Im planning to try using organic potting soil as my substrate for my Ts. Has anyone tried it? I checked for harmful stuffs on it but I couldn't find one. All I could find is that its 100% organic material. Does this mean its also safe for Ts?

I know some that use an organic potting soil & organic peat moss mix. They have the soil for moisture purposes.

I use an organic peat and a coco fiber mix.

I think John 3800 used to use potting soil, maybe he could answer your questions.

I called the manufactuer regarding an organic, sterilized, seedling potting mix (peat, vermiculite and perlite) and was assured that it was totally pesticide free...so I'm planning on using that...
