Summer time dirt grow


#1

Im thinking about growing in dirt because once it gets hot I can’t keep my reservoir temperatures down in a 5 gallon bucket. Plan on using a smart pot or the fabric pots and I was just wondering what type of dirt you guys use


#2

I’m in coco and I’m loving what I got going the PH is just funny if you let it dry out


#3

Ive never tried coco either how often does it have to be watered to keep from drying out?


#4

Promix hp or bx.


#5

Where you you get promix i haven’t seen that in the stores . Do you order it ?


#6

Amazon is where I get mine.


#7

I get my Promix at my local grow store or hardware store in grow season. I find most members on the forum use Fox Farm, Promix or coco. Some mix their own as well.

Coco will require more attention. I love it, personally. I’m having to feed daily once they get later in veg and into flower. When they’re younger, you can get away with skipping a day, but not any longer. Coco is designed to retain about 30% oxygen in the medium, making it hard to overwater. You do need to feed earlier than if you’re using a soil with nutes in it already. Coco has no nutes, so what you give them is what they get.
