My Journal on Soil & Hydrophobic''s Febuary 14 2016
1.) 2 1/2 gallon jug with spicket
2.) River rock I bought three different sizes
3.) Clear air hose used for fish tanks
4.) Air Tee’s
5.) Air filter’s also used in fish tanks. ( there very hard like rock )
6.) Your soil. This is up to you. I make in own. But seeing how I’m useing a clone you could use soil with nutrients but ivwould mix it up with non- nutrient soil.
7.) Water. I use rain water only with my grows. 1/1/2 gal’s of water.
8.) Air filter pump.
I bought the river rock and a 2 1/2 gal glass jug with a spicket at the bottom of the jar. This spicket will be used to flush the plant if necessary later on durning the journal.
See pic # 1 and # 2 below ( PLEASE NOTE PIC # 1 & 2 ARE THE SAME…OK
At first I was going to go through the spicket with the clear air hose.
But the hose would kink in the spicket not letting air through.
So I decided to run it over the top and down into the jug. I then added a tee to the hose in order to have two air filters at the bottom of the jug.
Then I placed the river rock in the jug mixing them up. I had about 2 1/2 - 3 inches of rock.
See pic # 3
After adding the river rock I took three piece’s of paper towel and cris-crossed them and placed them on top of the rock.
This will help in keeping the soil separately from the river rock.
See pic # 4
I then added my soil. But leave enough room to add your plant.)
See pic # 5
Then I added the water. At first try I had not used enough water so pour it all in there. But pour it slowly.
And thats where I am as of today or last night…lol
This morning I will transplant my Northern Light Clone who is only two weeks old.
I’ll be calling her ( " LONESOME LUCY " ) because she is the only one I’m doing like this right now. But I am growing one Northern Light along with it only in soil. This will help in showing everyone how air and water and soil can produce a better grow ( TIME ) better ( QUALITY ) better ( YEILD ) LESS EFFORT.
We shall see.
