Best Practices

Prep For Use:

Wet product with warm water a few hours prior to planting or soil blocking. This allows the soil to stabilize and prevents soil from washing out of pots or trays.


Avoid drastic changes in moisture/saturation. Store under cover, out of direct sunlight. Protect from weed seed, petroleum products, and other contaminants.

Supplemental Fertility:

Usually, no additional fertility is required. If roots have filled the container and fertility is needed, top-dress with Compost Plus and water in.

Storage and Shelf Life:

Store in a neutral environment which encourages moisture retention and protects from UV light. For optimal performance of living soil we suggest using it within 8-12 months from date of purchase.
