How can we get more soils in the us. From everything I have heard the us won't let anyone import them because there is plant matter in most soils. But since these are being used for aquatic applications and not gardening per say, why should that matter.

The ever growing list of soils to try is growing.

Ista

Control soil

Etc etc

More soil's will be available in the USA if the hobby grows, probably just not enough of a market some companies are making soils for export to pass FDA standards now.

It would be vwy possible for us to make a soil given the right equipment procedures and ingredients. The trick is getting the lists of the soils that are proven effective and seeing what they have in common and go from there.

peat, minerals, ferts, micro and macro nutrients, organic matter, a solid form.
