You have been asking for my soil scientist-approved potting soil recipe for houseplants. I have been keeping it "secret" mostly because it is wildly different than a majority of houseplant potting soil recipes. With my DIY potting soil that I use for indoor plants, I take into consideration a few things. Such as my current lifestyle, watering personality & even my pot type (porous or non-porous).
EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT I AM MAKING A PLANT SENSOR
For updates and help designing sign up here: https://gardeningincanada.earthone.io
The sensor is not simply going to tell you if your humidity is high enough or when you need to water your plants. The purpose of the sensor is to help you learn while optimizing plant growth in your microenvironment.
This is being done using plant science such as VPD. This means we won’t tell you to simply raise your humidity we will teach you what the best humidity is for your temperature/environment. This will maximize growth but also prevent against harmful fungi. Another thing that makes this plant sensor different then others is the pH sensor. This is going to be key to ensuring your plants have optimal nutrient availability despite the inherent acidic pH of a potting soil mix.
1. We need your HELP. Seriously… What would you name the sensor?
2. Keep your eye out for surveys to help select what features the app should have, how it should look, etc.
BUT there is only a limited quantity available for the first batch coming out in July. To make sure you get your sensor before they sell out sign up for the newsletter. You will be the first people to know the sensor is ready to go!

A B O U T M E:
Ashley is a soil scientist who has had a passion for plants since she was a small child. In the long summers as a child, she would garden alongside her grandmother and it was then that she realized her love for greenery. With years of great studying, Ashley had begun her post-secondary education at the University of Saskatchewan.
At first, her second love, animals, was the career path she chose but while doing her undergrad she realized that her education would take her elsewhere. And with that, four years later she graduated from the University of Saskatchewan with a bachelor’s degree in science and a major in Soil Science.
Some of Ashley’s interests are YouTube, in which she posts informative videos about plants and gardening. The focus of Ashley’s YouTube channel is to bring science to gardening in a way that is informative but also helpful to others learning to garden. She also talks about the importance of having your own garden and the joys of gardening indoors. Ashley continues to study plants in her free time and hopes to expand her YouTube channel as well as her reach to up-and-coming gardeners.
