Miracle-GRO is a well-known company when it comes to producing grow dirt that is some of the best soil for marijuana. While all of Miracle-GRO’s soils are superb, this potting mix is some of the best soil for growing weed indoors. Your plants will grow twice as large and won’t require feeding for at least six months.

You can purchase the Black Gold organic potting soil, another best soil for weed, in quantities of one or two packages to help make your purchase more convenient. A good option for novice gardeners, this soil is considered the top-rated soil for weed since it contains small pieces of perlite to keep the soil loose and aerated.

You’ll need the best soil for weed to help you meet your growing goals. There are lots of factors to consider when you are trying to find the best soil for cannabis, but we’re here to help you make sense of what you should be looking for.
There’s something to be said about keeping your marijuana growing operations private. Whether you’re worried that your friends, family, or…
You may want to mix about half of your soil with a combination of equal parts coco coir. These soils are made out of coconut husks and can help improve your drainage. Regardless of the type of soil you choose, make sure you take it easy on the fertilizer in the first few weeks or stages of growing your mairjuana plants – you will want to see how your plants react to the soil medium first.
Once you have your soil, you’re ready to go! Order your seeds and your plants will be flowering in no time.
Happy Frog is by far my personal favorite. It is a peat based medium that offers awesome air and water retention. It has organic goodies such as earth worm castings, bat guano, humic acid and composted forest humus. Along with beneficial microbes mycorrhizae and bacteria to help break down organic matter and help feed the plant’s roots. Happy Frog isn’t too “hot” it will not burn your seedlings or clones and it has great pH stability. Actually, I start my seeds in solo cups full of pure Happy Frog soil and have never had better success.
Recipe for Success
1 2.0 cubic foot bag of Happy Frog soil
3 cups of General Organics Ancient Forest Alaskan Humus
2 cups of Earthworm castings
2 tablespoons of Recharge
This is a soil recipe made by one of the best online growers named Koma. Koma used Oregonism XL but I substituted it with Recharge.
If you want a worry free grow medium follow these simple guidelines. Happy Frog soil is perfect for seeds and clones but will need food after a couple weeks. I like to add a few ingredients to the mix when I transplant into larger containers. I start seeds in 16-20 oz solo cups of just Happy Frog soil, feeding them only Recharge and enzymes for the first 2 weeks. The ideal pH range for this mix to water in is 6.5-6.8 with 6.6 or 6.7 being optimal. After exactly 2 weeks they will be transplanted into a 1 or 2 gallon pot of Happy Frog soil plus amendments for 3 weeks exactly to veg then transplanted into their final containers, I use 7 gallon pots to flower in. I let them veg in the 7 gallon pots of soil mix an additional 2-3 weeks before flowering. The soil recipe is great for cannabis and with the added humus and castings help the plants grow throughout veg without the need for much fertilizer.
As more and more people are taking on the commitment of growing their own dank, many questions arise. And which soil to use is one topic that is always debatable. I’d like to take a few minutes to talk about one popular soil company called Fox Farm. Fox Farm has a few different types of soil available for you to choose from. Light Warrior, Planting Mix, Ocean Forrest, and Happy Frog are the main types of soil they offer.
Light Warrior is exactly as the name implies. It is a very lightweight, fast draining airy mix that has a lot of perlite in it. It is good for starting seeds or clones in. A wetting agent helps when using Light Warrior to help penetrate the soil. Planting mix is thicker with good organic amendments and holds more moisture. Ocean Forrest is a very popular soil on the market and is loaded with lots of nutrients, almost too much for younger plants, and can be downright deadly to seedlings and clones.
The cons or negatives to using this soil are that it is a peat based media. When left too dry peat has the tendency to “concrete” or harden up making watering sometimes difficult. The water will just run down the inside of the pot and straight out the bottom. This can be remedied by watering before it gets too dry. I like to water in 1.5 to 2 gallons when they are in 7 gallon pots and they are happy for about 3 days. Also, a big issue with Happy Frog (and alot of other soils right now) is fungus gnats. This can be eliminated by using an azadirachtin product such as Azamax.
I hope this will help you as it helped me. I’ve had years of success using this soil recipe and I’m sure you will too. As always be safe and happy gardening! MrBowser
