Questions about soil

Discussion in 'First Time Marijuana Growers' started by mindrevolution, May 11, 2010.

  1. I'm trying to fill a 3 gallon bucket with soil but I don't have quite enough to fill it all as much as it needs, would it be okay to fill the remaining space with organic compost (made from leaves and vegetable food waste)?

    Also, how do I know how what size holes and how many to drill for drainage?

    Thanks
     
  2. I would put the compost material on the bottom. Sand, small gravel can also fill space. A drill will make hole punching easy. The size of the hole depends on what is right on top of the hole. If using small gravel, the water will drain easier regardless of hole size. Holes should be smaller than the gravel.
