Soil Compaction Question


New Member
Hi All -

I'm going to be using a mix of FFOF and Happy Frog in 3 Gal Smart Pots for my first grow. Just waiting on the seeds now, got my LEDs today, WOOT!

Anyway, when filling the pots, how much if any should I compact the soil mix? I don't want it to be too loose and have the volume shrink to half the container size when watering.

I do a 50/50 mix of FFO and Frog. I also add 6 cups of perlite in a 5 gallon bucket. What I have done is fill pot with mix then add some water and let it pack itself. The add more soil if needed before transplant
