It's going to be out there in the forest, so not trying to go back and fourth a lot.
a few summers ago i did a crop in a mix of 1/3 coco, 1/3 castings, 1/3 potting soil, w/ some soil moist added. i didnt feed em or or have too water much during veg. during bloom i fed em schultz african violet plant food in non-ph'ed hose water (its as simple as it gets). it got hot and dry for several weeks and i was having to make 2 trips a week to give em a drink. but it was only about a 100' walk through the shit for me so i could pack in 8 gallons of mix in with not much trouble, and by not much trouble i mean: stumblin over shit, sweatin like hell cause its hot and humid as fuck, goddamn mosquitoes fuckin eatin ya alive, briers tearin the shit out of ya because lets face it, sticker bushes make for great security. so my advise for growin under the giant mh/hps is to hope for the best, but prepare for the worst because you will have to go out a few times.

A mixture that should work for you:
120 parts Coco
40 parts Worm Castings
20 parts Composted Cow Manure
20 parts perlite
4 parts Blood Meal
4 parts Bone Meal
4 parts Kelp Meal
1 part Epsom Salt
1 part Dolomite Lime
Mix this up and let it cook for 30 days. Start the seedlings in a 33/33/33 mixture of this, pure coco, and perlite to reduce the exposure to too much food too soon. Layering of the mixture (hotter towards the bottom with more Compost) will provide food for the plant as it grows.
You could utilize other amendments (many other amendments), but this base organic mixture should keep them rolling outdoors without too much need for mixing nutrients on a regular basis. You might want to top dress with higher PK guano and additional Micro when they begin to bloom.
Wash your coco before using it to ensure it is salt free. Canna likes to include a pre-charge in their coco that can be too much for seedlings at times. Clean coco gives peace of mind.

Just when you find a place dont skimp out out going for huge walks. Think about when flowering comes along and if u picked a shit spot some kids will take it or even walkers could step on them
take a shiney new silver dollar and put on the ground in plain site were it can easily be seen, if you go back and that silver dollar is gone ... then youve been had.
