Organic questions for sannie

Just leave the roots in there and don't stir them up, this because the mycorrhiza is colonized on these roots and when stirring up the chanes will be broken, it can take weeks to colonize again.

The roots will be used as nutrients by the soil life, the best slow release nutrient you can have.

I know this post is somewhat old, yet after growing on mapito I wanted to try soil again after a long time. I found this topic quite astonishing, reading all the insights that sannie shared with us. However, departing from an amateur knowledge I have a few more questions.

As Sannie writes that the roots should not be stired up because it damages the mycorrhiza colonies, I was wondering whether you just cut them stem out from the pot while leaving all the rest as it is?

After you  just put the new plant in the pot on to the hole and cover it with some new soil, plus watering with some bacto right?

It would be great if someone could help me out with some info on that because I'm a bit lost... Especially Sannie himself (I would highly appreciate it)

happy sunday everyone

Hello,Mordanius thank's for sharing this good news (3rd place Sativa Flowers in Alaska's 2018 High Times ).

You grow big monster,how long do you veg them before change for 12/12 ? I plan to start first organic grow with Sannie's starter kit strain Kolossus.

Have good vibes.

Thank's.

Hei Sannie!

A question about automated watering systems that can be used with your organic kit. Would underwatering like octopots and autopots work with buffer tablets?

How about using the 4 step program with coco? Can it be watered daily with nutes until run-off as one would normally water with non organic ferts? Or am I better off just doing it with soil?

Do you personally use some watering system with your organics?

 

Best regards

Hi sannie

I am growing first time you're way, awesome actually. The result until now, day 22 bloom. What i am looking for is a replacer for the bac bloom and pkbooster, i use now agriton a+ cane sugar molasses, what else to use instead of the 2 BAC products?

Thx n advance

Grtz

Hey Sannie,

i am using the 4 steps, with canna pro plus soil, and i am using this method since about 7 or 8 years. I noticed an issue on my last grows:

My plants are perfectly healthy in veg and at the beginning of bloom. I start the 12/12 in 11L pots with 1, 1,5 or 2 tabs regarding the strain. They start to bloom very nicely, with a nice shiny green, really well fed. I go only with pure rain water, 0,1g of bacto every 15 days, every 2 waterings I water with 1ml/l of yucca.

i don’t use any bac bloom for the first 4 weeks of 12/12, only rain water + sometimes bacto and yucca, but I see tips burn appear around week 3 or 4 of 12/12. I don’t understand what it comes from, for me it is some kind of over feeding. And I see it on different strains. Could you explain what it is? Is it related to soil life?

 

Another question: is there a need to use BAC PK booster with Bac bloom and your 4 steps program?

 

greetz!

Hey Hempy,

could you explain? Do you think it is related to temperatures or air flow or ?

temps are around 25°C, moisture 45/50%, air flow is very good (I have 2 windows open and good fresh air supply). 

May be it is my rain water? The sea is at 500m from my house. NaCl in rain water?

Tips burn increase when I start the bac bloom at 1ml/l.

 

another question: what is in perfect start?

normally i grow in 1 gal pots till they show sex then transplant females to 3 gallon smart pots.  with buffertablets would i start with 1 one tablet in the 1 gallon conatiner and add additional tablets to the 3 gallon bag when i transplant?  i dont normally veg long after transplant, a week or so for the plant to recover.  or are the buffer tablets mainly for vegging.

Hi,

It is related to the soil you are using and to the plants you are growing . Is It light mix that you are using? With light mix and most of indica or balanced indica / Sativa hybrids You can use half a tab in the 1gal pot when you switch to 12/12 and when you transplant her to 3 gallons you use one tab more or 1 and half. Tabs work perfectly for veg and the first half of boom time.
