With super soil your main job as the grower is to simply water your plants and watch them grow. There’s usually no need for complicated nutrients, chemicals, managing pH and other factors that can make growing cannabis more difficult or time-consuming throughout the grow. This leaves you with more time to spend with your garden getting to know your plants and learning what you can do to help them even further!
With super soil, you’re re-creating the environment that causes cannabis to grow vigorously and vibrantly in the wild. You’re creating a “living soil” that acts a lot like the best types of fertile soil in nature.
Benefits Super Soil
Better Product – Many growers believe that growing cannabis in super soil enhances taste and smell compared to other growing methods, while producing smooth buds with less of a chance of “harshness” from over-fertilization
Great for Indoors and Outdoors – Super soil is a versatile growing medium that can be used to grow thriving cannabis plants almost anywhere
Natural – Super soil can be created using only organic ingredients that have been broken down naturally – this closely mimics the best and richest soil found in nature
No Need to Flush – Since there’s no chemical salts to alter taste and smell of buds, many organic growers feel there’s no need to flush before harvest
Can Be Easier to Grow – Once the amended soil is composted, growing cannabis in super soil is easier than pretty much any other type of growing medium; with super soil there’s less of a need to worry about maintaining pH or nutrients! As long as you’re starting with a good water source, you just water your plants and wait until harvest.

It is best to compost this blend after mixing for up to one month to insure that there is no burning that can result in crop failure.
(If plants show signs of nutrient deficiency at any time it’s always good to have a all purpose organic 5-5-5 nutrient laying around that can be applied on top of the soil and watered in.)
