The product doesn’t treat mould, it innoculates against it, reducing the risk.
Thanks for all the good info peeps :v:

I really need to learn a program of natural preventatives instead of corrections after the fact. You know preventative maintenance, like on a car before it breaks.

Healthy living soil promotes healthy plants healthy plants are more resistant to bad things.
Things such as Neem cake incorporated into the new soil ends up in the plants matrix via the soil and helps the plants resist bugs etc.
Same as humans if they have a healthy gut biome and feed their critters well they too will be more resistant to “bugs” and sicknesses and so on…

The more I learn about living soil, the more it is starting to make sense to me. My soil already has neem cake and all the other good stuff, I kind of fluked onto it, before I knew how good the base compost really was.

The Sisters have taken well to their new environment. They have already been trained once this week, but are begging for more.

Yea after awhile things too for me became clearer as I read and watched more about mother nature’s processes that’s she’s been perfecting for longer than we can imagine!

Here is a post that also helps clarify things…hope it helps

Growing this way has streamlined all the stuff for me that others need to do/check when using man made nutes and sterile/semi sterile growing medium…PPM…water to run off…flushing…Ph run off checking and all that extra work just goes away but I’m glad I did it in the beginning to have an understanding of that process just in case needed if issues arise.

Mankind keeps trying to reinvent the wheel through “Better Living Through Chemistry) and keeps getting flat tires

Mother Nature rules!

More training, cause I know she needed it.
I’ll do a full update on Sunday.

GL - Post training.

You have probably said it, but how big is that tent?

BTW the sisters are looking nice.

Couldn’t find same one, mine is Secret Jardin. Not bad, just needed some reno’s to make it functional.

Thanks. I was trying to picture how big those plants were, but it was hard without knowing the interior dimensions you are working with.

I am American though, so I did have to do some conversions to feet and inches in order to visualize it in my head.

You made math happen. And I’m high, so I cheated and had google do it.

Cool tent.

Agreed, Mother Nature knows best.

Plants are roughly 2 feet (60cm) across circumference, soon they will need to be separated and given half the grow space each, which would 4 x 4. As it is an 8 x 4 veg/flower section. (appreciate you doing math, especially when high :joy:)
Yes I’m going to grow 1 plant each in a
4 x 4 area without scrog, but attempt to train for similar effect/finish (I know, too ambitious for my first grow).
We live and we learn, if we’re not learning we’re not living. :v:

It looks like you are right on track to nail it.

GL - Week 11/8 veg.

The Sisters had a bad day yesterday, I came home from work on a stinking hot day and Mrs Enlightened had forgotten to check tent temp for me…
Tent was 32°C (90F) :face_with_symbols_over_mouth:

Anyhow, my loupe still hasn’t arrived,
but, silver lining (maybe)…
Does this look familiar to anyone?



I have discovered through trial and mainly error, that Gold Leaf does not like anything over 28°C (84F) and does not like high humidity (80%). I am not certain if that would apply to all GL or just mine (thought it was interesting enough to document)

Choc - (Week 9/7 veg)

If GL is yin, Choc is yang, she isn’t bothered by heat, cold or humidity, she is a tank, from the moment she sprouted, she has displayed accelerated growth, she was germinated under QB LM301H at 50% (120W)
For anyone who wasn’t here at the start.


I have ceased watering schedule, instead I water until they droop now. I have also raised lights (26") to induce upward growth.

And of course, now that I am home to monitor, temp/RH is almost perfect.

Clones strike back, they are starting to look healthy.

Interesting fact no 3. Both aloe clones have 2 main stems (which I will manifold) and both Clonex only have 1? (LST)

Good vibes, keep it green :v:

I finally splurged on a new glassy, got sick of the manky old plastic and steel. The tar catcher works well and gives a nice clean high.

I need to get a good bong to take some nice rips off but its hard to beat using your mom’s glass bong. Hahahaha

I’ve always loved glass bongs. For me, it’s the best way.
My glass always breaks. My One Love bong broke last weekend. I had one that lasted 7 years until the saltillo tile shattered it.

When it broke I ordered two back up glass steamrollers. They last longer for me before they die. I get these big hits off em. It’s like they hit like bongs without the water. I miss water bong hits already.
