Things You’ll Need:

    * Potting Soil
    * Roasting pan
    * Aluminum foil
    * Meat thermometer
    * Oven

Step1
Turn your oven on to a low temperature to about 180 degrees.
Step2
Add peat moss, manure or compost to your soil before sterilizing it. Make sure the soil mixture is moist, but not wet. You should be able to make it into a ball with your fist and the ball should fall apart a little when you open your hand.
Step3
Place the soil into a metal baking pan or any container that isn't plastic. Spread the soil evenly out with your hands, making sure that it isn't deeper than four inches.
Step4
Cover the container very tightly with aluminum foil. Stick a meat thermometer through the foil in the middle of the container until it enters the middle of the soil.
Step5
Keep an eye on the thermometer by checking it occasionally until it reaches 180 degrees.
Step6
Keep the temperature at 180 degrees for about 30 minutes. Make sure it doesn't go over 200 degrees. Check the temperature often to see if regulating the temperature set on the oven is needed.
Step7
Remove the soil from the oven and allow it to cool a

WHOA...tough guy...

but its still shitty soil...

the foxfarm and a few others, are more like your nursery soil, or custom soils. mixed to perfection.

the walmart stuff will grow a plant, but not the same:shrug:

you can also add some diatomaceous earth (DE)  to the soil to prevent fungus gnats.  a thin layer on top usually does the trick.

DE is made of fossilized remains of diatoms, a tiny singe-celled algae that makes a shell of glass around itself for protection.  when the algae dies, the glass shell remains.  DE consists of these tiny shells, which is basically very fine ground up glass.  it cuts and slices up any little buggies that try to crawl through it, killing them right quick  :hellfire:

It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A Prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded." - Abraham Lincoln

NeeeeeeeeeeeVVVVVVVeeeeeeeeeeeRRRRRRRR  sterilize your soil.

Sterilized soil isn't soil, it's dirt (saw dust, gravel, and clay). The word soil implies that there are active decomposers in said substrate. If your truly worried about creepy crawlies pasteurize it. I can't remember ATM, but I think there's a web site shroomery.org that has a shitload of folks (and teks) that can teach the why and how of pasteurization.

Happy frog is a fox farm line, the blue bag is ocean forest.  Coaster, you live in cali, go find a hydro shop and get your soil there.  If you're only growing a plant or two at a time a 20 dollar bag will last a few grows.

Word to that foxfarm / good dutch soil and alike are "composted" under UV lights to kill bug eggs and shit.

Miracle grow is seriously like half the price but less than half as good.. even if miracle grow was a dollar think of your final product....
