    50% Pro-mix
    25% perlite
    25% wormcastings


    or


    From your local Hydro store get some Promix, vermiculite and Perlite.
    Mix in the portions of 50% promix, 35% perlite and 15% vermiculite. This mix is nice and loose and will promote great and fast root growth. All though it doesn't retain water that well it is good for beginners because it will help safeguard against over watering. Plus if a beginner runs into problems with PH or over fertilization the properties of this soil make it quick and easy to remedy.

    100 % organic compost ph balanced straight up with canna terra nutes , tastes is fantastic and very smooth to smoke . Stays nice and loose but could be mixed with soil to help retain moisture and is very forgiving

    I had absolutely no problems with sunshine pro mix no.4, why not just use that?? instead of buying a shitload of stuff that already comes in 1 big package??? I dont really understand besides the fact that you can monitor the Ph levels better..... but like I said, NO ISSUES what-so-ever

    The person originally asked for recipies for mixes. So that is why they got that they got. Nobody is saying you can't just use right out of the bag. I do a lot.

    Last time i'll go off topic I promise. that is a good point just using str8 sunshine but I would sooner have it a little airy then a little heavy. hench perlite, i grew that little plant(Avatar pic) in a somewhat compost mix using molasses next to an identical clone in a str8 bag mix. the compost molasses has my vote. like i've heard say, feed the soil as it will feed your plants. I believe molasses not only feeds your plant but also the micro organism's n stuff videoman40 has an awesome thread on that.

    please stay away from fox farm,I can't count the times Ive seen shotty soil from their trash. roots organic is an awesome base, but you should just type in "subcool super soil" in the search man that stuff works something fierce.

    Ur set man jus mix her up and wait 2 weeks then plant it's well worth it and u won't be dissapointed I used subcool ss and didnt have time to wait so I vegged for 2 weeks in straight foxfarm light warrior then transplanted to 7 gallon pots with the botto
    Half supersoil and the top half lightwarrior add a lil perlite and plants were just beasts pulled around 3 ounces off all of em wish i still had pics good luck And may u be blessed with massive buds

    Jus a question though what strain are u growing and for the azomite u should be ok without it
