Hey everyone it sounds like the majority of the product testers have received their silica from @HarvestGoldSilica , so we've agreed to do a big communal product test thread for the testing and will share in the experience and results together!

Appreciate everyone that is taking part in the testing and looking forward to seeing what kind of results this will produce!

well I got up early today before my back pain started to hurt and I filled up 3 fabric pots with super soil and the top half of the pots with potting soil and planted the seeds that were ready to be planted that I was germinating

I still have 2 more seeds germinating that need to be planted but wanted to wait until tomorrow to let the tap roots get a little bit longer before I planted them

out of the 3 autos I planted today 2 of them got some Harvest Gold Silica added to the pots and marked the pots what I did was after I filled the pots with the super soil and potting soil I mixed the Harvest Gold Silica in to the top 3 inches of my soil

I have a 2’7″ wide x 4’11” deep x 6’7″ tall GrowLab gl80l grow tent with a 315w prism lighting science ceramic metal halide aka cmh the bulb is a Philips elite agro 315w cmh 3100k bulb there is a 6 inch inline fan and 6 inch carbon filter blowing air out a window

there is also a 4 inch inline fan I will be using as a active air intake and a 16 inch hurricane wall mount fan I strung up near the top of the tent just to keep the air moving

I have another 315w prism lighting science ceramic metal light that I will be used in my closet I will be growing a photo period plant with but for now I will be vegging the seed with the autos until they get bigger

this grow i will be testing a product called harvest gold silica I added it to 2 of my autos I just mixed some with the soil when i was making my pots super easy

I got a few different seeds in this grow

1x sweet seeds - cream mandarin xl auto (harvest gold silica added)
