Welcome-welcome, my green amigos! My newest (3rd) book, True Living Organics the Druid’s Guide, should be out here within the next couple of months or so. I’m very excited to bring you all this newest edition of my True Living Organics (TLO) cannabis growing guide for living soil Recycling your soil and building supernatural soil mixes your cannabis plants will love. This book is, in my estimation, the proverbial “third pancake” heh heh.
In the new book I basically wrote down everything I know about TLO growing up to this point in time. One of the big huge realities about your garden, is that it is unique, like every other garden is. Environments differ greatly, water sources vary a lot, and growers will have different natural resources and availability to things. So, it’s not like a one size fits all kind of thing. In the new book I give you all massive options. With many example set-ups to run depending on your particular growing situation.
Essential True Living Organics Tools
In the photo above you can see the water filtration unit I have been using for 15 years for removing chlorine (monochloramine) from my city tap water. You quite simply cannot grow well in living soil using chlorinated water, period. The water filter units aren’t spendy. The filter cartridges last me a year; and they are also inexpensive to replace. If your water is chlorinated, you’ll want one of these types of filter units. The new chlorine in water called monochloramine cannot simply be bubbled out of your water. Nor can it be boiled or frozen out. You need (dual) carbon filtering.
You will also want at least one digital TDS (totally dissolved solids/salts) meter to stay on top of your PPM (parts per million) values in your plant water. Again, these aren’t expensive and are worth their weight in gold for growing in living soil, because consistency is the name of the game when it comes to keeping all the life in your growing containers happy, including your plants, and then your uber happiness with the results—Shazam!
TLO Druid’s Guide is a Buffet
As I mentioned prior, the True Living Organics philosophy is highly adaptable to whatever your situation may be. The book is a whole shit-ton (Texas measurement LoL) of options. Use what you want and can easily do and leave the rest. You certainly wouldn’t need to use all the different growing dynamics in the book, you customize it for you. I give you many examples of very different types of TLO gardens using different sources and styles … Yup, there’s even an Apartment Style.
I show you how to use a freshwater aquarium correctly so it can be your primary nutrient source throughout your grow. I have replaced that whole organic tea nutrient dynamic with The Churn. The Churn is a sort of perpetual tea and is the main powerhouse in my gardens for nutrient supply. There is a ton of stuff to learn in this new book, seriously, but the beauty is you can take on whatever part of it you want to first, and ease yourself in. You don’t need a ton of growing knowledge; you just need to trust the things I advise you about to be true—try it my way and you will see the light.
True Living Organics – Beyond Cannabis
Converting to an actual living organic growing style will help you in many ways beyond all the top shelf smoke you will be producing, yes-yes-yes…
As you recycle your soil, your overall soil volume will grow, and having this extra wicked soil can add some serious magic to your container veggies, or just use the soil as a top layer soil in your outdoors gardens and just watch what happens!
A compost tumbler is indeed a beautiful thing to have in TLO. It also recycles soil/composts super-fast in all day sunshine—like in 20 days—but even in some sunshine it still will fully compost whatever in about 30 days. This method is almost totally smell-free due to the high amounts of air present during the tumbler process. I show you all about how to roll with or without compost tumblers. From the simplest starting TLO methods to fairly involved methods, you choose; like I said, it’s a “buffet” baybee 😉
I Wish I could Share a Doobie with All of You
Right off the top of my head I can think of several TLO converts I made here locally over the years simply by turning them on to some of the final TLO grown product—yup, it is that stand-above-the-rest quality. I have occasionally come across it’s equal from highly skilled all natural cannabis growers, but never anything better; and I do mean, occasionally, sadly. But, I’m here to help change that.
One of the big secrets of TLO grown cannabis is actually what’s not in it. Another facet to that secret is you, as a HUMAN grower, not reacting to things, like potential growing issues. The truth is, even if you were to correctly ID an issue, like say calcium. Adding calcium is the worst thing you could do 99.99% of the time when growing all naturally—full stop. In addition, the reality is every single nutrient matters, a lot. By the time you see evidence of an issue, that’s likely not the real underlying issue. TLO soil, when build per my advice, will lack nothing nutrient-wise. You will not experience nutrient deficiencies, as long as you don’t add too many/much or use any “secret liquids” like Superthrive or whatever. Very bad … 99% of any liquid additions are wrong when using living soil and leveraging its true power! As a Druid, you will understand exactly why.
Grab A Copy of The Druid’s Guide (TLO) on Amazon Very Soon
If you are still growing “on the bottles” please give my methods a real try. It’s easy to do right alongside your other container plants, just do a few TLO style, choose one of the easy methods, and then you compare… Prepare to be blown away. Grab the book, and you can also tune into/subscribe to my YouTube channel: Rev’s YouTube Channel and check out a series I am about to start. It will delve into some of the more nuanced facets of TLO growing here starting in another month or so. Haven’t been there in a bit, but I will be—wiggling eyebrows.
I really appreciate the support from all you good peeps that buy the book. It was a lot—like a lot-lot—of work. I think it brings in a wealth of knowledge for those of you that really want to see what cannabis can be in it’s true top-shelf form. Whenever peeps hand you some herb and say “it’s the best weeds ever” you can reply, “compared to what?” Heh heh, I do that all the time—LoL.
You may want to grab yourselves some all TLO grown and bred cannabis seeds of excellent quality that will naturally boom in your TLO living soil. Stop by Kingdom Organic Seeds (KOS) and grab yourselves up some beauties.
