    Hey I am planning on doing an indoor grow with soil, so I am just wondering exactly what I need in terms of Soil, and types of nutrients. I've heard fox farm is the best for weed, but I'm not sure what kind of nutrients to get? Are these nutrients liquid? Do I mix these nutrients into the water when I water my plants?

    Ok I was just looking where I could buy some fox farm soil and I can't find it. I live in Canada so is this a problem? Also where is a good place to buy seeds that ship to Canada?

    the ocean forest soil, by far the best for me so far !!!

    and then the three pack of nutes ( GROW BIG, BIG BLOOM, TIGER BLOOM )

    here is a link ...FoxFarm Soil & Fertilizer Company

    Canada sells seeds. Look on the back of most high times for the ad from ontario seed bank. Fox fam is a great soil!

    I was just reading about a soil called Promix, has anyone heard of it? Also it says [FONT=Arial, Arial, Helvetica]Promix also contains agents to stabilize the PH levels (measure of acidity) at 5.5 to 5.7 thus eliminating the problem of adjusting PH levels of the water which is crucial to indoor growing.

    5.5 to 5.7 might be low according to this reference i use:

    http://www.buzzgrower.com/growingproblems1.html

    "The correct pH for marijuana is 6.3 - 6.8 in soil and 5.5 - 6.1 in a hydroponic system."

    Before i started growing I wanted to get that ocean fox farm one the guy posted above. I ended up being lazy and getting something local instead taking the time to get some fox farm.

    I can't tell you from experience, but I see Fox Farm brought up and suggested more than any other soil I have seen suggested, and I've heard people say they tried it and loved it, I am gonna go with the ocean one next grow for sure.

    also from the foxfarm website about the ocean soil:

    "[FONT=Verdana,Arial,Helvetica]Garden tip: Perfect for containers and ready to use right out of the bag. Ocean Forest® is pH adjusted at 6.3 to 6.8 to allow for optimum fertilizer uptake. There’s no need for nitrogen fertilizers at first; instead try an organic blend like FoxFarm Big Bloom™ Liquid Plant Food to encourage strong branching and a sturdy, healthy growth habit."

    I now want it even more considering its claiming exactly the pH range I've read to use lol

    I also would like to use it too but I can't find it here in Canada. Does anyone know of any local plant stores or anything in Canada that sell fox farm?

    These locations arent in Canada. I would like to find a local garden store in Calgary, Alberta that sells Fox Farm products but can't find one, can anyone help me out? Maybe some companies will ship these products?

    Is one of these bags big enough to grow a total of 10 plants maybe do a few clones so like 15 or 20?

    im using 1 gallon pots and can get just over 20 clones planted.

    Also, on their site BIGMIKE posted earlier, they have a feeding schedule showing their recommended use of the nutes.
