    glacial rock dust or rock dust

    good amendment for mixing your own soil or recharging used soil as it has lots of essential goodies for the ladies

    vermiculite is also a good source but like rice hulls there are health risks

    as always wear a respirator when dealing with mixing/adding soil amendments - safety first people


    an excerpt from wiki:

    Rockdust, also known as rock powders, rock minerals, soil remineralization and mineral fines, is a non-synthetic fertilizer consisting of finely crushed rock, containing minerals andtrace elements, used in organic farming. The rock is usually limestone but may also be basalt, a volcanic rock.
    Background

    Rockdust is added to soil to improve fertility and has been tested since 1993 at the Sustainable Ecological Earth Regeneration Centre (SEER Centre) in Straloch, near Pitlochry, inPerth and Kinross, Scotland.[1] Further testing has been undertaken by James Cook University, Townsville, Far North Queensland.
    Research

    SEER's research claims that the benefits of adding rockdust to soil include increased moisture-holding properties in the soil, improved cation exchange capacity and better soil structure and drainage. Rockdust also provides calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium, plus trace elements and micronutrients. By replacing these leached minerals it is claimed that soil health is increased and that this produces healthier plants.

    Typical composition table of rockdust

    Element Unit
    calcium %w/w 6.44
    iron %w/w 10.5
    magnesium %w/w 6.54
    sulfur %w/w 0.21
    potassium %w/w 1.25
    phosphorus mg/kg 3030
    cobalt mg/kg 35
    copper mg/kg 43
    manganese mg/kg 790
    molybdenum mg/kg <5
    zinc mg/kg 92
    silicon %w/w 21.6

    Available silicon
    Silicon is thought to be the major element effecting the strength of cell wall development. However it is the amount of available silica that has a dramatic effect on the plant strength and subsequent health. To highlight this, plants that are grown in very sandy soils, (being high in non available silica), often require a silica based fertiliser to provide available silicon.

    Silicon comes in silicon multi-oxide molecules (e.g. SiO2, SiO4, SiO6, SiO8 etc.). Each molecule shape is thought to pack in different ways to allow different levels of availability.

    I've been straggling on starting my first marijuana plant I have no idea that planting would be this complicated, a lot of things to consider. I'm trying to grow this GYO Seedbank decided to grow my own just for personal use and it's been very effective on treating my chronic back pain

    You need a lil guidance is all my friend its a weed and often over complicated by those trying to grow it. K.I.S.S. is a rule of thumb and always start offf with 1/2 of what the fert bottle says so ya dont burn your plants. There is a great section here that is full of all the information you could ever need and if you cant find it there ask. Most times someone will chime in with honest and helpful information for ya. Welcome to the site.
