    Soil Question


    0 Not allowed!
    Whats the best soil for growing and at the same time it drains well?

    The soil mix I'm using Black Gold holds water so long I'm watering about once every 2 or 3 weeks.

    From what I understand the grow medium should dry out fast so that you can water it once or twice a week, what medium would do this?

    I would like to stay away from Hydro.

    Thanks

    Coco Coir for superior aeration of the roots. (coconut fibre) Wash it well before using. https://www.vgrove.com/index.php

    I'm not sure if it's the best soil out there, but I use sweet frog. It has a good water retention and decent drainage. If you are having drainage issues, try adding some perlite to your medium. You could also try planting in bags, or to save some money drill a few extra holes in the sides of your planters. It will allow for more drainage and better ventilation for your roots.

    I like your thinking about the holes being drilled in them pots. . . But only a few won’t make much difference in that proposed advantage. That’s why I often suggest people if looking for a superior, awesome root aeration, and drainage System. Check into the air-pots.

    I’m a hydro hound, but I do want to try a couple of air-pots next round...
