BuildASoil Mineral Kit - (For Peatmoss)
BuildASoil Mineral Kit For Peatmoss
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 Canadian Sphagnum peatmoss.
Peatmoss is acidic and this mineral mix will help balance PH. If you are Re-Amending or are working with Coconut Coir check out our other Mineral Mixes.
If you intend on using sphagnum peat moss then this kit is perfect for you. With the low PH of peat moss this kit comes with oyster flour to add lots of calcium and also help raise the ph to proper levels.
