    Well one Gallon is 4q but that's in liquid so if I go by that scale I'll be 8q short. I just wasn't sure I thought I'd ask people Who actually use dirt

    It's whatever tho at this point. I'll just buy the 1.5 ft³ bag. I can use the rest when I clips some clones off I have 2 confirmed females so far 15053593857432041322918.jpg

    I must admit growing in dirt is really easy I really enjoy it hydro is a pain the ass even though I can produce a lot more in Hydro and a lot faster.

    I apologize if that was a stupid question... I'm just not used to growing in dirt. hydro is my thing and always has been. The last time I grew in dirt was about 14 years ago when I 1st started to grow. But what switch me on to hydro is I had a bad bug infestation with dirt and never wanted to used it after that. But I've learned tons since then. And now I'm applying it to dirt. I'm far from a novice at growing I'm to the point now I can look at a fan leaf and tell you exactly what's going on with the plant I just had a few questions that's all.

    I've heard about the whole coco crave. But blumat never. so it's a drip system basically. This is why I fuck with you guys. You stay putting me on new things and teaching me I really appreciate it. I knew nothing about a system like this. I'm looking it up on YouTube now learning a whole bunch. Soon as I get some extra money I'm donating to rollitup. Without all the experience growers on these forms I wouldn't know half of the shit I know now. Thank you everyone. Fo real!

    And coco's a renewable resource where peat is derived from hundred year old bogs that will take longer than our lifetime to replenish if ever. Coco used to be a waste product. Now it's finding a good use as a growing medium.
