Roots organics soil
    #509736 - 12/29/10 06:06 PM (5 years, 11 months ago)

So, I just was conveniently eating dinner at the Italian restaurant across from the hydro store tonight. I've been using some really shitty soil, and I had a few extra dollars in my pocket so I went to go buy some FFOF which is what I usually like to use.


The girl working in the hydro store (SUPER CUTE) got in like a 20 minute talk about growing with me. I guess most people who walked in there and used to buy the Fox Farms soil have been switching over to this new stuff. I figured "oh, shes hustling me so I buy the more expensive stuff", but it turns out the stuff she was trying to sell me was $8 cheaper.

So, I just went for it. Put a few clones in some of it just now, and it seems real fluffy and nice. It drained out real well, and held water. It feels to be about the same as FF.

Anyone have specific experience with it? I read some reviews and it seems like everyone is raving about it...but I prefer to trust you guys because you know your shit around here.

Why should that mean it isn't real?

It's killer soil. :thumbup:

and to be honest with ya I've been testing this stuff out http://www.growery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/509124 and my results have been just as good as when I used FFOF. In fact if I was to go back to soil I'd use it over the Fox Farm because the stuff is 5 bucks a bag. :wink:

The company itself sucks.  They're based close to me, and all the growers in the area really hate them, they've done some shady things in the past.

  Their nutrient line up will drop your pH like a mother fucker.  I never tried the soil.  But FFOF is just fine.

$8 cheaper?! How much are you paying for FF? I usually get it for $10.

Out my way 707 is much more popular. I've seen people have way more success using 707 as a base when building soils.

I plan on using 707 to make subcools super soil for my outdoor crop this yr. I've seen some bad ass greenhouse grows done with this mix. I can't wait to try it. :vaped:

I don't know anything about their soil, but I can tell they put research into products that benefit cannabis. They seem to me like a better option than some of the other bottled liquid companies out there. They could suck for all I know, but they do use a lot of what I read are the best organic sources of nutrients for bud.

The most appealing potting soil I've seen is something called Just right XTRA organic soil. Seems like it's made with "heart" and not just mass manufactured.

Uh sorry to bump an old post, but just heard from a reliable source that "Roots Organics uses municipal waste as the base of their soil and is aware that it has root aphids, hemp russet mites, and plenty more bad shit."
