Nicolas Pascal
01:08:14
For indoor plants can put a bucket of water on a chair and let ropes or paper strips fall down into the soil of the pots. The capillarity will drive the water down

Bryce
01:15:19
The soil on my property is construction site clay, with ~5cm of topsoil/composted leaves, I'm not seeing any worms or life besides ants, beetles and spiders. I'm starting to improve the soil since moving in, can I expect worms to find their way in, or do I need to get them from somewhere?
Keighley Williams
01:16:06
similar to ours, my partner has composted and dug nearly all our soil, we have some good trees and flowers growing now
