potting soil ?.

5 posts in this topic

we recieved a northfolk pine when my fatherinlaw passed away. i googled the plant for care instructions and said when you transplant it you should use "sterile" potting soil. SO, does anyone know what that is and where to get it? i never heard of it before.

Good one!

As far as sterile potting soil, you don't want fungi and some other diseases to be present in the soil. These can cause problems for your pine. I believe they do sell sterile potting soil which has been treated, but it's more $$$. You can also make it yourself with regular potting soil. Google it and you should come up with lots of hits. Basically involves heating the soil to 170-180 F. Makes an unpleasant smell though so beware.

    • New ABC / WaPo Poll Shows Drop In Trump Favorability Courtesy Of Aggressive "Oversamples" Jan 17, 2017 3:42 PM   In the month leading up to the election on November 8th, we repeatedly demonstrated how the mainstream media polls from the likes of ABC/Washington Post, CNN and Reuters repeatedly manipulated their poll samples to engineer their desired results, namely a large Hillary Clinton lead (see "New Podesta Email Exposes Playbook For Rigging Polls Through 'Oversamples'" and "ABC/Wapo Effectively Admit To Poll Tampering As Hillary's "Lead" Shrinks To 2-Points").  In fact, just 16 days prior to the election an ABC/Wapo poll showed a 12-point lead for Hillary, a result that obviously turned out to be embarrassingly wrong for the pollsters. But, proving they still got it, ABC/Washington Post and CNN are out with a pair of polls on Trump's favorability this morning that sport some of the most egregious "oversamples" we've seen.  The ABC/Wapo poll showed an 8-point sampling margin for Democrats with only 23% of the results taken from Republicans...   ...while the CNN poll showed a similar 8-point advantage for Democrats with only 24% of respondents identifying as Republicans.
