I sent a friend, to the Hydro Store, to pick me up my normal Happy Frog Soil mix. He said they were out, but that the owner suggested Roots Organic soil mix. He brought me one bag to try. I was just wondering if anyone here has used this mix????

Thanks

i like it---never any thrip issues---supposed to have everything you ever need for a full cycle---won't hurt to amend it with your own soil recipe

I decided to be experaMENTAL once again this summer and try this Roots 707.. I usually use Promix, which has pretty much the same thing as Roots 707.. Any good reciepes for using roots?? or any tips or tricks that needs to be known to get the max quality yield using Roots 707... I talked with a grower that says he plant just str8 into 707bales and water he pulls 1 lb + out of one 3.8 cubit bale... no extra ferts used

Thanks in advanced

I used the 707 for my grow last year. Love it!!!!!!! No ferts needed. Did use micorize and then molasses twice during flowering. And increased my grow by a large percent. I grow outside and in a greenhouse. Had a few thrips at first but rest of grow was bug free. I'm growing in it again this year.

I did find that the roots organic was a little hot for seedlings. happy growing

Says is key word here :) A lb plant will suck down the nutrients. Esp if you want to keep it lush up till harvest.
