Reusing pots of dirt

Sat Apr 08, 2017 10:08 am

Hi!
I was just wondering if anybody knows if it's ok to reuse plant dirt for new seeds or is it used, even though the previous seed never grew? I know new dirt is not expensive but I'm also a little lazy Image
Thanks Image

I also reuse plant dirt. I tend to use it for larger plants and not for seedlings, but I have no rational reasons so I'm sure that it will be fine!

I highly recommend that you either bake potting soil or nuke it to sterilize it!! Damping off is almost guaranteed if you don't. But never toss it out :)
