Going to be growing once I get some seeds...but
    #125207 - 09/24/08 02:33 AM (9 years, 6 months ago)

I plan on buying 15, 3 gallon planting pots, but can't figure out how to convert and calculate how much soil I will need for them.

I'm thinking about buying a few bags of 'Fox Farm - Ocean Forest Potting Soil' which is 1.5cubic feet for $30.00. how many bags would I need for 15 3 gallon pots?

Also, I will probably be going with a mixture of like 75/25 fox farm / perlite. So if there is math to increase the volume with the perlite, that would be cool.

1 cubic foot = 7.5 gallons, roughly.  http://www.google.com.tw/search?hl=zh-TW&q=cubic+feet+to+gallon&btnG=Google+%E6%90%9C%E5%B0%8B&meta=&aq=f&oq=

15 x 3 gallons = 45 gallons = 6 cubic feet = 4 bags.  75/25 is 3/4 dirt and 1/4 perlite....so 3 bags dirt and one equal sized bag of perlite.

I'm not gonna be doing any math or anything but I used Ocean Forest for years and 1 bag will fill 3.5 3gallon bags after packing the soil and whatever else you do to it as you fill the bag.

All creatures tremble when faced with violence. All creatures fear death, all love life. If we can only see ourselves in others, then how could we possibly hurt another creature?
