Yo, my name’s Dan and I’m here to tell you that when it comes to growing weed, the soil is everything. All the problems that cultivators face come from soil issues, so it’s high time (pun intended) that I teach you how to create the perfect super soil mix.
Now, I know some of y’all prefer hydroponics and soilless media for rapid plant growth and optimized root aeration, but let me tell you, organic weed grown in natural pH buffer soil with beneficial microbial life is where it’s at. So, we’re gonna merge the best of both worlds to create a hybrid super soil mix that’s optimized for cannabis.
Here’s how to do it in five easy steps:
Step One: Mix the media
You’ll need coco coir, bagged soil or organic compost, vermiculite, and perlite. Mix 3.5 gallons of each of these with 5.5 gallons of bagged soil in a large container or with a shovel.
Step Two: Add natural amendments
Add 1 cup of bat guano, kelp meal, alfalfa meal, and dolomite lime to the base medium. Then add 1/4 cup of mycorrhizae powder to jumpstart the microbial life in the super soil mixture.
Step Three: Transplant your green beauties
This super soil recipe is not intended for seedlings, so transplant juvenile cannabis plants that exhibit a minimum of 3-4 nodes.
Step Four: Cruise control
Water your plants without a pH or nutrient meter. The dolomite lime will buffer the pH naturally to a usable range for your marijuana crop.
Step Five: Monitor your cannabis plants
Watch out for positive signs like raised and healthy-looking leaves and quick growth, while negative signs include burned or curled-in leaf tips and stunted growth.
Now you’re probably thinking why you should choose our super soil mix over store-bought soil mix. Well, let me tell you the benefits:
Optimized root zone aeration – perlite and coco coir allow roots to breathe.
Enhanced microbial life – mycorrhizae fungus extends root uptake capability.
Natural pH buffer – dolomite lime maintains pH between 6.0-6.5.
Enough nutrient for the grow cycle – alfalfa, bat guano, and kelp meal provide enough nutrients for most cannabis strains.
Lightweight and readily available – ingredients for the super soil mix are readily available and lightweight.
Perfectly balanced – this mix retains enough moisture and provides adequate drainage simultaneously.
