Subcool's Super Soil
Posted 22 March 2009 - 09:01 AM
I'm guessing that's just a brand name of soil available wherever Subcool lives. Most of the stuff (brands) he uses isn't available here (or not where I live).
Sorry for the dumb question, but what is "Roots soil or equivalent high quality supped up grow soil"?
Glad you bumped this along though. I'd forgotten this thread existed.

8 Bags Roots soil or equivalent high quality supped up grow soil
25 pounds Pure Worm Castings
½ cup Azomite trace minerals
2/3 Cup Sweet Lime IE Dolomite
1 Kilo Bone meal / IE 5 Pounds
1 Kilo Blood meal ( I use a bit more bone than Blood in this recipe)
1 Kilo Bat Guano bloom formula preferably Fruit bats
3/4 cup Epson Salts
The Perlite and Coco I happen to have and it will make a better mix but it is not necessary.
Ok gentlemen, I may have worked out a way to make this great mix in aus.. i do apologise if someone had already stated this..
Bone Meal - phosphorus source
Blood Meal - nitrogen source
Epsom salts - magnesium source
lime -calcium source & pH buffering
Bat Guano bloom formula - nitrogen & trace elements
I havent worked out what worm castings do and at the moment can't find a replacement for the base..
any help or sugestions would be great...
Subcool - thank you for sharing your recipe.

I used Niks Mix as a base. Has the same Coco base as roots with similar additives. Buy it or find closest distributor from Niks Mix
Worm Castings: Cheapest source I could find Scrap Ltd.
Apparently highest quality fairly expensive though Wormtec
Blood and Bone meal is available from Bunnings and most gardening centres. Try get a pure blood and bone meal not one with added potash etc
Dolomite Lime is the same as above
Fulvic and Humic acid powder at NTS
The only source I could find for powdered Guano is also NTS
I added Kelp Meal, as its in Roots but not Niks mix. It's available from a couple sources, but varies in price greatly Wormtec is expensive but sells smaller amounts
NTS about $70 for 25kg
Urban Gardener Shop is more expensive, but has a range of other products, like worm castings diatomaceous earth hydro equipment etc
Azomite can be found at Living Apartment but from what I gather you can use a volcanic rock dust product such as at Urban gardener shop volcanic rock dust
Any questions just ask
