Welcome! Where did you find you soil recipe? Looking for a good super soil
Thanks for the tag! Set to watching good luck
I’m watching. I grew skunk #1, have to say it was anything but skunky.
Good luck on your first grow
This is the best book & soil recipe I have found, the taste of the flower is so nice this way,no nutes at all just water,no kidding.
Thanks @Interlu but this is actually just my first attempt at intentional breeding,have done this accidentally,LOL I have been growing for many, many years but outdoor, I am 60 this year so from the old school, I have 3 legal grows indoor all successful to an extent but since I stopped using Nutes my bud is freaking amazing, never would have thought this could be done indoors and with $89 led’s, I have another post under Grandaddy Purple Harvest if you would like to take a look.
Awesome, thanks. I’ll take a look! That’s what I’m looking for…no adding nutes all the time.
Yep the cost is probably about the same,maybe just a bit higher at first but it is easy and the best smoke ever,smooooooth, I can help you out if you need, I have read that book 3 times plus,it is about how the microbes feed the plant the elements you put raw into the soil, it is amazing and you never have to worry about if they have enough or too much nutes,the micro orgs. eat the raw elements and crap on the roots,quick version of what you will read,LOL have fun and get this.
Hey @AAA how was the weed itself,the Skunk1? I have only had ILGM’s Super Skunk and not a big fan of the sweet taste,it tastes good but not like weed,LOL how was the taste & potency??? I am in Mo. but copped these out in Portland Oregon area, seems like all the good stuff everyone makes fem.
Awesome. I downloaded it already. I’ll be reading soon. I’ll hit you up with questions as they come up! Thanks a bunch
That’s a frosty bud! Nice
Not that impressive. Sweet, incense, floral, and fruit notes. According to legend the skunk smell was too strong when it was brought to Amsterdam so they bred out the skunk smell.
Overall I would give the final product a 6/7. The plants were beautiful, bud buds, high calyx to leaf ratio.
I just like my weed to be loud! SK1 was not.
Thanks & they taste marvelous too, especially when you smoke them thru a Pax3 vaporizer https://www.pax.com/products/pax-3?variant=13409001341043 it taste way better then vaping concentrates but there is still nothing like my old glass bong with raw weed in it,LOL took me a couple day’s to figure the Pax3 out,LOL
Read about half the book last night. I’m liking it so far. So you do all the layering and the spikes?
What about transplanting so many times? I was hoping to do solo cups into final pots. Transplanting wore on my nerves last time. I was not good at it lol. I dropped one plant upside down into the new pot🤪. It made it but I was a nervous wreck
Yes I do spikes, bottom & top dressings I don’t use the middle, I only transplant once but almost alway’s just start the seed in my 2 or 3 gal pot as long as they are fem seed,if you do that with reg seed you will have to recycle the soil in the pot after you chop them,the roots that are in the soil will cause you problems if you just try to reuse the pot without cleaning it and putting fresh soil in. I will try and upload a transplant video for you before you are ready,you will need to cook that mix for at least 1 month & that is if you can keep it around 75 to 80 deg. But it is worth it,I make my soil in a double compost tumbler I have,it is great for mixing it together & aging it in, mine is in my heated John deer room, I am almost to the point of total recycle,couple more grows and no more bagged soil for me. A quick tip on transplant is not to worry about it, I actually take all the soil off the root and shove it down into a hole in the soil,LOL,mainly with clones,just never transplant into this soil unless the seed was germ, in it, if you germ, out of the soil you will need to build a barrier of bagged potting soil to drop it in,at least 2 inches from the super soil and then the roots will find the raw supplements on their own terms.
I eventually want to get to that point!! That’s some beautiful growth!!! @acort
Thanks for the info. I’ll keep reading!!
@AAA Kind of how I feel about Super Skunk,I think they are probably the same,sweet and it does have a punch tho if the Trichomes are just right. Thanks
