Soil from scratch
    #814583 - 06/08/16 07:02 AM (5 months, 24 days ago)

Hi dear grower community, ladies 'n' gentlemen, dear friends and enemies !

I have a major problem mixing my first pot soil, the problem is I can't buy any premixed soil bags, and many of those items listed in supersoil mixes by brand names only.

Anyone can guide me finding all required soil parts/materials for a good super soil WITHOUT NAMING BRAND NAMES ?
like a soil mix only using organic materials, but please do not give me a to-buy-list of fox, bloom, .etc
sorta things I can find or make.
i'm gonna make my own blood and bone meal. have access to lime, epsom, worm casting, bird's guano, perlite, composted leaf, cow manure (leached and composted).

Plaese help me out, my seeds are gonna get delivered to me in a week or so.

Perlite, cococoir, peatmoss, dolimite lime small amout of organic charcoal like wood from a fire thts black with lil grey= soil tht indoor i get avarage of 2 1/2 lbs and outdoors i get an avarage upwards of 10+ each plant in 30 gal tubs both on outdoor and indoor but i also use  growheavy aka heavy 16, zhu, rhizo blast, generalhydro,advanced nutrients most of their tribes, and last but not least myco-fusion, for my ferts root styms and neutes and micro and macro neutes and ferts. It is cheaper to buy ss#4 bales tho they only 30$ a single bale and its pre mixed but if ur a dyi type then make ur own soil and use some of the lists feeds and youll have an amazing yeild if u take good care and show em love. Hope this helps.

:takingnotes:
Sounds like a supersoil to me, its probably going to be a bitch to gather all that in one pot though.

what's a good source of Mg for soil ?

Since I don't have access to dolomite lime, i'm gonna use ordinary lime, and some crushed eggshell + some Mg source.

Thanks

Epsom salt?

Magnesium Sulfate, used all the time in gardens as a magnesium source.

yeah, i have it, kinda was looking for alternative for that.
It's my first time mixing my own soil, and am worried about making some deep mistake.
cause I read somewhere using Epsom it's easy to over sulfur your soil.

Can you give me a volume or weight or proportion for mixing those items i've named ?

I definitely can't, I don't mix custom soil enough to have any real knowledge related to that.

But I can tell you that most of the manures/compost that you listed are all good sources of Mg.

One great ingredient i have found works great for organic growing is silkworm castings.  Check out my journal to see results

What kind of feeding schedule do you follow with that mix?
