@JaneQP Do you have to ph & all or do you only give small amounts of the solution?

I for got an important step!!! STRAIN the bit juice before using.

I don’t think I have every pH’d the bits. I grow using Earthdust now so I only top dress three times during the season, keep the soil moist, and add light and love. I don’t have to test pH or PPMs any more. I needed a simpler way.

I think they live in the top inch or so of the surface so no need to drench the plants.

Best to you!

Sorry to “bud” in :laughing: if you ph your everyday water I would ph the bit juice, as Jane said we grow organic and it’s not necessary to ph anything :wink: good luck :+1:

Plants yielded 2oz of good bud or a little above. My goal is to figure out how to grow the bigger, fatter buds organically. I use a hodge-podge of foods, & teas. Again im new new new lol, eventually ill find what works from growing, reading, watching, & learning. Happy Growing, thanks for sharing your grows :blush:

Thank you, @TT !! Greatly appreciated.

Hey TT! What’s your soil mix?? And what was in the tea brew from the last tea post?? Also great haul from cannacon! Microbial mass is an amazing product and grove bags are a must! I’m trying to catch up the best I can. Love your garden!

Try to get to canncon. If you can hook up with other ILGM growers it is even a better time! We met up with @Graysin and @Growingforothersbin NM. They would find all the organic booths with free products for me!

I believe there is a local one in Denver in September and I my child, their friend and I are considering attending one day. We will probably get a room downtown and make a day of it.
