Adding sand to soil

From a fellow grower: can I add sand to happy frog soil?

You can, but most growers don’t. If you are looking for something to loosen the soil up, then consider using perlite.

Agree, perlite or vermiculite. Sand would be too dense, I believe.

I didn’t think vermiculite was that good to use, only in seedlings? Thought I read it retains to much water would not let soil dry out enough ?

You may be right.

Yes, use vermiculite where water retention in important. Cannabis prefers wet and dry cycles. It’s best to use perlite.

I put 20% by volume of perlite when I mix my soil. I use Happy Frog and perlite and mykos is all I add.
