How to: Create Your Own Soil for Your Cannabis Seeds

When it comes to growing the finest cannabis possible, the soil you use most certainly matters. This is the growth medium for your plants and it needs to provide the plants with all the food, nutrients, water, and aeration needed for the plants to thrive.

Many people make the mistake of starting out with a bag of regular potting soil from the local garden center, only to be disappointed when their plants don’t do very well. This is because this all-purpose mixture does not contain what cannabis needs to grow.

Whether growing indoors or out, cannabis requires a certain set and amount of nutrients to grow abundantly, healthfully, and robustly. Even outdoors, the soil is not necessarily suitable to growing the highest quality green, which is why it is important to understand the basics of the mixing a soil that provides all that the cannabis plants need.

How to create a good soil mix, whether indoor or outdoor|

Traditional garden soil may seem like a good choice, but it is generally too hard and not aerated enough for cannabis plants. The nutrients infused in the potting mix are also a general nutrient blend which will not provide exactly what your cannabis plants need.

It is recommended to start with a high quality, organic soil base. This itself is actually a mixture of a number of different substances that, together, provide a good start for soil for your plants. A good organic soil base will include some sort of manure or guano, peat moss, pearlite, rock dust, oyster shell, compost, lignite, and more. These materials can usually be easily sourced from a specialty garden center.

Cannabis requires a specific set of nutrients for it to grow as big and strong as possible. Once you have a good base, you can source and create your own perfect blend of nutrients that will provide your plants with everything they need to thrive. Most often, your base will be missing certain nutrients that need to be supplemented. Worm castings (worm poop), bat guano, blood meal, Epsom salt, and dolomite are all wonderful additions to your soil mix that will provide your plants all the nutrients they need to grow bountiful.

Worm castings are vitally important as they eliminate the need for a soil conditioner. It can sometimes be difficult to find worm castings, but it is worth the effort as they will really help your plants. You can even produce your own worm castings by creating what is called a vermicomposting bin. This allows you to convert food and waste scraps into valuable castings.

The soil that your cannabis plants are grown in is intended to provide the plants with everything they need to grow and thrive. Your run-of-the-mill garden soil just doesn’t cut it for this type of gardening. This takes a little more specialized knowledge if you hope to get the best possible cannabis crop. Understanding the basics of what constitutes a proper soil mixture will help to ensure that your plants thrive and produce the best possible green you can grow.

regular dirt. no telling whats in that stuff. at the very least go to your local lowe’s or home depot and grab some of that miracle grow 3 month release mix for 10 bucks that should do the trick much better than common dirt. common dirt is just a lil too iffy if u want a decent yield. just my 2 cents.

congrats on the baby btw

jesus of Cannabis

regular dirt dosent have the nutrients that other specialty soils will have. To answer your question, yes you can, but for $5 a bag at Lowes pick up some Miracle grow.

No. In nature weed developed the trait of only being able to grow in dirt you buy from a store.

Id suggest getting a bag of perlite though. Possibly some peat moss depending on the soil you got around you. But yeah of course it can, that is where it came from originally don’t forget.

Welcome to RIU! You dont want to use regular dirt indoors. It gets compact and does not drain and Its a waste of time. You will have bugs and weeds growing in the crap and running around your growroom! You wont be happy! Fox Farms Ocean Forest or your own mix is the best. If you cant afford it make sure whatever dirt you get has been sterilized. Miracle Grow works but I dont like to smoke Synthetic fertilizers myself. Good Luck!

omg dude. dont depend on this to be a get rich quick scheme or even make some chump change your first go round. it takes time to learn. seems like you havent grown any type of plant in your life. i dont think you should depend on this to make u the money you need. just being realistic my friend.

growing outside on that much acreage. u need to make sure wild animals wont tear that shit up. rabbits love that stuff. especially when they are tender lil shoots. so many things can go wrong that can only be learned through experience. READ READ READ. you need to start with reading some journals on here and grow guides it’ll answer so many of your questions.

i like to get em started by dropping them in a cup of water and put that cup in a dark area. as soon as those babies crack put them in some germinating soil WITH NO FERTILIZERS. give it two weeks in that and then move em to the miracle grow dirt. good luck
