New Journal Organic Coco vs Jacks 321 Nutrients

These Are GSC and Sour Diesel and Bruce Banner LSD Clones. I am super excited about this grow. It does have a small price tag for switching to organic growing. Worm Castings 1-0-0 Compost Down To Earth Nutrients. Bio Live 5.4.2 Vegetable blend 4.4.4 Kelp Meal 1-0.1-2 Alfalfa meal 2.5-0.5-2.5 Langbeinite 0-0-22 Fish Bone Meal 3-16-0 Insect Frass 2-2-2
I probably spent around 150 for all the Nutrients. But positive side it will last me a good couple years. I am very excited i have always grown with bottle nutrients. Tried different stuff i have done General Hydroponics. Current Culture and Botanicare I will be posting pictures tomorrow. They are just small seedlings so nothing super exciting.

thanks for the tag ray. can’t wait to see how this works out. my initial guess, considering i have a doctorate in obviousity is that the coco will grow faster and the organic will taste better but will be neat to follow the comparison.

3.5 grams of bubble hash can’t wait for it to dry

The Jack’s nutrients were really good price wise. I got 1 kilo or 2.2 lbs of part a &b they ran 25 bucks. 12.5 each. Then Epsom Salts were 9 so that is good. Compared to the 150 I spent on all the organic nutrients. They will last a couple years but it was a big price tag.

Ok guys can you help me out with my bubble bags for hash. I do not have the 5 bag system I only have 3 bags the black bag is 25micron the purple bag is 73 micron and the green is 220 micron. Would the order be 220 bottom 73 middle the 25 the first. The higher the micron the tighter the holes right? I think I did it wrong. I went 25 220 then 73 I got 4 grams of hash in the 220, but nothing went threw to the 73.

Pretty sure you would go from the top largest holes to the bottom smallest holes…straining things… I’ve not done it but did stay at a Holiday Inn Express …man rates are cheap these days

100 micron is finer then the 600 micron . They measure the holes in the mesh in microns, so the higher the number the larger the holes.

Thanks for the tag. I’m definitely set to watch. I’m wanting to get away from bottled nutes myself. I’m set to watch and learn :v::green_heart:

Dude! Look up “Dry Ice Kief” on Youtube.

Once you do dry ice you will never do bubble hash again. 73 micron bag only, 1/2 pound of dry ice in the bag with flower and shake over a sheet of glass. Yields are better if anything and you can smoke it right there. You can shake and sort, watching for color change etc. It really is infinitely superior. Assuming you can get dry ice…

But to answer your question; 220 inside the 73 micron inside the 25 micron.

I have done dry sift before i always do different things depending on my mood. I am lazy and money is really really tight and i didnt feel like spending 17 bucks on a block of dry ice. Maybe next run i will get dry ice. Or make a butter or run it all as oil.

Shoot; I buy $3 worth and do an ounce or so of kief with dry ice left over.

I like dry ice sift also i just went with the traditional way this time. This is part of the reason i like to grow so much. Besides the fun of gardening there are tons of stuff you can do with Trim and Nugs Bubble Hash Dry Sift Hash Oil and Flowers. Who knows what is next i may run it all as oil or dry sift or maybe make bubble hash. What ever you like to make or experiment with is totally up to you as long as you aren’t getting Dirt Weed (garbage) Have Fun and Stay Safe.

@GreenJewels Now this should of went up at the top and what i have done to make the switch over to organics. Besides buying all the Nutrients. This is what i have done up to this point. I made a compost tea that consisted of 1 cup of compost ( i have lobster compost) 1 cup of Worm Castings. 2 tbls of Bio Live 5-4-2 1 tbls of Insect Frass 2-2-2 1 teaspoon of both Alfalfa 2.5 .05 2.5 and Kelp 1-.01-2 meal I put that all in a bag in a 5 gal bucket of water i added 20 ML of Pineapple Rush from General Hydroponics. Most people would use Molasses but i didn’t buy it because i have alot of left over sugars from my last few seasons. The sugars are for the Microbes to feed on and multiply along with the composts and nutrients that are in the tea. I let that bubble for 24 hours You can tell its working the next day you will see foam on the top of the bucket of tea/water. Then i dumped into the water 1 gal of Bio Char. Biochar has a ton of surface area for the microbes to call home. I am usings 5 gal pots and the ratio is 1:5 so that is why i used 1 gal of biochar. What this does is jump start the medium, inoculating the bio char so all the microbiology have a home. A lot of people make their mix and let it sit for a few weeks/months to let it cook.

I am doing two different methods of organics 1 really simple and that is just using 2 nutrients. 1 pot will have everything biochar, bio live, insect frass, kelp, alfalfa, azomite compost and worm castings. i call it the kitchen sink mix.
The other pot will be really simple coco and Vegetable Blend by Down To Earth. It is 4-4-4 and when i switch to flower i will be re amending it with Rose and Flower Blend that is 4-8-4
I have been following Mr Canucks Grow and he did it this way and got amazing results and the kitchen sink recipe came from my friend Matt over at Photosyntech

The jacks is a little different to follow its a 321 formula but it goes by weight. 3.6 grams of Part A 2.4 of Part B and 1.2 of Epsom Salts. So you need a scale to use if you follow exactly how its lade out. I wish i could just use a 3 teaspoons of A 2 teaspoons of part b and 1 teaspoon of epsom salts. I am sure this would work and be the same but i am following the recommended weights per gallon. Make sure you have a cup and set a tare for the calcium nitrate they are little round balls and roll around if you just try to put on the scale lol.

Thanks @Rayofsunshine I love the way you explain everything and what it’s for. Makes it a lot easier to understand and remember. I’ve been checking out build a soil videos. I have so much used happy frog, I’m going to re amend it using build a soils kit and that will be my start.
What size container will be your final home? I understand it’s recommended to go as large as possible.
