    I am starting this thread to share the ideas that I have shamelessly stolen and to learn more from all of you.
    There are far to many people to thank personally for getting me to this point so thanks to everyone!
    I have been growing indoors using my own organic soil mix, fabric pots, ACT and SST teas, fermented plant juice.
    I will be using SIP Earth Boxes for my next grow.
    There is a brief summary below of what I am planning to use.
    If you want more details just ask.
    I have a couple of questions below for those that may have experience with what I am doing.
    In any case thanks for stopping by!

    "Executive Summary"
    • 4 Earth Boxes (legally allowed 4 plants in flower)
    • Soil: Combination of Build-A-Soil Organic Living Soil with Oly Mountain Fish Compost / Sip Soil
    • Initial Top Dress: Cocoa Shells with Gro-Kashi, Oly Mountain Fish Compost
    • Sprinkle of Neem Cake and Diatomaceous Earth (IPM)
    Feeding during veg:
    • Rain Water
    • Foliar: Fermented plant juice
    • Reservoir: Mammoth P
    • Gro-kashi???
    Strains: Somali Taxi Ride (fem seed), Boss Hogg (fem seed),Buddha Tahoe OG (monster crop clone), Buddha Tahoe OG (seed) pictured
    Lights: DIY LEDs - 27 Cree CXB3590
    Spectrums - 2700, 3500, 4000, 6500 run at 1050 mili amps.

    My Questions:
    1. After the initial addition of Gro-kashi tea to the reservoir do I need to add Gro-kashi on a regularly scheduled basis to maintain my anaerobic environment?
    2. This is my first use of Mammoth P, if any of you are using it can you provide me with your thoughts on its use for my application?

    I'm not super familiar with the method you're doing but I've got a boss Hogg cut I've been growing for almost a couple years now, my pheno vegges really spindly but she gets beautiful, wonderful, smelling buds and yields well enough.

    Dude, are we related!?
    Our styles are clean..

    Diggin the chromè tape over the seams
    Not to mention the classic wood trim

    Will be watching indeed,
    I'm going SIP in the exact same size as soon as my current ladies finish.. I use the exact same clear bins too, shit.

    Here's a very short thread on mammoth P,

    The cover helps maintain the aneorobic environment that you are trying to mimic, the forest floor.

    For now I am not planning to use any SST or ACT.
    Plan to top dress, foliar feed with the FPJ, maintain the SIP reservoir with Em1, Gro-Kashi and Mammoth P.
    Will see how that works.

    One week update:
    Pictured is my Buddha Tahoe O.G. when I transplanted it one week ago and now. She seems to like her new home.
    Treated the reservoir with Em1 and Mammoth P topped off with rainwater since transplant, I will be adding Gro-Kashi today and foliar feeding with FPJ (Fermented Plant Juice).
    I transplanted my other seedlings and my monster crop clone today, I will include updates on those in the future.
