That sounds like a pretty decent mix.

How do you plan on giving the plant(s) phosphorous and potassium later in the season?

darn no one.. heres a better description... 80 pounds of potting soil(dosent say cubic feet) 40 pounds of manure and 8 quarts of perlite.. the soil is nice and fluffy dosent compact like it seems to be a good mix the way it feels... and the potting soil also has dolomite limestone which i think i heard is good? although if i had to guess id say the bag size is 1 cubic feet maybe 1.5.


rightbefore i entered this you replied wow lol
umm as for P and K i was thinking of just using nutes? like fox farm or something??? buying the grow big ,big bloom and tiger bloom? is 1 quart of each gonna be enough for like 10 - 15 plants?

and im gonna start giving them veg nutes*grow big) just after 3 weeks from seed maybe 4. once they start flowering ill give them big bloom and tiger bloom not really sure how to use these yet but im sure it explains it on the directions LOL. im also growin a few autos and will just give them flowering nutes and no veg nutes as ive read this is the way to do it.

Seems like a lot of manure for the amount of soil, I would add some more perlite if you're gonna stick to that ratio.
