    Default Decent compost for mother plants

    Anyone know a decent compost for mother plants. I want something I can buy off the shelf and just use plain tap water for at least a short while then some simple nutrients to feed.

    Tried Verve and wasn't impressed it was full of all sorts of fly's and insects.

    I have never grown in compost so a nutrient recommendation would also be appreciated if I can't feed them my General Hydroponics 3 part.

    In the US finding good soil is difficult. Many times even the high end / expensive cannabis specific soils are coming with pests. Even if it was produced properly it can pickup pests while waiting to be sold. I am very tempted and motivated to build my own soil just so it can be pest free but it takes space I dont really have.

    Currently I am using the semi organic miracle grow soil from a big box store. First few batches were great. Current batch had mites and gnats.

    I don't have any trouble finding great soil, and when I get mine I spry it down with neem oil, and wait about A week, stir it up, and plant my plants. Then I spry the top layer of my soil with seedlend in it, and I don't have any Bugs. You get rid of the bugs before you put it in your tent. lol



    I don't know what it is with you northern people and your bugs. I have tons of bugs here in Florida, but I don't have them in my soil or tent. Mix 50/50 and perlite, with this Florida sand with some organic's, and you got good soil.

    That’s the problem mate you ain’t getting what you want off the shelf, you want life easy I suggest you just start making your own but I would go for the bio char stuff at the organic gardening catalogue, it’s got your bennies in it aswell
