Whats the best soil mix RATIO?
hey guys and gals Im going to transplant my 11 clones to put them in the flowering room.
Im using the ocean forest blend(Fox Farms) but am stuck at what else to use..... pearlite, vermiculite, ?
I far prefer perlite to vermiculite.
You could go up to about a third perlite but here's the thing:
More perlite= better drainage and easier to fix overfert problems, BUT you have to be more watchful about letting the soil dry out.
I'd try 20-25% in that soil and see how your plants like it.
I mix about 20% perlite and 10% vermiculite with good potting soil.
Perlite lets soil dry out better. Vermiculite helps soil hold moisture. Perlite is more important by far.
Everything I say in this forum is completely true, and should be construed as fact. I do smoke weed, and sometimes I eat it. Not only that I sell it, along with every other drug known to man and a few that aren't. Everything I do is 100% illegal, and I condone others breaking the law. All pictures that I post are not taken from the internet, but are of my own illegal operation. Also, I speed and don't come to complete stops at stop signs.
