How to make Your own Organic Potting Soil

My friend Red-Icculus of Red-Icculus Blog has a sure fire organic potting soil recipe. Take a peak at RED-ICCULUS' POTTING SOIL RECIPE.

Hey thanks for the shoutout, Rob! This stuff performs way better than Miracle Gro potting soil, being organic, not needing to be watered as often, and being cheap.

A block of coco is $5, a bag of compost is $2, and a bag of perlite is $3. That is enough potting soil for one serious container garden!

The only thing this potting soil is lacking for heavy flowering plants over time is Calcium and Magnesium. This can easily be remedied with 1 teaspoon of blackstrap molasses and 1/4 tsp. epsom salts per gallon of water, or simply regular fertilizing with a liquid fertilizer.

Dolomite lime is a great addition for ca-mg issues and also acts as a ph buffer
