Are you suffering from pests? Instead of jumping to the offense, start with an effective integrated pest management system.
I keep sharing information from my personal perspective, but I do know that it's always helpful to hear a message from other sources and get their style too. This individual has donated a massive wealth of information to the online gardening community and has an extensive background that includes running a large nursery.... and you know they deal with pests in those huge greenhouses. So take it for what it's worth, this guy really knows his stuff. CC if you happen to stumble upon this post, I hope you could leave a comment and say hi! Thanks again to CC.

If you have been reading about cultivating indoors with organic soil then you've heard of SubCool's Super Soil. I admit to starting with this mix and thought I was really doing something special when I first went for it. I bought all the stuff and was really excited to use it.
My results were actually pretty good, but I've since moved on I think you should too.
Besides the "base soil" being purchased instead of made from scratch, I have many other issues. All in all this taking bagged soil and adding worm castings and nutrients isn't a bad idea, but it can be improved upon and money can be saved.

Now I'll go through each item: Read more.....
