  1. Just wanted to know can I use regular soil out of the ground instead of some you buy in a bag (potting mix). If I can use regular soil, what should I look out for when trying to find some good soil? There are some farms where I live that have just been ploughed, would the soil in these fields be any good? I'm doing an outdoor grow and I want to see if I can grow weed without having to buy anything what so ever. Apart from buying the seeds obviously :p

    Thanks. :smoke:
  2. Yes you could use outdoor soil but you run into the chance of it having bugs/pests. I would get a few buckets of it, sift through it so it is nice and fine. Mix in some organic compost (worm castings, humus, peat moss, decomposed vegetables).
