If you are on the hunt for the best soil mix for cannabis seedlings, we have you covered. A good grower knows to have great plant, you need a great start.
The soil mix we will be covering for cannabis seedlings will contain a good balance of aeration to moisture ratio. We do this so your plants roots can take in oxygen and expand to its hearts content. The bigger the roots get, the bigger the plant.
So whats the best soil mix for cannabis seedlings?
Just about everyone has their own idea on the best soil mix for cannabis seedlings, some work, some don’t. Our specific mix involves the use of 50% coco coir, 50% good outdoor soil. Add a bit of Bergman’s Seedling Fertiliser according to the feeding table below. One of them is for soil grows the other is for hydro.
Why Coco Coir?
Coco Coir is probably the most aerated soil you can get. It absorbs water quickly and flushes it just as fast. This is good so chemicals don’t build up in your grow if your using chemical based fertilisers. Mixing this with good soil helps to maintain nutrients in the soil.
You can pick up coco coir from Bunnings in bricks or bags. Bricks will expand as you water them while the bags are already fluffed out. You can ask the people where you buy the coco coir from how to use it if you need. But its pretty straight forward. You just add water and break up the bricks.
Why Outdoor Soil?
Good outdoor soil usually contains some nutrients and has the right composition for most plants to grow in. Cannabis itself is a weed that can grow almost anywhere but by giving good outdoor soil mixed with coco coir, it gives amazing aeration and perfect composition.
For good soil, just look for anywhere where there is lush green vegetation growing in the ground and dig from there. Good soil is usually dark, moist and may contain worms.
Why Bergman’s Seedling Fertiliser?
Grow Time is specifically formulated for the vegetative phase of marijuana (beginning growing phase). So by using this fertiliser, you give your plant what it needs from the start.
Can I use this soil mix as an all around grow medium?
You most definitely can. Plenty of growers use this soil mix as a grow medium for their plant all the way till it flowers (buds). Just make sure to change fertilisers accordingly to the different life cycles of marijuana.
For the first two weeks of growing use Bergman’s Seedling Fertiliser, for the next 4 weeks use Grow Time and for the last 8 weeks use Flower Time.
If you follow the feeding schedule above, you will find your plant loving you for it. It will grow large and provide potent buds for you to smoke.
