Default Super Soil

I'm really new to growing but now that adult use has passed in CA (where I live) I feel like it's time to start growing. I've been reading up on super soil and was curious as to whether the formula listed in the article sounds like a good place to start:

Ingredients:
• Organic earthworm castings are a key ingredient of super soil.
6 bags x 10-gallon Roots Organic Soil (For a total of 60 gallons or 210lbs of soil)
• 2 bags x 50L (35 lbs) Biobizz Light-Mix soil (Total of 70lbs)
• 2 bags x 30 lbs Organic Earthworm Castings (Total of 60lbs)
• 1 box 6 lbs Fish Bone Meal (3-16-0) Note: 3-15-0 or 3-18-0 can also be used
• 1 cup Dolomite Lime (“prilled” if possible)
• ½ cup Azomite (0-0-0.2)
• 1 box 5 lbs Blood Meal (12-0-0)
• 1 bag 4 lbs Happy Frog Bat Guano (0-5-0)
• Ύ cup Epsom Salt
• (Optional) Up to 25% Perlite (for extra drainage)
• You can add live earthworms to the mix as an added bonus to keep your mixture loose. They will help to keep your soil healthy.
Directions:
• Put your ingredients in a large clear bin
• Mix it up for at least 5 minutes
• Put the lid on the bin and leave it in the sunlight
• Make sure the lid is properly sealed
• Open and stir up the mixture again throughout the first week, it should be moist and will likely feel warm or hot
• Add clean water as needed to keep it moist and cooking
• Keep the mixture in the sun for 30 to 60 days
• Mix again before you start growing
• Don’t grow with distilled water. The ideal water pH is between 6-7. Anything outside this can be problematic to your soil

I imagine I'd have to tweak this as I went but does anyone have any additional suggestions/ingredient replacements?

If you have done your home work and you think this is the best I say go for it.

We have this thread you might be interested in looking at. http://www.marijuanapassion.com/foru...ad.php?t=54251 There is lots of good reading there that helped me.

I make my own soil from left over fox farm ocean forest and add a few amendments and top dress with my worm castings and guano's.

Excellent! Thanks so much for the link! I'm going to try this formula but I've bookmarked the link and I'll be consulting it when I begin to tweak the formula. Thanks so much!
