I was just curious if I’m the only person using the roots organic lush soil? I’ve seen other people using the roots organic soils but not specifically the “lush” one. I’ve looked all over the internet and haven’t found a single grow journal or grow video of any type with someone using this soil. I’m thinking maybe it’s a new one for the roots organic brand. So I just figured that anyone who likes roots organic so far with this grow the roots organic alphas been amazing! I put my plant in right once it sprouted in the rock wool. It was about 3 inches tall, and I just put it directly into a 5 1/2 gallon airpot and just watered it with nothing but ph’d water between 6.2 and 6.8 (no extra nutrients at all) I did add a insanely small ammount of cal mag in two watering a but that’s it. And I continued using just water alone and the plan grew super fast and super healthy with absolutely zero ph burn, or and type of lockout or any issue at all as far as I could see all the way up to switching to the flowering cycle. Then once I got into flower I started slowly adding the fox farm trio starting at 1/4 strength and two and a half weeks after starting with the nutes I’ve got up to 3/4 strength and I’m concidering just staying there because everything seems to be going good. I know I’m rambling on but I just figured I’d put this out there for what it’s worth. I decided to use this soil because I asked the guy at the grow store if he would recommend a soil I could just put a seed in and water without having to add nutes or anything ( basically a “lazy mans” grow haha) and this seems to be exactly what I was hoping for.

And also sorry I forgot to mention I did mix in about 20% worm castings into the soil as well

I'm about to do my second grow using LUSH. It may be my go-to soil now. I've also used every other Roots soil and start seeds in Roots Greenfields.
Typically after veg I would transplant into 7 gallon pots full of Fox Farm Happy Frog but for the last grow I saw LUSH on the Roots website and sought it out to try.

I was impressed enough to order it again. It's spendy and hard to find but I'm feeling it's worth it. Cost is almost double Happy Frog which I can buy a block from my home but to get LUSH I have it shipped in. HF is good but not perfect and does need xtra nutes unlike LUSH.
I don't pH my water, just use 0ppm RO water and my only nutes are their Uprising Bloom and Foundation added by a half handful each added as a layer in the bottom half of my 7 gallon pots for bloom. I also use Great White.
LUSH is impressive. Pretty much a super soil out of the bag so no need to mix much else in or cook it. Cool to see another grower try it out because yeah there's not much in the way of journals or reviews. Costing $40/1.5cuft likely gets people to look at other options but for being a *Just add water* type of mix and the no drama, no burn, no pH lockout way it grows good pot might be worth it for many out there

This was my recent grow using it

Just looking through their website (I'm starting to plan first grow), it looks like the Lush mix doesn't use perlite, but other mineral bases. Also loaded up with a the other stuff that's in their other mixes, but that mineral base seems to be the main difference. Seems like the way to go for me.
