Is my soil any good?
    #832374 - 04/03/18 11:35 AM (2 years, 1 month ago)

I have 3, 7 gal pots filled with dirt that have been sitting in my mud room for like 3-4 months. I used them to start some plants that ended up male. And just never had a place to put the dirt.  Problem is my dog also stays in this area and he sheds a lot.  There’s dog hair all over the top layer of soil in all the pots.  I’m wondering if it would be a bad idea to get rid of as much of it as I can maybe throwing out the top layer of soil and re using the rest for my next project. I’m thinking it could be a problem since the dog is in and out if the house and who knows what’s on his hair and god knows I probably won’t get every little hair out of the soil.    What do you think?

Get a grow tent, and replace the unknown quality soil by coco coir. You will have to buy nutrients, but the roots will grow stronger.

Already have a grow tent.

Not really a fan of having to buy nutrients I’m pretty happy with soil and the few things I add to it.

I could just go buy more soil but I hate to throw out soil that’s never even seen a full grow.

people hair not so much because of chemicals we put in them.
