I have these soils and amendments but I am not sure how to mix them all. Any suggestions on percentages? I grow sativa dominate. Thanks in advance for the suggestions.

Foxfarms Ocean Forest already contains part of what you bought as admendments. You could mix in some of the vermiculite. But You never bought perlite, which helps stretch the Ocean Forest some.

These plants are in FFOF and 3 of them are 100% Sativa, Malawi x Panama. They were topped twice. I haven't done anything to the soil and only fed ferts twice now. Day 18 flowering.

i wouldnt do anything with the ocean forest,but the peat moss,1/2 bag each of the compost,1 cup of bone,whole bag ewc,1/2 that bag vermiculite,cup of blood meal,mix all that shit together let it sit a month in the weather,do a side by side of both soils,might just turn out to be a winner if you dig,lmao

Why do I leave it outside for a month?
if you can handle the smell then dont,come to think of it,do half cup of bone meal and blood meal and if you can find wood ash do a whole cup of it,most folk use lime,ash is better,leaches threw faster,lime just linger around and keeps soil at a neutral ph of 7,weed like 6.5,i like it because by the end of the grow i can ph soil again and see which way to go,lots of good stuff in compost that benifit and dont burn roots,the compost breaks down quicker than anything else,your bioligy be loving it,as far as air goes,you could use wood chips about 1/2 to inch long and use that instead of vermiculite,i dont use perlite all that shit does is take soil away from your over all soil,soil packs around it and just sit there,wood chip is a sponge,gives you the air the pot needs,absorbs the nutrients you provide and decompose to humus in later grows,if you dont believe this look in that bag of ocean,aint much perlite a lot of wood chips,then do soil sample test of ph right on 6.5,you have the vermiculite use it ,but me wood chips

Feller, Ocean Forest doesn't have wood chips, but plenty of perlite. Always has been that way. Making your own soil is commendable. I just plant and forget.

Foxfarms Ocean forest ingredients:
Composted Forest Humus, sphagum peat moss, Pacific northwest sea-going fish emulsion, crab meal, shrimp meal, earthworm castings, sandy loam, perlite, bat guano, granite dust, Norwegian kelp, and oyster shell for ph adjustment.
