You can get this at kmart at Penn station or home depot in manhattan in the UES.
They sell small bags for manhattanites.

Also heaps of garden stores in LES... Unless you were looking to get it for free, in which case, good luck.

No i was gonna pay. I figured someone had some left over processed soil. I dont really have the time to wash and dry it several times. But thanks. I'll probably just get organic potting soil.

It's hard to find topsoil this time of the year and in small quantities. The stuff at Kmart and homedepot is usually potting soil or something of that nature. Might be better off going into the backyard or to a park. I ordered mine premade from a member on this site. Came with the topsoil, powdered dolomite and clay. Good luck.

Why did you dump the aqua soil? I would even pay, you dumped everything from your 12Gal, I can reuse them.

I have some MTS and supplies lying around. I also got a very nice RAOK of gro-tabs from hydrophyte that should arrive soon that I'd be fine sharing. No extra black substrate lying around tho, I actually need another bag. I'm in Manhattan.

And Sunyang, I can't believe you dumped AS!!!! Shame! haha
