  1. Hi, I’m new to growing and starting a grow indoors. I want to know how to make a very good soil for the plants and what products you guys prefer. I have the general organic grow box of nutrients, but I want to make a good base.
     
  2. There’s a ton of different mixes. Here’s my current mix, and it’s the best yet. Just make sure you “cook” it for 4-6 weeks.


    1/3 peat mix (I like sunshine advanced mix #4) 1/3 compost (ewc and chicken manure), and 1/3 aeration (pumice, Perlite, rice hulls, whatever)

    1 cup per cf (7.5 gallons) of each amendment

    Kelp meal
    Alfalfa meal
    Neem seed meal
    Feather meal
    Fish bone meal
    Oyster shell flour
    Crab shell meal


    1/2 cup per cf of guanos

    Seabird guano
    High N guano
    High P guano

    1.5 cups per cf of rock dusts and Biochar

    Glacial rock dust
    Basalt rock dust
    Biochar

    alroght cool thank you
     
  7. Is there anything minor I could also add to this soil that will make a big difference or no?
     
  8. Beneficial bacteria:
    Recharge for veg - these bacteria focus more on the needs for vegetation like more nitrogen
    Mammoth p for flower - these bacteria focus more on potassium and phosphorous to make your flowers get thick.

  10. I like reused soil and 50 % perlite just like hydro except you can grow different strains at the same time
