My jars of ganja are close to being empty, so I had to get going again.

The setup has remained unchanged. For the people that are not familiar with it: two cabinets, per cabinet two 600 Watt lamps and a soil container filled with organically fertilized soil and a lot of animals.

The soil containers have been supplemented with some extra soil on top of the old soil. The containers now hold about 650 litres per container.
I am still terrible at making high quality pictures and I still use a crappy camera.

This the cabinet on the right. In the back there are four Amnesia Hazes, after that you see three Kolossus. The five plants to the right are JackBerries and the other nine plants are MadBerries.

This is the cabinet on the left. You are mainly looking at Gorilla Glue #4 plants, but there were a lot of really bad clones in this batch. In the back of the cabinet a lot of them died. I replaced two spots with 24K Gold plants.

The yellowness that you see is from the lamp that I use when I make photographs.

Looking good! If i understand correct, you are using 2 x 650 liters of soil for 2400 watts. Isn't that a little overkill?

Hamme Hydro: Overkill? No man. One can never have too much soil in one's soil container haha! On a serious note: yeah it probably won't be colonized by roots as a whole, but well.. I don't care!

Hey Saxo: great to have you here again! Hoping for a great run as well.

I agree, never too much soil. It may be difficult to keep it within the parameters the plants like, but as long as the soil is good the plants should thrive. The roots can grow freely without barriers, one of the benefits of running hydro, a lot of root mass is a small area/pot.

Understand the nitrogen cycle.

There is a thing of having too much soil. Soils just not sitting there ready to be used it is an active environment full of life. You should not look at it as a bunch of reserve. When you water you begin the process if starting that life and the nitrogen cycle.

A handful of worm castings a bit of guano and some compost on top should keep you healthy.

Everything is about balance.
I say Jah Bless. I say this I ask for blessing in all that I do and blessing to all those who take time to read me. If it causes a person issue, understand my meaning and I wish you well under whatever view or belief. To be simply happy and Joy in your heart is all I hope and mean!

Thanks hidronesia

I agree with you that everything is about balance. I think I have added a nice balance of nutrients to the soil. I am not very familiar with the practical implications of the nitrogen cycle. I understand the concept though. One question remains in my head though, I hope you can answer it Hempyfan:

Does the mineralization of nitrogen by bacteria in the soil not happen to all kinds of nutrients that are in there?
