i just discovered mites in my potting soil and i think that may be why so many of my slings died recently. i dont know for sure, but could you guys please tell me how to prepare potting soil so that there are no mites? i remember people talking about microwaving but i'm not exactly sure how to go about doing that for such a large amount of soil. could someone walk me through it step by step? thanks!
