    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, ?

    any suggestions?

    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.
