Default Re: what are you using for potting soil?

I make my own using a store bought organic compost, perlite, a small amount of chicken manure, and worm castings. I do this because it's cheaper, organic, and I control how well it drains or holds water. If you need you soil to hold water longer use more vermiculite and less Perlite. This combo has gotten all my freshly dug and potted pups through the rooting process and kept them organic along the way!
