Best Soil for Marijuana

What about the Best Soil for Marijuana?

Fox Farm Ocean ForestSome of us growers don’t have the resources or time to make our own soil for our indoor plants. Custom soil mixtures are not complicated but they do require a host of ingredients that vary from one grower to the next and are a hassle to locate. If you prefer a ready-made soil mixture that is the best soil for marijuana right out of the bag, you want Fox Farms Ocean Forest soil.
 .
Ocean forest is the best soil for marijuana which consists of a blend of premium micronutrients, sea-going fish meal, crab meal, bat guano, and earthworm castings with sphagnum peat moss, forest humus, and sandy loam which gives ocean forest a texture that is light and aerated.
 .
Each bag is 1.5 Cu.Ft. of the best soil for marijuana that comes from the sea and the earth. It is pH balanced to 6.3 to 6.8 which optimizes the plants’ ability to absorb nutrients and water from the soil.
 .
The best soil for growing marijuana is perfect for indoor plants especially cannabis and is ready to use right out of the bag. You don’t need any NPK fertilizers at first but nutrients are highly recommended after about 3-4 weeks of growth if you want to get the best out of your plants. It is also recommended that you mix in perlite at around 30-40% because it helps aerate the soil by allowing more air around the roots and improves drainage. Along with fabric pots, this is effective in preventing mold and root rot caused by overwatering.

What about the best fertilizers for marijuana?

Fox Farm Nutrient TrioYou can buy a three pack of the best fertilizer for marijuana money can buy that are specifically made for your precious indoor plants. I personally use only Fox Farms Big Grow, Tiger Bloom, and Big Bloom nutrients because all the others I have tried do not compare to the results I get with this trio.
.
The best fertilizer for marijuana for the vegetative stage is Grow Big Hydro which encourages branch strength and a healthy-sturdy growth habit that produces dense compact growth ideal for pre-flowering indoor plants. The strengthened stem and branches help support the large dense buds that your plant will produce.
.
Then you can switch to the best fertilizer for marijuana during flowering the stage which is Tiger Bloom. Tiger Bloom is a very potent, phosphorous fertilizer that is fast acting. It is used at the first sign of flowering or bud set and you continue to use it until the last 10 to 14 days before harvesting.
.
Big bloom is used throughout all growing cycles for increasing nutrient cycling as well as to heal and grow strong root systems. Big Bloom is ideal for cannabis and all fruiting and flowering whether grown indoors or out.

    I liked reading your review about best soil for Marijuana,
    not only for Marijuana soil of good quality and elements is necessary for all types of farming.I see that you are promoting Fox Farms Ocean forest soil which already consists all the necessary elements, nutrients for plants, and earthworm castings etc.Keep up the good work.

      Fox Farm soil is what I recommend for those that don’t want to put in all the work of making and mixing your own soil. It has all the best ingredients and is very cheap. Building your own soil is kind of a hassle because you have to source out all the ingredients then mix them which can be tedious and makes a mess. I have made my own soil before but having it already made is soo much easier. Thank you for stopping by, come back if you have any questions.

    I’m a big believer in the medicinal powers of Mary Jane but I never knew that the nature of the soil was so important. However, it makes perfect sense and the mix you describe sounds like a very nutritious blend. Would you say that by using this soil, the yield increases at all? And if so, by how much?

    • Karl Hosch

      I can’t say if the yield will be any different than good normal soil mixtures because that really depends on the genetics of the plant, watering, quality of light, and nutrients. What good quality soil does is provide optimum starting point for your plants to grow. All the ingredients added to Fox Farms Ocean Forest will ensure your plant(s) get what they need from the start. 

      Marijuana has a voracious appetite which is why they benefit so well from the nutrients. The soil aids in the nutrients delivery to the plants roots so it can grow to its full potential and produce the best yields. 

      Thank you for the comment, feel free to come by again should you need anything. I am more than happy to help.

    Hi, Karl,

    Just read your post on the best soil for marijuana.
    I am in Canada and we will be able to grow our own here legally starting next year.

    I dabble in some tropical plants and a number of local vegetables but have never grown marijuana. The growing season here in SW Ontario is short, we have quite lengthy winters.

    I was planning on utilizing a greenhouse (with seedlings started in soil) so your information is very helpful.

    I would also be interested in your help in choosing the right seeds and in purchasing them when you have them available.

    Look forward to hearing from you.

    best regards,
    claudio

      It is my understanding that there is going to be a 4 plant limit as well as a 1 meter height limit. That being said, most marijuana plants will exceed that height easily especially if grown outdoors. There is one particular strain called Afghan Kush that will give you what you need and then some. They are known for their high yields, high CBD, high THC, and are very good for beginners. 

      If you are able to check back with me early next week, I will have those seeds available along with several others. I am currently working with an affiliate deal that would give my customers an exclusive discount on their awesome feminized seeds which come guaranteed to germinate.

      If you have any more questions, come on back and see me and I’ll do my best to help you out. If you don’t, I will look forward seeing you next week. Thank you for your comment!

    This is great! I personally use Fox Farm and they offer great soil. The quality is very good. Do you suggest plant potting or raised beds or does it matter? How can you get the most yield with the fertilizers and does it matter if it’s in a controlled environment (outdoors vs indoors)? I see you suggest three fertilizers, which do you recommend as the best?

    • Karl Hosch

      Yes, Fox Farm is an excellent soil. I use their soil as well. When I’m growing I prefer potting due to mobility and being able to move the plants if I needed to. 

      As far as the fertilizers go, the Big Grow Hydro is for vegetative stage, the Tiger Bloom is for flowering stage and the Big Bloom is used throughout the cycle. I would suggest using all three because they are made to work together. Simply put, they are giving the plant everything it needs to grow throughout its life cycle. 

      There is a big difference between indoor and outdoor yields. Generally most strains grow bigger outdoors,  which in turn, means higher yields. Very few strains grow better indoors.  They are able to accomplish this by extending the vegetative stage beyond normal durations in a controlled environment. For those few strains, this increases the yield. 

      I thank you for your comment and for stopping by. If you have any more questions I would be more than happy to assist you. Hopefully you’ll be back soon. Thanks again!

    This looks like legit soil. I have not been in the world of marijuana much, but I have heard it is a difficult plant to grow and groom. I think it is so interesting that this soil has sea-going fish meal. I feel like I have never heard of soil having that!

    • Karl Hosch

      Fish meal is used for nitrates and trace minerals. It’s a great soil conditioner that is good for your lawn and outdoor garden too.

      Yes, marijuana can be a difficult plant at times but come harvest time, you get to taste the fruit of your efforts, so it’s worth it in my opinion. 

      Thank you for stopping by and if you do ever come around to the world of marijuana, feel free to come back and see me.
