This Mix Okay?

  1. Hey guys, new guy here and wanting to go organic to avoid all the Ph problems. Wondering if this mix will suffice?

    2 parts Fox Farm Ocean Forest
    2 parts kelp meal
    1 part EWC
    1 TBL garden lime per 3 gallon bucket
    1 part perlite

    I will supplement with a top layer of kelp meal/Epsoma biotone/EWC in week 4 and 7 or 8. Will this be okay? Am I missing anything? Thanks for the help guys I appreciate it.
  2. If I read that correctly, you wanna use 33% kelp! That sounds drastic indeed. I'm also hesitant to use lime and go with a mix of shell meals instead. I would tone it down with the kelp and find some more feeding type amendments like seed meals, bone meal, alfalfa, what-have-you.
  3. So cut the kelp in half or what?
  4. Even less. Maybe something like 1/4 cup per cubic foot of mix and then mix in a tablespoon per gallon of water every other watering.
  5. wow okay so your basically telling me that I bought way too much lol, shit.
  6. Actually going to drop the kelp meal and use it as nutes in my water only since FFOF already has it in it. Is spagnum peat moss a good alternative that I could add in at an equal dose with the FFOF. I only have a 12 quart bag for four plants in 2-3 gallon buckets so I am looking to mix it with some other stuff including EWC and perlite.
  7. Alright then. Make the biggest batch you can of 30% EWC, 30% perlite, and 40% peat. Dump all of your FFOF into that mix. That's the most potting mix base you can make with what you've got on hand. It will need a couple more amendments, but that's the gist of it.
  8. Sweet dude thanks a lot! What other ammendments would you add to it? I'm about out of money so anything cheap that I could add in with it? I am already going to add the garden lime also.
  9. Go easy on the lime. Check out the Espoma line for a cheap way out. It's available in most big hardware stores, it's organic, it's crazy cheap, and highly recommended. One bag of the tone products should run you under $10 and it lasts forever.
