First off, my history. I have grown several times (all failures due to my lack of planning and knowledge. haven't tried in over a year) and know a decent bit about growing. My first grow, I used MG Organic mix(i know, i know) and six weeks into the grow it had barely sprouted past its seed leaves, and plus i used a crap flouro light which probably didn't help either. Scrapped that one. A little while later I came across an "Uncle Milton's Hydro Greenhouse" at a local craft store and had to buy it. It used a perlite soil medium and the toy-brand fertilizer. I also used an unknown watt (highest lumen output i could find) CFL bulb. I stuck the seed into the perlite and the plant went absolutely nuts. I mean, you could tell a difference in hight and growth every 4 or 5 hours. The only problem with that, I'm pretty sure I got root lockup and the bottom leaves started turning yellow and dying. I thought it was a male (didn't know how to sex) and yanked it, started over. Had the same fertilizer and light in the Uncle milton and the plant ended up growing about a foot and a half tall with very little problem. Occasional leaf yellowing, but nothing too bad until the end. I didn't know how to fix the problem with the roots (which i assume caused the yellowing and death of leaves) and the plant was male anyways, so i threw it away and haven't tried again since. My Questions: 1. I want to try organic growing. I'm still a beginner and finding a lot of the supplies to make my own soil is expensive and difficult to locate. I saw a thread about Kellogg Patio Plus and wanted to try it. If I buy this Kellogg Patio Plus soil, do I need to add any other nutrients to the soil? If so, what nutrients and how much? Can I find them at a local Wal-Mart or hardware store? 2. Should I use the same soil for flowering as I did in my vegitative cycle? If not, what should I do differently with the soil? Any help would be greatly appreciated. The weed around here has been crap for the last couple of months (smelling like cabinets, smelling and tasting like dryer sheets, its usually still wet and doesn't even smell remotely like marijuana and its always dark and has a headache high. I don't live close enough to a major city to ride out and get some purp or kush, and there is a HUGE drought on both in my area. Any times i do come across it, its 30 per gram. Help.
