Here is what I just loaded up in a bucket for my next grow.
4 gl ProMix Organic, 1/2 gl perlite, 1/4 cup gypsum, 1/4 cup Azomite, 2tbsp epsom, 1/2 tsp Borax
6 tbsp Peace-of-Mind Tomato organic 7-4-5 (they were out of all purpose 5-5-5)
I watered it with a gallon of Stump Tea and Molasses. I will let it set until the next vegged lady is ready for action.
I hope to only add the Stump Tea, Molasses, and SnowSormUltra.
Should this be enough to get by with? Budget is low and I don't want to have to buy much more.
Canadian Sphagnum Peat Moss
(65-75% by volume)
Sea-based Compost (from composted shrimp shells & seaweed)
Limestone (for pH adjustment)
Mycorise® - endomycorrhizae inoculant

Stump Tea is a special blend of soil biology and beneficial Mycorrhizae that occurs naturally in the some of the world's most pristine forests.

Humic and fulvic acids aid in the uptake of micro and macro nutrients. Molasses feeds the biology so it can thrive. Kelp is an excellent source of natural micro and macro nutrients that are very easy for plants to take in.

I think you'll probably want to add a bit of that fertilizer to your tea every now and then....but yeah, that mix could work.
You might consider spending 10 bucks on a bag of soft rock phosphate and adding that to the soil too. You'd have a nicely mineralized soil then. Nothing would be wrong with adding OC+ either.
