best soil to grow weed from home depot

In my experience, I have tried many many soils from Homedepot. I dont like any of them.
I grew Early Misty in Scotts premium soil and it turned out ok.
Miracle Grow Organic (and it must be the organic, not time release or moisture control) is the best in my awesome opinion. No big chunks, slightly acidic ph, and low content of nutrients.

That was a long time ago though. Now I am a big supporter of Fox Farm. I know its expensive, but trust me, its worth it. Check the link in my sig for the journal. I grow in Fox Farm Oceans Forrest and I couldnt be happier.

spend the money, it will be worth it

What I’d like to do is make my own soil mix, in bulk, from components I can get cheap locally.

Hey guys, I can’t afford to do my entire grow with the expensive soil mixes like from Fox Farms, etc.

St.buds no organic nothing around where i live, hydro store? what’s a hydro store? i got SO lucky when the local feed store started carrying FF although i get a little bit of the heebie jeebies going in there right in the thick of people who hate me they just don’t know it. but we do have at least 2 hme depots and and 2 lowe’s. so i did some digging and home depot has started to carry these.

now i have not used them yet, but they look promising. big chart on the back listing all ingredients and in what proportions. plus they seem to be marketing themselves in "a certain way" it seems to me. for example, they’ve got the obligatory tomato and vegetable mix, and the tropical mix, but if you notice on the link, there’s a big bloom mix, a root zone/early mix (which has a recipe for compost tea on the back, and another that sounds just like those sound like the same 3 groups that every other company uses.

Big Root All Purpose Potting Soil is a good soil if you’re looking for an alternative to Fox Farms, but to be honest it’s pretty expensive to buy online.

The reason some people prefer coco and perlite is that it offers really good drainage.

The nutrient mix is just right and it does a good job of maintaining the right pH level. Fox Farms also has a good mix of microbes and fungi which help with nutrient uptake for your plants.

Buying Guide

Let’s start by discussing what cannabis does not need. The biggest mistake inexperienced growers make is taking that lazy trip to Home Depot and choosing the seemingly-easiest option: that great big green bag of Miracle Grow that claims to have everything your plants need to thrive in the bag – including fertilizer.

The downside of using coco is that it doesn’t provide nutrients so you need to get your plants nutrients by using a fertilizer like Fox Farms Trio.

Happy Frog is easily the best soil I’ve ever used.
