With this hobby comes some seriously mind boggling side effects. Not from the fruits of our
labor and the green candies our plants produce, but with the variety of options out there and
the rabbit hole it can lead you down once you start reading about hydroponics, chemical fertz.
organic fertz, coco coir, organic soil etc etc.
I bought myself some amendments to go along with my FFOF soil. I needed a way to
recharge the nutrients after a grow. Looked into Hardwood ash, RealGrowers Recharge, Dolomite, Bloodmeal, Bat and seabird poo, Worm castings and HOLY GUANO they all ended up at my doorstep. (we ALL know how that goes).
So to round off my reading and fully set myself to jumping into the organic soil side of this
hobby, humic and fulvic acid is the last piece to my puzzle. I’ve read two or three articles
saying humic and fulvic acid isn’t needed and can harm cannabis plants but 25 articles from
independent growers that swear by it. I’m familiar with Mycho Chum as I’ve used it for my
mycos fungus as a feeder, but there is a step beyond that where it’s beneficial to the biome
of the soil itself.
I’ve used Simple Garden Solutions: Soil Hume previously and my plants seemed to
love it. They greened up, perked up and I just keep watering and feeding like normal. But is there something out there that is specifically designed for cannabis? Am I missing something
important that goes hand in hand with organic soil and the acid combo?
(FYI Humic acid also neutralizes Chloramines and Chlorine in municipal water. I didn’t know
that until diving into this rabbit hole)
So as a noob and someone looking to get the best product I can to improve my chances at a
headache free grow, what are some of the Humic / Fulvic acid treatments are YOU growers
using and what kind of response have you gotten from it?
