    Hi I bought couple bags of kellogs patio plus soil. Heard good things about it and its readily available. I also bought STA-Green Vermiculite. The bag says 100% vermiculite on it and it doesnt say anything about nutes in it so i figure it should be ok. I was wondering if this is ok vermiculite to use and also what the mixture of soil to vermiculite should be. Thank You

    i'm using around 75%soil, 20% peralite and 5% vermiculite. i've been told too much vermic can hold too much water and give u root rot. i'm almost 5 weeks into vegging and alls well.
