Great Link! Very interesting.
So if someone has the money to purchase an expensive substrate this means they are too lazy to learn what it is that makes a substrate good for plants?It seem that this thread, that I think really important, do not bring the interest I was expected.
First Soilmaster, Turface and other DIY stuff are really important for this hobby because they are inexpensive alternative to the stuff reserve to a certain elite that do not really want to take the time to understand what is involved in a good substrat, and buy the ready to use expensive stuff.
Definitely, many of us who couldn't find the info before can pass it to those who will research later, as long as the threads stay up front. I would have bags of AS if it wasn't so acidic, but I'm also a person who likes to save money without cutting corners, and you need good researchable info to do that. There are plenty of things that haven't been done yet in this hobby, and that evolution and introduction of new ideas is part of what makes it so fun for a lot of us.Still a good thread Glouglou and of value to the community.
