What does the yucca powder do?/ What does it contain? If you don’t mind me asking
Looking beautiful brother still cant believe i never seen this thread before lmao
Most of all it contains saponin which is a natural wetting agent with lots of benefits.
Protects against soil compaction and Increases water penetration, fertilizer uptake, drainage, water intake, root growth
Its also great in compost teas and revitalizing dry soil and peatmoss that doesn’t wanna soak up water
Im really interested in this. Is there any nutitional value in the Yucca?
I shouldve continued reading… lol…
It has some trace nutrients and minerals like potassium, calcium but not really at levels measured fpr feeds but will definitely help feed the microbiology
Thats what im looking for…
@Roadsideorganics.ok learning lots of new stuff I’m gonna try both FPJ and FFJ we’ll see how it turns out
One of the reasons i use it in compost teas
@Firstimer1299 i highly recommended doing ffj/fpj, great cheap n easy way to improve your grow and to get more and honds on understanding of how the whole system works works.
One more thing when do you recommend I start using them?
Like at what growth stage, is 3/4 weeks old good?
Anytime after the seedling stage, low dose around week 3/4 would be perfect
Nice thanks man appreciate the help🤙🏻
No soil digging here.
I rescued her from outdoors (after abandoning to outdoors in May).
Re-veging and from @Labweed, I am on 23/13 ON/OFF lighting.
Seedling, clones, and re-vegers all get the same treatment.
Time shall tell.
I have not concurred soils, yet.
Good growing to you.
Keep us posted, thanks for sharing.
Day 30 update, not a whole lot going on as we just cruise along making progress, still on the same water and pumkin fpj routine until the next topdressing at the end of week 6. Starting to see a little difference between the plants with compost/manure and the control with just recycled soil. I will do a post on that subject here in the next few days
Should have treated EVERYBODY to chemical bath, Jacks’ dead bug or equivalent.
May have avoided my current nightmare, the Aphid invasion.
Aphids are a pain, and if they get out of control a definite nightmare. We use alot of beneficial insects in our greenhouse and out door to deal with them, along with doing my best to keep brix content high so they aren’t as interested to start. I avoid captin jack just because the spinoside can fail commercial testing. Have had alot of success with dr. Zymes and Venerate cg
Wanted to show this over head shot i took the other week show the difference between the plant in straight amended recycled soil and the plant next to it in amended recycled soil WITH rabbit manure added to it. The rabbit manure is showing a bit better nutrient breakdown and uptake. This breakdown and uptake is related to the composting action created by the manure cycling topdressing and other inputs faster.
The plant on the left is the straight recycled soil, plant on the right has the rabbit manure.
Was the rabbit manure processed? Dried and baked? I have access to unlimited supply of rabbit poop, thats why im asking.
It was just raked up up from their dirt floor enclosure and stored in a tub, drying throughout that whole process. That is all that was done. Rabbit manure is very mild, in the sense of being hot with nitrogen, and does not run the risk of burning like many other types of manure that requires a longer process to cool down and finish. I also have a pot with goat manure as well, that was raked straight from their pen and into the pot
