Here’s organic “super” soil up close

When cannabis growers talk about “super” soil, they’re usually referring to soil that has been amended with slow-releasing organic nutrient sources, and then composted for several months (learn more about super soil).

This is what kind of soil to get if you don’t have any “good” soil available, but want something that is known to work for growing cannabis.

Fox Farm has been around for over 30 years and makes some of the most common types of “cannabis soil” (at least in the US). They have several great soil mixes, including “Happy Frog” which is a great choice for seedlings and clones.

Kind “Super” Soil (Living Soil)

What should you look for in good cannabis soil?

Generally, anything labeled as an “organic potting mix” will work. This type of mix hasn’t been amended with chemical slow-release nutrients, which is one of the main things you want to avoid with soil for cannabis. I know it sounds like heresy, but even the Miracle-Gro version of “organic potting mix” will work okay, because unlike their original potting mix it doesn’t contain chemical nutrients (though it still has poor drainage and moisture retention – almost any other type of organic potting mix is better!).

I stopped coming on these forums, before you even joined, because of people like you. My response was something that was informative and helpful. Your response was nothing more than childish name calling because you have nothing better to do obviously. Have fun with that.

also , if you stopped coming to these forums, what are we doing having this conversation??

Miracle Grow Seed Starter soil is great for sprouting your seeds and getting them through the delicate seedling stage. Then transfer them over to regular Miracle Grow soil (or a soil called Sta-Green they sell at Home Depot, the soil is a little trickier than miracle grow because it has water absorbing crystals in it).

For a first time grower I would recommend Miracle Grow. All you have to do is add ph’d water. You don’t need to add any nutes. Miracle Grow has time released nutes in it. The trick is, to make sure you don’t over water your plant. The time released nutes are water activated. So when you water your plants, you’ll be feeding them as well.

I know a lot of people will disagree with me, but that’s because they don’t know what they are talking about.
