Its rock solid like old ada. But all these are reviews from users who used they 1-2 yrs ago. I don't know about the recent ones.

As I told before a soil which disintegrates has better capability for growing plants. If a soil does not disentegrate that implies it wont get compact and will support root propagation and right oxygen levels to roots. But still disintegration and fertility are inversly proportional. You have to find out how many people got satisfactory growth for rooted plants and for how long .
Thanks & Regards..

Disintregation depends on humus content which is nothing but bioavailable nitrogen. More humus the soil, faster it will be disintregated. But again the high nitrogent content helps in rapid growth. So if these soils can be premixed with something which supports the root propagation properly, is the best combination. On the other hand substrates (i used this term purposefully) which claim less or no disintegration have very little humic content or nitrogen. These may not provide satisfactory results for long. Rooted plants like crypts or echinodorus are good for testing such substrates.
Thanks & Regards..

Got it dada!! But these soil claims that they shouldn't me mixed with anything. It seems like someone has to test the mentioned theory. Any volunteer? :D
