BuildASoil's Original Recipe with Biodynamic Malibu Compost! This water only mix was based on the famous Clackamas Coots recipe and it changed everything. After years of growing in this potting soil and hand making it for others, I founded BuildASoil.com to share the soil and its ingredients. Years afterward, we began to learn about soil testing and started to step out and make our own recipes. This original recipe of living organic soil with Malibu Compost is one of the worlds most famous potting soils and it has started numerous well-intentioned soil companies. We will continue to make it and the soil building kits based on it forever.
NOTICE OF POTENTIAL TO HEAT: Due to the nature of mixing multiple composts and ingredients together it is possible that this potting soil will heat up once combined into larger volumes and watered in. Please be sure to double check soil temperatures before planting into. (Especially likely when combining over 10 Cubic Foot Soil bags into a new container)
YOUR SOIL IS ALIVE!! LIVING SOIL DISCLAIMER: We DO NOT sterilize any of our compost or Potting soils during the manufacturing process and as a result it will contain a plethora of life. This could be beneficial mites, fungus and microbes as well as, from time to time, unwanted fungus gnats. While we do our best to keep anything unwanted to a minimum we cannot guarantee it. We always recommend purchasing beneficial insects to combat this possibility and/or learning best practices to avoid population explosion.
Commercial Customers: NOTICE OF HEAVY METALS - All organic potting soils will contain trace amounts of heavy metals. LOS Malibu has lots of Compost and amendments and commercial facilities should be sure to have Heavy Metal Compliance Program for your state to make sure you are in the clear. Each state varies. Home Growers need not concern as the commercial restrictions are significantly lower than even normal outdoor garden soil.
