Soil Types

by bagmania01 about June 29 - report

Hello everyone. .  I’m sorry to ask so many questions but I’m trying to get up to your levels of knowledge. Is there any cheaper media/soil than the Fox Farm or other of the high priced shit I’ve been told to use?

    We always appreciate questions because we all learn and one day you will be answering a question for someone new down the line. Imo, fox farm soil is really great and if you compare the cost of the soil and the amount of weed you can grow in it compared to what you would spend to purchase that same amount of weed, it's now competition. Imo, when you are building a house never skimp on the foundation. Just my opinion. Good luck and keep asking questions because growing weed is fun!

    You can use a, "Super" soil for several weeks and not have to use any nutrients, but sooner or later you will need to use nutrients. I found it just as easy to use a simple top soil and add nutrients. You give the plants what they need so they don't have to get it from the soil, that's all. For those super soils you will pay a lot and still end up using nutrients imo.  Peace

    What up bagman... There are many different ways to come up with a GOOD soil/soiless mx to grow cannabis in. You can find all you need at Walmart. or buy the pre-made stuff. I like to reuse my mix, so I'm continually adding ammendments to it, to replenish soil biology and nutes. Make sure it drains well ! It's really fun stuff. Happy growin

    I have used the miracle grow soil for raised beds. It has all of the good and no fertilizer mixed in. Worked well for me. Lowe’s carries it.

    Bagmania, first of all I don't feel you should ever apologize for asking questions, isn't that what this portal is for?  Second, how much they charging you for Fox Farms,  I just went and got a bag from my hydro shop and he charged me $15. And had a very possible enlightening conversation about growing with the owner, I will post after this. I think even the higher end stuff at dept. stores are already up near 10=12 bucks, so for the little extra.  I tried an organic soil from Home Depot, Kelloggs Organic potting mix or some shit, and bro that shit fucked up my plant, as soon as I transplanted it into some Nectar for the Gods #4, it was fine in 2 days!!  I was doing a side by side with 3 different soils. FF  ocean forest, Nectar #4, and the Kelloggs.  The Kelloggs sucked big time, and it was like 9 dollars I think.  Let us know if you find something cheap that works good, I'm a cheap fucker.

    I give 20 bucks a bag for FFOF. I start seeds in FFHF. I’m going to try out water grows next run though. I think the FFOF is worth every penny as far as a soil grow goes though. You get back what you put into your pot in weight and quality. Ask all the questions you want. That is what the WP is for. Happy growing my friend!
