Well I don’t wanna go on a whole diatribe and hijack the poor man’s thread. After all, it is for a noble cause

However, there are many serious problems with these big box stores. Basically, in their quest to offer the lowest possible prices, they gut and destroy local economies, putting locally owned family stores out of business and essentially laying waste to downtowns across america. They also hasten globalization and promote sweatshop labor because of the way in which they relate to their suppliers. Why do you think walmart is so much cheaper than anyone else? It’ because they have so much clout n the retail world, so much market share and buying power, that they can just muscle their way around among suppliers and wholesalers and force them to sell at ridiculously low prices. For example, the rubbermaid plant in Wooster Ohio, which had been the main employer in the town and the center of community life, was famously forced to shut down and offshore or outsource to china because of walmart’s threats to cease relations with them unless the slashed their prices to a ridiculous extent.

Additionally, because of the way walmart treats and underpays its employees, American taxpayers currently pay more more towards welfare and medicaid programs to support these impoverished mistreated workers than the amount they collectively save by shopping at Walmarts. These are somewhat difficult computations and I’d have to quite a bit of back-research to source these quotes, but rest assured they are attributable to a reputable source.

Check out the great documentary film Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price. It will make you think twice about your choice to shop at walmart.

Although walmart has become the poster child for this kind of irresponsible retail strategy, and a target for much consumer ire and vitriol, the other box stores you mentioned are not much better, and engage in many of the same nefarious and avaricious practices.

Hey, you asked, so that’s just a run down. Let me say, I have had to go to walmart once in my quest for grow supplies, but it was only because I had absolutely no other choice. And why did I have no other choice? Because the introduction of walmart in my area has forced my local hardware store to stop carrying items and product lines which they can’t hope to sell at a price competitive with that of walmart. Believe me, it’s worth spend a few extra bucks to maintain your freedom from these ‘free’ market bohemoths.

Thanks for reading, and “have a nice day’ kiss-ass

i been using bad soil now time to new up that problem

How to grow from walmart, miracle grow soil and tomato fertilizer.

Alien Abductee

I have heard nothing but bad things about growing using products available at walmart. Most people can either goto walmart or order off ebay or amazon, etc which is a pain and takes to much time. Here is my method for using most reusable items from walmart. The yeilds can be impressive, I pull off 1-2 ounce off a plant from clone started at 12/12, depending on strain.

It is a little more work, be warned.

Miracle grow micromax soil. Do not get the water control, just the standard green bag. Agian, not the BLUE bag, just the green.

A GOOD ph and tds meter. At least have a ph shaker test. Do not even try without some way of testing the PH. This is the key.

Miracle grow tomato fertilizer or equiv. I actually used a 4 dollar box of some off brand, was blue. 10-15-10.

Lights. Personally I use 3 90w leds and 2 105w 2700k cfls. The 90w leds I got off ebay auctions paying less than 100 for each. The cfls run 25 dollars at www.1000bulbs.com (look for the 68 lumen per watt bulb in the 105 watt section, friggin awesome light for the price). You could use 4 cfls for under 100 dollars and be totally fine flowering 4-5 plants, which is how i started. Each bulb is around 7k lumens and runs cool enough to place within an inch of the plant tops. I added the 90w ufos as i found them over the next year or so.

Dolemite lime. I got a box for 4 dollars at walmart.

Step 1. Prepare the soil.

Take some dolemite lime and mix it in with the soil and water it heavily several times. I use about 1/4 cup or so for a 8-10 inch pot.Soak it good with water let it sit, soak it again and stir it around, make sure its worked in really nice. Let the soil dry for a day or 2 before moving to the next step.

Step 2. Seedlings or clones.

Add the seedling or clone to the soil. You will not need to do much to get it to grow. It will veg perfectly fine without much water.

Wait for the plant to get to the size you want. I recommend no more than a foot tall.

Step 4. Begining Flowering.

During the stretch you shouldn’t need to add any fertilizer or additives. Water with 6-7 ph corrected water if needed. I normally had to water once. Wait until you see bud sites.

Step 5. The tricky part.

This is where things usually go terribly wrong, but with a little elbow grease, you can take the plant through flowering without much problems. When you see the bottom leaves start to yellow start watering with 1/2 strength tomato fertilizer every other water. When using just water, collect the run off and test it with the ph meter or shaker or whatever. After a few feedings you might notice the ph plummet down to 5.0 or so, or it may stay up depending on how well the dolemite has been worked in. When this happens, do a mini flush until the runoff is back up in the 6 range. Once the runoff reaches above 6 your safe until the next feeding. After a few feedings and watering your get the hang of it. Slowly increase the fertilizer to full strength. This will get your plant through flowering without many problems. I got so good at it, I hardly ever run into problems any more.

Repeat until the plant is ready to ripen.

Stop all fertilizer and just heavily water with ph adjusted 6.5 water. I use about 3 gallons in my 10 inch pots each water on each plant. If you notice the plant start to claw.. where the tips curl down, take out and mini flush again, even if it doesn’t need water. This shouldn’t happen often if you worked in the dolemite lime good enough, it should buffer most the acid build up.
