Hecno's on going organics

  • Good morning everyone! So I spent the day installing and upgrading a new add-on for AFN that effects our vendor and breeder forums. It's the same setup that we are using on High of the Tiger, but we didn't realize it would effect members a bit differently here on how it's been received.

    The major benefit of the add-on is that it allows breeders/vendors a global calendar (that they add their own events to,) a group media gallery, group discussion area, an information/about tab, and a few other goodies that should make the experience overall a better one.

    One major caveat to point out, the new groups (where you see the overlay) unfortuantely *REQUIRE* you to join them in order to post in them. This is done by design of the software (and I understand why,) however it's been requested to see if we can circumvent this somehow. I will inquire to the developer to see if it's an option available or one that can be added to future versions. So to be clear, you MUST JOIN the group to be able to post and reply, even if your existing threads were there before. We apologize for this minor inconvenience but it's a one-time deal and then it's back to business :-)
  • Hey we're testing out our new Raffle/Giveaway software and wanted to invite you all to try it out with us for a chance to win a Smokin' Screws pipe screen!

    This will be for USA-based growers only (to start,) and the only requirements are 25 minimum post count to put in an entry (which you can do once per hour!)

Howdy all . Well I am going to start this as a home thread as I will be a bit time short in the up coming months and it will be easier from me . Now you remember the Curly Grubs , well I have been studying up on the fat little buggers to see if I can use them to my benefit .

So what I have done is set a side one of my dirt boxes I have 3 around 200 ltr each . I recycle the soil with bits and pieces which I will get to another time . Here is a bit of a run down on what attracted me to the bug , remember when I found those pellets , also I have what I call robber roots

What are robber roots , Well there is no getting a way from them .They are the native trees that are all around me , I have moved my dirt boxes to the least likely spot but they will still be there . This is where the Curly Grub comes into the party . They will eat all the lovely roots and leave me some real nice castings , so every time I find one now , into the box it goes , with the volume of soil I have they will have a home for at least 9 months . As you have seen by the size of them I should get a nice amount of castings in the soil . Which should give me some real good organic life happening in the soil . :thumbsup:

Yeah, some nice big logs there for the fire. :haha:

I like your life of the grub graphic there. I guess any hibernating grubs in your soil is okay, so long as the beetles don't emerge and lay eggs in your pots ... ?

Did you get any damage this way last run ? I might have missed that post

Peace bro, looking forward to some more hecno adventures Down Under

@MediScrogs no grubs in pots so far and no damage last run . Time will tell . Now here are some photos of a play around grow I have just done . I had a bunch of free seeds [ Auto ] and wanted to see how they went at this time of year outside with very little care . [ and I mean very little ] I was more interested in the amount of sun light this spot gets , which I am happy with . Temps up to 35 c mid day , soil -- spent soil from previous grows with nothing added . Feeds -- N.P.K. 5.5.5 about 5 times all up , and water that's it . As I have 3 adult kids at home we get a fair number of kids coming and going so it is a little tucked away corner that can't be seen . So it will become a future grow space . I have a indoor grow started at day 7 [ boring stage ] , but I'll start posting them a bit later on , 1 - GSC - 1 LSD - went with 2 plants as I want to train them and have the room . Oh I forgot , I have 2 more on the go in the same spot . Don't know it they will make it as the wet season is around the corner . Yield on the 2 out door plants .
