    I start and plant only on days that are optimal.

    Example:
    1-8 February is a good time
    On 1. Feb. soak the seeds using your prefered method.
    On 2./3. Feb. You should see a tail or not.
    Now I plant the Seeds in dirt.
    Next two/three days the small Plant will penetrate the soil surface.
    That would be 5./6. Feb.

    That would be optimum for germination ....
    ...and any other following biological processes afterwards are also diled in/linked to the mooncycles as I understand it.

    The biological clock of your plant is now in harmony/synchroniced with the bigger stellar clock

    Just my 2 Cents

    Peace out

    I do this as much as possible. It's based on The Farmers Almanac for vegetables- plant in the early spring harvest in the the fall; but that's for single crop per season

    Still,I believe we'e all connected and that there is an optimal planting time based on dna awareness

    makes sense the gravitational pull of the moon would be optimal at certain times.

    I find the farmers alminac to be more situational and related to crop timing. Though they are similar in some regards, the calendar I posted above tends to indicate a few days out of each month and since it is also globally applicable it dosent matter if you are in northern hemisphere or southern. Biodynamics uses ascention and descention of planetary bodies. For instance last spring was supposed too be a good time to plant oak trees because mercury was in ascention.

    There is also controversy within the community, Bach's calendar differs from one put out by Maria Thun a strong figure in bd. I think Bach's is more in line with rudolf steiner's original interpretations.

    I to belive like @PetFlora.

    Good Point Bro....
    Got to think about that...

    Closer to Steiner is always good.
    You are right on maria thun she influenced a lot and some see her as the Guru but the Guru was Steiner.

    Have you read the Seminar documents from the Seminar he gave for farmers?

    Man I envy the guy for his Senses and his understanding about the micro/macro link in nature in corelation with the Planetary system.
    The greater understanding.of nature and the mechanisms behind all that.

    Peace
