The Dude Grows Show


Hello Scotty and DGC,

I am a living soil grower. I grow in 20 gallon Grassroots fabric pots. I use primarily Buildasoil inputs, Silica Earth, and Recharge. I water with Blumats on a gravity feed from a 10 gallon resevoir. My plants are always very healthy but I want to push them a little harder. Has anyone tested using Grow Dots on living soil? I know to most living soil growers, this is taboo, but I like to keep an open mind. You never know what you could discover

    Grow Dots are complete nutrition. Living soil creates complete nutrition. Combining the two makes zero sense. Why would you want to over feed your plants?

      Fair enough. That’s why I asked, didn’t know if it would make sense. I Didn’t know if the plant would still take what it needs from the soil with the dots being a little boost.

        The Grow Dots wouldn’t “hurt” a living soil, they would just be redundant.

          it could “hurt” u could burn them depending how much food is in the living soil. maxing grow dots with that could very easily be too much for the plant to handle

            I was referring to microbes, not the plant. Redundant nutrition will burn the plant.

    Shame! Shame! Shame!
    Just kidding. Go light on the dots or you’ll burn em in a rich soil.
