Indoor facility built by Hunt…

A big THANK YOU to our sponsors: Endomaxx, TH Seeds, Growlite OG, Myron L pH pens, Doit, and #4pieces

Projects for home: Plant something and see what happens. Water it and care for it and love it like your own. Next show we will see how you are doing with your new plant.

TAGG YOUR PHOTOS #GGGROWSOMETHING FOR US TO SEE WHERE AND WHAT YOU’RE GROWING —- #GGGROWSOMETHING IS THE GREEN MOVEMENT!!!!

Indoor Lighting: florescents for indoor use, window sills work well for seeds, the kelvin range of the T5 is 2600 degrees = soft lighting for seed starting, transitioning from soft lighting to outdoors takes time and repetitions before you can expose them to a full day of sun… (Growlite OG)

Seedlings: source out the proper place for good seeds, no GMO focus, germination takes time and different techniques vary, humidity helps soften the seed to open for the seedling, paper towel & ziplock works well for germination indoors, soak the seeds in water for 12 hours to soften up if they are older and have been packed away, obtain the proper seed for the elevation, season, and soil (TH Seeds)

beet sprouts

High Elevation Gardening:  having your genetics and varieties from high elevation sources, pop seeds at elevation for planting, sun is intense due to the raised typography, water needs to be clean or striped or alkaloid metals, replace trance minerals, watch out for inconsistent humidity as it brings pests an fungus, seal indoor aspects for proper ventilation and warmth due to colder outside conditions, companion plants (#4pieces)

Water: has to be clean, pH levels must be proper for the plant, heavy metals are an issue, test the water source, reverse osmosis machines will eliminate both negative and positive aspects of the minerals, collect FREE rain water to use, temperature of your water most be same as the temp of the soil/living organism (Myron L pH pen)

Building you space: find upcycled or recycled material to use, build your own, find containers to use for aspects of growing, anything can be functional and it’s free, vertical gardening, urban gardening, aquaponics, plan and plot out your crops for maximization, compost is a great soil amendment (Endomaxx)

Soil: recycle soil, purchase super soil, natural land needs to be amended, make sure there is air in the soil {pours}, add a rock well to your containers, make compost teas to feed, nutrients if needed, rotate crops for maximum soil use (Doit)

Hunt’s tomato plants – started 3 weeks ago – will be transplanted into the GG Garden 🙂
