Going to be growing once I get some seeds...but
    #125207 - 09/24/08 02:33 AM (8 years, 2 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.
