    I think that comes down to Preference, I prefer Coco/Perlite... To me that is the Best! What-ever you choose just make sure it's a light mix(meaning that the soil or what-ever your using doesn't compact,that will slow growth,etc...)

    I don't think soil should have a pre-charge or nutes added in for several weeks at-least... Soil has nutes already(well enough for plant to survive for several weeks) In Coco you would pre-charge since coco contains nothing...about the watering part, I'm going by coco(since thats all I use) but after my pre-charge I do not need to give any water for at-least the first 10days... I'm sure soil would be even longer... I don't grow in soil but @pop22 may be able to give you an idea how long in-between would the plants be feed nutrients, I just won't make guesses to something I don't know about...

    With organics, you can feed the soil before you plant. Now many people "cook" the soil for at least thirty days. Guess it depends what you use. I stay away from guanos in my soil, seems they keep the soil hot a long time. I use blood meal for my added quick N. If you use pre-mixed organic nutrients like Doctor Earth, Jobe's etc, you can mix and plant right away. I rarely cook my soils anymore. It take 2-4 weeks for the microlife to really get the nutrients released which seems perfect to me, just in time for the flowering push. This is also why I keep my soils simple. I know how it will preform every time.

    In the end I bought bio biz light mix, I have to say I really like that soil, I think i will stick with it for a long time.
    It never gave me any kind of problem, I usually water my plats 1/2 times every week and they never gave me any deficiency.
    I would recommend it to any newbie out there, it's vey easy to manage the plant.
