ProMIX VS Sunshine Mix #4

hello, so i did some search on here and have not found any comparison on promix vs. sunshine mix#4.
i have used both in the past before, and using SSM4 now (got a freebie bag from gro-store) and im liking how the SSM4 is growing.
its taking off a lot better than my coco right now.

Now my research is on which medium should i use. promix or sunshine#4. due to both are about the same price. it is a lot cheaper than coco and hydroton. and i dont have to water everyday.

i will be using GH flora series. can add additional if necessarily.
i am planning on going back to soil due to the hot summer weather, and its a lot cheaper setup than hydro. also planning on using 3 gal or 5 gal buckets. (maybe one month veg total)

any inputs are appreciated.

I do actually like the sunshine #4 better but there pretty much the same and since the sunshine is 10 bucks more per bale where I am located I always go with the promix because I really don't think there is much difference between the two I like how the sunshine bales are dark black though there much easier to stash in the bush then the bright white promix bags

Why exactly is soil better for you than hydro in the hot summer weather? Your reservoir gets too hot?

Exactly, think of all those people out there with un-chillable hydro systems, good for growing pythium though

Just noticed while opening a bale of promix bx today...........its panda poly packaging.......white outside, black inside.......

you think they could make a version for outdoor growers with the black facing out.
Or maybe they do, and I just don't know about it.

I used pro-mix for years until they started adding mycorise to it, now I'm using a product called bm1, it's cheaper than pro-mix and is the same thing really, it does not have the mycorise in it, which really seemed to only invite bugs. I always add about 30% perlite to the mix, no matter what it was.

Whats this mycorise HYF? I have used sunshine #4 for quite awhile until I couldnt find any and ever since i've used pro-mix I get some kind of bug infestation also.

It's beneficial bacteria that they add to the mix. Last summer I found some pro mix MVP. Black bale, only ingredients were peat moss, perlite, and vermiculite. Maybe some lime but I can't remember.
That's why I'm using the BM1, same 3 ingredients, nothing else added!
