    go to wilco's and get any old soil with nute pellets in if you dont wanna buy nute's.
    also yeh I allways put a layer of chunky pebbles/stones at the bottem to aid drainage as i dont usually use perlite.
    as for the repotting issue somone mentiond there is no problem. with autos it is best to plant it straight into it's final pot so no repotting is needed. the bigger the better in pot size.
    personally I would go for a basic soil and get some proper nutrients, but thats just me.

    Also while I'm on the subject of soil, is it a good idea to put a layer of stones/gravel at the bottom of the pot and then put the soil onto that.
    If you use them, Id advise cutting the mesh type thing around the sides that holds them together when you pot them into soil. Roots can get tangled in it. I didnt cut mesh on first grow and there is a definate improvment now Ive done it on my second grow. Make sure they are moist though as they will fall apart otherwise. Very stressful when that happens haha.

    I've used Jiffy pellets for years mate with no probs what so ever, that mesh thing is what keeps em together, so for me i would defo not cut em them off as you will just end up with a lump of soil.
    Just soak em in the sink in warm water for about 5 mins, give em a press in between your fingers to make sure there are no hard bits left inside them, squeeze out a bit of excess water and your good to go

    Hi Zero, I guess if it works for you, then thats ok.
    Personnally, I was convinced that the roots werent all that on my first attempt and when I harvested, one of the 2 plants had come unstuck in the mesh and had shit root system. Co-incidentally, at that time I bought Jorge Cervantes Bible and he advises taking off mesh also. That was good enough for me!
    But each to their own I guess. This crop is growing quicker though.

    I have tried many soils, and controversially, bnq seedling compy is the best and has a great light texture and waters very well, even when it's bone dry.
    Becomes inert quickly so ready with the feed, but that's part of the appeal. Only soil I have used that has never had some sort of bug arriving in the groom. Westlands mp is also excellent.
    About 3p per litre.

    yeh I agree with the swilly.
    I once got a big bag of the stuff most recomended by my hydro shop and I found the cheap stuff from B&Q to be just as good.

    stones and gravel in the pot is a bad idea, it raises the ptw (perched water table) higher up the pot and you want it to be at the bottom of the pot

    totaly agree with the biobizz use the whole range myself with amazing results pulled 7 and 3/4 ounces DRY off 1 auto white dwarf , use the light mix in a small pot for 1-2weeks then into your final pot with the all mix that will give you another 2 weeks of the all mix to use if you do it in the light mix first , you dont realy need the grow nute but i would go with the bloom as you will need it and give it space to grow MORE SPACE MORE BUDS MATE .
