    Default Raised bed and soil build!!!

    Welcome To My World!!!!!

    It?s time to build a raised bed together.
    My tent is 1.2 x 1.2 x 2 m so I?ve build the bed 1.1,x 1.1 x 400 mm approx but I have only filled the soil to around 300 mm max
    I got 35 liter fabric pots or bigger if you can and took them to the dry cleaner and got them to join them up to make a big square then I stapled it to a 2 x 2 frame. I done 3 x 3 legs.


    Then I put a layer of basalt.


    If your in the states you?ll find the ingredients I wanted but the idea is to source local and sustainable as you can.
    The soil mix is as follows:
    1:1:1
    80 liters Aeration) I have used 60 litres growstones gs-2 instead of perlite( this will hold up in the soil a lot better and retain water etc) and 20 litres rice hulls the rice hulls are a great source of silica and organic matter as they eventually breakdown again.
    80 litres peat alternative(moorland gold)
    80 litres from the top layer of my original raised bed which was mainly humus and wormcastings
    But a quality castings or compost will do.

    AMENDMENTS: all per cubic foot(28 liters mix)
    1 cup kelp meal (Acadian is best)
    1 cup neem (Indian wild harvested)
    1 cup crab meal (I had to get a shrimp/prawn mix) it?s crustacean meal were after here but the reason for the crab meal is it adds a good amount of calcium carbonates and some other nutrients also.
    1 cup malted barley (Enzymes, pest control,reduces harvest time, increases thc.)

    Then the minerals: 4 cups per cubic foot
    1/2 cup oyster shell flour(ideally San Francisco Bay Area ideally)
    1/2 cup oyster shell crushed
    1 cup gypsum
    2 cups volcanic rockdust or 50/50 rockdust and pumice if you can find the pumice.i would even put basalt in too if I could find it fine enough.

    I added humate/Humic powder into the mix aswell as directed plus 300 grams of mycorr max


    This was left for two weeks then I planted a mixed cover crop of alfalfa,fenugreek,hemp flax and quinoa it was all I had but we will go into the cover crops a lot more in the organic section aswell as here.

    Then this grew for a couple weeks and got chopped then I added a load of leaves and trim from making bubblehash and planted a cover crop again

    You?ll see another top dress of neem here too for the pest!
    I put 6 ladies in there on the 27 November

    I added one more lady into the mix so there?s seven in there now I?ll run through them later this was on the 8th this month

    And I tied them down a bit last night not thinking about watering because I haven?t got the blumats set up ffs.

    Gotta figure out how to save this so I can find it when I am ready for a try.
    Is this a water only grow or do you add teas?
    Do you watch the PH of the water?
    Thanks!

    The blumats are a gravity fed watering system using little ceramic carrot shaped pce’s that go in the soil and release water as the soil dries out keeping it the perfect moisture.

    Hey CD, I’m not sure yet mate it is built to last now with water only but a tea here and there won’t hurt!
    I won’t use any feed teas so to say like alfalfa or kelp I’ll only do a tea with microbes to maximise the microbe colonies making what’s in the soil already available more or I’ll do a malted barley tea with some coconut and aloe Vera for a special treat.
    Thanks for stopping in people, enjoy the show

    OM is pretty much right mate you do need a couple hours to fuck about and tbh I wouldn’t bother with a single pot, I’m not even bothering this time round mate, I have already flooded downstairs twice once with the blue mate and once with the humidifier few

    Perfect thanks man, how much of each in 10 litres of soil mate ? And do I need to let it cook or just add and use straight away.

    Many thanks for this Redz
