Even to most organic growers it seems scary to put your trust in Nature completely and try not to interfere with the process that happens when humus is built up naturally in the soil, providing plants with a complete array of vitamins and minerals needed to thrive, as well as the all important microbiology which flourishes in healthy soil and works precisely and delicately alongside plants’ root systems to make nutrition readily bioavailable when plants want it, resist pests and ailments, and produce high yields and increase oil resin production and potency.
It is no surprise, however, that the finely tuned art of Nature has a perfect way of doing this. In order to grow amazing weed without any store-bought fertilizers, first of all, you must be willing to grow in the ground, out of doors, in native living soils (and preferably with natural unchlorinated waters). Secondly, you must be willing to do the work of building your own soil. How does one do that? It’s very simple.
Stop buying things such as bagged soil, store bought nutrients or fertilizers.
Raise chickens and/or other livestock such as sheep, goats or cattle. Utilize the manure and waste of all the living beings on your land to make your own compost. Companion plant or rotate fodder crops for feeding them alongside your cannabis and other crops.
Get worms and make your own castings, too, from the same wastes and food scraps.
Cover crop every winter and mulch regularly to build organic matter.
Rotate cultivation areas or rows into fallow to rest the soil every 3-5 years. Do not over-till or cultivate with heavy machinery. Oxygenate and cultivate your soil by hand to increase the nutrient intake and fertility within the humus you create.
Companion plant with beneficial plant species and cultivate a bio-diverse poly-culture to keep soil nutrients and microbiology in healthy balance and pests under control.
Utilize Biodynamic plant and mineral preparations of Quartz Crystal, Horn Silica, Yarrow, Chamomile, Oak Bark, Stinging Nettle, Willow, Burdock, Dandelion, Valerian and Horsetail and manure preparations and compost teas to fertilize in a closed-loop system.
