year 4 so my question is this I use soil in 5-25 gal tubs, I have been buying Happy Frog, its good stuff but expensive. Do I need to add other nutrients to soil? Can I mix Pro Mix with older Happy Frog soil?. Outdoor growing.
There are definitely people here who can help.
@bobette specifically grows outdoors.
Hello! @4canna2grow0 ! Welcome to GN! Many people are here that can help.
I’m an outdoor grower in Michigan. I amend my old soil. I don’t buy a mix. There are many recipes on you-tube. Look for your soil type. I found it to be easy better doing your own. I can give you a list of what I use, but I also do in ground, not pots. Plants get much bigger.
If your interested in my soil mix, toss me a DM and I’ll send it.
Another lady grower!
Welcome, hope you enjoy your stay here
You can mix pro mix and ffhf. Happy frog probably got enough in it to feed your plants 3-4weeks, pro mix has nothing (the correct one). So, you will need to feed them throughout the grow…
Hey! I am in Central Maine. I usually put plants outside on June 01. I start my seeds, then Rapid Rooters, then soil. I grew 75 plants last year (all for myself)
hi @4canna2grow0 , welcome to GN. Good luck with finding a good soil recipe and keeping your costs down. There are loads of inexpensive ways to fertilize your own soils with the right nutrients. Give GN a search for some good soil recipes, look at the resources you can use around you and find a way that suits your needs.
Sent you a DM. @4canna2grow0
Yep she’s a lady
She has us fooled with the madmax get up avatar.
Hey that is me. 2 years ago. @preybird1:green_heart:
@PreyBird1 you have a BADASS avatar yourself!
Always impressive, my friend!
Yeah she’s a well put together sexy old grow guru (regulars )
Yes u can love me I’m good for that hahaha
Your a good person bob your loved by many. I’m off to bed but can you dm tomorrow I wanna pick your mind on some outside soil?
Lol can remember how I did that green heart bob lol
Sure! Talk tomorrow. Night @MrBlue
Thank you Bob, getting ready for outside escapades lol In the planning mode what all I need.
Well thank you @bobette your more awesome! I would have replied sooner but i got involved in the garden lol. Anyways always nice to see you here. We all need help and we can “grow” together!
Peace out my man. Im still burning the candle. up at 6 in bed at midnight. Now im going down to rotate the drying buds.
I mix Promix with Fox Farm Ocean potting soil 50/50. Then I use Happy Frog as topical feed. 2-3 times per grow. Then I feed 2 x a week throughout the grow about 30-50% of recommendations 300-600 PPM. See the plants growing faster, I increase feed to 750 PPM.
For a super soil mix. I am using Nectar for the Gods NGOS3004 One Shot Granules, 4 lb Soil Amendment
Grow big or go home! Lol
I grow both Auto flower and Photoperiod
Key to auto flowers is Low PPM feeds throughout. 500PPM or lower.
