    I just spread my amendments on the soil surface and then rake them in.

    I've heard of this technique. I don't use it, but I do use other techniques that achieve similar ends. I can comment that The Rev knows his stuff thoroughly, if he says it works, it works.

    There's really no secret, you just incubate it for a couple months. I guess I would say that when I use my compost teas the drainage is directed towards my compost piles and recycles and feeds the composting. In effect they get a compost tea every week. Under my rockstar post there's a list of how I make my soil and why the ingredients are present. I prefer to layer my soil and then top dress. I don't see why 'spiking' wouldn't work

    I know what you mean about testing out new things, I was really torn up over whether to top-dress the maple ridge rockstar with langbeinite or not, since it's pretty bad for micros as I understand it. But if you're running on original H.C. paperwork, no time to try things like the present, because the future is anyone's guess...

    Nah, the best time to try stuff is in the past, that way you're already done.

    Of course, that requires some forethought and prior planning..

    By a Mr. Fusion of course

    Lol, I just realized the sequel with the Mr. Fusion attachment came out in '89, the same year Cold Fusion hit the news then died out.

    Did u ever figure out your spikes brother? For whatever stage spike your gonna make. Mix in a seperate bucket. Then use a pencil or straw to make a hole in your pot (usually 2-4) and pour in spike material.
    I consider spikes to be a great boost especially when workin with longer vegging and flowering girls. Kinda like a safety net if your soil is weak or been depleted. Good luck, ribbit-ribbit.

    Ya, not too derail someone else's thread, but cold fusion was buried and the guys were made martyrs basically. Just like the scientists in the 90's that spoke out against GMO....
    Call me crazy, I actually understand the science. There are so many types of water , water can be programmable, it can be heavy water, it can be magnetic, it just keeps going...
    We make the future through our past and present actions. I hope to live long enough to see cold fusion or electromagnetic pulse technology become common place.
