Get ready as The Dude & Scotty real talk some serious grow.
Look out every Monday for a new hour of grow talk at 4:20. Come get
blazed with us and talk about growing some serious dank. This week
we will be talking...
Grow Talk Questions:
1.From: El Diablo: 12:00
build a soil Dear, Sir Dude & Mr. Real, I tried to order
**Vital Earth Manna-Mix** at my local grow shop. But It seems Vital
Earth is having problems with distribution. Sunlight Supply's has
discontinued Vital Earth Manna Mix and will No longer be carrying
it. I contacted my local grow shop and Vital Earth, here's the
reply emails from both. Just a heads up it could be hard to find
vital earth manna-mix in the future for some grows. Are there any
other pre-mixed growing medium/soil that you would recommend since
Manna-Mix is not available. Or should I just start mixing my own.
Is it hard to mix large batches of soil and have a reliable and
consistent product. If so could you do a show about mixing your own
soil and some good soil mix recipes or any other special tips you
may have. I really enjoy the science of growing and would like to
find a well-balanced top-shelf organic soil mix. Thanks for
all your Help & Hard Work.... Have a Wonderful Day!!!!
- From JD: Am I right that products
which advertise their ability to "sweeten" our buds with carbs (eg.
bud candy, sugaree, botanicare sweet, or floranectar) are a
complete scam? They are all mostly made up of sugars like fructose
and sucrose which are way too big to pass the plasmallema and enter
the plant. If they enhance flavor at all, it is only because
they also contain a little sulfur, which can be obtained cheaply
from epsom salts. These large sugar molecules don't even
effectively feed the microbes in the soil which really only eat
glucose/molasses. In my opinion, the molasses bundled in
Recharge is all the sugar your root zone will ever need.
- From Eddie: Got to say I'm digging
the 3 show days a week. Questions on Pre-ripening And
ripening nutrients. Ladies are in the beginning of week 4 of
flowering and I know that's perfect for pre-ripeness. So I have got
Mendocino Avalanche from Real Growers and know to use this in wk
5,6 and 7 and I also have Canna PK13/14 an Canna Boost what would
guys use? Would love to get your 2 opinions on all this. My steak
and potatoes are Canna A&B, Silica, Bio-Cozyme,and fish oh and
of course RECHARGE that I'm about to cut out really soon. Growing
in A Coco soil mix. Thanks for being ther for all of us.
- From NY-Mike: How
much yellowing is normal towards the end of flowering? Around week
five I began to yellow on two of eight plants. While watering I
trimmed the extremely yellow leaves. Literally the next day the
other six showed signs of yellowing. Mainly just on large fan
leaves. Yellowing has continued all around but bud growth and
maturing seems fine. Now right at week seven yellowing is reaching
the larger leaves on some bud leaves. I feed a little nitrogen at
week five and some buds have seemed to swell a lot more then others
which looks great but is pumping massive amounts of white hairs.
Where others are turning red.
The yellowing never looked dangerous. More so reminded me of leaves
turning naturally in fall. Its my first grow though.I plan to water
my bloom nutes and molasses next watering then switch to final
flush in preparation for harvest.I need to get a magnifying glass
but everything looks really dank and smells extraordinary. Two
phenos I have clones to keep as mother's smell literally like gummy
- From Capn: First run with rock
nutrients. Used only their one part fusion bloom, florablend,
calimagic, and over drive. And recharge of course.I can't complain.
Looks just as frosty as any other run I've done with GH,
Dutchmaster, or advanced.
- Hey Scotty, I spoke to you via email
about getting some recharge up in Canada. I suffered a broken heart
as I was driving and heard you answer my question on one of the
episodes, saying you wont be shipping up to CA. Similar feeling to
a childhood crush telling you she didn't like you back.
I'm in Winnipeg and I'm having a lot of trouble finding any
Beneficial bacteria in any hydro stores or nurserys.
I'm Growing in coco/perlite with Calmag, Silica and
Hygrozyme. Also using up the rest of my jungle juice before I get
some Canna. Will the salty nutes be an issue for the bacteria to
the point where its not worth using? I appreciate any help u can
give. Absolutely love the show. Especially the new format.
- I was wanting to get your guys opinions, about these **Root
Routing Pots**. I am currently using a standard 7gal nursery pot.
But I am wanting to upgrade my pots to a 10gal air-prune root pot.
So the only two options I have found are the Fabric Smart Pots and
these Plastic Nursery **Root Routing Pots**. The reason I'm
thinking of going with the Root Routing Pot is you can reuse them
multiple times. I know you can reuse the fabric Smart pots but
there such a pain to wash. Do you think I'll get the same
performance from the Root Routing Pot as you receive from a smart
pot? Or Do you think I should just stick with a standard nursery
pot. What type of disadvantages do you foresee with the use of
these Root Routing pots?
8. Hey fellas whats
growin on!! Dudes I'm hearin a buzz about Bio Char. My question is
does the carbon break down and
become available to the plant in a container situation or is this
amendment more for long term garden type soil? Wats up?
