So a few people have asked about my super soil, or living soil. For me i approach these differently, although similar, they are 2 differnt things. Super soil is, well SUPER. Loaded with the kinds of things that cannabis needs. And i try to make it available to them from multiple sources, in large enough quantities they will never have any chance of def’s. And a healthy thriving community of healthy microbial life.
SUPER SOIL. recipe(general amounts, to give you an idea)
Base: home made compost( has all our food, yard, garden scraps,small mammal, chicken,goats and reptile waste and bedding, ) i sift it threw a screen so i dont get big clumps. 1 heaping full wheel barrow full, dumped on a big tarp in the driveway in full sun.
.2x 40-50lb bags of worm castings
.1x 25lb play sand
.2x 8lb bags of vermiculight
.1x 1.5- 50lb bags of pumic stone
.1x box of bio-live
1/2 box of Amozite(trace minerals)
1 cup of calcium powder( sell this for use with reptiles)
1x container of simulac baby formula
2-5lbs of organic dog food(helps cook fast)
1/2 box of kelp meal
1xbox of bat guana
1xbox insect fras
1/2box of greensand
1/2box of soybean meal
1/4box humic acid
5lbs bag of blood meal
5lb bag of bone meal
This last batch i had a 15lb bag of composted cow manure i threw in.
1/2-3/4 bale of peat moss
2 big blockes of coconut husk, but i use compost tea i make to wet/hydrate the bricks
Then i mix it up using the tarp to flip the pile. And i fill up buckets or trash cans and dump them back out, over and over until its mixed really well. Then i wet the mix.The last batch i timed making so i could clean the fish and frog tanks. I generally change about 70% of the water and refill with new water, but u have to leave some so the healthy bacteria in the tanks isnt totally wiped out, and then used that water to help wet the mix. It needs to be wet but not soaked. Letting it dry out is bad and letting it be too wet is bad. I found smaller batches cook and store great in my compost tumblers. But covering them with a black tarp works too. Then just let sit in the sun for 90days, i stir mine about every week or two.
