Mega Crop

Seeing more deficiencies than usual since I switched to MC 2 part

I now believe the mega crop I first started using, and today’s megacrop and ownership and totally different.

My personal opinion after using the 2-part is it's complete garbage. If someone lived close enough to pick them up, I'd gladly give them all of the bags I have. If shipping cost wasn't a concern, or the time it would take to box it all up and ship it, I'd offer them all up to anyone here. At this point, they're most likely heading to the garbage can in the coming days once I start cleaning out the room.

The best thing that came out of that mega crop 2 part was nudging me to make the switch to organic.

I would be lying if I said I didnt agree with you guys at least a little bit. I can't seem to shake the feeling that something has been off since I made the switch.

I have been considering making a move away from Green Leaf altogether, and also intersted in possibly going organic... Im looking into the OEM (OrganicEastGardener) Method. Admittedly I dont know enough about the process yet but I see some pretty impressive results from the guys that run it on IG...

I was looking into the oeg method as well. I have all of the veg amendments, I just need to get some pro-mix hp
Couple screen shots I took a while back

Organics...you just have to really resist the urge to use the 100 pounds of dry salts you have....and its not easy.

But after finishing a couple in organics...I think i might sell all my salts. And just switch completely to 100 % organic in everything.

You can do it as simply as organic living soil with water feeds and every 2 weeks a top dress (Stepwell and Gaia offer great products...there are a few).

Your yield will be less...but the flavor and terp profile are un matched.

And organics are a lot more gentle on the envoriment (when you dump your old soil in the yard), and better for you!

Dooo eeett..

I dont regret it. And i will do my best to get better at understanding how to feed my soil, the soil web and how it impacts various aspects of growth. But you can harvest healthier plants....easier with organic inputs.

And then teas...they are pretty simple.

5 gallon bottle....bubbler....1/2 cup of
Barley Grain ground...or Kelp or Alfalfa.....bubble 24 hours and pour on plants.

i have to remember i grow for me sometimes. The plant does not have to get 8 oz in a 5 gallon pot. Coco is big ! but it is not better.

I ended up adding Barley, kelp, neem, and soft rock phosphate in this last batch to see how that works. If it presents any issues, I’ll revert back to the basic organic recipe I started with that has been working without issue so far.

Per cubic foot, I’m trying;
1 cup kelp
1/2 cup barley
1/2 cup neem
1/4 cup soft rock phosphate

in addition to the basic recipe.

Organic and non organics, your gonnea need this

Your lacking your fulvic and humic on your organic list Inless your using bottled or adding it onto your rez. Ethier way wanted to add that as a tip. Good info if people want general reason why you use fulvic and humic and why it’s so beneficial



too many times companies want to sell you ethier humic or fulvic, it really should be both and correct rates

this product is great and my last 4lb last me almost 2 years (using it drench on outdoors and indoors )



EFFECTS ON SOIL: Increases micro flora up to 2000 times in 15 days;

Increases total cationic exchange;

Makes aggregates in soil produce better oxygenated penetration;

The nutrients will remain in solution thanks to its sequestering and colloidal properties.”



great foliar + drench
