Redwoods Soil
    #486813 - 10/10/10 11:33 PM (6 years, 1 month ago)

If i were to go to the deep redwood forests and bring back the nice composted soil that builds up on top of trees' branches and stuff,...would it be good soil to grow with?

I would of course test the PH and probably mix in other nutrients and things like perlite/vermiculite and such, but would this be a good idea or a bad one?

That seems like a lot of effort to go through when you can just pick up a bag at the local hydro store.  And since your in SW Oregon I know you have them around you. 

I would be hesitant to use ANY outdoor soil with out at least pasteurizing it first.  That soil outdoors has a whole ecosystem to fight off any pests that are around.  But if you take it and put it in a bucket inside you eliminate that and if there are any pests it could be a potential problem.

Take a look at the pictures of big outdoor crops. Not many of em are in the redwoods. Reason is that the pine needles raise the ph of the native soil so that plants (the type we like) grow like shit under them.

That and it's not smart to use outdoor soil with out pasteurization.
