    ponzi314 the coco I use has no nutes or living soil at all. I have to provide all the food, but I like it that way because I'm a control freak! This is the exact stuff I use:

    I have to 2nd coco as the superior growth medium It's easier and more forgiving than soil, but does cost a lot unless you want to do the work of re-hydrating your own.

    Or ponzi314 you could just skip the whole soil thing and grow in coco coir. I have found it to be easier than dirt. There is the cost thing though cause you won't be able to dig up any coco from your yard. If you haven't already, check out this link for soil nutrient recommendations.

    by Nebula Haze Soil is so simple. So close to nature. Add seeds, remember to water your plants, and wait for an awesome harvest, right? Unfortunately, many growers run into problems with cannabis plants in soil. The culprit is almost always either your environment, watering habits, or nutrients/supplements. We’ve covered environment and watering habits already,...

    Go along to a community garden meeting if you have those. Talk to your next door neighbours, look at what they are growing and what they have done. Learn to identify your soil types at varying depths and suitability.
    Where I last lived the soil was no good and needed to be mixed a little into a lot of home made living soil. It's a wonderful and fascinating process and nothing can beat it when you get it right.
    You'll save a small fortune and helping save the planet.

    I get "Fafard" organic mix at my nursery. It's made by Sun Gro the same people that make "Black Gold" products. Very similar to Black Gold but without worm castings or fungus so you can add your own amendments.

    I don't where that's coming from. But, hey. I'm still having a good day.

    Lowe's has cubic ft blocks of bags with mycroniez ( not spelled right but it's close ) big huge bags. That's the only thing i'd use in my dug out holes and i have 2 raised garden beds that i'm filling with them. It's about $30 ea but it is good stuff. Ask your nursery also, ours makes soil forsale retail also.

    Gingerbeard it's not that bad to grow 1-2 plants outdoors if you pay attention to the plants. He's got acreage a couple 20gal pots filled half way with dirt from a fertile area then amended with 2 cubic bags from any box store. This guy isn't a dum dum like someothers he's just uncertain. Digging a hole in the ground for next year heck you got plenty of time to gather all the ingredients needed. Too bad for you choices made in the past don't get pissy cause of the box you live in and shame others for saving for the unknown.
