So against the advice of others I went ahead and picked up some gorilla glue FEM for a first time grow. I now have the equipment and seeds but I’m on the fence now about which medium to use. I have to say Mr. Canuck makes it seem pretty easy but before I go that route I wanted to see what the opinions of others are on a first time grow and which media would be best for a first timer. I understand the coco method Canuck uses and it seems simple. Problem is getting decent coco anywhere near where I live is ridiculous. I already have some happy frog and ocean forest from the wife so that’s already on site.
My thinking was if I use coco I can make adjustments faster if necessary and amending the soil with dry premix seems no brainer as well. In soil I feel like any changes are much slower and the soil retains a certain amount of nutrients so reusing the soil may not be the best thing to do where it seems with coco I can reuse several times and flush it,
