    Yes it is what ya want dude! You don't need "Super Soil" to have mycorrhizae. Most likely your compost is inoculated with Beneficial Indigenous Microbes.Think of that as an extension of your root system, don't let it dry out 100%. Also feed it a teaspoon per gal of molasses or sucanat to keep it alive. Good job!

    nice, you may not want it quite so wet as to have condensation, just moist to the touch in there. The microlife dies when it dries out completely. Also as a sidenote, you can add BTI dunks, nematodes, as well as lactobacillus to your current mix and it will prevent pest and bad bacteria from colonizing in your soil.

    Have you looked into or tried reusing your soil? I am new to it but in the long run it could save alot of $ as the mix can last up to 3 years.
