I've really been working on substrates for a long time now. Between the shipping cost and strict US regulations on soil import, it's tough. Just to make shipping work out I have to be able to place an order in the $10k-$20k range....And that would be just to get pricing similar to ADA soils (which I think is pretty high). Basically, I have to order a sea freight container. Air freight runs around $7 per pound from Asia.
