This is my first grow with soil. I have my plant in a 20 gallon pot with 40% Ocean Forest and 60% Strawberry Fields then added an additional 2 gallons of perlite to this mix. The plant appears to be doing okay and I am into the third week of flower. Will this mix take me through to harvest or do I need to add anything like top dressing, or feed the soil or anything? If I do what is the easiest

Big pots small plants and they look fine for nutrients right now… if the plants were bigger and pots smaller then you would probably need but to me it looks like your going to make the entire run on whats there now.

Imo stay the course

Flower formation looks great for being week 3!

What prompted you to do 20 gallons on an indoor grow?
My first grow with coco coir and flora treo was a huge sucess but took a lot of work (21 ounces with 3 plants with 1 plant accounting for 70% of harvest). Was looking to water only through entire cycle.

I’m going to go against the crowd and suggest a bloom boost. Roots organic Boost terp tea can be used as a top dress amendment. But I’m sure they’ll go the distance with what you got going now.

For a 20g pot and the size of your plant. Those fibrous roots will still be expanding into new areas of the plant gobbling up all the nutrients they need. Just to be safe you could top dress with some worm casting and not worry about nutrient excess or deficiency. Other then that looks great and good luck.

Worm castings added (about 5 heaping handfuls). I can add more and probable will.
