BuildASoil Mineral Kit - (For Coco Coir)


BuildASoil Mineral Kit for Coco Coir

If you're looking to mix soil you will need a Nutrient Kit and a Mineral Kit.

If you're looking for Nutrients see our Nutrient Kit For Sphagnum Peat Moss Base - ClackamasCoots Style. We separate the two so that the natural moisture in the rock dust doesn't effect the raw nutrients.

This Mineral Kit is compatible with making a NEW batch of soil using Coconut Coir.

Coconut coir is PH neutral and has a special need for calcium and potassium. This mineral mix will help balance the Coco Coir to a no-Till Living soil.
