Questions What should I feed these now?
I have moved to organic as many of you know, and the crops always go pretty well until about four weeks into flower. They start to get hungry.
This I think is from a magnesium def, which I'll spray the plants with Epsom salt to fight that, and a PK deficiency.
These plants haven't been fed at all other than what is in the soil. But they are getting hungry now. Any organic soil growers able to recommend how I can keep the plants happy here, but only using organic ingredients. I don't want to use any salt based nuits or anything out of the bottle
Have you tried the Ecothrive stuff? You can topdress lifecycle and charge and use the biosys tea to add food.
Tried their microbe tea a long time ago and heard the life cycle is good. I use fish blood and bone with potash right now, I'm thinking I could use those, but not sure of the amount I should top dress with
lots swear by the ecotrive life cycle , i do myself tbh remember my 4 month cockup lol it was the only thing that saved the girls in the sohum, on a different note im going back to the soil again for the next grow. give it another go for old times sake lol

I use Biobizz nutes, they're organic too. But they might not be very cost efficient, they recomment using Bio Grow in flower along with Bio Bloom and Top Max, so there will likely be better things out there to work with rather than having to buy 3 different bottles of nutes 🙂
In the corridors of power where the talks are in full swing
If you can't say it with flowers Then don't say anything
To avoid bottles and dry feeds that will take 2-3 weeks to be plant available you could make some natural farming inputs ..
A FPJ (fermented plant juice) to provide any needed N and an FFJ (fermented fruit juice) to provide needed K
These take a week to 10 days to make and are immediately plant available so will still act quicker than dry amendments
You can also make plant available calcium with egg shells and vinegar
Chris Trump is one go to guy to learn about natural farming inputs .. there are many others too if you decide to continue that route
making own inputs is sustainable, good for environment local and international, affordable, highly effective as you will harness the power of indigenous microbes … and extremely satisfying!
I have also used nutrients from RAW which are soundly sourced (humic acid/ phosphorus/ potassium) as I have also experienced the same running short on food last few weeks of flower.
The easiest in some ways to prevent this issue in to use bigger pots to start (40L +) something I can’t do in my loft so I’m stuck with my 30L’s atm and using the techniques above
I will also use bio bizz range too as this is the least salt based bottled feeds I know of - much of there range is made from plant material and other organic materials
Good luck with em and happy growing bro
Time to pop some more beans 😗
