it's not a price issue..
you asked and we told. if you choose not to take our advice that's fine, but don't come to us for answers and then shit on the advice we give..
we're being honest.. this is your first grow amd typically there are issues when people just plant seeds and expect them to grow into super dank monster buds with little to no effort. it doesn't work that way..
I'm sorry the first part of the post is a bit edgy but look at it from our point of view and how many times we type the same thing to different people everyday...
the tl:dr version goes like this:
If you don't feed your plants they will die
you have no chance inside of that soil making nutrients to feed those plants. with OR without the compost you put in it.
we feed indoor grows because we have to mate.. not cuz we want to and lack of such is causing your plants many ills...
