If you want simple, don't do coco.

So organic soil is easier? How come?
It's less work, once you've mixed your soil.

For me, the big benefit is I can go on biz trips for up to 2 weeks without finding someone to care for my plants.

Do you add anything to your soil or just go with the soil itself?

I would agree soil is easier than coco. A good soil might not need any nutrients until well into flowering. Mix soil with 20-30% perlite to help with drainage and water retention. Dolomite lime can help if ph stability is an issue.

Yes. My mix is pro-mix + worm castings or some kind of compost (when worm castings are not available) + organic dry fert (like happy frog) + dolomite.

This is pretty similar to the mix most people use, but there are infinite tweaks.

I add some microbes (trichoderma, etc.), beneficial nematodes, and I'm good. Every other watering, molasses dissolved in the water to feed the microbes. Cal/Mag, as needed, and later in flower, the plants might need some nutrient supplementation.
