I have seen alot of threads asking about different types of soils so I figure I am going to collect and list different brands of soils and a description of each. If anyone has any others to add (I'm sure they're will be a few) post a reply and I'll add it to the list.
Black Gold - Works well as it has no nutes, letting you control it all the way through.
Fox Farm - Fox Farm appears to be the official GC soil of choice. Most growers say that is will easily nute burn young seedlings.
Jiffy Pro-Mix - Good for growing when mixed in ratios with other mediums.
Jiffy Seed Starter - Okay for growing if perlite is added as it has almost no water retention.
Miracle Grow Moisture Control - Some say it's horrible for growing Cannabis, Some say their plants <i>love</i> it. Good for growing Mushrooms.
Miracle Grow Organic - The only MG brand soil that can be used throughout a Cannabis plant's entire life.
Miracle Grow Seed Starter - Great for sowing seeds, but eventually needs transplant when nutes begin. Maybe mix with some peat.
Miracle Grow w/ Time release nutes - MG has a history of having the wrong level of nutes for Cannabis and tends to easily burn the plant with time release.
Promix Soil less Mix - Good for growing when mixed with lime to heighten the pH from 5.5.
Schultz Soil - Schultz brand soils seem to be a good for growing as far as users report.
Scotts Peat Moss - Water refuses to absorb into it. Good when mixed with perlite.
Super Soil - Works okay for Cannabis, has been reported to attract fungus gnats.
Top Soil - Only good when mixed with perlite.
Yates Brand Soil - Rated 3 out of 6 for both fertilizer level and water retention. Decent but not special soil.
