If you care to bring something into the world you should have enough paitence to understand how to care for it. I'd say you have a bit of reading to do...
the answer to your question is generally "an Organic soil ( to prevent you from taking in chemicals)"
- how big are your pots?
- do you have nutrients for your plants
- proper lighting ?
- safe grow enviroment ?
- do you understand plant timing with lights?
- what does a male look like?

These are just general things you should understand before growing...
Read the guide or hit up wiki "cultivation of marijuana"

Thanks elaspeinreason. I have a high pressure sodium light and the equipment for it, I have a safe growing environment, I have three seeds a friend gave me and I am germinating them now, I know a little about growing and am interested in learning more so I will be doing a lot of research. I also got a growers bible from my dad last year and I have been looking through that.

When my seeds germinate I plan on putting them in a small pint seize pot until they get bigger and I will then transfer them to gallon sized pots.

I was looking at Happy Frog potting soil, could I just use that? Sorry I’m such a newb, please have patience, I learn quick learner

Happy Frog potting soil = Fox farm?

I'd assume fox farm soil is a bit rich for seedlings.

Hmm, you could go with a simple light mix like 50% perlite 50% happy frog?

if you can get happy frog, go for ocean blend instead. its been composted for a longer time and is richer and smells nicer.


ive never had a problem with either for seedlings or cuttings.
