Someone asked me what I used so this is it. No nutes yet.
The soil brand name, “Magic Dirt” made me laugh hard. Thanks for that!
Looks like good stuff! And what a wonderful grow space you have, I saw in your other post. Happy gardening!
Were you get that at
@elheffe702 It’s a new brand I have never seen it before and it is nice! Wallyworld.
@Caosred morning! Not sure if I can say where but I will try, Walmart and Home Depot!
No worries, thanks! I’ve been considering mixing up my own soil, thanks for the info.
@elheffe702 I was also thinking about my own soil mix. Lots of well composted and manured garden soil here. Grows veges and flowers swell. I test stripped it out and it looks just under 7 on the PH. But the color strips are not terribly accurate.
And @highcountrygal, gypsum sounds like a plan. Where’d you find that? And the Superthrive?
Yup, like I was saying last night, this is gonna be a grow unlike any I’ve done before. I hope I can remember to relax and keep it natural and fun outdoors in the sun
@mulegal Gypsum Home Depot Super Thrive at Walmart, they have it at Home Depot but it’s cheaper at Wallyworld. I must warn you gypsum is very, very heavy, a small bag weighs 40#. I just finished spreading it on my citrus trees, roses are next I use it on every thing. Try one with it and one without it. I do not pinch so I have a much hardier stem and branch system and huge colas that stand upright on their own, and they do not need staking. The main stem was almost 5" diameter
Ohhhh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree…
@elheffe702 The gifts are still unreal and keep givin’ n givin’. I had one 23" cola and several 15" ones. I was blessed for sure out of 8 seeds planted 6 were girls.
That’s amazing! You’re definitely doing something right.
@highcountrygal you sure are doing something right. They are beautiful.
OK, I have access to both WW and home depot.
What strain are those? and did you keep a grow journal? hahaha I think I can learn something valuable here
@mulegal top picture: front green bucket Space Terror II, Space Terror I, Chuckies Goo I, BTY Chuckies Goo II and Grape Angel in the back green bucket. Bottom pic Space Terror I. Not a written journal but in my head. I have started a journal for this yrs winter grow (Beginners/Grow Journal) and will update it on a weekly basis. I spent the whole entire grow season with the gals. I would come out to the yard about 3 times a day(TOO hot) and go over each and every branch and stem, I watered 3 times a day (too HOT) One other extremely important tool for your repertoire if you have problems with cabbage moths and their vile offspring. It is a must and you start to spray and saturate the whole plant religiously on a weekly basis when about 8-10" tall. For it to work the worms have to eat the bacteria so they are alive maybe a day but they die after that. Spraying can be done up to the day of harvest. I’ll post the pic now.
Thanks much@highcountrygal. Don’t know those strains…They look great.
Yes cabbage moths definitely show up here. BT good to know.
HOLY S**T! Must be in a nice warm place. New England weather is no friend of mine.
Thanks so how does it go
