With the teas over I am ready to add some more clones to the 100 gallon #grassroots pot. this is going to the final clones till I flip in 2-3 weeks depending how the clones will do.

I am really hoping the blueberry don't stretch much in flower as it will be a monster in 2 weeks.

Anyone that wants to support youtube channel -

Hey man! So I wouldnt worry too much about the metal strainer as they are usually stainless steel. Yeah, a cheese cloth might be more effective and safer but not so much so to worry about.

Just a suggestion, but you could brew the worm castings for 15-30 minutes and apply directly to the soil. Just gotta make sure that the compost/castings is in a bag ie nylon mesh tea bag, cheese cloth or burlap bag etc, with the air pump hose (be careful not use air stones as they will harbor anaerobic bacteria.) no straining really needed.

With teas, usually when brewed or 24-36 hours we apply with a sprayer after straining to the plant stem and leaves at a lower psi in order to prevent the microorganisms from impacting the surface too hard and dying.

I personally wouldnt worry too much about the isopods but would be concerned about the exposed soil. Having exposed soil can cause the top soil to dry out and have nutrients evaporate as well as attract unwanted flies/gnats.

I understand you have had issues with straw and believe the addition of straw caused nutrient lock out with N. In my experience I would see N lock out after bokashi and LAB treatments. At anyrate, I think adding some hardwood like oak or birch chip (anything but pine and terpy smelling bark of the such and softwoods) to the soil but also adding mushroom spawn from King strato

Dam man thanks for all this information, I have thought about adding woodchips but hard to find some that are quality that I don't have to buy a truck load.

But will look more into the mushroom spawn.

I did have an issue with straw but it may have been the type I used I have ordered more cover crop seeds as that is lacking this round.

I have been bad about re-planting clover with each layer I add. It is an art trying to keep the cover crop growing with each mulch layer added.

Be careful though some wood is not good to use fresh like pine and fir. Oak, birch, applewood or hardwoods that do not smell terpy is preferable

Looking really good bro,
I like how you water slowly, I'm a bit of a stickler about slow watering because it helps the soil absorb the water at a more even rate and reduces the amount of unnecessary bottom draining.
Can't wait to see the blueberry bud explosion, keep up the great work!
