Organic Super Soil Recipe, by TempleGrower
Can Bat Guano replace Blood Meal in this mix?
I value your wisdom TG you seem to love what you do and have alot of knowledge! Humbling to know that I can use this recipe of yours if I chose to make organic soil! Thanks heaps for sharing!
Hey @TempleGrower hope you are well.
I currently have 6 plants, all growing in TempleGrower super soil. Thus far they are without doubt the best I've grown. I'm particularly enjoying the simplicity of growing in soil as opposed to what I experienced with coco. Long may it continue 😁
Question for you if you will. Do you treat the plants to a Epsom salt foliage feed as a matter of course or rely on that incorporated in the soil ?
Thanks in anticipation 👍
Time to grow old disgracefully.
Hey man, glad it's working out for ya! Always awesome to hear that 🙂
As for the ES query - you are correct! I don't like to foliar feed tho - I find it leaves spots all over the foliage and is just messy. My methodology is usually to start supplementing the irrigation water with 1 tsp (~5mL) of Epsom Salts at around 5-6 weeks, regardless whether you're still in beg or have begun flowering, and then continuing with that once every 2-3 waterings until flowering is complete. Unless you see an actual Mg deficiency... then up it to 2 tsp with every watering until morale improves.
There is some Mg in the dolomitic lime in the soil but it's quite slow release. The DL is for pH buffering mostly anyways and so shouldn't be relied on as a primary source of Mg.
I don't see why not.. just try to keep the same ratios.. i.e., if blood meal has 12% N and guano also has 12%, you can use the same amount. If the guano has 24% N, use half has much as the blood meal, since it's twice as strong, for example. And so on and so forth. Time for some math! 🤓
Thanks for the recipe. Do you use this mix straight or use in in just a third of the pot and then top up.with normal as sub cos recipe says?
Thanks for this guys
I think i might try this now this time around 🤔 👌
Great guide, great read! Thank you TempleGrower!
Be the change you wish to see when opportunities come knocking, you be ready to dance for it could be a long night for prohibition to awake from a centuries sleep.
Hello there thank you for this recipe l! I’m trying to create my own super soil ,but I remember someone mentioned coco peat was no good for living soils. What can I use ? As I make all my own compost, and peat moss is a no go for me...
