Amenso why you quote me and not say anything? there's nothing factual about what you said, especially if you haven't tried anything different.
In nearly 20 years of growing, I've used damn near every medium there is and soil has historically, and repeatedly, proven to be subpar to promix, coco, and hydro (of different methods). The easiest by far has proven to be rockwool, only seconded by recirculating dutch buckets. Let me explain why my opinion is what it is.
You are lucky to see veg rates even half as fast as in a soilless medium. FACT.
You're more likely to have bugs and general filth around your grow area. FACT.
You can't rapidly resolve fuck ups because it retains water like a chick on her period. FACT.
You're more likely to overwater and completely fuck up because nothing changes quickly in soil. FACT.
You have new growers with maybe a couple harvests under their belts and that buddy that "grows organic trees outdoors" that think they know their shit, when IN FACT they don't.
Now, in soilless/hydro:
You have full control over whatever is going on in the media. FACT.
You can quickly address lockouts, deficiencies, and other common issues with visible results within days, not weeks. FACT
You have almost zero chance of overwatering. FACT.
You stand a better than not chance of having pests introduced to your environment by a subpar, money hungry organization hustling basically different kinds of animal shit with some compost, peat and bark mixed in. FACT.
You get exponential growth rates cutting down seed-to-harvest. FACT.
You end up with a cleaner burning, higher quality product. FACT.
Now if you can change my mind on any of the above with valid proof aside from shouting an opinion with no backing other than cognitive dissonance and an insistance on being a childish troll, I'm all ears. Otherwise, keep your mouth shut and don't @ me. I'm working on not being a dick and rather drop you on ignore than deal with a keyboard warrior that hasn't added any value to this forum at this point.
Absolutely true, beers on me :)
