Hello everyone! I need some serious help
I am up the Rocky Mountains and i am trying this no till growing stuff and well… i have a few issues. I am also completely new to growing anything besides my dogs lol
Started off with recycled soil, pro mix something. It was flushed and sat for about a month before i cleaned it out. Added the following (all organic stuff)
Fish bone meal
Bio-live (store was out of crab meal)
A dash of epson salt
I prepared each pot at a time, added a bit of pond water (from a natural spring) and cover with black pastic for a week. (Wanted to go longer but i had to make a judgment call with the seedlings-will explain in a bit).
Now for the girls…
I was gifted a Golden Goat which was 8wks old back in March 14th (she is the one that is in bad shape)
I was advice to keep her in veg cycle till end of May due to cold temps up the mountain (i thought this was crazy but…)
I was advice to feed her 1 tbsp of mollases w/10mil of cal-mag and alternate feeding with 1 tbsp of fish fertilizer per gal…
She was doing fine until about a week in a half ago. I will post pictures. Leaves are not looking good. Last week i was adviced to add some tomatoe organic food, so i did. Not much has changed. She is not in the new soil yet. I am waiting to finish the greenhouse to transpant her to new home n keep her outside. I am worried for her though…
Now for the babies…
March 23 I planted my first seed (started her in wet paper towel in a ziplock in dark space-don’t know her name)
April 7 I planted another (jelly sauce)
April 17th planted a few more.
For a total of 7 seedlings.
They were in just plain soil and only got 6.5-6.8ph water when needed. They were doing well, so I thought. Then last two wks I noticed no more growth except for stretching or lagging… after a bit of searching I decided to transplant them into the super soil I made and see if that would help. I also started to introduce them to the outside as the temp is warming up (in shade at first n then natural sun light - indoors at night n still keeping the 18/6 cycle)
The leaves were all looking horrible. Crinkled, different colors and just plain ugly n sad. I think they are making a come back as the leaves look a bit better but I still don’t notice a growth. Maybe bcuz it’s been a few days in their new home. I fed them yesterday just a bit of what I call fish water.
I am planning on making a compost tea in the next few days. I will add all the same stuff I added to the soil with the addition of some super rich stuff frm the creek that has horse manure and natural stuff directly from the earth. I have wood ash n volcanic rock/ash available on the property as well that I am thinking of adding but I am not sure.
Is this something I should feed everyone?
I need to stay as natural as possible. There is just so much information out there that it is overwhelming.
This is the GG that I got at 8wks old back in March. She is in a 7 gallon pot n I am hoping to be able to transplant her to a 15gal depending on advice received.
I have pruned her n topped her and I know she is due for another pruning but I am waiting for next step. I know she is a sativa dominate plant and I’ve heard she can sometimes be hard to grow…
All but one are in new soil (the tallest one, I did not transplant as I thought she looked n was doing good so far) I know she has a bit discoloration in one leave but that is much better. That leave was a complete different color but has bounced back.
I am so sorry for this long post. I don’t want to loose these gals.
Oh, almost forgot. I also have clover crops around the property which I would like to add to the girls. Just don’t know when I should and how.
I also sprayed them with neem oil once last week.
I am greatful for any advice.
