Hey there Drewpy, the soil you're using is going to be fine, what you want to do is transplant to their forever home as soon as possible, hopefully a pot around 10 gal+ if you want monster yields. Take a look at fabric pots they do help getting oxygen to the roots and keeping the root area cool. in miracle grow you've got 2 to 3 solid months of ferts in there so it should last you until flower when you want to switch to flower nutes. Cannabis eats up Calcium and Magnesium so you'll want to add some as well maybe starting in a weeks' time. Don't worry it's bio. Beyond that what's absolutely critical when growing in soil is that you want the wet / dry cycle so make sure you follow that once you translant. Look right now they are in their seedling homes, when you transplant you want the least stress possible, that means making sure you don't touch the seedlings or the roots. Cut out the thing they're in a carefully lay in the soil before you remove it nicely. Should avoid stressen your girls during transplant. Great strain, great breeder, yours are gonna blow up - enjoy ! dassit :rocket:

High there! Miracle Gro soil is "okay" if it's all you have access to, but as others have said the slow-release nutrients can be a problem, especially if you plan on adding additional bottled nutrients. She looks healthy right now. Try & keep the temperatures between 75-80*F during veg & 65-80*F once she enters flower. If you transplant into a bigger container at some point, you might consider changing to a better soil such as Black Gold or Fox Farms at that time. Good luck!

Hey there so typically most people won't use miracle grow soil in an indoor situation because it has time released nutrients. So you might be in flowering and the soil suddenly releases a bunch of nitrogen which can burn your plants. I personally use fox farm soil as its already ph'ed in the right range and it has only a limited amount of nutrients.

That way I can add nutrients has they are needed not have them show up unexpectedly and cause problems. I do know some people will use miracle grow but the few people I've seen do that it was in an outdoor grow not indoor. I have even used just regular garden potting soil from your local hardware store no fancy brand but the key was that it only had the available nutrients from the start. Do you know if your miracle soil says that it feeds up to 3 months etc? If so you'll want to try to avoid those particular soils. Congratulations on your new gardening. Its so exciting. I have been listening to a good Podcast lately if you want some good information search for kis organics cannabis cultivation and science Podcast, It has some very good episodes.
