"I highly advise you to stay away from the Miracle Grow potting soils, they can deff be rough on plants. Ive had terrible experience with it when I first started.
Next germinate seeds and get dirt that has no nutes or peat or anything in it. Then mix 25/75 perlite/dirt and place your newly germinated seeds into small containers. I'm talking 2"x2" peat pot. Hyponex is a descent soil that you can sometime get at Walmart when it's in season or if they have any let over at this time. Your best bet is going to a local gardening center to pick up these supplies. It's not odd to come in the middle of winter to get 8 bags of frozen top soil from out back. Our gardening center says its a more popular item than you'd expect in the winter.
Next once your seedlings are showing signs of good growth and are well rooted in the 2x2 peep pot its time to transplant into a new soil mixture. This is about 7-10 days. What you will need is "Espoma Flower Tone" organic nutrients, Lime, Vermiculite. Mix 40/60 50/50 perlite/soil. For every 5gal of mixture add 1 cup of Lime, 4 cups of Vermiculite, and 5 cups Organic Nutes. This is a fail safe flowering mixture. For vegging you would just use plant tone instead of flower tone.
I'd also suggest that you get Brer Rabbit Mollasses from a grocery store and mix 1 teaspoon into 1gal of warm water. The warm water really helps you mix the mollasses in since it is a thick substance. Every 3 waterings use this water mixture and you will have slightly more dense buds.
It is extremely important for your water to be at a ph level of 6-6.3 for you plant to be able to absorb all nutes. To do this go to your local pet stores and get a ph testing kit and ph down. They amount of drops that you add to just plain tap water and mol water are different. So you will need to figure out how many to add to each."

It is also way too dense to use by itself. If you must use it, mix it with Perlite from Lowes. 2 parts soil to 1 part perlite. But seriously, dont use Miracle Gro. JUST GET FOX FARM OCEAN FORREST Mix from your local hydroponics store. It costs more but its totally worth it!

I mix it with some really nice top soil, and it works fine.
Top soil form outside? If you're growing indoors, you shouldn't use outdoor soil at all. Its got bugs and eggs and fungus and all sorts of shit that will thrive in an indoor growroom environment. Unless you cook it in your oven on high heat for a while, but that'll stink up the house real good

what makes it organic?Is it the wood chips the rocks the clay or the horse crap don't belive me pass it through a 1/4 shive (mesh) and see what your left with.
then put it under a 20-40X microscope and tell me what bugs you find or just wonder why you have real weeds and grass growing in your grow room.
I'm going to use a word i swore i'd never use Phooey

...It'll work...and you'll get smokable bud from it. But it will taste a bit harsh and will not be as potent as it could be. From my first grow, on a scale of 1-10, my potency was about a 3...it could only get you so far no matter how much you smoked. This could have been the plant genetics...but the MG, I believe, played a part of it.
FoxFarms only cost a little extra. Go with it. You'll notice immediately that your plants like it better.
