I did an outdoor no till garden last year, but used my indoor no till mix with less starter castings (~10%). The plants got pretty large, but I think they would do better if the medium held water a little better. Because of that, I decided to adjust the ratios to half compost for outdoor this year.

Last year's garden before harvest-

I made a ~600 gallon hot compost pile, mostly using ingredients from our farm and leftover coir from my hydroponic vegetable grow. Here's a link to my desert compost procedure-


This finished compost is extremely porous due to using coco coir and straw for the carbon portion. It should work well as a high ratio (50%) of the medium with minimal compaction.

Here's the containers for outdoors, 25x 30 gallon fabric pots. I mixed one 30 gallon container of 3 year old no till medium with an equal volume of compost.

I also just finished up my new indoor room a couple days ago, canopy size is 5x14 in the floor and 2.5x15 on the left side bench, total canopy is 107.5 ft². The 5x14 has 4x 650w LED, 15 gallon containers, and the air intake comes from the mushroom greenhouse at my farm. That air comes in at 80% RH and 700-1,500 ppm CO2 depending on how full the greenhouse is packed.

These 15 gallon containers were planted with 2 of the same auto fem seeds in each. 18 containers, 5 are cheese x grape slurri, 5 are auto fuel x grape slurri, 4 are f4 of chem bubbly x (Chem bubbly x bluestreak), 4 are passion punch x grape slurri.

Here's my mushroom tent, you can see where it exhausts into the herb grow room through the plywood sheet on the wall.

Dayamn!!! I think I may have drooled a little!

How long do you take to get from seed to harvest?

It all sounds tasty but that Pure Kush x Royal Purple Kush would hit the spot!

Good luck!
