ENTRY 5 - SOIL SELECTION
My goal is to start small and eventually evolve as I gain more knowledge. Hydroponics will likely be in my future or creating my own organic compost soil mixture…one thing is for certain, the way I approach this hobby will change with each grow.
Soil was an after thought if I’m being honest. I just assumed I would buy a bag of organic soil and have at it. Again, after reading I discovered I was wrong. However, I decided to take the easy approach for my first grow. I dont want to worry about anything except for learning. The solution came while reading an email sent by ILGM after I ordered the seeds. There was a link for a Pot for Pot all inclusive kit.
I did some research and read reviews and it seemed to be a good no thought way to proceed. Here is the link:
“Buy outdoor and indoor marijuana growing kits – a Pot for Pot” https://apotforpot.com
The kit includes soil, fertilizer, a 5 gallon pot and some various other things. I have not received it yet and I don’t know how much more expensive it is, but my hope is that it will have everything I need.
I will say that I am pretty disappointed in their delivery. I ordered it on a Saturday, selected and paid $40. for 2 day shipping and I am still waiting 6 days later. I checked up on why and it turns out that they don’t get packages picked up until Tuesday night which basically eats eliminates 2 day Shipping.
So I guess I ended up paying over $150. for soil and a pot…I am exaggerating a bit on what you get, but I just think 2 day shipping should mean 2 business days from when you order, not 2 days from when the company feels like shipping your order.
I should be planting today or tomorrow and will post pics. With a second light coming tomorrow I am going to set my tent up better.
