Having a good potting mix to grow your cannabis plants in is crucial for a bountiful harvest of buds. Let’s take a look at the components of Happy Frog potting mix and see how closely we can recreate it by taking our own topsoil and compost and combining it with perlite, peat moss, earthworm castings and other natural organic matter. Our end result will be a well draining, nutrient rich soil for our cannabis crop to thrive in.
