    I'm new to this whole organic soil and soil-less mixing. I have a general idea of what to mix as amendments go but as far as base soil goes and ratio per bag to mix it right is what has been confusing me, any advise would be greatly appreciated.

    Wow, tons of work went into all this. It'll take a while for mere mortals to sift through all of the voluminous info. Thanks for sharing.

    You are building a soil mix for a plant that can give you so much in return and in some cases that is priceless.

    absolutely... I was going more for amusement than complaining.
    I got mine down to NPK and some goodies, not all of them, it'll have to do

    What your soil lacks you can make up with Teas. Part of the great things about organic growing. The nutrients are all around we just got to find the easiest way to feed them to our plants.

    You're creating a living soil. It hosts microbes that feed the soil and in turn the plant. Diversity is the key. Feed the soil and not the plant
