      sounds like good stuff ! I don’t think we have MicroLife around here .. must be a Texas thing..

      You might have killed it with lime! – Know soil PH before messing $ with lime! – There’s No reason to use lime in ready made potting soil! – And know that it takes 68 degrees F for a tomato flower to set! – You need these low night time temps, or enjoy a green plant! – Cherry tomato’s are different. – Another thing to know is a tomato plant? is a vine!. Stake it for room. As a seedling remove the first node of leaves, and bury half-way to the next node when up-potting.Makes a stronger plant!

      @HonestJohn60 – I guess you haven’t bothered to go back into LDSPrepper’s channel to look at the harvests he and his Mrs. have enjoyed in previous years? I visited your channel and didn’t see any uploaded videos on planting/gardening? Suggest you visit houstongardeningtipsDOTorg for further information on who you are commenting to. Hope? this helps.

      NICE…? Thanks for sharing.

    10. LDSPrepper Says:

      It doesn’t indicate that on the bag. So, I am guessing it is not, but it could be. I know MicroLife isn’t available everywhere. I listed what it is? made from to give everyone an idea what to look for in an organic fertilizer or what to use to make your own. I hope that helps.

    11. LDSPrepper Says:

      Awesome. Please let us know how it goes. If you can take video that would even be better.?

    12. stymye Says:

      thanks , just checked out the ingredients …? it’s pretty much organic , but because it includes cotton seed meal they can’t 100% approve it ,because 99% of all cotton is sprayed with chemicals for the boll weevil.. so it’s 99+% organic .lol . more than good enough for most people . i’m sure you agree…. sure wish I had something like this in my area.

    13. HonestJohn60 Says:

      I just needed a quick comment without an hours research. Maybe his soil needs the rapid PH change? – I would of liked to know.. I’m sorry to have bothered you, and? you had to go out of your way. It wont happen again. 😉

    14. LDSPrepper Says:

      Thank you so much for checking and explaining that. I wouldn’t have know that.?

    15. ByNatureFarms Says:

      Great video, Thanks?

    16. TheAsphaltCowboy47 Says:

      I like the idea of automatic watering? BUT you dont show the whole set uip. Can you make a video showing the start to finish of the system. I dont understand where the water begins.

      God Bless

    17. LDSPrepper Says:

      I have a? playlist on my channel showing everything.

    18. TheAsphaltCowboy47 Says:

      I have watched all of your self watering videos? and understand it all now except for the 24 small holes in tnhe bottom of the bucket/ Why do you need them with the wick in the middle? What is their purpose.


    19. LDSPrepper Says:

      They provide aeration for the micro life? in the soil.

    20. munchichi8 Says:

      Is it? possible to use regular soil without the pearlite or peatmoss with this setup?

    21. LDSPrepper Says:

      No because regular soil will not wick the water up. If it does it will retain the water and drown the? roots of the plant. It also will smoother the roots of oxygen.

    22. munchichi8 Says:

      Please check out GlobalBuckets website.? globalbuckets . org
      They have a similar setup but only uses regular soil for the wicking effect.

    23. LDSPrepper Says:

      LOL, I have. It says, “You can NOT use ordinary dirt in your global buckets.” It even gives their recipe,? “70% Sphagnum Peat, 20% Vermiculite, 10% Perlite”. There is no soil in their system. If there were it would not work.

      First, thank you for all of your efforts to share your learning experiences. Second, would you mind clearing? up the following: In this video you mention using a slow release fertilizer. Yet, in an earlier video, you specifically state not to use a slow release. Instead, you say to use a continual release fertilizer.

    25. LDSPrepper Says:

      Great question. I’m sorry for the confusion. This product states that it is a slow release fertilizer. In reality all? organic fertilizers are slow release compared to chemical fertilizers. I was referring to not using chemical slow release fertilizers. Thanks for asking.
