Had anyone used the FF Strawberry fields soil? If so, any opinions or suggestions?
@Uncleb welcome to I LGM forums!
Lots of good folks willing to help you out!
I hadn’t heard of it? Got a link on amazon or something or a pic of the bag so we can look at it?
Thanks for the reply.
Here is the back of the label. Not sure who is around this morning that is good with soils and I have never seed this type of FF Soil before so I will tag a couple of the mentors for assistance
PS I use FF Ocean Forest and Happy Frog…
Thank you, for your assistance.
Due to bat guano I use for seedlings, creative and flower plants would be fine
Do you think I should add about 25% perilite, as I do with FFOF?
@Uncleb doesn’t already have perlite in it and did you say you add more perlite to your Foxfarm ocean soil ? I would say if you’re adding that much to Fox Farm and you’re successful give it a shot I’ve never added any perlite to any of my Foxfarm before
When I removed my first grow, in FFOF, soil seemed very compacted. It was almost hardened. Thank you, for your input.
1/3 ffof to 2/3 Strawberry fields. I then add a little perlite and vermiculite and a dab of coco coir works great for autos. An area , (center of pot) ,approximately 6 “dia. and approximately 6-8” deep (use a 20 oz cup to make impression) I fill with Happy frog to make sure seedling doesnt get burn. 6 White widow autos just harvested mid July averaged 4 oz each dry weight. Excellent taste and very potent. Jack Herer autos end of April averaged 6 oz. Each except one I tried to top after 5th node only produced about 3 oz. Oops. Auto Bluetooths averaged about 3.5 maybe 4 oz. Grown indoors with 300w Viperspectra led over each plant on 27/7. So maybe that can shed light on ff strawberry fields.
I have been using this for two years and I love it. I use it through all stages. It will burn your seedlings if you are only using soil!
I just put my popped seed into FFSF today. The date stamp on the bag is 2016 lol. I hope it works out. They were out of Ocean Forrest and they only had this one bag of S.F.
