Welcome to the community. You have inly a couplw post’s you can do the first 24 hours here. :+1:

I try too keep it simple and use FF Happy Frog. I usually add only worm castings and 20 to 30% perlite (for aeration and to prevent compacting.) I do use mycos (it is really great stuff,) but mycos is expensive so rather than mixing it into the soil I will sprinkle around a tablespoon as I layer in each 2 or 3 inches of soil.

Good luck and welcome to the community.

No it’s a ratio thing. Too much of any one thing causes lockouts on the others.

okay thanks , tbh im nervous i wont get my amounts right , is there a ratio chart that would cover all of this by any chance? subcool adds things in a certain order but my batch has alot more in it , i know i was gonna go light on the blood meal and bat guano , and use the bat guano as a light top feed throughout veg, and id go light on the fish bone meal and use some of that as a light top feed for bloom

Yeah I don’t do super soil; I do living soil. I’m really not the guy to help you with that. Maybe @garrigan62 has a chart or can offer more insight.
