Newbie here, first grow a mess. Now I have (4) 3 gal pots of used soil (ffof). I have no garden to dump soil in. Can it be rejuvenated with soil additives? TIA
I just throw mine away (pot & soil) after each grow. I thought about trying to re-use it, but figured why, new pots and soil ($50-$60 each grow) are a small price to pay for the ounces I get from the plants…
Not sure what others do…
Thanks . I’m leaning that way. I can’t help but to envision little clouds of perlite floating past my window.
I agree with @Ron330 your plants used up a lot of the the nutrition in the soil. In my opinion cheaper to get new soil.
Did you transplant, finish grow, or plant die etc. Cause 3 gallon pots seem awful small for a matured plant
I reuse it to a point. I will flush old soil then use a little on top when I plant seedlings. That way they don’t have any issues with hot soil.
Throwing my used soil in my compost bin and recharging it. Becomes part of the compost and gets reused in couple months.
If money is tight, there a things on Amazon that recharge the soil. I grow in coco, and reuse it everytime. Not sure but I think @blackthumbbetty reuses her soil
I usually just tossed mine in the garden I know you said you didn’t have one. So You could always fill up a few low spots in the yard.
Oh, me? Nah, I toss mine outside into a bare spot in the woods. That bare spot is growing with so many lush wild plants, now!
I’d reuse mine if I had a workshop or garage to use to store it/recharge it. Fox Farms Happy Frog makes a soil conditioner that I’ve often thought I’d use if I did that.
Hi HornHead, I’ve heard about recharging, but I’ve yet to hear anyone mention it. It’s tempting to do it, but it’s adding another
stress point. As a first time grower who really messed up 4 Gorilla Glue, I’m a little gun shy making changes.
Me thinks it’s toss it out time . Out to the trash.
