Ingredients this time around are:

Peat Moss, Clay Pellets, Rice Hulls, Carabao Droppings, Worm Castings, Trichoderma, (Mycorrhizal Fungi Stuff) Composted Soil, Azomite, Molasses, Earth Worms, and some other “Secret Ingredients”!

1st I recommend that you make a batch of inoculated Soil and let this “Cook” for a few weeks. Adding some Trichoderma, Mycorrhirza Stuff and a bit of Molasses. Cover this not leaving it in the direct Sun. This will be added to the “pile” later.

You can see the Trichoderma, other Mycorrhizal Fungi that I had previously Added and “Cooked” (Inoculated Soil) as a white “Growth” on the Dirt

Lay out some sort of Ground Cover like a tarp of something to retain your hard work and keep out other possible soil contaminants. This is where we will mix everything together. I inoculate the Rice Hulls a bit and pour these out 1st as they can easily be discerned from the other Ingredients and will allow you to see how well you have “Mixed” your Batch up.

Then pour out the other items and go to work. I do not recommend someone with a Heart Condition taking this on as it is extremely Labor Intensive.

Clay Pellets, Inoculated Rice Hull

The Pictures below are of as I went along. In the end I add a bit of water Prior to covering it all up to once again Cook for a few weeks. You can see the Trichoderma, other Fungi I had previously Added and “Cooked” (Inoculated Soil) as a white “Growth” on the Dirt as it was added into the pile. Pretty Cool Huh?

Azomite. Azomite mineral contains micronutrients that supplement the soil. It also balances the minerals for growth and overall productivity. Constant use of this mineral rejuvenates your soil renewing its potency again.

Some Thai Goodies for the Dirt. Look closely and you will see the Dark Soil on the top of the pile with a white hair like covering. This is the Previously Inoculated Mycorrhizal Soil. It is heavily inoculated and will be mixed in. It will spread out into the mix.

Once Plants disperse roots down into the soil the Mycorrhizal Fungi will attach to them and form a “Symbiotic” (not harmful) relationship with the Plants. Breaking down the various Nutrients and gathering water with the extensive “Hyphae” network they will form. The term mycorrhiza refers to the role of the fungus in the plant’s rhizosphere (it’s root system).

Mycorrhizal fungi produce filaments called “Hyphae” that grow in and around the roots and develop an underground network that helps the plant to acquire mineral nutrients from the soil. In exchange, the fungus receives a place to live and carbon compounds for its own growth. Mycorrhizal Fungi have been found to provide a protective role for plants as well!

Unaided plant roots may be unable to take up nutrients that are chemically or physically immobilized; examples include phosphate ions and micronutrients such as iron. One form of such immobilization occurs in soil with high clay content, or soils with a strongly basic PH. The mycelium of the mycorrhizal fungus can, however, access many such nutrient sources, and make them available to the plants they colonize.

Thus, many plants are able to obtain phosphate, without using soil as a source. Another form of immobilization is when nutrients are locked up in organic matter that is slow to decay, such as wood, and some mycorrhizal fungi act directly as decay organisms, mobilizing the nutrients and passing some onto the host plants; for example, in some dystrophic forests, large amounts of phosphate and other nutrients are taken up by mycorrhizal hyphae acting directly on leaf litter, bypassing the need for soil uptake.

Clay Pellets close up. The Clay Pellets, Peat Moss, Worm Castings and the Mycorrhizal items were the most costly. However absolutely necessary. You want a soil mix that drains extremely well. Cannabis Likes Loamy well draining soil.
It is good to spread everything out to check it has been mixed well. See how I found an area of Inoculated Rice Hulls unmixed!
See where the Previously Inoculated Soil is added.
Yes I grow in pots this time around. The Fellas that brought in the fill for this and the other Farms did not or do not understand that Clay soil from the Bottom of a lake is no good to grow in. I do not have time for “Cover Crops” and Fallowing. In 2024 the Big Players will be allowed in. I plan on being well established by then. I am Feminizing my own Strains and other things before then. It will be to late for them to catch up to me!
First Dirt Mix Piled up. 4 piles of Living Soil like above filled 250, 7 gal pots for me with some left over! I used 1-2 inches of Rice Hulls in each pot to save $ on the soil expenses and it is a great addition to your pots for drainage. The Plants rarely need that portion anyway. The Plants growing up and becoming tall and top-heavy are not a concern as I will be providing support for each plant later on when this becomes necessary.
Then Spread out, Check and Pile it up again>
Then Spread everything out to check the mixing and add a bit of Well water. Never use City Water
Mix everything once again. Check it is not saturated, you want a Damp Mix. Cover and let it rest a few weeks and it will be ready for use! If your mix becomes “saturated” (too wet) you will have created an “anaerobic” mix. All of the good ingredients you previously added cannot thrive in this type of environment, only anaerobic organisms will live there. You will likely begin to notice a “bad smell”. You want to make a Living Soil, that uses Oxygen “aerobic”.

When you water you should not need to use Fertilizer if you have followed my instructions and used the stuff I recommended. And the water should immediately disappear down into your soil. Later you can use fertilizer if you feel it is needed. I recommend using 1/2 of what is recommended by the Manufacturer. For example some ingredients in various Fertilizers may inhibit the Bacteria, Microbes and etc. in your soil. So use less. The Plants will find what they need. You should see 2-4 inches of new growth daily, Minimum.

When Growing Cannabis less is always more!
