A friend of mine works for High Grade Labs and sent me this. Good information to have! I had no idea Fox Farm was so high in arsenic. Same with the others. Gonna stick to my fish poop.
I think it highlights how polluted the oceans areDamn, this is fascinating. I'd read about the arsenic issues in these fertilizers before, the one that threw me for a loop was the lead content of Coast of Maine Lobster Compost. I've used so much of that stuff over the years.
Anyone else hold lead pellets in their lip for convenience when shooting the old break-action air rifles? Damn I did a lot of unhealthy stuff.What would be "acceptable" levels of those metals? I guess the numbers not highlighted in a shade of red. The lead seems really concerning to me as well.
If you solder electronics, shoot guns occasionally, and use the ones high in heavy metals to grow, lead is something to really look out for since that's 3 areas of high exposure. Thanks for sharing!
Yep. I'm in the same area.This was a major issue here in ne oklahoma, a bunch of the living soil organic guys were failing tests for arsenic, most all of them built their soil with fox farms soils the ocean forest in particular, really doesnt help that our ladies specialize in accumulation of the nasties in the soil
I'd just rather not dump a bunch of it in anything I'm growing in. If none of it is pulled by the plant then how do places fail for heavy metals? It's very common where I'm at, and it's usually always due to fertilizers used. If the plants can't uptake heavy metals, then why do they even test for heavy metals?on a piece of paper and not understanding those metals and such won’t be In ur bud is simply not understanding how so many things won’t allow it to be Intaked . I have been using many organics for veggies and cannabis and not once have I ever failed a contaminate test for heavy metal . Yes I use azomite and rock p and many heavy metals , why didn’t I consume or ah e it in the bud for over 10 years multiple times tested per year ?
humic and many things filter such and like many things can’t be Intaked
