Why You Should Care Which Amendments You Have In Your Soil

I was fortunate enough to have youtube sensation on the Cheap Home Grow podcast this week. Medfit talks in detail about soil amendments and why as a home grower you should care about what amendments you put into your soil.

Medfit is self-educated and talks how he started growing in Las Vegas in 2014. Like many new or novice home growers, he tested multiple different growing mediums but eventually found his way with growing organically.

Medfit talks passionately about how super soil does nearly all of the work for him. Like many traditional home growers that have to PH, PPM, EC etc.. he lets his soil do that work for him.

He does into detail as to how this process works.

I especially like this approach because as many of you know I’m a relatively new grower. I, like most home growers, can’t devote an excessive amount of time every day to growing there own so Medfit’s almost “hands off” approach is something I think you can truly appreciate especially if you’re looking for a simple way of growing your own cannabis without sacrificing quality or yield.

This podcast is definitely worth a listen for anyone that’s interested in “spicing” up there own soil and getting a better quality tasting bud.

Show Highlights:

MedFit has been growing from 7 to 8 years in Las Vegas.

Have you always grown organically, or did you make the switch later on?

MedFit is self-educated and wanted to learn how to grow because of his roommate and his father’s passing. He started with synthetic nutrients, DWCand aquaponics. Starting off with super soil was the easiest method for Medfit. Medfit never has to PH, PPM, or EC.

Medfit says the super soil is doing most of the work.

Why care about the amendments that are in your soil?

Botted nutes have a shelf-life, the salts and synthetics are killing the biology. Medfit doesn’t want to put waste back into the environment.

Organics is feeding the soil and creating a healthy root zone that breaks down amendments for the plant to uptake, whereas bottled nutes are trying to feed the plant. How would you describe it?

It causes the plant to start feeding on your schedule. The biology is breaking down dry organic amendments. The biology is more bacteria and fungi.

What is something someone can add to their soil that will have the most significant impact? How does that work?

Your own compost! Compost can be produced from your house and leaf clipping.
