    I use Fox Farm but I use the Happy Frog. Many people use the Ocean Forest but I fond it a little too hot.

    I also use Fox Farm nutes.

    That depends on if you will feed organic or synthetic nutrients. If you want to grow organically then you can get several organic soils from the local stores such as Home Depot/Lowes or other "gardening" stores. These will work as a base medium, but you will need to add amendments to it to better serve the plants. Or buy an organic nutrient solution that you can add to you watering regimen. If you are going to feed synthetic nutes then you can go with any medium that has good aeration(drains well so roots don't stay soaking in moisture). I personally shy away from anything with nutrients already added as these have a set nutrient level that is general purpose, and can be challenging to balance with the needs of Cannabis (which is very need specific). You can actually use a commercial organic medium and then feed with synthetic nutes. The organic medium may be better than the prenuted mediums as it should have better aeration properties (drains well). Hope this helps :)

    Happy Frog for me also.I can usually get through my veg cycle with just Ph'd water in 3 gal pots.I even clone straight in Happy Frog also instead of my seed starting mix.I find it feeds them as they root and allows me a little more time to transplant without them stretching or yellowing on me.It may take you a couple different trys to find one that works for you.GL
