Just wanted to pass on my experience using this grow medium. I’m lazy and i like keeping it simple. I’ve used SoHum living soil for a few years now. It’s at the high end for pricing. But I do not add nutrients or worry about Ph. Seed to harvest just add water. I see where some growers add nutrients. This causes an imbalance in how the medium is meant to work. Also, I see where some plants are burning after germination. It’s too hot for seedlings. A 50/50 mix of SoHum and sphagnum peat moss in a quart container until the roots hit bottom works well. I then transfer into 7 gal cloth bags. The process I use is to “seat” the quart container into the medium of the 7 gal cloth grow bag until ready to transplant. When that puppy hits the pure SoHum after established I can hear it singing in the night like Little Shop of Horrors. For those squeamish about the price, consider the additional amendments and extra work involved. If your $45ish (1.5 cu ft) soil cost creates worry free growing ending up with a healthy 450 grams of medicine, I feel it’s totally worth it. Interested in hearing other thoughts on this.
Autos or photos?
I only use feminized and do not use auto flower as I like to time my flower period. Am going with SCROG this year. Just now germinating new crop. Will post photos and keep updated as time passes.
I started with the sohum soil. So far so good. I had a heavy hand at watering in the first 4 girls. I have got into the rhythm i hope. 1/4 gal ish
Every other day. They just flipped a few days ago. Fingers
The claim from SoHum is that its hard to over water if used in cloth bags due to the makeup of the soil somehow regulating the amount of water/nutrient delivery. Can’t vouch for that and I’m sure not gonna experiment. Good luck
Could you share some pictures of how the plants turned out using Sohum living soil?
I do not have pics from my last grow and am just germinating my next. Hit me up in June
Got up to 3 of 4 plants sad and droopy. Watered w2ith 1/4 ]gal each. Waking up now after 40 min. Have lights on full. PPFE ABOUT 920. Temp up to 83⁰ rh 45%. When i get to flower, that’s when they start going down hill. Flipped 2/10. First 2 pics are the girls that were flipped.
This pic is another 4 girls in veg with Sohum.
They go from this nice green to the duller green above.
