High in Hawaii

Recommended Posts

Aloha Lamsbread, I love the winters here in Hawaii and plan to work on nutrient mixes using coir and our locally produced black scoria. It is 2% Titanium along with Ca,Mg, and 51% Si.

Ke aloha nô me ka mahalo kâua!

I have been trying to find volcanic cinder online and the only place I can get it is from hawaii. I have even tried to find European cinder but no luck as yet.

I was also wondering what the main differences are between black cinder and red cinder.

The scoria sound cool,what with its cal/mag and silicon,you'll get some nice strong stems and leaves.

2% Titanium you gonna be rich, ever thought of making your own Ti nail?;)

But on a more serious note, I look forwards to finding out the results of your nutrient mixes and seeing a few nice pics of your ladies,

Aloha Lams, I used the red scoria in Seattle for several crop cycles and it worked just fine. In the EU I think the horticultural scoria comes from Italy .  The substrate they were using in The Netherlands was a gray color. The black scoria here is real porous and glass like. With our peat mixes it has worked well recycled for over three in the greenhouse. I think the color of scoria is mineral content as the black is 5-14% Iron Oxide.

Aloha Oldemarine:)

 

I found listings for pumace Which is grey (maybe what you mentioned they use in the Nederlands).?

 

I have a lso found Red and black crushed lava (is this the same as scoria)?

 

Here is a picture -

I found the red and black crushed lava in a pet store listing, where it was being marketed for lizard vivarium substrate or as an aquatic substrate.

 

It seems further away you get from the source the more exotic the use of the product is, In hawaii you got the suff comin out your ears ( well volcanoes lol)

 

Do you dig up what you need from old lava flows? or does it go through another process first be fore it is ready for sale?

 

Take care my friend

 

Peace and smokes

nice film :)

I t is good to see everything coming back to life after the lava covered abd burn the old vegetation.

I'm sure it is pretty amazing stuff packed full of minerals and will be great in a soil or soiless mix.

peace

Aloha Lams, I think of the black scoria as an extra durable method of increasing the drainage and air space of the finely ground coir much like adding perlite to a peat substrate. So far things look good using Alaska Fish fertilizers (5-1-1 & 0-10-10) as base nutrients. I may have to add a little magnesium sulfate during the reproductive stages of growth.

Hawaiian lost valley strain should be on the destination list for sure !! Such a legend strain! But not an easy thing to hunt for, such as, it's a state of USA, and so much inbreeding with other strains such as OG, trainweck, bubba must have been already done!! (always the same problem to find the Original which has been IBL with herself dozen of years!).
