Description / Ecothrive Eco-Life Supercharged Living Soil

Overview

Organic growing and sustainable gardening are booming at the moment, and Ecothrive Eco-Life Soil takes performance to the next level with its unique supersoil formula. With a new peat-coco blend, high-grade vermicompost base and pumice for added structure and drainage, this fully organic and 100% living soil has been expertly crafted, blended and designed to create the perfect organic growing media.

The principle of a living soil is relatively simple - create a soil that is rich in everything your plant will need from seedling to harvest without ever having to add any fertilisers or additives through the growing process. This is done by combining a complex blend of raw ingredients that the living organisms in the soils slowly break down - releasing just the right amounts of nutrition for your plants throughout their lifecycle without ever being "too strong". Each batch neeeds to be mixed and allowed to decompose in multiple cycles to get just the right belnd of microbe activity and available nutrition. A true step above every other potting mix available.

Handcrafted indoors at a UK facility, the soil is only produced in small batches every week to guarantee the highest level of reliability, consistency and overall quality.

The microbes unlock the nutrients for plants.

No extra nutrients are needed. You don’t need to feed or flush. You’ll get no deficiencies, no lockouts & no burn. Just keep your media moist with a good quality water.  

 

  • 100% organic living soil
  • 45 Litres per box

  • No need to feed or flush - just keep your media moist
  • Ideal airy structure (added Irish peat + pumice)
  • UK made with eco-friendly production
  • Replicates a humus-rich fertile soil (rich in humic & fulvic acids)
  • Media is reusable (must add Ecothrive Life-Cycle Soil Amendment)

How It Works

Plants have evolved to work with microbes in the soil. 

Plants feed microbes. Microbes unlock nutrients & water for plants. It’s a symbiotic relationship. Microbes have a myriad of other functions, too. They help prevent pathogens, enhance uptake and generally keep the rootzone healthy. 

Eco-Life is alive with these microbes! And it’s pre-loaded with the nutrients plants need from seed to harvest.

A mix of long, medium & short release ingredients are used, which maximise plant growth, health & immunity.

There’s no need to add extra nutrients. Since you’re not feeding, there’s nothing to flush. Plants stop feeding and growth slows naturally at harvest.  Just keep your media moist with a good quality water.  This is the real, original way to grow organically. 

What's In It

Eco-Life is supercharged with:

Irish Sphagnum Peat Moss, Pumice, Thermophilic Compost, Worm Castings, Mealworm Frass (Charge), Neem Cake, Kelp (seaweed) meal, Crustacean meal, Volcanic Rockdust, Gypsum, Magnesium Limestone & Humic and Fulvic Acids (Nutrimate).

Seaweed Meal
It contains more than 60 trace elements that plants need. It’s a great source of plant growth hormones; indoles for root development; gibberellins for nutrient mobility.

Gypsum
It adds calcium & sulphur for aroma & flavour. It also improves water penetration & reduces waterlogging.

Vermicompost (Worm Castings)
The key part of the soil mix. It adds bacteria and fungi that break down other ingredients, making them available to the plants. Vermicompost also adds extra N, P & K. Worm castings come from an indoor farm and are fed organic fruit and vegetable pulp and peelings.

Basalt
Basalt (Volcanic Rock Dust) has a high silica content. It fortifies cell walls to thicken leaves, stems, branches. Plants are hardened to pests & climate extremes. They can also support bigger yields.

Insect Meal
A new natural and sustainable alternative to crustacean and fish meal. Made from the larvae of black soldier flies farmed sustainably on by-products from fruit and vegetable processing, insect meal is high in proteins, amino acids and omega 3's. As well as a highly available source of nitrogen. Insect meal also contributes soluble phosphorus, high levels of calcium and is a good source for the trace elements manganese and zinc. Being from insects, this meal is also high in chitin which can stimulate the plant's defences as well as being an excellent fungal food source. Insect meal has double the chitin content of frass! 

Mealworm Frass (Ecothrive Charge)
It boosts N, P & K and is brimming with beneficial microbes & mealworm castings. It also contains chitin to improves your plant’s immune response and defences.

Neem Cake
It’s a nutrient accumulator with deep-reaching roots. It pulls nutrition from areas in the soil plant roots don’t reach.  Neem is rich in N, P, K, Calcium & Magnesium and helps prevent pests & pathogens. 

Humic & Fulvic Acids
These come from a natural mined deposit of ancient vegetation and mimic the humus (the final product of decomposition). The deposit is rich in humic & fulvic acids. These help chelate nutrients and stimulate microbial activity. Overall, root & plant growth is improved.

How To Use

Per 1.2m2 area, we recommend 180 – 250L of Eco-Life in 4 x 45L pots.

Other pot sizes will work, as long as you use the right amount of media.

e.g. 2 x 90L pots or 6 x 30L pots or 1 x 200L bed would work.

Starting Off

You can start most plants off with Eco-Life. But if you’re growing sensitive plants, you can mix in some extra coco to begin with.

Watering

Build up your water level slowly. DO NOT WATER TO REACH RUN-OFF.

For your first water, add 5 – 10% of total pot volume. Check your pots and water every few days.

You want to keep the soil evenly moist, and not too wet. No final flush is needed.

Use good quality water.
