Man, you have all that neat stuff.... do some experimenting. Some people grow in straight Happy Frog Potting Soil or in the Ocean Forest. My next grow is going to be in a mix of the Happy Frog potting soil, some sand, some perlite and some vermiculite.

Everyone seems to have their own personal preference to soil mixes. And, it depends on your grow habits. Some of those products have nutrition, some do not. Some people fert with a heavy hand some some are the opposite. You have a nice chance to experiment with some different medium. Take advantage of it.

And, I believe the bone meal and bat **** are more additives than than the others so they will be included in much smaller quantities than the other products.

I think that's what KB means.

sand that's interesting. plenty of that around here. but, what does sand bring to the mix? also what part of the mix should be coco? and what is the coco for is it nutes or drainage or maybe retention? greenhorns, I get it, so many questions. here is another. what kind of sand ? blow sand, washed sand, large granular sand, silly sand? bet you didn't think of that.

Just wondering why you bought so much stuff? I have grown in FFOF, and FF happy frog. I don't care for the roots line... jmo FFOF has enough stuff on it's own to feed for 6 weeks. No need to add anything. HP has nutes for 3 weeks...
