Pro Mix

Recommended Posts

Normally I use Ocean Forest for my pots.

In my area it is getting hard to find Ocean Forest, so I bought Pro Mix as a replacement.

I did mix a ratio of 3 parts Pro Mix to 1 part Happy Frog. Store had a couple bags of the Happy Frog.

Is their anything I need to do different for growing?

Yes, there is loads of food in ocean, there is none in pro mix. You will need to feed from the start.

After using the Pro Mix for a week, I notice the soil is not as fluffy as Ocean Forest. 

Next time I will add some vermiculite to the mix.

Think that is what it is called to get more air into the soil.

Suggestions on percentage of vermiculite to add?

There are two types of Pro Mix, HP and BX.

BX has more vermiculite so you don't have to water as often.
