Hello everyone, this is my first time grow.  Im transplanting afew photos into bigger pots because I think they are root bound, like a newbie I had them in small pots so I need to transplant them into bigger pots before flower. 

Atm I can't get to a local hydro store or buy any soil with nutes in ect, but I have at home some bags of (peat free compost) and I have a load of dry amendments for compost teas ect. 


So I was wondering if this would be suitable for transplanting if I add my own perlite and nutes. I'm transplanting 5 plants so would anyone roughly know how much ammendmets I would use in the soil. Thanks guys

I would suggest not adding any nutes, just amendments for nute take-up or promoting fungi and organisms. If you don't know how much of what is in the compost it could start imbalance problems later when you start feeding.

That's my approach anyway, I use Canna Seed in the final pot with mycorrhizal granules and Ecothrive Charge and rely on Buddha's Tree nutes  thereafter.
