Fox Farm Ocean Forest Potting Soil Mix Product Review

Fox Farm’s Ocean Forest Potting Soil Mix is a tried-and-true soil mix for much of the cannabis community. It’s one of the easiest soil mixes to use for all stages of plant growth, whether from seedling to harvest.

A massive benefit for Ocean Forest is the fact that it’s already set to the ideal pH range. 6.3 to 6.8 pH is the ideal range for plants growing in soil for nutrient uptake. This makes Ocean Forest incredibly efficient, and your cannabis plants will likely show it with vigorous growth.

Fox Farm’s went above and beyond by offering a two-pack, which enables cultivators with additional potting soil. However, the price comes to $30 per bag, which is still on the high-end for an organic potting mix.

Although you’ll spend a substantial amount of money for Fox Farm’s Ocean Forest, it will pay for itself, considering you won’t need a pH pen. If you’re looking for an easy-to-use potting soil mix – this is it.

So I went to the local hydro shop a couple weeks ago, and was looking at Foxfarms soils. I was trying to deciede what soil to buy. Ocean Forest, Orginal Planting Mix, Happy Frog, or Light Warrior.

First off, does anyone know if any of these soils are better then the others for Cannabis?

Second, the guy at the store told me Ocean Forest has to many nutrients in it, and could burn plants when they are seedlings. Anyone start there seeds off in ocean forest? Any nute burns?

Thanks alot guys

At our super helpful local Progressive Garden shop, the clerks are usually very happy to talk my ears off about soils, and mediums in general.
You might ask around there, I know I learned more talking with the associate than I had about soils on RIU in a week.
Foxfarm Ocean forest, with all the goodie nutes is a safe bet, and many members on RIU swear by it.

Hope it works out, take er’ easy.

From what I heard light warrior is goof for seed starting, and clones. And Ocean forest is good for plants past the seedling phase.

I know foxfarm is good stuff, im not asking about that. I just want to know if it is safe to start cannabis in Ocean forest, because the guy there said it has alot of nutrients in it, and can burn seedlings.

Thanks for the replies

ok FAILS. read the nutes on ocean forrest and it is next to nothing . It has natural stuff like worm castings and stuff from the ocean. I use it plus some perlite on ALL MY DIFFERENT STAGES. The reason I use this is because the NPK values are so low , thus I am in control of what nutes my babies get. This is a great soil and I hvae never had problems. One time I couldnt get fox farm ocean and so I used organic miracle grow. NOW THAT GAVE ME TROUBLES!

Just my experience I share and the guy who said it has too many nutes is an idiot just read the bag

Im in my second grow. my first plant got stolen when my house got robbed. However for my first plant used some of scotts soil from home depot, and my second plant is in some Happy Frog from a local Hydro Store and my second plant looks twice as good as my first one did. Although my light setup is a lil better. the differences in the color, size, and formation of the leaves is like light and day in the two. As i progress further in my journies of canabis growing i will experiment with other soils, im just trying to complete a succesful grow first.

I know that i cant tell you how the different Fox Farm soils differ from each other, i can tell u that the Happy Frog(the only F Farm soil i have used so far) is the shit.

right on haze, right on. And good luck progressing further in your journals of cannabis growing. And may many many successful grows be on your way.

Well this thread is over id say, I went to the hydro and picked up a big bag of ocean forest, with some worm castings. Going to get perlite a bit later, and some builders sand to make a nice mix.

I have a burn story. decided to clone directly into ocean forest after using dip and grow, and clonex (seperate batches)
THey all DIED, burnt up with yellow spots, all 20 of them. Took clones out of ocean forest and added cups of pearlite to it and flushed it, and the clones came back to life.

Yes ocean forest is powerful stuff, and not sutiable for sticking to clone, EXCEPT when it has been diluted with pearlite and some hyponex type soil, to make it less potent.

For seedlings had 50% germ rate success with ocean forest (dissapointing!) compared to pearlite/peat/hyponex mix, 90%.

Nute burn is a serious problem its better to undernute, and then add more later, its almost like too much salt ruins the pot analogy.

Ocean forest amended with hyponex and a sprinkle of pealite, is the bomb for when they are slightly more grown up.

Also some seeds are more sensitive than others, ex: blueberry, WW. are more sensitive to nutes, and high maintenance.

Fox Farms Ocean Forest and Light Warrior both have Perlite inside, and used together, they are the best medium I have found in existence. You can definitely start clones with a mixture of both, or start from seeds, but IF YOU START FROM SEEDS AND USE NUTRIENTS on TOP of that, then youll burn them.. Ive seen it!

You should definitely Use 70 percent Ocean forest and 30 percent Light Warrior. Light Warrior is a soilless medium whereas Ocean Forest is a potting soil.

What Someone said earlier was true, according to the woman I spoke to over the phone from Fox Farms: Ocean Forest needs more aeration, which Light Warrior provides, and Light Warrior needs more water retention, which Ocean Forest provides. Such a beautiful union.. This is why a mix is best, and for vegetative cannabis stage, like I said, 70/30 is ideal. She also told me that the Light warrior was designed partially as a soiless medium and also as a compliment to the Ocean Forest potting soil. Fox Farms is owned by an older couple that picked out the absolute best stuff possible on planet earth that your plants need.

You will not believe the results when using this mixture!! Within less than 2 weeks from transplant I noticed insane growth, and a lot more new growth as well!

So try it out, and yes you can start from germination with no problems as everything in there is organic and natural. OVERGROW THE PLANET.

So I went to the local hydro shop a couple weeks ago, and was looking at Foxfarms soils. I was trying to deciede what soil to buy. Ocean Forest, Orginal…
