The post above is incorrect. It may be the cheapest but it is not the best.There is a reason you pay $20 a bag for soil. The soil from your back yard will have to be baked to kill all the pest and diease.
First of all, we do not all live in the Land of the NOT so Free, so cannot buy Fox Farm - probably a GOOD THING, as FFOF is not entirely organic.
Second, who said anything about soil from anyone´s back yard?
My own mix has:
peat/forest product to support roots and hold water.
Sand/grit/crushed volcanic rock to help drainage.
horseshit/wormcasts/real compost for nutrition
Lime to stabilise pH
The cheapest and the best, for a load less than $20 a bag (however big a ´bag´is). And the reason you pay $20 a bag is solely to boost the makers´ profits. If you want proof of the pudding look at my grow journal.

At least you gave a complete answer this time.
No-one here has any obligation to give you or anyone else any answers, complete or otherwise, especially considering your ungrateful and demanding attitude.
All pretty academic anyway, as I see that the original poster started this thread on 14 March, and hasn´t bothered to return.

At least you gave a complete answer this time. I rather buy a bag of soil then going out to find horse shit. It would also take less time to buy the soil then to make that mixture. i could give a shit what color my square is.Also if a person is asking this question dont you think there new to growing. Also the question the person was asking was,what is the best soil and nutrients they can buy not make.So excuse my ignorance but at least I can read the fucking question correctly.
You do not need to go out and shovel up horse shit....... You can get all those things in bags and mix it yourself.. Look at his plants... They are amazing.

mega grow, big bloom, and tiger bloom during blooming.
just follow the fox farm schedule. FoxFarm Soil & Fertilizer Company
pretty much, everyone swears their soil grows the best pot. i second that. i swear the nursery down the road makes all their money by selling foxfarm to pot growers!

1 your a douch. dont give people with alot more experience than you lip. untill u grow half as good as him be polite. any answer he gives is still more intelligent than yours wether its complete or not.
2 i agree with cantharis, the best is your own mixture. and no one said anything about scooping up horse shit but if u want to grow quality plants then why not go the extra mile. theres nothing wrong with getting your hands dirty.

Canth knows what he is doing...and he does give helpful advice to people who aren't stupid and purposely (seemingly) not read the stickies. Canth just gives everyone tough loving
Thanks syonide. +rep
I see that the original poster has still not bothered to return.

Miracle-Gro (24-8-16) is excellent as well,if used as directed.It also can be used for veg. and bloom with no need to switch to Miracle-Gro Bloom.You can if you want,but i never notice any difference by switching.
