Sterile potting soil is never a good idea. This is particularly true is you are using an organic potting soil setup. Organic Potting soil for houseplants need to biologically diverse. The organic potting soil for houseplant needs to have a wide range of microbes that help with nutrient cycling and even pest management. There are a few amendments we can add to soil for indoor plants to help increase the biological activity. This in turn means a wider range of bioavailable nutrients. This Gardening In Canada video looks at how to use humic acid for houseplants. And why humic acid for potting soil helps with biological activity in the soil.

PLEASE SUBSCRIBE if you are wanting to know more on gardening in Canada & gardening in Colder Climates in general. My methods apply to the USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 1 - Zone 6. As a soil scientist I always try to incorporate science into my videos. Soil science can be over complicated so allow me to guide you.

Leave a comment and let me know where your are gardening. And let me know what videos you would like to see in the future!

Ashley is an agronomist 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.
