grow bag question??
    #393749 - 04/01/10 02:38 PM (6 years, 8 months ago)

hi so tell me if this is okay what i did. I took my master nursery organic potting soil 1 cubic bag. dumped the soil from the into a garbage bag then put that back into the soil bag. it stands about 12 inches high and 10 inches wide. 1 cubic of soil. i mixed a little perlite and master nursery bumper crop. i plan on digging a hole and putting this in. with holes at the bottom. Is this a good amount of soil/ good idea for my plants outdoors?

Where are you getting these ideas? why not just use the bag of soil, why put it in a trash bag, then put it back in the original bag?

I think you have a lot of learning to do and you shouldn't start any plants until you have the basics down.

You have the internet, the ultimate learning resource, you can't just rely on the forum to answer every question you have. Start doing some research.

well if you're growing them in the bag then how on earth does the soil around it matter even the slightest? Worm laden soil is fantastic, but worms can't chew through plastic bags man.

just dig a hole about the size of a 5 gallon bucket and just dump some nice soil in it. that way your plants are growing in your nice soil until their roots hit the surrounding soil. Sounds like your surrounding soil is good enough that they'll be happy no matter where the roots go.

For the record though, potting soil is not good soil.

You're looking for garden soil not potting soil. It sounds like you got nice, high quality potting soil, but it's still meant for being used in pots. If you're planting them outside you're going to want garden soil. I'm not a soil expert though so wait until Inverted or Inbred_gimp chimes in here. 

I would dig the holes big enough to hold about 1 full bag of soil. usually the bags are 1 cubic foot and a cubit foot is approximately 7 gallons.

im growing a vigoruous outdoor strain thats pretty hardy. what im thinking of doing is just using my soil like you said and let the thing beast out into the natural soil. Im growing 7 regular marijuana and 15 autos and the autos im just using around 3 gallon buckets since they have a short life span and short height. is this cool? attitude says the lowlife ak47 has a life span from seed to finish of 70 days im gonna do a grow log on this cuz i cant find one for outdoors and id love to see this lol cuz ak47 is potent and if i can harvest 1oz of each plant id be more than pleased in 70 days that is daaamn. 5 fem ak47 and 10 reg short riders. would 3 gallons be fine for these outdoors?

Since the auto flower has such a short life span, you may consider planting it a bit later than the others, like middle of may - June 1st'ish give or take a week.. Because the sun gets a little stronger into the summer months and by the time they start to flower the sun should be starting to change spectrum a little lower. This should give them a little more of what they actually need for flowering, even though they will flower under any light spectrum.. And you may notice a little better yield.
