Morning , 

so as you can imagine from the title I’m interested in growing in soil , but don’t have a clue where to start . And I think it would be a benefit to me because I work away form home 3-4 days/nights a week .  Where do I start ? Coco is all I know . Was thinking of dabbling in living soil but I’m getting very confused with it all .. do I buy soil in a bag or build my own?

@mrgreenthumb2020 for your fist soil grow i would buy some sohum or  something like it, if your not comfortable mixing you own yet.

Ive found working away from home that larger pot sizes have helped decrease the need for me to water as often  and allowed me to set up a water pump on a timer ( mine ran for 1-2 mins every other day ) to see them through until im home.

Best of luck its definitely doable

@mrgreenthumb2020 I can’t recommend ecothrive living soil enough mate and there products. But I’d buy in premade stuff to keep it simple at the beginning. For your first run all you’ll need is de chlorinated water and some of their compost tea.But ecothrive web site or indoor organics will be your best bet. There are 2 brothers aswell going under the name whole plant collective, who if you tell em what your wanting from your soil they’ll make it up for you. You thinking a no till bed or  in pots?

You’ll also be able to get pots,bed and blu mats from ecothrive too. No offence to soham users I haven’t used it but keep it British bro ecothrive 💯👍

My soil is made up of this its not exact but hey ho...5,7 or 10gal pots depending on veg time 

150litres

1/3 coco coir

1/3 worm castings compost 

1/3 home compost

Add horticultural sand to liking usually only a small bit

Few cups of oyster shells

Cup of lime

Cup of bone meal 

Cupn of fish blood n bone

Cup of potash 

Few cups of coffee grounds

Cup of superphosphate 

My home compost is alive and tty to keep it as balances as I can between green and brown. I have access to fresh duck, horse and cow shit I add this.

Two other things I like to do is in the woods across the road I do go in where no one goes take away the surface and use that soil humus this is amazingly alive and untouched. Lastly I bring seaweed from the beach and add that to the compost for outside I use it as a mulch.

I go by feel mostly dude and I'm trying to improve that ha ha

Be the change you wish to see when opportunities come knocking, you be ready to dance for it could be a long night for prohibition to awake from a centuries sleep.

@mrgreenthumb2020 going to look up green hand now thanks. My first grow I did because I like putting the seeds in the pot it’s gonna finish in from the start, and they where really happy. But that’s not working to well lately. I’ve just picked up some jiffy pellets and taking everyone’s advice and starting them off in something a little less hot so 🤞

And if you’re going to be away from it and no one can water em,some kind of watering system is needed ideally. Depending how long you’ll be leaving them for.👊
