Soil Brands List
Posted 06 April 2008 - 08:14 PM
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.

-Black Gold seed mix with organic wetting agent (OMRI listed)
-Black Gold natural & organic .05 - .0 - .0 (OMRI listed)
both are 100% organic.
When I use this black gold natural and organic i mix in 30% perlite then 2 tbs of dolomite lime per 10lbs of mix.
After this i add my solid fertilizers:
-Black Gold organic all purpose fertilizer 5 - 5 - 5
-Sweet Earth organic all purpose fertilizer 4 - 4 - 4
I usually go with about 25% of the rating on the back of the box with both fertilizers and mix them. I do this because they both differ in ingredients. For example the Sweet Earth has beneficial soil microbes plus mycorrhizae while the Black Gold has blood meal and sulfate of potash.
The other ingredients they both have are:
dried poultry waste
and kelp meal
This gives my plants a well rounded diet until its all used up then i switch to liquid ferts but that's for another post.

8 gal Happy Frog
2 gal peralite
1 cup Kelp Meal
1 cup Blood Meal
1/2 cup garden lime
My next mix I'm removing the Blood meal and using Bat Guano the nitrogen breaks down faster in the guano from what I have read.
