Does the bag last forever lol?My only bitch with OF is it doesn't contain enough perlite.I have never had "heat" problems with seedlings or brand new clones like others have reported.Perlite can be added easily enough but I like 1/2 OF and 1/2 roots organic which contains much more perlite,it's a killer mix IMO

ive been using OF for yrs now.
never ever had seedling probs from the mix being too hot.
and ive had seedlings break the soil and
hours late be in a cup of OF.

I usually add perlite @3:1 or 4:1 mix
which is actually good imo,
perlite is cheap and if I'm doing a 3 or 4:1 ratio I'm going further on a bag by 25-30%.
i also add a couple tbs of lime per gallon.
I start getting nute lockout 3wks into bloom at times

I bought a bag of FFs strawberry fields
I'll be mixing today and check it out
I'll bet it has added P and K for bloom


Does the bag last forever lol?
damn near floridian!
I'm in the sunshine state too.
I thought of making xtra $$ in tourist season cutting out the
pic on the bag and putting a cheap frame on it like those mexi border town black velvet pics
and doing a commission with one of them guys
selling oranges and boiled Pnuts on the side of the road

I'm a newb so take what I write with some skepticism...

I agree with the above. What I have is a supposed 'clone' of FFOF called Victory Sea Blend. IMO, there's not nearly enough 'fluff' in this mix. I mix 50 percent VSB with 25 percent perlite plus 12.5 percent vermiculite and 12.5 percent rice hulls. I also add just a little gypsum and fossil flour. This works far better for me than VSB with no amendments.

Good results

I just finished my first flowering with Strawberry Fields. I am very pleased with the results. They were fed botanicare twice and at @5 wks to go I gave them a 1/4 teaspoon Riits Foundation and a 1/4 ESPN Riits Bloom. That's Roots. Damn spell correction. I will post some pics tomorrow when they get the chop. They are in their 24hr dark period now.

Ocean forest is a much hotter soil mix than strawberry fields. It has a lot more amendments in it so you don't need to fertilize at all for 3-4 weeks. Strawberry fields is a much simpler mix and its base is coco/peat/perlite.

You guys are so lucky to have pre mix of thay quality. If we want anything remotely close we must build the soils ourselves.
