Here is the place for some good compost from time to time its not that great so ask to see a current analysis before you buy! This is the place that most other places who sell compost get their supply from, skip the middle man go straight to the source! Ive purchased yards of their best compost here for 6$ out of season, other places were asking 24-30$ for the same compost made here!!

Yeah, I will definitely be shopping there for some organic amendments for this years outdoor season. Now I just have to compile a nice list of what I will be getting.. I've got some nasty clay soil that definitely needs amending. Lol. I wish I could afford an excavation and a nice dump truck of a rich loam soil. Lol.

Well I wouldnt plant my cannabis in that soil. Amend it and do you veggies in that...For your meds build a soil base and ammend that, (do not use coco). You will be far better off in the long run. Dont worry about diggin holes you can just make a mound and plant right in that. Seen it done many times. Also a method called hugelkultur that is similar but a bit more in depth.  If you wanted to diy, you can rent a bobcat for about 70$ a day in some places. I would dig a long trench 2ft deep and as wide as you want or can afford to fill with your mix. A truckload of compost from natures needs is cheap at the right time of year. They will deliver for free if you buy enough yards of compost..

absolutely killing it man. I'm floored by how fast those plants have taken off. Testament to not only the genetics, but the methods in which they are being grown. Looking into getting a refractometer, should be pretty handy for the homebrew too! Keep it coming man, I'm loving this journal. What was your training method to achieve your canopy?

 What was your training method to achieve your canopy?

 Let it grow. I did nothing to it. I did not top one plant or tie anything. The plants fill in any space were there is  light. Since I built the floor to fit the light footprint the canopy makes itself. I dont top because I dont like unbalanced plants. Topped plants make more buds, but they can only make as much as the food in the soil provides energy for x your light source. So it may appear that you get more with topping but thats not always true, most times its more illusory than anything. Since I didnt top and I have limited space the colas that pack on directly under the light get really big. Thats what I need them to do is stack right where they are instead of branching out everywhere and making smaller bud spots that make more work and give relatively the same yield. 

 

One thing I did do is remove the underbush. Some call it lolipoping I dont care for that term for some reason.. lol, my canopy is flat any thing small and spindly is removed. I dont need to have small loose nuggets stealing energy from my tops. This is my I like 1k watt lights for light penetration into your canopy..Ill show you iin a second what I mean...

I also mulched w perlite about 3" deep.

 

When trimming up branches always remember to sterilze your cutting tools between plants. i use a jar of 99% iso alc to clean my pruning shears or scissors. Always cut the branch back to the base of the main stem where it can heal properly. Nubs of plant material are vectors for mold and infection.

are those bags sitting on pallets?

No they are not.

 

In the begining of the thread I talked about how I built the floor to fit the light footprint. I was going to use pallets but decided against it becuase of cleanliness issues.
