What is the best soil I can get from lowes or home depot while I wait for my fox farm?

I may try that in the future but I think im gonna let her ride like this til harvest. I put a few new ones down yesterday.


@Skateallday55 here’s a good starting point. I have since upped the humic acid about 2 or 3 cups and add oyster shell and a few other things.

Subcools super soil 1/2 recipe

1/2 Recipe

4 large bags of a high-quality organic potting soil with coco fiber and mycorrhizae (i.e., your base soil)

12.5 to 25 lbs of organic worm castings

2.5lbs steamed bone meal

2.5lbs bloom bat guano

2.5lbs blood meal

1.5lbs rock phosphate

3/8 cup or 6 tablespoons Epsom Salts

1/4 cup or 4 tablespoon sweet lime (dolomite)

1/4 cup or 4 tablespoons azomite (trace elements)

1 tablespoon powdered humic acid


I’m gonna do that tonight. I’ll bring a tool from work.

This the stuff ?
23.95 :sweat_smile:


Correct. Price seems about what I pay for 1.5 ft³. In comparison the ff is $20 for same size bag.

It all depends really the state that you may be located in … Here in Ill I pay 25 or more for the large bags of Fox Farm but if I go to MI I pay 17 a bag… Taxes – suck


Facts. I spent 78 bucks 2 bags from amazon found local place that sold it and got 4 bags for 100 and the bags was bigger

The big bag of ffof is $11.99 at my hydro store

Thanks. Ready for next grow. I have one 2 weeks into flower rn. I just chopped that girl down last night
