    i used it for a long time. i agree on the slower drainage. what i did,

    1) put a layer of rocks or perlite in the bottom about 1/2″ or so deep.
    2) mix the soil with more perlite in general. 4 scoops sunshine, 1 scoop perlite.

    i’d have to water every 3rd day. but could stretch 4 if i had to.

    if you havent, mix a little dolomite lime with it too., i didnt have ph issues that often in it, but, it did happen now and then. the DL, with stop that.

    well, back when i had my first plant. i used soil that was NOT good whatsoever for my plant. no perlite, mass amounts of ferts, etc.

    i mixed a new pot of soil (the way i described) watered it with water and superthrive and made a big hole (and kept it warm.. and by warm i mean room temp)

    then i ended up removing it from its pot (like you would when transplanting) and then in a warm tub of water + superthrive, carefully rinsed and rinsed and rinsed some more until i was down to pretty much just the roots.

    then i gently started putting the roots into the soil, slowly covering them at the same time until the whole plant was in, and how it should be.

    i then watered the soil with more “warm” water and superthrive. and within 3 days, it was almost as dry as plain soil. and i just continued my watering every 3-4 days.

    it shocked it a little, not very much. But in the end. it flourished into a monster, with a massive root ball in a 5 gallon pot. (single plant scrog)

    Not saying thats the right way. just what i did, and it worked. so, if you feel the need to try it. giver.
