Is this a good blend to use?

Hi all.

 

Forgive me if I sound dumb, I have never done a full major run in soil I have just done one experiment at minute alongside some coco plants to see the difference, and that was simply lightmix then into allmix, which is working fine and given me the kick I needed to go further with it. So I will be potting up soon with my 5 choc mint OG and I have been scratching my head listening to others about what to put in my mix. So will the following work ok, I know deep down it will but I dont want to pot up and burn the plants because the mix is too strong for them:

Im guessing the Biobizz will make it non organic, although it says so on the bags...

 

1/3 of Plagron batmix

1/3 of Coco cior for airation

1/3 of 50/50 Light/Allmix (just what I have left)

Mix in recommended dose of Ecothrive charge (Organic beetle shit)

Leave for a day or two

Pot up plants with a good watering

Feed with Ecothrive Biosys every 7-10 days (for those micros), then use Oltimer organic bloom if needed in flower as and when. 

 

Maybe a wet/dry cycle, but Im having joy with the current soil plant being watered daily. Its far bigger than the coco plants. 

 

I don't really have the capacity to buy new stuff at minute, a friend recommended BAC nutrients to mix in but Im maxed out cash wise so this is what I have been aquiring over time. But if the ratios could be changed I'm open to suggestions as the seedlings are only 5 days old and need some more time before going into a proper mix. 

 

Thanks

MMT

No, I'm afraid not.  Just use either the Batmix or the Light Mix, on its own, and stick to it.  Personally I would pick the batmix as you then don't need to feed till they go into bloom, and people who have used it rave about it.  Don't add coco "for aeration", it's not needed and just dilutes the compost.  And you don't need the Ecothrive stuff at all, it's basically snake oil that does almost nothing.

 

If you have the Oldtimer Organic Bloom then use it, it's good stuff, but tomato fertiliser such as Tomorite will do just as well and is much cheaper.

I have used all sorts of composts including the above and I have yet to find one that will very long at all before showing signs of hunger.

 

I have also switched to biobizz from Oldtimer bloom and the results are very good, OT1 no longer has anything to do with the people making products with his name on them.

 

e2a, I use Erin compost and fishmix/biobizz bloom with great results, that`s all I use atm apart from some maxicrop in the early stages

I don't use specialist composts at all any more, I use whatever ordinary multipurpose my local Homebase has, and I never need to feed till they go into flower, unless I am vegging them really long for some reason.  I have a bottle of Fishmix for when things go wrong, but I hardly ever need to use it, and for the last three grows have used tomato fertiliser instead of Bloom.  Works well.
