Im currently growing in 100% Coco Coir but will be Switching to No-Till after my current batch is done as i will only be growin Landrace strains which are an can be Very Sensitive which is the Main reason why i want switch to No-Till Besides being it being a all natural way of growing, I will be using 5 gallon fabric pots and BigRoots soil, However I do wanna add worms to the soil but im not sure how much worms i should add or what worms work best. If someone with NO-Till experience could help a homie out i would Greatly appreciate it an im sure the ladies will also when the time comes
@warkat was doing a heap of studying regarding this whole topic so this could be right up his alley buddy. I’m sure @fRIEDfRED was dabbling as well. I’ve tagged the guys so they should be along for a chat shortly
I am not an expert! But curious about No-till. In pots? It could work?
@Budbrother maybe can help, a guru in organics. Check his journal also.
Anytime buddy, I knew there was a heap of the guys out there but their names escape me
Red Wrigglers cover the top of the pots
European Night Crawlers go deep in pots
Numbers, a couple dozen of each. Worms self regulate their population size by available food n resources.
Alright thanks homie, Should i mix them in the soil before i put the soil in pots or dont matter?? Thanks again man @Budbrother
After pots filled. Before or after adding a mulch layer
Alright dope bruh, im plannin on using organic straw so i know they will enjoy that ,i tried learn as much as i could from the Mendo Dope Homies jus wanted make sure i knew what to do when time comes which should be in bout 2 1\2 months so not to far away.
Almost forgot to ask but what bout african nightcrawlers??
Don’t know man
Should give you some good insight @DaDankman
Thanks for sharing @Davyg, but I want to caution that I’m really new to growing so lots of what is in my journal is still experimentation (#guessing).
That said, I see the discussion above is about worms and the conclusions from what I’ve read are (a) mixing species is totally fine, (b) that worms will self regulate themselves in terms of population (means they’ll reproduce if you only start with a few…) and © they will behave differently in different pot sizes, soils, etc. so in the end I threw in a few from my vermicompsting bin and called it a day.
On this one, let me know if you’re starting a journal?? I would love to keep up with you!
I would suggest this as key reading. Not so much to use all the stuff he’s endorsing, but to understand how things can be used to build and then amend the medium along the way…
My goal is to use the same soil in the same pot for as long as possible.
I hear you buddy. Non of us are experts and some if us like yourself are pioneers and the only way to learn is by trying out your own ideas or theories and possibly suggestions from like minded souls. That’s the main reason I tagged. Shared knowledge and experience, particularly first hand is an amazing way to learn. Keep blazing the trail
@DaDankman i dig it you check out the Mendo Dope Boys. Im tracking down there Locomotion for next summer. If you want giant plants look into Saphire OG. It will blow your mind! What state are you in?
